Important Safety Information

!WARNING

To reduce risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury, or death when using your dryer, follow these basic precautions:

1.Read all instructions before using dryer.

2.Install dryer according to Installation Instructions. Refer to the Grounding Instructions in the Installation Instructions for proper grounding of the dryer.

3.Do not dry articles that have been cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, dry-cleaningsolvents, or other flammable or explosive substances. Vapors could ignite or explode.

4.Do not use dryer to dry clothes which have traces of any flammable substance, such as vegetable oil, cooking oil, machine oil, flammable chemicals, thinner, etc., or anything containing wax or chemicals, such as mops and cleaning cloths. Flammable substances may cause fabric to catch fire by itself.

5.Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids near this or any other appliance.

6.Do not allow children to play on or in dryer. Close supervision of children is necessary when dryer is used near children, a safety rule for all appliances.

7.Before dryer is removed from service or discarded, remove door to drying compartment.

8.Do not reach into dryer if cylinder is revolving.

9.Do not install or store dryer where it will be exposed to water and/or weather.

10.Do not tamper with dryer controls.

11.Do not repair or replace any part of dryer or attempt any service, unless specifically recommended in user-maintenanceinstructions or in publisheduser-repairinstructions that you understand and have skills to carry out.

12.To reduce risk of electric shock or fire, do not use extension cords or adapters to connect dryer to electrical power source.

13.Use the dryer only for its intended purpose, drying clothes.

14.Always disconnect dryer from electrical supply before attempting any service. Disconnect power cord by grasping the plug, not the cord.

15.Do not use heat to dry articles containing foam rubber or similarly textured rubberlike materials.

16.Always clean the lint filter after every load. A layer of lint in the filter reduces drying efficiency and prolongs drying time.

17.Use only fabric softeners or products to eliminate static that are appropriate for automatic dryers.

18.Keep your dryer in good condition. Bumping or dropping dryer can damage safety features. If damage occurs, have dryer checked by qualified service technician.

19.Replace worn power cords and/or loose plugs.

20.Do not tumble fiberglass curtains and draperies unless the label says it can be done. If they are dried, wipe out the cylinder with a damp cloth to remove particles of fiberglass.

21.Always read and follow manufacturer’s instructions on packages of laundry aids. Heed all warnings or precautions. To reduce risk of poisoning or chemical burns, keep products away from children at all times, preferably, in a locked cabinet.

22.Never operate dryer with guards and/or panels removed.

23.Do not operate dryer with missing or broken parts.

24.Do not bypass safety devices.

25.Keep area around the exhaust opening and adjacent surrounding areas free from accumulation of lint, dust, and dirt.

26.Interior of dryer and exhaust duct should be cleaned periodically by qualified service personnel.

27.Dryer will not operate with loading door open. DO NOT bypass door safety switch by permitting dryer to operate with door open. Dryer will stop tumbling when door is opened. Do not use dryer if it does not stop tumbling when door is opened or starts tumbling without pressing or turning the START mechanism. Remove the dryer from use and call

the service person.

28.Remove laundry immediately after the dryer stops.

29.ALWAYS follow the fabric care instructions supplied by the garment manufacturer.

California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act (Proposition 65)—GasDryers Only

The Governor of California is required to publish a list of substances known to the state of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm and requires business to warn customers of potential exposures to such substances.

Gas appliances contain or produce substances which can cause death or serious illness and which are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. To reduce the risk from substances in fuel or from fuel combustion, make sure this appliance is installed, operated, and maintained according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Drying Clothes

If These Controls

are Different from

Yours

These controls are intended to show the variety of features that are available in the product line. If your dryer does not have all the options that are shown, it is not a mistake. The information provided applies to several of the models in the product line.

Lint

Filter

IMPORTANT: Lint filter must be in place in door opening when using dryer or loading and unloading dryer. If filter is not in place, clothing could fall into front air duct.

1. Sort clothes for drying

Properly dried clothes will need a minimum of care when removed from the dryer. Clothes properly sorted for washing should be properly sorted for drying also. Follow the examples below.

