the selected temperature to the desired dryness level.
The dryer uses sensing bars to sense the moisture level
of the load as it tumbles through heated air. Auto Dry
cycles save time and energy and protect fabrics.
The estimated drying time will be displayed for about 5
minutes. Then the display will change to "Ad" to indicate
drying time is automatically being determined by the
sensors. 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. The
estimated Cool Down time will be displayed.
Drying time varies depending on size and dampness of
load and fabric type. If the load is too small or almost
dry, the sensing bars may not detect enough moisture
to continue the cycle and the cycle may end after a few
minutes. Select a Timed Dry setting to dry such loads.
Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and
electrical voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying
