• Check to see if outside wall damper operates easily.
• Separate heavy items from lightweight items (generally,
a well-sorted washer load is a well-sorted dryer load).

longer to dry. Separate large, heavy fabrics into smaller

dryer is paused. Press START to restart the countdown.
• This is normal. When the dryer senses a low level of
moisture in the load, the dryer will display the dry time
