IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING
WARNING!
YOUR LAUNDRY AREA
Keep the area underneath and around your
appliances free of combustible materials (lint,
paper, rags, etc), gasoline, chemicals, and other
flammable vapors and liquids.
Keep the floor around your appliances clean and
dry to reduce the possibility of slipping.
Close supervision is necessary if this appliance is
used near children. Do not allow children to play
on, with or inside this or any other appliance.
WHEN USING YOUR DRYER
Never reach into the dryer while the drum is
moving. Before loading, unloading or adding
clothes, wait until the drum has completely
stopped.
Clean the lint filter before each load to prevent
lint accumulation inside the dryer or in the room.
DO NOT OPERATE THE DRYER WITHOUT THE LINT
FILTER IN PLACE.
Do not wash or dry articles that have been
cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with
combustible or explosive substances (such as
wax, oil, paint, gasoline, degreasers, dry-cleaning
solvents, kerosene, etc.) which may ignite or
explode. Do not add these substances to the
wash water. Do not use or place these substances
around your washer or dryer during operation.
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 clothes load to catch fire.
Any article on which you have used a cleaning
solvent or that contains flammable materials (such
as cleaning cloths, mops, towels used in beauty
salons, restaurants or barber shops, etc.) must not
be placed in or near the dryer. There are many
highly flammable items used in homes such as
acetone, denatured alcohol, gasoline, kerosene,
some household cleaners, some spot removers,
turpentines, waxes, wax removers and products
containing petroleum distillates.
4
Keep all laundry aids (such as detergents,
bleaches, etc.) out of the reach of children,
preferably in a locked cabinet. Observe all
warnings on container labels to avoid injury.
Never climb on or stand on the dryer top.
The laundry process can reduce the flame
retardancy of fabrics. To avoid such a result,
carefully follow the garment manufacturer's care
instructions.
Do not dry articles containing rubber, plastic,
foam or similar materials such as padded bras,
tennis shoes, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs, baby
pants, plastic bags, pillows, etc., that may melt
or burn. Some rubber materials, when heated,
can under certain circumstances produce fire by
spontaneous combustion.
Do not store plastic, paper or clothing that may
burn or melt on top of the dryer during operation.
Garments labeled Dry Away from Heat or Do not
Tumble Dry (such as life jackets containing kapok)
must not be put in your dryer.
Do not dry fiberglass articles in your dryer. Skin
irritation could result from the remaining particles
that may be picked up by clothing during
subsequent dryer uses.
To minimize the possibility of electric shock,
unplug this appliance from the power supply or
disconnect the dryer at the building's distribution
panel by removing the fuse or switching off
the circuit breaker before attempting any
maintenance or cleaning (except the removal
and cleaning of the lint filter). NOTE: Pressing
START, PAUSE or POWER does NOT disconnect the
appliance from the power supply.
