breakers have not tripped. Replace the fuses or reset the circuit
breaker. If the problem continues, call an electrician.
Electric dryers require 240-volt power supply. Check with
a qualified electrician.

Electric dryers require 240-volt power supply. Check with
a qualified electrician.
For gas dryers, make sure that the valve on the gas supply line
is open.
The water inlet valve on the dryer is used during the Steam function.
If the dryer has just been installed or unused for an extended period,
the valve may be louder and run longer. This is normal.
NOTE: The valve may make this noise even with no water line
connected.
This is normal. The thumping sound should diminish after a few
minutes of use.
Check the front and rear edges of the drum for small objects. Clean
out pockets before laundering.
The dryer may vibrate if not properly installed. See the
installation instructions. All four dryer feet should be in firm
contact with the floor.
When balled up, the load will bounce, causing the dryer to
vibrate. Separate the load items and restart the dryer.
On gas dryers, you may hear the gas valve clicking as it opens
and closes. This is normal.
Clean lint screen before each load.
Run the dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold your hand under the
outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you do not
feel air movement, clean exhaust system of lint or replace
exhaust vent with heavy metal or flexible metal vent. See
"installation instructions".
Check that the exhaust vent is not too long or has too many
turns. Long venting will increase drying times. See 'qnstallation
instructions".
Clothes not contacting
the moisture sensors during Automatic
cycles. See "Level the Dryer" in the 'qnstallation Instructions".
Use 4" (102 mm) diameter vent material.
Select the right temperature
for the types of garments being
dried. See "Cycle Guide".
Separate the load to tumble freely.
