Energy Saving Tips

Keep the lint screen clean and exhaust the dryer correctly.
Sort laundry properly and select proper temperature and
cycle settings. Choose an automatic dry cycle whenever
possible for accurate drying time.
Dry only full loads. Single items and small loads usually take
longer to dry.
Avoid overloading, adding wet items to a partially dry load,
and overdrying.
Dry one load after another to take advantage of a warm dryer.
Opening the door needlessly causes warm air to escape,
which prolongs drying time.
If possible, use the dryer on low humidity days.
Install the dryer in an area where the room temperature is
at least 45°F (7°C).

Care and Cleaning

- 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.
Clean the lint fi lter after every load.
Do not store or place laundry products on top
of dryer at any time. They can damage the fi nish or controls.


A signal will sound at the end of the cycle and periodically
during Wrinkle Free/Press Saver (some models) if selected.
DRUM LIGHT (some models)
The drum light will come on whenever the door is opened to
illuminate the drum during loading and unloading. Closing
the door turns off the light.
Your dryer is equipped with a reversible door. The door can
be hinged on the right or left side.
For step-by-step instructions on DOOR REVERSAL, re-
fer to the Installation Instructions supplied with this dryer.
To reduce risk of fi re or serious injury to per-
sons or property, comply with the basic warnings listed in the
Important Safety Instructions and those listed below.
Before cleaning the dryer interior, unplug the electrical
power cord to avoid electrical shock hazards.
Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning the dryer
interior. Hazardous fumes or electrical shock could occur.
Clean the lint fi lter after every load. Lint build-up on the
fi lter restricts air fl ow, which causes longer drying times.
The fi lter is located at the bottom of the door open-
ing. Remove by pulling straight up. Remove the lint and
replace the fi lter.
Occasionally a waxy build-up may form on the lint fi lter
and/or moisture sensing bars from using dryer-added fabric
softener sheets. To remove this build-up, wash them with
warm, soapy water. Dry the fi lter thoroughly and replace.
Do not operate the dryer without the lint fi lter in place.
If the dryer drum becomes stained from noncolorfast
fabrics, clean the drum with a damp cloth and a mild liquid
household cleanser. Remove cleanser residue before drying
the next load.
Every 18 months an authorized servicer should clean the dry-
er cabinet interior and exhaust duct. These areas can collect
lint and dust over time. An excessive amount of lint build-up
could result in ineffi cient drying and possible fi re hazard.
Clean the cabinet with mild soap and water. Never use
harsh, gritty or abrasive cleansers.
If the cabinet becomes stained, clean with diluted chlorine
bleach (1 part bleach to 8 parts water). Rinse several times
with clear water.
Remove glue residue from tape or labels with a mixture of
warm water and mild detergent. Or, touch residue with
the sticky side of the tape or label.
When cleaning chrome parts use a window cleaner with
ammonia or mild soap and water.
Before moving the dryer, place a strip of cardboard or thin
fi berboard under the front leveling legs to prevent damage
to the fl oor.
