SECTION 1
Using Your New Dryer
BASIC RULES
SORTING
For best results, clothes should be
sorted into loads that can be dried
together.
Here is how you sort
clothes by color, fabric and construc-
tion, and linting.
COLOR
Non-colorfast colors (those that run
or bleed) can stain other items during
tumble drying. Always dry non-
colorfast items separately.
FABRIC and CONSTRUCTION
Drying mixed weight fabrics will result
in uneven
drying,
since
light-
weight
fabrics
dry much
faster
than
heavy
fabrics.
Overdrying
modern
fabrics
can result
in
wrinkling,
harshne_-
static
electricity
build-up,
and
pos-
sible shrinkage.
For best
re-
sults, always wash
and dry
fabrics
of similar
weight
to-
gether.

PRECARE
Check all pockets to be sure that all
staining materials (pens, crayons, etc.)
have been removed.
Some dye-type
stains are set with dryer heat and
cannot be removed.
LOAD SIZE
The space that fabrics take up (bulk)
is more important than their weight.
For example, 6 pounds of nylons or
permanent
press items may take up
twice the space of 6 pounds of
cottons.
For best results, follow these
suggestions.
• Allow enough room for items to
tumble freely. Clothes will dry
faster and be less wrinkled in an
uncrowded dryer. Especially
important
for permanent
press,
knits,
and
other
no-iron
fabrics.
• Dry only 1-or 2 large bulky items at
a time, for example, bedspreads,
rugs, or blankets.
• Dry very small light loads with 2 dry
bath towels for better tumbling.
• Turn pockets of heavy garments -
or the garment itself - inside out for
faster, more even drying.
• Put small items such as baby socks
in a pillow case or mesh bag to
prevent scattering.
Tie or pin the
bail closed.
