Press and hold START button until dryer starts (about
1 second).
Once an Automatic cycle has started, the WRINKLE
SHIELD™ feature and cycle signals can be adjusted. Press
the PAUSE/CANCEL key twice to stop the dryer and clear the
settings, allowing you to select another cycle and Dryness
Level.
NOTE: Time and Temperature are not adjustable for
Automatic Cycles. Pressing the DRY TIME or TEMPERATURE
buttons will cause a triple beep, indicating that the time
cannot be changed.
How Automatic Cycles Work
The AccelerCare™ function improves drying performance
with Auto Moisture Sensing Plus, which advances the cycle
as moisture is extracted from clothing. A thermistor
(electronic temperature sensor) and moisture sensing strips in
the dryer drum help measure the amount of moisture in the
clothes as they tumble. An electronic control determines the
load type to help save time, avoid overdrying, and increase
the accuracy of the end dryness level. After the first 5 minutes
of an automatic cycle, the estimated time display will adjust
based on the approximate load size, cycle, dryness level
selected and amount of moisture left in the clothes. When the
clothes have reached approximately 80% of the dryness level
selected, the estimated time display will adjust again,
showing the final drying time. The AccelerCare™ feature
takes the guesswork out of drying time and enhances fabric
care.
To use a Manual Cycle
NOTE: A light next to each feature will glow green when the
feature is selected or will glow amber when the feature is
selectable. The light will not glow when the selection is
unavailable with the cycle or option combinations selected.
Press POWER.
Rotate the dial to select a Manual Cycle.
Press the DRY TIME up or down buttons until the desired
drying time is displayed. Press DRY TIME, and the time
will change by 1-minute intervals. Press and hold DRY
TIME, and the time will change by 5-minute intervals. The
initial time displayed is the actual drying time.
The Dry Time feature can be used only with Manual
Cycles.
Press TEMPERATURE until the desired temperature
glows green.
Temperature settings can be changed only with Manual
Cycles.
Press the WRINKLE SHIELD™ feature button if this
option is desired.

another cycle.

Stopping Your Dryer

To stop your dryer at any time
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice or open the door.

Pausing or Restarting

To pause the dryer at any time
Open the door or press PAUSE/CANCEL once.
To restart the dryer
Close the door and press and hold START button until dryer
starts.
NOTE: Drying will continue from where the cycle was interrupted,
if you close the door and press Start within 5 minutes. If the cycle
is interrupted for more than 5 minutes, the dryer will shut off.
Select new cycle settings before restarting the dryer.

Control Locked

This feature allows you to lock your settings to avoid unintended
use of the dryer. You can also use the Control Locked feature to
avoid unintended cycle or option changes during dryer operation.
To enable the Control Locked feature when dryer is
running:
Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for
3 seconds. The control is locked when a single beep is heard and
the Control Locked status light is on.
When the dryer is off, it is not necessary to press the Control
On button before activating the Control Locked feature.
To unlock:
Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for
3 seconds to turn this feature off.
NOTE: When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the
dryer can be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but
cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

Drying and Cycle Tips

Select the correct cycle and dryness level or temperature for your
load. If an Automatic Cycle is running, the display shows the
estimated cycle time when your dryer is automatically sensing
the dryness level of your load. If a Manual Cycle is running, the
display shows the exact number of minutes remaining in the
cycle.
Cool Down tumbles the load without heat during the last few
minutes of all cycles. Cool Down makes the loads easier to
handle and reduces wrinkling. The length of the Cool Down
depends on the load size and dryness level.
Drying tips
Follow care label directions when they are available.
If desired, add a fabric softener sheet. Follow package
instructions.
Remove the load from the dryer as soon as tumbling stops to
reduce wrinkling. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits and synthetic fabrics.
