Important Safety Instructions
• DO NOT dry items that have been previously
cleaned in, soaked in, or spotted with
gasoline, cleaning solvents, kerosene, waxes,
or other flammable or explosive substances.
DO NOT store these items on or near the
dryer. These substances give off vapors that
could ignite or explode.
• DO NOT place items exposed to cooking oils
in your dryer. Items contaminated with cooking
oils may contribute to a chemical reaction that
could cause a load to catch fire. To reduce the
risk of fire due to contaminated loads, the final
part of a tumble dryer cycle occurs without
heat (cool down period). Avoid stopping a
tumble dryer before the end of the drying
cycle unless all items are quickly removed and
spread out so that the heat is dissipated.
• DO NOT dry articles containing rubber, plastic
or similar materials such as bras, galoshes,
bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby pants, plastic
bags and pillows that may melt or burn.
Some rubber materials, when heated, can
under certain circumstances produce fire by
• DO NOT dry items containing feathers or
down, foam rubber, plastics similarly textured,
• DO NOT operate the dryer if the lint screen
is blocked, damaged or missing. Fire hazard,
overheating and damage to fabrics can occur.
Clean the lint screen before or after each
load. The interior of the dryer, lint screen
housing and exhaust duct should be cleaned
approximately every 18 months by qualified
service personnel. An excessive amount of
lint build-up in these areas could result in
inefficient drying and possible fire. See Care
and Cleaning .
• DO NOT obstruct the flow of ventilating air.
DO NOT stack or place laundry or throw rugs
against the front or back of the dryer.
• DO NOT spray any type of aerosol into, on or
near dryer at any time.
• DO NOT use fabric softeners or products
to eliminate static unless recommended by
the manufacturer of the fabric softener or
