NON-USE, STORAGE, AND MOVING CARE
Install and store your dryer where it will not freeze. Because
some water may stay in the hose, freezing can damage
your dryer. If storing or moving your dryer during freezing
weather, winterize it.
Non-Use or Storage Care
Operate your dryer only when you are at home. If you will
be on vacation or not using your dryer for an extended
period of time, you should:
1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
2. Clean lint screen. See "Cleaning the Lint Screen."
3. Turn off the water supply to the dryer. This helps to
avoid unintended flooding (due to a water pressure
surge) while you are away.

1. Unplug the power supply cord.
