CARE AND CLEANING
A clothes dryer produces combustible lint. The
dryer must be connected to an outdoors exhaust.
Regularly inspect the outdoor exhaust opening
and remove any accumulation of lint around the
opening and in the surrounding area.
Clean the lint ﬁ lter after every load.
Do not store or place laundry products on top of
dryer at any time. They can damage the ﬁ nish or
To reduce risk of ﬁ re or serious injury to persons or property,
comply with the basic warnings listed in the Important
Safety Instructions and those listed below.
• Before cleaning the dryer interior, unplug the electrical
power cord to avoid electrical shock hazards.
• Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning the dryer
interior. Hazardous fumes or electrical shock could occur.
• Clean the lint ﬁ lter after every load. Lint build-up on the
ﬁ lter restricts air ﬂ ow, which causes longer drying times.
The ﬁ lter is located at the bottom of the door opening. Re-
move by pulling straight up. Remove the lint and replace
the ﬁ lter.
• Occasionally a waxy build-up may form on the lint ﬁ lter
and/or moisture sensing bars from using dryer-added
fabric softener sheets. To remove this build-up, wash them
with warm, soapy water. Dry the ﬁ lter thoroughly and
replace. Do not operate the dryer without the lint ﬁ lter in
• If the dryer drum becomes stained from noncolorfast
fabrics, clean the drum with a damp cloth and a mild liquid
household cleanser. Remove cleanser residue before dry-
ing the next load.
• Every 18 months an authorized servicer should clean the dry-
er cabinet interior and exhaust duct. These areas can collect
lint and dust over time. An excessive amount of lint build-up
could result in inefﬁ cient drying and possible ﬁ re hazard.
• Clean the cabinet with mild soap and water. Never use
harsh, gritty or abrasive cleansers.
• If the cabinet becomes stained, clean with diluted chlo-
rine bleach (1 part bleach to 8 parts water). Rinse several
times with clear water.
• Remove glue residue from tape or labels with a mixture of
warm water and mild detergent. Or, touch residue with the
sticky side of the tape or label.
• When cleaning chrome parts use a window cleaner with
ammonia or mild soap and water.
• Before moving the dryer, place a strip of cardboard or thin
ﬁ berboard under the front leveling legs to prevent damage
to the ﬂ oor.
