Note: The instructions appearing in this
Owner's Guide are not meant to cover
every possible condition and situation that
may occur. Common sense and caution
must be practiced when installing,
operating and maintaining any appliance.
To prevent personal injury or damage to the dryer, the electrical power cord must be plugged into a properly grounded system. The third
grounding prong must never be removed. Never ground the dryer to a gas pipe. Do not use an extension cord or an adaptor plug.
ALWAYS disconnect the dryer from the electrical supply before attempting any service or cleaning. Failure to do so can result in electrical
shock or injury.
Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning dryer interior. Hazardous fumes or electrical shock could occur.
To prevent injury, do not reach into the dryer if the drum is moving. Wait until the dryer has stopped completely before reaching into the
drum.
To prevent injury and damage to the dryer:
All repairs and servicing must be performed by an authorized servicer unless specifically recommended in this Owner's Guide. Use only authorized
factory parts.
Do not tamper with controls.
Do not install or store the dryer where it will be exposed to the weather.
A thermal limiter switch automatically turns off the motor in the unlikely event of an overheated situation (electric dryers only). A service technician must
replace the thermal limiter switch after correcting the fault.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.

Important Safety Instructions

Read all instructions before using this dryer.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using this dryer, comply
with the basic warnings listed below.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Prevent Fire
Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline,
cleaning solvents, kerosene, waxes, etc. Do not store these items on or near the dryer. These substances give
off vapors or chemical reactions 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.
DRYER
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 spontaneous combustion.
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 operate the dryer if the lint screen is blocked, damaged or missing. Fire hazard,
overheating and damage to fabrics can occur. If your dryer has a drying rack, always replace the lint screen
when finished using the drying rack.
- Risk of Fire - A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. The dryer must be connected
to an exhaust outdoors. Regularly inspect the outdoor exhaust opening and remove any accumulation of
lint around the outdoor exhaust opening and in the surrounding area.
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 product.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in fire, explosion, serious bodily injury and/or damage to
the rubber or plastic parts of the dryer.
Protect Children
Do not allow children to play on or in the dryer. Close supervision of children is necessary when
the dryer is used near children. As children grow, teach them the proper, safe use of all appliances.
Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing materials after the dryer is unpacked. Children
might use them for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads or plastic sheets can become airtight chambers.
Keep laundry products out of children's reach. To prevent personal injury, observe all warnings
on product labels.
Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded, remove the dryer door to prevent
accidental entrapment.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
Prevent Injury
To prevent shock hazard and assure stability during operation, the dryer must be installed and
electrically grounded by a qualified service person in accordance with local codes. Installation instructions are
packed in the dryer for the installer's reference. Refer to INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for detailed grounding
procedures. If the dryer is moved to a new location, have it checked and reinstalled by a qualified service person.