Heavy and Light

Lightweight fabrics dry faster than heavyweight

weight Fabrics

fabrics. If mixed loads are dried together (such

 

as sheets and towels), remove the lighter

 

weight fabrics when they are dry to prevent

 

over drying and wrinkling.

 

 

2. Clean the lint filter before each use

A clean lint filter ensures efficient drying and clothes will remain lintfree when unloading dryer. A layer of lint on the screen will reduce air flow through the dryer and lengthen drying time. Lint screen may be washed if needed.

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

Replace lint filter in door recess and push in firmly. Words on filter should face front of dryer.

Add clothes loosely into dryer drum. Add fabric softener sheet, if desired.Close loading door. Dryer will not operate with the door open.

3. Select FABRIC SELECTOR setting

Set FABRIC SELECTOR knob to most appropriate temperature for type of fabric in load. Follow garment manufacturer’s care label for recommended temperature settings. See chart below.

4. Select SIGNAL volume (some models)

If a volume level is selected, the signal will let you know when the cycle is done. Signal will stop when the door is opened, or when the timer is advanced to an OFF position.

5. Select EXTENDED TUMBLE, if desired (some models)

On Automatic cycles only, EXTENDED TUMBLE cycle helps to reduce wrinkling after the normal drying cycle. After COOL DOWN portion of the cycle, it continues to tumble clothes without heat for 40 minutes, until the dryer door is opened, or the switch is turned to the OFF position.

6. Turn timer to desired setting

The cycles control the drying time. The ENERGY SAVER setting, marked with a dash (–),shows which dryer settings will use the least energy and will leave items damp for easier ironing.

The AUTOMATIC cycles will automatically determine the time needed to dry your clothes and will work on any FABRIC SELECTOR setting.

Set the timer for the type of fabric in the load.

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

AUTOMATIC WRINKLE OUT cycle (some models) helps remove wrinkles from slightly wrinkled items that may have been sitting in a dryer or laundry basket overnight. The cycle has a short heat setting followed by a 5 minute COOL DOWN.

Features, Hints, and Care

Follow the Colors

Your dryer control panel is color coordinated for your convenience. When you set your controls, notice which colors are the same. They will help guide you through setting the controls.

Drying Times

It is impossible to give exact drying times. Conditions from home to home vary and directly affect drying times. The length of time it takes to dry loads will depend on several variables.

Load size

Type of fabric, washer, and spin speed will determine moisture in the fabric.

Heat and moisture in the room. Damp air coming into the dryer will increase drying time.

Installation (length of exhaust duct, etc.).

Electric voltage or gas pressure.

If you have an automatic cycle, you need not worry about time. The automatic cycle will determine the time needed. Set the timer for the type of fabric in the load. See the operating instructions provided with your dryer. Do not set the timer for a “higher” setting than necessary. If you have a permanent press, knit cycle, use it for loads of permanent press, knits and for clothes made from or containing synthetic fibers. This cycle has a longer COOL DOWN period at the end of the cycle to reduce wrinkling.

Optional Drying Rack

 

(some models)

 

Drying Rack, Part No. 504105, is useful for

 

drying items that require no-tumbledrying,

 

such as tennis shoes, sweaters, stuffed

 

toys or other delicate items.

 

General Dryer Care

Drying Rack

Cleaning

 

Ordinarily, dryer cylinder will need no care.

Wipe 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.

Do not allow sharp or rough objects to lean against the dryer. The finish could be damaged.

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

Lint Filter

Clean lint filter after drying each load. A clean lint filter ensures efficient drying and clothes will remain lint-freewhen unloading dryer. A layer of lint on the screen will reduce air flow through the dryer and lengthen drying time. Lint screen may be washed with soap and water if needed.

Lubrication

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

Exhaust System

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 (gas dryers) and ventilation air.

How to Remove Ball Point Pen Ink Marks from the Dryer Drum

If the ink stain is fresh, place dry rags in the dryer. Using the hottest heat setting, run the dryer for one hour to absorb the ink.

