approximately 80% dry. This allows you to
remove faster-drying lightweight items or items that you
want to iron or hang dry.
MY CYCLe
MY CYCLE allows you to store a customized dry
cycle for future use. It allows you to save favorite
temperature, dry level, and other options for a
cycle, and then recall them at the touch of a button.
NOTE: You can only save the customized settings for one
cycle at a time. Pressing and holding the MY CYCLE
button will overwrite any previously saved cycle.

WrINKLe gUArD
Selecting this option will tumble the clothes
after the cycle ends for a few seconds every
few minutes without heat. This option is active
for 150 minutes after the end of the cycle, or until the
door is opened. This helps prevent wrinkles if the clothes
are not removed immediately after the cycle has
finished.
NOTE: NEVER tumble dry a load of clothing with the
rack installed. When the rack is installed, the drum will
rotate as usual, but the rack will not move. Make sure all
articles to be dried remain completely on the rack and
cannot fall off or be pulled off by the turning drum. Be
sure to remove the rack after use.
CHIMe
The CHIME button adjusts the volume of the
chime or turns it off. Press the button repeatedly
until the desired sound level is reached.
CONTrOL LOCK
Use this option to disable the controls. All
controls will be disabled except for the
POWER button. Once set, the CONTROL
LOCK must be turned off before the controls
can be used. After the dryer has shut off, the POWER
button will allow the dryer to be turned on, but the
controls will remain locked. When the CONTROL LOCK
is set, the CONTROL LOCK icon will be shown in the
display.
Press and hold the SAVE ENERGY+ button for three
seconds to activate or deactivate the CONTROL LOCK.
SAVe eNergY+
This option helps to reduce the energy
consumption of the Normal cycle,
depending on the size of the load. The drying
time will change when you select the Save
Energy+ option.
NOTE: The SAVE ENERGY+ option is turned on by
default on the Normal cycle. If you want a faster drying
time, turn off the SAVE ENERGY+ option on the Normal
cycle.

STEAM FEATURES

Using the STeAM reFreSH cycle
The STEAM REFRESH cycle uses the power of steam
to quickly reduce wrinkles and odor in fabrics. It also
refreshes wrinkled clothes that have been stored for
an extended period of time, and it can make heavily
wrinkled clothes easier to iron. STEAM REFRESH can
also be used to help reduce odors in fabrics. Use this
feature with small loads (1 - 4 items).
