Drying and Cycle Tips
Select the correct cycle and dryness level or temperature for your
load. If an Auto Cycle is running, the display shows the estimated
cycle time, which is determined by your dryer automatically
sensing the dryness level of your load. If a Timed Cycle is
running, the display shows the exact number of minutes
remaining in the cycle.
Cool Down tumbles the load without heat during the last few
minutes of all cycles. Cool Down makes the loads easier to
handle and reduces wrinkling. The length of the Cool Down
depends on the load size and dryness level.
Follow care label directions when they are available.
If desired, add a fabric softener sheet. Follow package
To reduce wrinkling, remove the load from the dryer as soon
as tumbling stops. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits, and synthetic fabrics.
Avoid drying heavy work clothes together with lighter fabrics.
This could cause overdrying of lighter fabrics and lead to
increased shrinkage or wrinkling.
Dry most loads using the preset cycle settings.
Refer to the Auto Cycles or Timed Cycles Preset Settings
chart (in the "Cycles" section) for a guide to drying various
Drying temperature and Dryness Level are preset when
you choose an Auto Cycle. You can select a different
dryness level, depending on your load, by pressing
Dryness Level and choosing More or Less.
NOTE: You cannot use the Timed Cycle Adjust and you
cannot modify temperature with the Auto Dry cycles.
If you wish to adjust the cycle length of a Timed Cycle,
press More Time or Less Time. Adjust the temperature of
a Timed Cycle by pressing TEMPERATURE until the
desired temperature is selected.
NOTE: You cannot use the Dryness Level with Timed
Follow the progress of your dryer with the drying Status indicator
The Wet light illuminates at the beginning of an Auto Cycle if a
wet item is detected.
In an Auto Cycle, if a wet item is not detected after
approximately 5 minutes, the dryer goes directly into Cool
Down and the Cool Down and WRINKLE GUARD
illuminate, if selected.
In a Timed Cycle, wet items are not detected. The dryer will
continue to run for the length of time selected, and the Wet
light will illuminate. The damp light will not illuminate.
The Damp light illuminates in an Auto Cycle when the laundry is
approximately 80% dry.
The Cool Down light illuminates during the cool down part of the
cycle. Laundry cools for ease in handling.
The Clothes Dry light illuminates when the drying cycle is
finished. This indicator stays on during WRINKLE GUARD
The WRINKLE GUARD
light illuminates when this option is
selected. This indicator stays on with Clothes Dry.
Check Lint Screen
The Check Lint Screen light is a reminder to check to see
whether the lint screen needs to be cleaned. The Check Lint
Screen light will come on when the machine is turned on. The
light will flash until the cycle is started or the door is opened.
