DRYER OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
The signal will beep and the status lights will flash, but the original
cycle will continue.
Auto Dry cycles take the guesswork out of drying time. Loads
dried using the Towels, Normal, Perm Press and Delicate cycles
will dry automatically at the selected temperature to the desired
dryness level. The dryer uses sensing bars to sense the moisture
level of the load as it tumbles through heated air. Auto Dry cycles
save time and energy and protects fabrics. The estimated drying
time will be displayed for about 5 minutes. Then the outside of
the display will light up in a circular track to indicate the drying
time is automatically being determined by the sensors. When
the load has reached the selected dryness level, it will continue
to tumble, unheated, during a Cool Down period. This helps
reduce wrinkling and makes items easier to handle during
unloading. The estimated Cool Down time will be displayed.
Drying time varies depending on size and dampness of load and
fabric type. If the load is too small or almost dry, the sensing
bars may not detect enough moisture to continue the cycle and
the cycle may end after a few minutes. Select a Timed Dry
setting to dry such loads.
Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and electrical
voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying time.
Select this Auto Dry cycle for towel loads.
Select this Auto Dry cycle for cotton items.
Select this Auto Dry cycle for cottons and blends with a no-iron
Select this Auto Dry cycle for knits and delicate items.
Select this cycle to quickly dry a small load made up of just a
few items. It provides approximately 20 minutes of tumbling
followed by a 10-minute cool down period.
Select this cycle to dry a comforter, blanket, sleeping bag or
similar item.Cool Down is approximately 10 minutes.
To manually select the drying time for any load, turn the knob to
a numbered setting. Drying times from 15 to 90 minutes are
available in 15-minute increments. You will not be able to select
a cycle or dryness level. Timed Dry is recommended when using
the No Heat option.
Note: To change cycles, press Pause/Cancel twice.
To avoid fire hazard, do not use heat to dry items
containing feathers or down, foam rubber, plastic, or similarly
textured, rubber-like materials. Use the No Heat setting only.
