fabric selected. (See "Drying and Cycle Tips" chart.)
When you select a cycle, your dryer selects a preset temperature,
Auto Dry Level (Normal) and either Auto Dry (Estimated) or Timed
Dry (Actual) Time Remaining. The time displayed for the Auto Dry
cycles are estimated times. Part way through the cycle, the dryer
turns the Auto Dry (Estimated) Time Remaining indicator light off
and displays the actual time remaining on the display. The Timed
Dry (Actual) indicator light will glow only if a Timed Dry cycle was
selected. (See "Modifiers.")
