the dryer.
Changing the Drum Light

wall of the dryer. Remove the screw located in the lower right
corner of the cover. Remove the cover.
3. Turn bulb counterclockwise. Replace the bulb with a
10-watt appliance bulb only. Replace the cover and
secure with the screw.
4. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
Is a coin, button, or paper clip caught between the drum
and front or rear of the dryer?
Check the front and rear edges of the drum for small objects.

Are the four legs installed, and is the dryer level front to
back and side to side?
The dryer may vibrate if not properly installed. See the
Installation Instructions.
Is the clothing knotted or balled up?
When balled up, the load will bounce, causing the dryer to
vibrate. Separate the load items and restart the dryer.

tripped?
