Do not use a plastic vent.
Do not use a metal foil vent.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death
or fire.
Good air flow
Along with heat, dryers require good air flow to efficiently
dry laundry. Proper venting will reduce your drying times and
improve your energy savings. See installation Instructions.
The venting system attached to the dryer plays a big role
in good air flow.
Service calls caused by improper venting are not covered by
the warranty and will be paid by the customer, regardless of
who installed the dryer.
air flow
Cleaning your lint screen before each load.
Replace plastic or foil vent material
with 4" (102 mm) diameter heavy, rigid
vent material.
[] Use the shortest length of vent possible.
[] Use no more than four 90 ° elbows in a vent system;
each bend and curve reduces air flow.
Remove lint and debris from the exhaust hood.
Remove lint from the entire length of the vent system
at least every 2 years. When cleaning is complete, be
sure to follow the Installation Instructions supplied with
your dryer for final product check.
[] Clear away items from the front of the dryer.
Use Automatic
Cycles for better
care and energy
Use the Automatic Cycles to provide the most energy savings and enhanced fabric care from the dryer. During Automatic
drying air temperature
and moisture level are sensed in the load. This sensing occurs throughout
the drying cycle and the dryer
shuts off when the load reaches the selected dryness. Use the NORMAL dryness level to provide optimal energy savings.
With Timed Dry, the dryer runs the amount of time set and sometimes results in shrinkage, wrinkling, and static due to
ver-drying. Use Timed Dry for the occasional damp load that needs a little more drying time or when using the drying rack.
for getting
the best performance
from your steam
[] Results may vary depending on fabric. 100% cotton
garments with wrinkle-free
finish may yield better results
than those without. 100% cotton items may require
additional touching up after cycles that use steam.
Use of fabric softener sheet is not recommended
cycles that use steam. It may cause temporary staining
on clothes.
[] Cycles that use steam are not recommended
for items that
have been starched. Wash any starched or new garments
prior to using a cycle that uses steam.
[] The Steam Refresh Cycle is best for smoothing out wrinkles
and reducing odors from loads consisting of dry items of
cotton, cotton-polyester
blend, common knits,
and synthetics.
