Is the dryer located in a closet?
Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top and
bottom of the door. The rear of the dryer requires 5" (12.7 cm)
of airspace, and 1" (2.5 cm) is recommended for the sides
and front of the dryer. See the Installation Instructions.
Has an air dry cycle been selected?
Select the right cycle for the types of garments being dried.
Is the load too large and heavy to dry quickly?
Separate the load to tumble freely.
Cycle time too short
Is the automatic cycle ending early?
Change the dryness level setting on Automatic Cycles.
Increasing or decreasing the dryness level will change the
amount of drying time in a cycle.
Lint on load
Is the lint screen clogged?
Lint screen should be cleaned before each load.

Stains on load or drum
Was dryer fabric softener properly used?
Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle.
Fabric softener sheets added to a partially dried load can
stain your garments.
Drum stains are caused by dyes in clothing (usually blue
jeans). This will not transfer to other clothing.
Loads are wrinkled
Was the load removed from dryer at the end of the cycle?
Was the dryer overloaded?
Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely.
Have you recently been painting, staining or varnishing in
the area where your dryer is located?
If so, ventilate the area. When the odors or fumes are gone
from the area, rewash and dry the clothing.
Is the electric dryer being used for the first time?
The new electric heating element may have an odor. The odor
will be gone after the first cycle.
