Important Safety Instructions before operating this dryer.
1. Prepare items for drying.
Dry items of similar fabric, weight and construction in the same load.
Separate dark items from light-colored items. Separate items that shed lint
from those that attract lint. If an item sheds lint, turn it inside out.
Be sure buckles, buttons and trim are heatproof and won't damage the drum
finish. Close zippers, fasten hooks and Velcro®-like fasteners. Tie strings and
sashes to prevent snagging and tangling.
If possible, turn pockets inside out for even drying.
Check for stains which may not have been removed in washing. Dryer heat
may permanently set some stains. Repeat stain removal process before drying.
Place small items in a mesh bag to prevent tangling and for easy removal.
2. Check that lint screen is clean and in place.
3. Load the dryer.
The average load will fill the drum 1/3 to 1/2 full. Items need room to tumble
freely for even drying and less wrinkling. Do not overload dryer.
When drying large items, dry only 2 or 3 at a time. Fill out the load with small
and medium sized items.
For delicate or very small loads, add 2 lint-free towels for better drying, less
wrinkling, and to prevent grease stains caused by fabric softener sheets.
Do not overdry items. Overdrying can cause wrinkling, shrinkage, harshness,
and a build-up of static electricity, which can produce more lint.
If desired, add a dryer fabric softener sheet.

options and features desired.
