without tumbling. The drum turns, but the rack does not move.

purchase one. To find out whether your model allows dryer rack
usage and to obtain ordering information, please refer to the back
page of this manual or contact the dealer from whom you
purchased your dryer.
NOTE: You must remove dryer rack for normal tumbling. Do not
use automatic cycles with the dryer rack.
