Cycle Selection

For best results, follow the fabric care label
instructions on items to be dried.
Auto Dry
Auto Dry cycles take the guesswork out of drying
time. The load will automatically be dried at the
selected temperature to the desired dryness level.
The dryer senses the moisture level of the load as
it tumbles through heated air. Auto Dry cycles save
time and energy and protect fabrics.
When the load has reached the selected dryness
level, it will continue to tumble, unheated, during a
Cool Down period. This helps reduce wrinkling and
makes items easier to handle during unloading.
Drying time varies depending on size and dampness
of load, weight and fabric type. Room temperature
and humidity, type of installation and electrical
voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying time.
Select this Auto Dry cycle for towel loads.
Select this Auto Dry cycle for cotton items.
Perm Press
Select this Auto Dry cycle to dry cottons and blends
with a no-iron finish.