If the stain is not fresh, apply household spray or cream cleaner to a soft cloth, and rub the stain. Then, place wet rags in the dryer. Using the hottest heat setting, run the dryer for one hour to remove any cleaner residue.

Special Instructions

 

 

 

Bedspreads

 

Choose heat for the type fabric used. Dry one double or two single spreads at once. Chenille and

 

 

tufted spreads will shed lint and should be dried alone. New spreads will contain loose lint. Tumble

 

 

new spreads on NO HEAT setting before washing to remove loose lint. These spreads may be dried

 

 

completely.

 

 

 

Blankets

Electric

DELICATE or NO HEAT cycles. If the manufacturer recommends drying the blanket in the dryer, follow

 

 

the “Wool” instructions below. Do not stretch the blanket because of the wiring. Some electric blankets

 

 

may have insulation on the thermostats or on the wiring which will not withstand dryer heat. Do not dry

 

 

in dryer unless the blanket manufacturer says it can be done.

 

 

 

 

Synthetic Fibers

DELICATE or NO HEAT cycles. Some of these blankets are fluffy and will shed lint. Tumble on NO

 

 

HEAT setting before washing to remove loose lint. Use a gentle wash method, then dry in dryer until

 

 

just dry. The lint filter may need to be cleaned during the drying.

 

 

 

 

Thermal

AUTOMATIC REGULAR cycle.

 

Cotton

 

 

 

 

 

Wool

Agitation and tumbling contribute to the shrinkage and felting of wool. We cannot guarantee that wool

 

 

will not shrink. However, if care is taken and the blanket manufacturer’s instructions are followed,

 

 

satisfactory results should be obtained. Wash by the soak method with as little agitation as possible.

 

 

After washing, stretch blanket gently in both directions. Use approximately five dry bath towels and

 

 

place them between folds in blanket. This will "cushion” it to lessen the tumbling. Set dryer for 20

 

 

minutes on the TIME DRY cycle. Use REGULAR heat setting, if it is available on your dryer. Check

 

 

blanket when timer reaches 10. Wool blankets must be removed from the dryer when damp. Stretch

 

 

gently to shape and finish drying over two clotheslines or in a flat position.

 

 

 

Quilts

 

Choose heat and cycle for fabric. Filling and cover must be completely washable. Old quilts may be too

 

 

fragile to machine wash or dry. Quilts filled with cotton may become lumpy. Quilting should be close

 

 

together. Remove from dryer slightly damp and stretch gently to shape. Quilted articles may shrink if

 

 

over dried.

 

 

 

Mattress Pads

 

Material in mattress pads is made of either cotton or synthetic fibers. Read fiber content label, found on

 

 

your mattress pad, to determine what type of fiber was used to manufacture the pad. READ AND

 

 

CAREFULLY FOLLOW the fabric care instructions supplied by the mattress pad manufacturer. Some

 

 

pads made of synthetic fibers are very heat sensitive. These pads can be flammable if over-heatedor

 

 

over-dried.TO AVOID A FIRE HAZARD, DO NOTOVER-DRYmattress pads. Remove pads from the

 

 

dryer while they are still damp.

 

 

 

Slip Covers

 

Choose heat for fabric. Close zippers. Dry one couch cover, two chair covers or five or six pillow covers

 

 

at one time. Remove from dryer when slightly damp. Press pleats if necessary and replace on furniture

 

 

immediately. Stretch fabrics and knits should be dried completely so they will fit snugly when replaced

 

 

on furniture.

 

 

 

Pillows

Feather and

Ticking must be strong and seams secure. If in doubt, sew pillow into a case or use a zippered

 

Down-Filled

pillowcase to prevent feathers from coming out. After washing, shake pillow to fluff feathers. Dry one

 

 

large or two smaller pillows. Use TIME DRY cycle. Use LOW or MEDIUM heat setting if it is available

 

 

on you dryer. Shake and reposition pillows several times during drying. Pillows must be dry in the

 

 

center to prevent mildew. Drying may take two hours or longer. Reset dryer timer if necessary. The

 

 

odor of wet feathers is not pleasant. However, the odor will disappear once the pillows dry.

