Cycle Status Indicators

Appearance may vary.
The Cycle Status Indicators show the progress of a cycle.
Not all indicators are available on all models.
Check Vent
This indicator will show the status of airflow through the
dryer and dryer vent system for the dryer's life. During the
sensing phase at the beginning of the cycle, the Check Vent
light will come on if a blocked vent or low airflow issue is
detected. This light will stay on for the entire cycle. The
light will be cleared when selecting a new cycle, touching
POWER, or opening the door after the cycle has completed.
This feature is available during Automatic and Steam cycles
only. For more information on maintaining good airflow, see
"Check Your Vent System for Good Airflow."
NOTE: If there are other error issues during a cycle, the
Check Vent indicator will not light up. See "Troubleshooting"
Eco Monitor
The Eco Monitor allows you to see how the settings you
select affect your energy usage within the cycle chosen.
The Eco Monitor indicator may change, depending on the
options and modifiers selected.
The load is still wet and/or the cycle just started.
This indicator shows that the load is partially dried and items
that you may wish to hang up or iron while still damp may
be removed.
Cool Down
The dryer has finished drying with heat, and is now tumbling
the load without heat to cool it down and reduce wrinkling.
This will indicate that the selected cycle has ended and
the load may be removed from the dryer. If Wrinkle Shield
option has been selected, the dryer may continue to tumble
the load, even if the Done indicator is lit.
The Sensing indicator will light during Automatic Cycles to
indicate that the moisture sensor on the dryer is operating.
This indicator will not light during Manual Cycles or options
such as Wrinkle Shield.
Static Reduce
This indicator will light when the Static Reduce function
is active.
NOTE: Static Reduce is not available on all cycles.
This indicator will light when the Steam function is active.
NOTE: Steam is not available on all cycles.
Wrinkle Shield
This indicator will light if the Wrinkle Shield
selected and is running. The dryer will periodically tumble
the load for up to 140 minutes after the cycle has ended.
