DRYER SAFETY
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using the dryer, follow basic precautions,
including the following:
Read all instructions before using the dryer.
This dryer is intended only for drying clothes and textiles
that have been washed in water. Do not use for any
other purpose.
WARNING: If you smell gas, do not use the dryer or any
electrical equipment nearby. Warn other people to clear
the area. Contact the dryer owner immediately.
Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer.
Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to
a chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.
Do not dry articles that have been previously cleaned
in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline,
dry-cleaning solvents, other flammable, or explosive
substances as they give off vapors that could ignite
or explode.
Do not dry unwashed items in the dryer.
Do not allow children to play on or in the dryer. Close
supervision of children is necessary when the dryer is
used near children.
Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded,
remove the doors to the dryer compartment.
Do not reach into the dryer if the drum is moving.
Do not open door while dryer is in operation. It will stop.
Do not install or store the dryer where it will be exposed
to the weather.
Do not tamper with controls.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Clean dryer lint screen before or after each load.
Do not use this dryer without the lint screen in place.
Do not repair or replace any part of the dryer or attempt
any servicing unless specifically recommended in this
Installation Instructions or in published user-repair
instructions that you understand and have the skills
to carry out.
Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static
unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric
softener or product.
Do not use heat to dry articles containing foam rubber or
similarly textured rubber-like materials.
The final part of a tumble dryer cycle occurs without heat
(cool-down cycle) to ensure that the articles are left at
a temperature that ensures that the items will not be
damaged.
WARNING: Never stop a tumble dryer before the end of
the drying cycle unless all items are quickly removed and
spread out so that the heat is dissipated. (Avoids risk of
spontaneous combustion).
Keep area around the exhaust opening and adjacent
surrounding areas free from the accumulation of lint,
dust, and dirt.
The interior of the dryer and dryer exhaust vent should
be cleaned periodically by qualified service personnel.
See "Electrical Requirements" section for grounding
instructions.
