increase or decrease your energy efficiency. Some special cycles will not provide a display.
Indicator lights
Five LED lights indicate the current dryer status moving from left to right as the cycle progresses.
Demand Side Management (on some models) - When connected to your power company's rate monitoring system, the
dryer will automatically delay starting if the rates are high/critical. An "ES" will be displayed and the selected cycle will
start after 4 hours or when the rates drop to low/medium, whichever comes first. If the rates are not high/critical, the
selected cycle will start immediately.
