Clothes are not drying satisfactorily, drying times are too
long, or load is too hot
Is the lint screen clogged with lint?
Lint screen should be cleaned before each load.
Fire Hazard
Use a heavy metal vent.
Do not use a plastic vent.
Do not use a metal foil vent.
Failure to follow
these instructions can result in death
or fire.
Is the exhaust vent or outside exhaust hood clogged with
lint, restricting air movement?
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 the
Installation Instructions.
Are fabric softener sheets blocking the grille?
Use only one fabric softener sheet, and use it only once.
Is the exhaust vent the correct
length?
Check that the exhaust vent is not too long or has too many
turns. Long venting will increase drying times. See the
Installation Instructions.
Is the exhaust vent diameter the correct size?
Use 4" (10.2 cm) diameter vent material.
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable
materials
and vapors, such as
gasoline,
away from dryer.
Place dryer at least 18 inches (46 crn) above the floor
for a garage installation.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion,
or fire.
Is the dryer located in a room with temperature
below
45°F (7°C)?
Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above
45°F (7°C).
Is the dryer located in a closet?
Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top and
bottom of the door. The rear of the dryer requires 5" (12.7 cm)
of airspace, and the sides and front of the dryer require a
minimum of 1" (2.5 cm). See the Installation Instructions.
Has the Air Only modifier been selected?
Select the right temperature for the types of garments being
dried. See "Modifiers."
Is the load too large and heavy to dry quickly?
Separate the load to tumble freely.
Cycle time too short
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install dryer.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Is the automatic cycle ending early?
The load may not be contacting
the sensor strips. Level the
dryer.
Change the dryness level setting on Automatic
Cycles.
Increasing or decreasing the dryness level will change the
amount of drying time in a cycle.
Lint on load
Is the lint screen clogged?
Clean lint screen. Check for air movement.
Stains on load or drum
Was dryer fabric softener properly used?
Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle.
Fabric softener sheets added to a partially dried load can
stain your garments.
Drum stains are caused by dyes in clothing (usually blue
jeans). This will not transfer to other clothing.
Loads are wrinkled
Was the load removed from dryer at the end of the cycle?
Was the dryer overloaded?
Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely.
Odors
Have you recently been painting, staining or varnishing in
the area where your dryer is located?
If so, ventilate the area. When the odors or fumes are gone
from the area, rewash and dry the clothing.
