Stopping Your Dryer

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

Pausing or Restarting

To pause the dryer at any time
Open the door or press STOP/CANCEL once.
To restart the dryer
Close the door and press START.
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. You will need to select new cycle settings before restarting
the dryer.

Loading

Properly loading your dryer can lower your utility bill and prolong
the life of your garments.
Loading suggestions
Load the dryer by the amount of space items take up, not by
their weight.
Do not overload the dryer. This causes uneven drying and
wrinkling.

Drying and Cycle Tips

Select the correct cycle and temperature for your load.
The display shows the estimated cycle time when your dryer is
automatically sensing the dryness level of your load. If a cycle is
using Timed Dry, 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. 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 you use fabric softener sheets, use only ones labeled as
dryer safe. 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.

Cycle tips
Dry most loads using the preset cycle settings.
Use this chart as a guide to dry various loads. Drying
temperature and Auto Dry Level (Normal Dry) are preset when
you choose an Auto Dry cycle. You can select a different
dryness level, depending on your load (see "Modifiers").
For a Timed cycle, drying temperature is preset, but the time
can be adjusted.
