Operating Your Dryer

WA R N I N G

To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury or death to persons, read the Safety Information section before operating the dryer.

W520

NOTE: The timer knob will not advance as quickly in the AUTOMATIC cycles as it does in the TIME DRY cycle. The time it takes for the timer to advance depends on the type and size of the load being dried.

The ENERGY SAVER settings, marked with a dot (), show which settings will use the least energy and will leave items damp for easier ironing.

Available Drying Cycles

NOTE: Use the automatic cycles for drying items that can be dried with heat. These cycles automatically dry loads to the dryness level selected.

MORE DRY will dry very small loads and some heavy items, such as blue jeans, but will overdry lightweight items, such as sheets and shirts. Overdrying can cause wrinkling, shrinking, excessive lint conditions, and will use more energy than necessary.

LESS DRY, which uses the least energy, will dry large loads and lightweight items, such as sheets and shirts, but might leave other items, such as denim and heavy bath towels, more damp.

To increase energy savings and to make sure loads are dried without overdrying, set your loads on LESS DRY. If items are damp at the end of a cycle, the timer knob needs to be set closer to the MORE DRY setting the next time these loads are dried. If items are overdry at the end of a cycle, the timer knob should be set closer to COOL DOWN when these loads are dried again. Remember the settings that work best to get ideal drying results.

The COOL DOWN period at the end of each cycle provides items a chance to tumble with no heat and cool down to room temperature. This prevents wrinkles from setting if items cannot be cared for immediately.

Automatic Regular/Delicate Cycle

Use for sturdy items like play or work clothes and also for delicate items. The type of heat is determined by choosing the proper Fabric Selector option. There are two settings in the AUTOMATIC REGULAR/DELICATE cycle — MORE DRY and LESS DRY.

Time Dry Cycle

This cycle will operate dryer for up to 75 minutes. Cottons and heavyweight items dry best between 50 and 75 minutes, and lightweight items dry best between 20 and 40 minutes.

Automatic Permanent Press/Knits Cycle

Use for permanent press items and synthetics. The type of heat is determined by selecting the proper Fabric Selector option. There are two settings in the AUTOMATIC PERMANENT PRESS/ KNITS cycle — MORE DRY and LESS DRY.

Maintenance

Lubrication

All moving parts are sealed in a permanent supply of lubricant or are equipped with oilless bearings. Additional lubrication will not be necessary.

Care of Your Dryer

WA R N I N G

To reduce the risk of an electric shock, serious injury or death, disconnect the electrical service to the dryer before cleaning the interior.

W132

Dryer Interior

Wipe the surfaces using a soft cloth and household cleaner or a non-abrasivepaste of powdered laundry detergent and hot water, followed by a short heat cycle with a load of rags.

To remove crayon or ball point ink off the dryer drum, put the heat on high and use old rags in the dryer to absorb the crayon or ink. If unsuccessful, contact the appliance dealer. DO NOT use any chemicals in the dryer.

IMPORTANT: The use of chlorine bleach for removing any discolorations should be avoided because bleach could damage the finish.

Cabinet

Wipe the dryer cabinet as needed. If detergent, bleach or other washing products have been spilled on the dryer, wipe immediately. Some products will cause permanent damage if spilled on the cabinet.

Control Panel

Use only a damp or sudsy cloth for cleaning the control panel. Some spray pretreat products may harm the finish on the control panel.

NOTE: The wiring diagram is located inside the control panel.

Exhaust System

WA R N I N G

To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect the electrical service to the dryer before cleaning.

W043

The exhaust duct should be inspected after one year of use and cleaned if necessary. Inspect and clean exhaust duct every one to two years as required thereafter.

The weather hood should be checked frequently to make sure the dampers move freely, dampers are not pushed in and that nothing has been set against them.

Keep dryer area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.

Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.

NOTE: Verify proper operation after servicing.

Motor Overload Protector

The dryer’s motor overload protector stops the motor automatically in the event of an overload. After cooling, the overload protector will reset itself. Dryer can be restarted by pushing the timer knob in. If overload protector cycles again, remove the dryer from use and call the service person to correct the problem.

Lint Filter

The lint filter is located at the front of the dryer in the lower part of the door opening.

CLEAN THE LINT FILTER BEFORE DRYING EACH LOAD. Remove lint filter cover, clean lint filter and replace cover. Annually remove lint filter and screw to vacuum the duct under it.

Troubleshooting

Try these troubleshooting tips before making a service call – You may save time and money!

Dryer Symptom

Possible Cause/Solution

 

 

Dryer won’t start

• For dryers equipped with a power cord, make sure the power cord is plugged all

 

the way into the electrical outlet.

 

• Make sure loading door is closed.

 

• Push timer knob in to start dryer.

 

• Make sure the laundry room fuse(s) isn’t blown or loose, or circuit breakers

 

aren’t open. The dryer itself does not have an electrical fuse. An electric dryer

 

has an electrical circuit with two fuses.

 

• Check if motor overload protector has cycled. Wait 10 minutes and try again.

 

 

Dryer won’t heat

• Make sure timer is not in COOL DOWN setting or that Fabric Selector is not set

 

at NO HEAT.

 

• Electric dryers only – Some homes may have two fuses or circuit breakers for an

 

electric dryer; both fuses or circuit breakers should be checked. Make sure the

 

laundry room fuse(s) isn’t blown or loose, or that the circuit breakers aren’t

 

open. The electric dryer itself does not have an electrical fuse.

 

• Gas dryer only – Make sure equipment and main gas line valve is turned on.

 

• Check exhaust duct to outside to see if it is kinked, blocked or needs cleaning.

 

• Check weather hood to make sure flapper moves freely, has not been pushed in or

 

has not been blocked.

 

 

Dryer doesn’t dry clothes

• Check exhaust duct to outside to see if it is kinked, blocked or needs cleaning.

satisfactorily

• Check weather hood to make sure flapper moves freely, has not been pushed in or

 

has not been blocked.

 

• Automatic cycle – Adjust to MORE or LESS DRY setting.

 

• Timed cycle – Allow more or less time.

 

• Clean the lint filter.

 

• Make sure the load isn’t too small. Small loads may not tumble properly or dry

 

evenly.

 

• Check load being dried. Heavy items dried with lightweight items will not dry as

 

quickly as the rest of the load. Refer to Sort section for proper sorting

 

information.

 

 

Dryer is noisy

• Check dryer for foreign objects (nails, coins, bobby pins, metal, plastic toys, etc.).

 

Remove items from dryer.

 

• Make sure dryer is level. Uneven leveling can cause vibration.

 

• Normal operating sounds include the tick of timer advancing, heat source going

 

on and off, and humming of air moving through the dryer and exhaust system.

 

 

Cycle advances too slowly

• Automatic cycles advance slower than the Time Dry cycle. When in an Automatic

 

cycle, the time it takes for the timer to advance depends on the type and size of

 

the load being dried. When clothing has more moisture, the timer advances

 

slower than when the clothes are more dry.

 

 

Clothes are too wrinkled

• Check heat setting. Overdrying can cause wrinkling.

 

• Check load size. Large loads may not tumble properly and may cause wrinkling.

 

 

Clothes have odor

• Check room for odors before drying clothes. Any odor (fried foods, paint, varnish,

 

cleaners, burning wood, etc.) will transfer to clothing as the dryer draws air from

 

the room. Ventilate room before drying clothes.
