How Auto Dry works
SmartHeat™ improves drying performance with Auto Moisture
Sensing Plus, which advances the cycle as moisture is extracted
from clothing. A thermistor (electronic temperature sensor) and
moisture sensing strips in the dryer drum help measure the
amount of moisture in the clothes as they tumble. An electronic
control determines the load type to help save time, avoid
overdrying, and increase the accuracy of the end dryness level.
After the first 5 minutes of an automatic cycle, the estimated time
display will adjust based on the approximate load size, cycle,
dryness level selected and amount of moisture left in the clothes.
When the clothes have reached approximately 80% of the
dryness level selected, the estimated time display will adjust
again, showing the final drying time. Auto Moisture Sensing Plus
takes the guesswork out of drying time and enhances fabric care.
To use a Timed Cycle
NOTE: A light next to each feature will glow green when the
feature is selected or will glow amber when the feature is
selectable. The light will not glow when the selection is
unavailable with the cycle or option combinations selected.
Press a Timed Cycles button or, to select Air Fluff, rotate
the control knob to the desired cycle.
Press MORE TIME or LESS TIME until the desired drying
time is displayed. Tap MORE TIME or LESS TIME, and the
time will change by 1-minute intervals. Press and hold
MORE TIME or LESS TIME, and the time will change by
5-minute intervals.
NOTE: The More Time and Less Time buttons can be
used only with Timed Cycles.
Press TEMPERATURE until the desired temperature
NOTE: During a Timed Cycle, you can change the settings for
Time, Temperature, WRINKLE GUARD
Signal. Press STOP twice to stop the dryer and clear the
settings. Select another cycle or option.
4. (OPTIONAL STEP) If desired, select OPTIONS. For more
details, see "Options."
5. (OPTIONAL STEP) If desired, set the End of Cycle Signal.
Select LOUD or SOFT by pressing the Cycle Signal button to
alert you when a cycle ends.
6. Press and hold START for approximately 3 seconds until
dryer starts. Be sure the door is closed.
If you do not press Start within 5 minutes of selecting the
cycle, the dryer automatically shuts off.
If you wish to end your drying cycle after pressing Start,
press Stop twice.

Stopping Your Dryer

To stop your dryer at any time
Press STOP twice or open the door.
To pause the dryer at any time
Open the door or press STOP once.
To restart the dryer
Close the door. Press and hold START until dryer starts.
NOTE: Drying will continue from where the cycle was interrupted
if you close the door and press START within 5 minutes. If the
cycle is interrupted for more than 5 minutes, the dryer will shut
off. Select new cycle settings before restarting the dryer.
This feature allows you to lock your settings to avoid unintended
use of the dryer. You can also use the Control Locked feature to
avoid unintended cycle or option changes during dryer operation.
To enable the Control Locked feature:
Press and hold CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds. The Control
Locked indicator light glows, and a single beep tone is heard. To
unlock, press and hold CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds. The
indicator light turns off.
Select the correct cycle and dryness level or temperature for your
load. If an Auto Cycle is running, the display shows the estimated
cycle time, which is determined by your dryer automatically
sensing the dryness level of your load. If a Timed Cycle is
running, the display shows the exact number of minutes
remaining in the cycle.
Cool Down tumbles the load without heat during the last few
minutes of all cycles. Cool Down makes the loads easier to
handle and reduces wrinkling. The length of the Cool Down
depends on the load size and dryness level.

Drying and Cycle Tips

Follow care label directions when they are available.
If desired, add a fabric softener sheet. Follow package
To reduce wrinkling, remove the load from the dryer as soon
as tumbling stops. This is especially important for permanent
press, knits and synthetic fabrics.
Avoid drying heavy work clothes together with lighter fabrics.
This could cause overdrying of lighter fabrics and lead to
increased shrinkage or wrinkling.
Dry most loads using the preset cycle settings.
Refer to the Auto Cycles or Timed Cycles Preset Settings
chart (in the "Cycles" section) for a guide to drying various
Drying temperature and Dryness Level are preset when
you choose an Auto Cycle. You can select a different
dryness level, depending on your load, by pressing
Dryness Level and choosing More Dry, Normal or Less
NOTE: You cannot use the Timed Cycle Adjust and you
cannot modify temperature with the Auto Cycles.
If you wish to adjust the cycle length of a Timed Cycle,
press More Time or Less Time. Adjust the temperature of
a Timed Cycle by pressing TEMPERATURE until the
desired temperature is selected.
NOTE: You cannot use the Dryness Level with Timed
