Is the exhaust vent the correct length?
Check that the exhaust vent is not too long or has too many
turns. Long venting will increase drying times. See "Plan Vent
System."
Is the exhaust vent diameter the correct size?
Use 4" (10.2 cm) diameter vent material.
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from dryer.
Place dryer at least 18 inches (46 cm) above the floor
for a garage installation.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
Is the dryer located in a room with temperature below
45ºF (7ºC)?
Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above
45ºF (7ºC).
Is the dryer located in a closet?
Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top and
bottom of the door. The front of the dryer requires a minimum
of 1" (2.5 cm) of airspace, and, for most installations, the rear
of the dryer requires 5" (12.7 cm). See "Installation
Instructions."
Has an air dry cycle been selected?
Select the right cycle for the types of garments being dried.
See "Modifiers."
Is the load too large and heavy to dry quickly?
Separate the load to tumble freely.
Are clothes coming out of the Refresh cycle with damp or
wet spots?
Under certain environmental or installation conditions you
may experience underdrying. Select the Touch Up cycle
(20 min. default time), which can be customized by selecting
High temperature and/or additional cycle time by pressing
the Timed Cycle Adjust More Time button.
Cycle time too short
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install dryer.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Is the automatic cycle ending early?
The load may not be contacting the sensor strips. Level the
dryer.
Change the dryness level setting on Automatic Cycles.
Increasing or decreasing the dryness level will change the
amount of drying time in a cycle.
Do not use a dryer rack with an automatic cycle.

Lint on load
Is the lint screen clogged?
Clean lint screen. Check for air movement.
Stains on load or drum
Was dryer fabric softener properly used?
Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle.
Fabric softener sheets added to a partially dried load can
temporarily stain your garments. Do not use fabric softener
sheets with SteamCare cycles.
Drum stains are caused by dyes in clothing (usually blue
jeans). This will not transfer to other clothing.
Loads are wrinkled
Was the load removed from dryer at the end of the cycle?
Select Touch Up Cycle to tumble the load with water and heat
to help smooth out wrinkles from a load left in the dryer.
Was the dryer overloaded?
Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely. Smaller loads of
1-4 garments yield best results with Refresh Cycle. Results
may also vary depending on fabric type. This cycle is best for
reducing wrinkles and odors from loads consisting of wrinkle-
free cotton, cotton polyester blends, common knits and
synthetics.
Loads are still wrinkled following SteamCare cycle?
Make sure water is connected to the dryer. Check that water
inlet hose is connected to both the faucet and dryer's water
inlet valve. Check that the water supply is turned on. This
cycle is best for smoothing out wrinkles and reducing odors
from loads consisting of wrinkle-free cotton, cotton polyester
blends, common knits and synthetic garments.
NOTE: Refer to garment care label instructions. Dry clean
only garments are not recommended.
Odors
Have you recently been painting, staining or varnishing in
the area where your dryer is located?
If so, ventilate the area. When the odors or fumes are gone
from the area, rewash and dry the clothing.
Is the dryer being used for the first time?
The new electric heating element may have an odor. The odor
will be gone after the first cycle.
Is water connected to the dryer?
Check that water inlet hose is connected to both the faucet
and dryer's water inlet valve. Check that the water supply is
turned on.
To remove odors left in garments after wearing, select Steam
Refresh for small loads of 1-4 garments. This cycle is best for
reducing wrinkles and odors from loads consisting of wrinkle-
free cotton, cotton polyester blends, common knits and
synthetics.
