Starting Your Dryer

Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from dryer.
Do not dry anything that has ever had anything
flammable on it (even after washing).
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death, explosion, or fire.
Fire Hazard
No washer can completely remove oil.
Do not dry anything that has ever had any type of
oil on it (including cooking oils).
Items containing foam, rubber, or plastic must be
dried on a clothesline or by using an Air Cycle.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death or fire.
Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for
the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred
Automatic Setting (
) in the SENSOR DRY cycle to dry most
heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle
and Temperature Tips."
3. Set the TEMPERATURE selector to the recommended setting
for the type of fabric being dried. See "Cycle Descriptions"
for suggested temperature settings.
4. (OPTIONAL) Your dryer may have an EXTRA CARE selector.
When you are unable to remove a load from the dryer as soon
as it stops, wrinkles can form. The EXTRA CARE feature
periodically tumbles, rearranges and fluffs the load without
heat to avoid wrinkling.
Set the EXTRA CARE selector to ON to tumble the load
without heat every few minutes up to 45 minutes after the
drying cycle ends. A signal will sound every few minutes
while EXTRA CARE is running, if the END OF CYCLE
Set the EXTRA CARE selector to OFF if you do not want
to run this feature.
On some models, the EXTRA CARE feature is automatic
and activates at the end of the SENSOR DRY cycle, if you
do not open the dryer door within a few minutes after the
cycle ends.
5. (OPTIONAL) Set the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL selector to ON,
or to the volume level you prefer (on some models), if you
want the dryer to sound a signal when a cycle is finished. The
signal is helpful when you are drying permanent press,
synthetics, and other items that should be removed from the
dryer as soon as it stops.
6. Push the START button.
