Use the drying rack to dry items which should not be tumble dried.
1. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen.
2. Insert drying rack into the dryer drum. Place the front bar under the lip of the
lint screen opening.
3. Place items to be dried on top of the rack. Weight should not exceed 10 lbs.
Leave space between items, but do not let items hang over the sides or through
the grids. Do not tumble other items when using the drying rack.
4. Select a timed dry setting best suited for items being dried. Use only the Air Fluff
(no heat) temperature setting for items containing plastic, foam rubber,
rubber-like materials, feathers or down.
5. When items are dry, remove the rack and replace the lint screen. If lint screen
is not in place, tumbling items could enter the exhaust system and cause
damage to the dryer.
