DRYER RESULTS
Clothes are not drying satisfactorily, drying times are
too long, or load is too hot
Is the lint screen clogged with lint?
Lint screen shold be cleaned before each load.
Is the exhaust vent or outside exhaust hood clogged with
lint, restricting air movement?
Run the dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold your hand under
the outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you
do not feel air movement, clean exhaust system of lint or
replace exhaust vent with heavy metal or flexible vent. See
"Installation Instructions".
Are fabric softener sheets blocking the grille?
Use only one fabric softener sheet, and use it only once.
Is the exhaust vent the correct length?
Check that the exhaust vent is not too long or has too
many turns. Long venting will increase drying times. See
"Installation Instructions".
Is the exhaust vent diameter the correct size?
Use 4" (102 mm) diameter vent material.
Is the dryer located in a room with temperature below
45°F (7°C)?
Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures
above 45°F (7°C).
Is the dryer located in a closet?
Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top and
bottom of the door. The front of the dryer requires a minimum
of 1" (25 mm) of airspace, and, for most installations, the
rear of the dryer requires 5" (127 mm). See "Installation
Instructions".
