• Follow the guidelines below for preparing the load for drying.
• Read the Operating Instructions card for operating your specific model.
• Always read and follow fabric care labels and laundry product labels.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons, read Important
Safety Instructions before operating this dryer.
Prepare items for drying.
Dry items of similar fabric, weight and construction in the same load.
Separate dark items from light-colored items. Separate items that shed lint from
those that attract lint. If an item sheds lint, turn it inside out.
Be sure buckles, buttons and trim are heatproof and won't damage the drum finish.
Close zippers, fasten hooks and Velcro®-like fasteners. Tie strings and sashes to
prevent snagging and tangling.
If possible, turn pockets inside out for even drying.
Check for stains which may not have been removed in washing. Dryer heat may
permanently set some stains. Repeat stain removal process before drying.
Place small items in a mesh bag to prevent tangling and for easy removal.
Check that lint screen is clean and in place.
Load the dryer.
The average load will fill the drum 1/3 to 1/2 full. Items need room to tumble freely
for even drying and less wrinkling. Do not overload dryer.
When drying large items, dry only 2 or 3 at a time. Fill out the load with small and
medium sized items.
For delicate or very small loads, add 2 lint-free towels for better drying, less
wrinkling, and to prevent grease stains caused by fabric softener sheets.
Do not overdry items. Overdrying can cause wrinkling, shrinkage, harshness, and
a build-up of static electricity, which can produce more lint.
If desired, add a dryer fabric softener sheet.
Close the dryer door and set dryer controls (some models).
See Operating Instructions card for your specific model controls.
Turn cycle selector clockwise to the desired setting.
Start the dryer.
Push Start button for 2 seconds.
To add or remove items when the dryer is running, open the door. The dryer will
always stop when the door is opened. Allow the drum to come to a complete stop
before reaching inside.
To restart dryer, close the door, then push the START button for 2 seconds.
The dryer will not start if the cycle selector is in the OFF position.
When the cycle ends, remove items immediately and hang or fold. If load is
removed before the cycle ends, turn cycle selector to OFF.


Cycle Signal Control (some models)
When the Cycle Signal Control is ON, a signal will sound at the end of each cycle and during
the Press Saver setting (some models). The volume is adjustable on some models.
Drum Light (some models)
A drum light will come on whenever the door is opened to illuminate the dryer drum during
loading and unloading. Closing the door turns off the light.
Reversible Dryer Door
Your dryer is equipped with a reversible door. The door can be hinged on the right or left
side. Refer to the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for directions on changing the door.
Drying Rack (some models)
Use the drying rack to dry items which should not be tumble dried.
1. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen.
2. Insert drying rack into the dryer drum. Place the front bar under the lip of the lint screen
3. Place items to be dried on top of the rack. Weight should not exceed 10 lbs. Leave space
between items, but do not let items hang over the sides or through the grids. Do not
tumble other items when using the drying rack.
4. Select a timed dry setting best suited for items being dried. Use only the Air Fluff (no
heat) temperature setting for items containing plastic, foam rubber, rubber-like
materials, feathers or down.
5. When items are dry, remove the rack and replace the lint screen. If lint screen is not in
place, tumbling items could enter the exhaust system and cause damage to the dryer.
