Important Safety Instructions, continued
To reduce the risk of fi re, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using this dryer, comply with the basic
warnings listed below. Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow these Important Safety Instructions:
PREVENT FIRE
Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned in, soaked
in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents, kerosene,
waxes, etc. Do not store these items on or near the dryer.
These substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
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 load to catch fi re.
Do not dry articles containing rubber, plastic or similar
materials such as bras, galoshes, bath mats, rugs, bibs,
baby pants, plastic bags and pillows that may melt or burn.
Some rubber materials, when heated, can under certain
circumstances produce fi re by spontaneous combustion.
Clean the lint screen before or after each load. The interior
of the dryer, lint screen housing and exhaust duct should be
cleaned approximately every 18 months by qualifi ed service
personnel. An excessive amount of lint build-up in these
areas could result in ineffi cient drying and possible fi re. See
Care and Cleaning.
Do not operate the dryer if the lint screen is blocked, dam-
aged or missing. Fire hazard, overheating and damage to
fabrics can occur.
- FIRE HAZARD - A clothes dryer produces
combustible lint. The dryer must be connected to an outdoors
exhaust. Regularly inspect the outdoor exhaust opening and
remove any accumulation of lint around the opening and in
the surrounding area.
Do not obstruct the fl ow of ventilating air. Do not stack or place
laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer.
Do not spray any type of aerosol into, on or near dryer at
any time.
Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static
unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric
softener or product.
Do not continue to use the dryer is you hear squeaking,
grinding, rubbing or other unusual noises. This could be a
sign of mechanical breakdown and lead to fi re or serious
injury. Contact a qualifi ed technician immediately.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in fi re,
explosion, serious bodily injury and/or damage to the rub-
ber or plastic parts of the dryer.
PROTECT CHILDREN
Do not allow children to play on or in the dryer. Close
supervision of children is necessary when the dryer is used
near children. As children grow, teach them the proper,
safe use of all appliances.
Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing materi-
als after the dryer is unpacked. Children might use them
for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads or plastic
sheets can become airtight chambers.
Keep laundry products out of children's reach. To prevent
personal injury, observe all warnings on product labels.
Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded, re-
move the dryer door to prevent accidental entrapment.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in seri-
ous personal injuries.
PREVENT INJURY
To prevent shock hazard and assure stability during opera-
tion, the dryer must be installed and electrically grounded
by a qualifi ed service person in accordance with local
codes. Installation instructions are packed in the dryer for
the installer's reference. Refer to INSTALLATION INSTRUC-
TIONS for detailed grounding procedures. If the dryer is
moved to a new location, have it checked and reinstalled
by a qualifi ed service person.
To prevent personal injury or damage to the dryer, the
electrical power cord of a gas dryer must be plugged into a
properly grounded and polarized 3-prong outlet. The third
grounding prong must never be removed. Never ground
the dryer to a gas pipe. Do not use an extension cord or an
adaptor plug.
ALWAYS disconnect the dryer from the electrical supply
before attempting any service or cleaning. Failure to do so
can result in electrical shock or injury.
Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning dryer
interior. Hazardous fumes or electrical shock could occur.
To prevent injury, do not reach into the dryer if the drum is
moving. Wait until the dryer has stopped completely before
reaching into the drum.
PREVENT INJURY AND DAMAGE TO THE DRYER
All repairs and servicing must be performed by an au-
thorized servicer unless specifi cally recommended in this
Owner's Guide. Use only authorized factory parts.
Do not tamper with controls.
Do not install or store the dryer where it will be exposed to
the weather.
A thermal limiter switch automatically turns off the motor
in the unlikely event of an overheated situation (electric
dryers only). A service technician must replace the thermal
limiter switch after correcting the fault.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in seri-
ous personal injuries.
