Drying, Cycle and Temperature Tips

Select the correct cycle and temperature for your load.
Cool Down tumbles the load without heat during the last few
minutes of all cycles to make the load easier to handle.
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 and temperature tips
Dry most loads using the Energy Preferred Automatic
Setting (
).
*
Use a High heat setting for drying heavyweight items such as
towels and work clothes.
Use a Low heat setting for drying lightweight items such as
lingerie, blouses, dresses, and some knits.
Use a no heat (air) setting for rubber, plastic or heat sensitive
fabrics.
Line dry bonded or laminated fabrics.
If you are unsure of the temperature to select for a load, select a
lower setting rather than a higher setting.
NOTE: If you have questions about drying temperatures for
various loads, refer to the care label directions.

Cycle Descriptions

Cycle Control Knob
Automatic Cycle(s)
Dry most loads using the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (*).
Your Automatic cycle(s) shuts off when the selected dryness is
reached. The Cycle Control Knob will not move until the load is
almost dry. After the cool down, the knob automatically turns to
an Off area and tumbling stops.
If the load is drier than you like, select Less Dry the next time
you dry a similar load.
If the load is not as dry as you would like, complete drying
using a Timed Drying cycle. Select Very Dry the next time you
dry a similar load.
Your dryer has both a High Heat cycle (Permanent Press/Heavy
or Timed Drying) and a Low Heat cycle (Delicate). Always follow
care label directions when available, especially for delicate items.
NOTE: The Automatic cycles use an automatic dryness control
that senses the exhaust temperature and determines the dryness
of the load.
Timed Drying Cycle
Your dryer offers High Heat in the Timed Drying cycle. Use the
Timed Drying cycle to complete drying if some items are damp
after Automatic drying. Timed Drying is also useful for:
Bulky items and large loads that require a long drying time.
Damp drying items; turn the Cycle Control Knob to 30
minutes or less.
Damp Dry Feature
Use this feature to dry items to damp level or to dry damp items
that do not require an entire drying cycle. Two examples are
heavy cottons, such as jeans, which you do not want to become
stiff, or cotton clothes which are easier to press when damp.
TUMBLE PRESS
®
Feature
The TUMBLE PRESS feature removes wrinkles from clothes that
have been packed in a suitcase, or from items not removed from
the dryer at the end of a cycle. Put only a few items in your dryer
for best results when using this feature. As soon as the dryer
stops, fold or put the items on hangers.
Fluff Air Cycle
Use the Fluff Air cycle for items that require drying without heat
such as rubber, plastic and heat sensitive fabrics. This chart
shows examples of items that can be dried using the Fluff Air
cycle.
Type of Load
Foam rubber - pillows, padded bras,
stuffed toys
Plastic - Shower curtains, tablecloths
Rubber-backed rugs
Olefin, polypropylene, sheer nylon
(*Minutes) Reset cycle to complete drying, if needed.
When using Fluff Air
Check to see that coverings are securely stitched.
Shake and fluff pillows by hand periodically during cycle.
Dry item completely. Foam rubber pillows are slow to dry.
