Check Your Vent System for Good Airflow

Good airflow
Along with heat, dryers require good airflow to efficiently dry
laundry. Proper venting will reduce your drying times and
improve your energy savings. See Installation Instructions.
The venting system attached to the dryer plays a big role
in good airflow.
Service calls caused by improper venting are not covered
by the warranty and will be paid by the customer, regardless
of who installed the dryer.
Use Automatic Cycles for better fabric care and energy savings
Use the Automatic Cycles to provide the most energy savings and enhanced fabric care from the dryer. During Automatic Cycles,
drying air temperature and moisture level are sensed in the load. This sensing occurs throughout the drying cycle and the dryer
shuts off when the load reaches the selected dryness. Use the NORMAL dryness level to provide optimal energy savings.
With Timed Dry, the dryer runs the amount of time set and sometimes results in shrinkage, wrinkling, and static due to
over-drying. Use Timed Dry for the occasional damp load that needs a little more drying time or when using the drying rack.

Tips for getting the best performance from your steam dryer

Results may vary depending on fabric. 100% cotton
n
garments with wrinkle-free finish may yield better results
than those without. 100% cotton items may require
additional touching up after cycles that use steam.
Use of fabric softener sheet is not recommended with
n
cycles that use steam. It may cause temporary staining
on clothes.
Maintain good airflow by:
Cleaning your lint screen before each load.
n
Replace plastic or foil vent material
n
with 4" (102 mm) diameter heavy, rigid
vent material.
Use the shortest length of vent possible.
n
Use no more than four 90° elbows in a vent system;
n
each bend and curve reduces airflow.
Good
Remove lint and debris from the exhaust hood.
n
Remove lint from the entire length of the vent system
n
at least every 2 years. When cleaning is complete, be
sure to follow the Installation Instructions supplied with
your dryer for final product check.
Clear away items from the front of the dryer.
n
(on some models)
Cycles that use steam are not recommended for items that
n
have been starched. Wash any starched or new garments
prior to using a cycle that uses steam.
The Steam Refresh Cycle is best for smoothing out wrinkles
n
and reducing odors from loads consisting of dry items of
wrinkle-free cotton, cotton-polyester blend, common knits,
and synthetics.
