Timed Dry Cycle

Use this cycle to complete drying if items are still damp after the
automatic cycle.
Timed Dry is also useful for:
Heavyweight and bulky items, such as bedspreads and work
clothes and large loads that require a long drying time. Set
the Temperature selector to a heat setting that matches the
care label directions.
Lightweight items, such as lingerie, blouses, and knits that
require a short drying time. Set the Temperature selector at
Low, Extra or Ultra-Low heat.
Heavy Dry
Use this setting to thoroughly dry large or heavy items, such as
thick bath towels or robes. Set the Temperature selector at High
Quick Press
Use this setting to remove wrinkles from items, such as clothes
packed in a suitcase or items wrinkled from being left in the dryer
too long. Set the Temperature selector at Low or Medium heat,
depending on the fabrics in your load.
Rack Dry
Use this setting with the drying rack to dry items without tumbling
them. See "Drying Rack."
Air T umble Cycle
Use this cycle for items that require drying without heat, such as
rubber, plastic and sheer fabrics. Since this cycle has no heat, the
Temperature selector setting will have no effect.

When using an air cycle
Check to see that coverings are securely stitched.
Shake and fluff pillows by hand periodically during cycle.
Dry item completely. Foam rubber pillows are slow to dry.
The drying rack is useful for machine drying items you would not
necessarily want to tumble dry or that you would normally line dry
(for example, tennis shoes, pillows, stuffed toys).
If your model does not have a drying rack, you can order one by
calling 1-800-442-9991 or by contacting the dealer from whom
you purchased your dryer.
To use the drying rack
1. Slide rear pegs into the dimples on the back wall of the dryer.
Lower the front legs to rest on the dryer opening.
2. Put the wet items on top of the rack. Leave space between
the items so air can reach all the surfaces. Close the door.
NOTE: Do not allow items to hang over the edge of the rack.
3. Select the Timed Dry cycle and Temperature, or the Air
Tumble cycle. Items containing foam, rubber, or plastic must
be dried on a clothesline or by using an air cycle.
4. Push the START button.
NOTE: The rack must be removed for normal tumbling.
Automatic cycles do not work with the drying rack.
This chart shows examples of items that can be rack dried and
the suggested cycle, temperature setting and drying time. Actual
drying time will depend on the amount of moisture items hold.
