Cool Down tumbles the load without heat during the last few
minutes of all cycles. Cool Down makes the loads easier to
handle and reduces wrinkling. The length of the Cool Down
depends on the load size and dryness level.
Drying tips
Follow care label directions when they are available.
If desired, add a fabric softener sheet. Follow package
To reduce wrinkling, remove the load from the dryer as soon
as tumbling stops. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits and synthetic fabrics.
Avoid drying heavy work clothes together with lighter fabrics.
This could cause overdrying of lighter fabrics and lead to
increased shrinkage or wrinkling.
Cycle tips
Dry most loads using the preset cycle settings.
Refer to the Auto or Timed Preset Cycle Settings charts (in