 

 

 

 

Fiber-Filled

Follow manufacturer’s directions.

 

(polyester)

 

 

 

 

 

Foam Rubber

Do not dry in the dryer.

 

 

 

Curtains

Cotton

AUTOMATIC REGULAR or TIME DRY cycles. Remove damp items for ironing or dry completely, then

 

 

steam iron.

 

 

 

 

Fiberglass

DO NOT DRY IN THE DRYER unless recommended by the manufacturer. Fiberglass may shred.

 

 

Particles may remain in the dryer and rub off on the next load. This could irritate the skin. “Beta”

 

 

fiberglass may be dried in the dryer if recommended by the manufacturer.

 

 

 

 

Synthetic

DELICATE or NO HEAT cycles. Allow room for tumbling to prevent wrinkling. Delicate or sheer

 

Fibers

curtains must be dried by themselves so they will not be snagged by hooks or crushed by other clothes

 

 

in the load. Some sheer curtains are heat sensitive. Dry 10 minutes only, plus the cool down period.

 

 

Remove from dryer immediately and hang. If the dryer has been heated from a previous load, NO

 

 

HEAT setting may be sufficient.

 

 

 

Draperies

 

Remove hooks and weights before washing. Choose heat for fabric and allow space in the dryer for

 

 

tumbling. Some draperies may be removed when slightly damp and hung immediately. Lined draperies

 

 

should be dry-cleanedbecause they have a tendency to pucker.

Special Instructions

 

 

 

 

Knit articles

All Knits

Knit fabrics are usually manufactured under tension (stretching). Cotton knits especially may relax or draw

 

 

together if every bit of moisture is removed form them. It is best to take them out of the dryer with a trace

 

 

of moisture remaining, then stretch to shape. If they do shrink from overdrying, rewet them and dry

 

 

properly.

 

 

 

 

Cottons

AUTOMATIC REGULAR or TIME DRY cycle. Remove slightly damp to minimize ironing. Reshape,

 

 

smooth seams and pockets, etc.

 

 

 

 

Synthetic Fibers

AUTOMATIC REGULAR or AUTOMATIC PERMANENT PRESS cycle. Turn inside out to prevent “pilling”

 

(nylon, orlon,

(rolling up of the fiber ends from friction). Dry sweaters only with similar things because they tend to

 

polyester etc.)

attract lint. Make sure the load is large enough for tumbling. Dry completely and remove from dryer

 

 

immediately to minimize wrinkling.

 

 

 

 

Wool

DELICATE or NO HEAT cycle. For wool labeled “machine washable” follow manufacturer’s directions. For

 

 

other wool, use wool blanket method. Do not dryer loosely knit wool or hand knits. Dry these flat and

 

 

stretch to shape from a pattern drawn before washing.

 

 

 

Lingerie

Cotton

AUTOMATIC REGULAR cycle.

 

 

 

 

Elastic

Body oils can cause elastic to deteriorate. Wash garments containing elastic frequently. Elastic in such

 

 

things as shorts may be dried, however avoid overdrying.

 

 

 

 

Foam Rubber

Bras, bathing suits, sun suits, etc, DO NOT DRY THESE ITEMS IN THE DRYER WITH HEAT, FIRE MAY

 

 

RESULT. NO HEAT setting may be used.

 

 

 

 

Stretch Fabrics

Choose heat for the most delicate fiber. These may be dried completely as they will stretch into shape.

 

 

Avoid drying with lint-sheddingfabrics.

 

 

 

 

Synthetic Fibers

TIME DRY cycle. Use a DELICATE or LOW HEAT setting, if it is available on dryer. Some sheer fabrics,

 

 

especially sheer knits, can be heat sensitive. Dry these until they are just dry (about 10 minutes) and

 

 

remove from dryer immediately. Sheer fabrics should not be washed and dried with garments containing

 

 

hooks or zippers. Synthetic fabrics will create static electricity if overdried. TO prevent this use fabric

 

 

softener and avoid overdrying.

 

 

 

Denim,
