preset to "ON." The other cycles will retain the WRINKLE
SHIELD™ feature setting. (For example, if you select the
WRINKLE SHIELD™ feature in the Normal cycle, the
WRINKLE SHIELD™ feature will be on the next time you
select the Normal cycle.)
NOTE: If you do not select the WRINKLE SHIELD™ feature, the
dryer stops after the cool down period.

Drying Rack Option

The drying rack is useful for drying items you would not
necessarily want to tumble dry or that you would normally line dry
(for example, sweaters).
If your model does not have a drying rack, you may be able to
purchase one for your model. To find out whether your model
allows drying rack usage and for information on ordering, please
refer to the front page of the manual or contact the dealer from
whom you purchased your dryer.
