Cycle Signal Control
When the Cycle Signal Control is ON, a signal will sound at the end of each cycle and
during the Press Saver setting (some models). The volume is adjustable on some
models.
Drum Light
(some models)
A drum light will come on whenever the door is opened to illuminate the dryer drum
during loading and unloading. Closing the door turns off the light.
Drying Rack
(some models)
Use the drying rack to dry items which should not be tumble dried.
1. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen.
2. Insert drying rack into the dryer drum. Place the front bar under the lip of the lint
screen opening.
3. Place items to be dried on top of rack. Weight should not exceed 10 lbs. Leave
space between items, but do not let items hang over the sides or through the
grids. Do not tumble other items when using the drying rack.
4. Select a timed dry setting best suited for items being dried. Use only the Air Fluff
(no heat) temperature setting for items containing plastic, foam rubber, rubber-
like materials, feathers or down.
5. When items are dry, remove the rack and replace the lint screen. If lint screen
is not in place, tumbling items could enter the exhaust system and cause damage
to the dryer.
