level in the load and shuts off when the load reaches the
selected dryness.

Select the temperature
by moving the Cycle Control
knob to (High Heat) for bigger or heavier loads or (Low
Heat) for smaller or lighter loads.
Automatic Dry
Select the temperature
from the temperature
based on the fabrics in your load.
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob featuring Automatic Dry is
not shown.
After drying a load in any of the Automatic cycles, check
the dryness.
If the load is drier than you like, select a setting closer to
Less Dry the next time you dry a similar load.
If a load is not a dry as you like, complete drying using a
Timed cycle. Select a setting closer to Very Dry the next
time you dry a similar load.
Drying time varies with an Automatic cycle. The type of
fabric, size of the load, and the dryness selected affect
drying time. See "Temperature tips."

are still damp after the Automatic cycle. Also use Timed
Drying for heavyweight and bulky items such as
and work clothes or large loads that require a
long drying time. Set the temperature selector, if available,
to High Heat. On some models, you may use the Timed
