When you select a cycle, the preset Auto Dry Level (Auto Dry) or
Timed Dry settings for that cycle will glow. Modifiers allow you to
change the preset settings and further customize your cycles.
Auto Dry Level with Ultra Moisture Sensing
Auto Dry Level with Ultra Moisture Sensing provides the most
accurate drying results in the shortest time. This can help you
save money on utility bills and reduce the risk of fabric damage.
Dryness level is determined by dual sensor strips that measure
the moisture in your clothes. Once the desired dryness level is
reached, the electronic sensors signal the dryer to stop to
prevent overdrying your clothes.
For all Auto Dry cycles, the Auto Dry Level is automatically set at
Normal. This setting provides the recommended fabric care for
your cycle. The display will show the estimated time (in minutes)
required to reach an approximate 80% dry level. After the 80%
dryness level is reached, the remaining drying time required will
be displayed as actual time remaining.
Use the Normal setting to dry most loads. At the end of the cycle,
feel the dried clothes.
If they are damper than you like, select a setting above
Normal the next time you dry a similar load.
If they are drier than you like, select a setting below Normal
the next time you dry a similar load.
To change the dryness level
Press AUTO DRY LEVEL until the desired dryness level glows.
NOTE: Auto Dry Level is not a selectable option with the
EXPRESS DRY™ cycle, the Air Dry cycle or Touch Up.
To change from estimated to actual drying time
Press MORE TIME or LESS TIME until the desired time is
displayed. The light for Timed Dry (Actual) will glow.
Timed Dry
Use Timed Dry to select a specific amount of drying time. The
preset settings for EXPRESS DRY™, Air Dry and Touch Up are
automatically set to Timed Dry.
To change the time
Press MORE TIME or LESS TIME until the desired time shows in
the display.

The End of Cycle Signal produces an audible sound when the
drying cycle is finished. Promptly removing clothes at the end of
the cycle reduces wrinkling.
