other purpose.
WARNING: If you smell gas, do not use the dryer or any
electrical equipment nearby. Warn other people to clear
the area. Contact the dryer owner immediately.
Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer.
Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to
a chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or
cooking oil or that have been contaminated by hair care
products be placed in a tumble dryer, they should first
be washed in hot water with extra detergent – this will
reduce, but not eliminate the hazard.
Do not dry articles that have been previously cleaned
in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with petrol,
dry-cleaning solvents, other flammable, or explosive
substances as they give off vapors that could ignite
or explode.
Items that have been soiled with substances such
as acetone, alcohol, petrol, kerosene, spot removers,
turpentine, waxes, and wax removers should be washed
in hot water with extra detergent before being dried
in the dryer.
