FABRIC CARE/TEMPERATURE CONTROL
The following table lists suggested auto dry or timed dry settings for various loads. This is only a guide.
FABRIC CARE/ TEMPERATURE
* Reset time as needed to allow items to dry completely.
** Reset dryness level to More or Less Dry as needed for type of fabric or load size.
CYCLE SELECTOR (TIMER) CONTROL
During the Auto Dry Cycle, the exhaust air temperature of the
dryer determines the drying time and dryness levels. A thermostat
signals the Cycle Control Knob when to move into Cool Down.
The drying time for an Auto Dry Cycle depends on load type and
load size. When drying a large or heavy load, the Cycle Control
Knob may take a long time before it begins to advance into Cool
Down. The Auto Dry Cycle takes the guesswork out of drying time
and enhances fabric care. The amount of time that is displayed is
the estimated time remaining in the cycle.
The Automatic Cycle may be used for most loads. This cycle gives
the best drying in the shortest time. Drying time varies according
to the type of fabric, size of the load, and dryness setting.
Dryness is determined by the exhaust temperature of the dryer.
When the dryness selected is reached, the dryer goes into a
5 minute (approximately) cool down period.
The Cycle Selector (Timer) Control may be set to NORMAL
DRY (*), which is good for most fabrics. At the end of the cycle,
you may check the dryness of the load.
If the load is drier than you like, you may select a setting closer to
Less Dry the next time you dry a similar load.
If a load is not as dry as you like, you may complete drying using
a Timed cycle. You may select a setting closer to More Dry the
next time you dry a similar load.
