Spanish Owner's Guides

Frigidaire Company

P. O. Box 9061

Dublin, Ohio 43017-0961

Before Operating Your Laundry Center

Read your laundry center Owner's Guide. It has important safety and warranty information. It also has many suggestions for obtaining the best drying results.

To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons, read the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS in your laundry center Owner's Guide before operating this appliance.

Operating Steps

1.Prepare items for drying.

2.Check that lint screen is clean and properly in place.

3.Load the dryer. If desired, add a dryer fabric softener sheet.

4.Close the dryer door.

5.Turn cycle selector clockwise to desired setting.

6.Start dryer. Push the Push to Start button for 2 seconds.

7.At end of cycle, remove items immediately and hang or fold.

8.Clean lint screen after every load.

Cycle Settings

Turn the cycle selector clockwise to the desired cycle and setting.

Each cycle ends with a cool down period. The heat automatically turns off and the load continues to tumble for 5-10minutes. This reduces wrinkling and makes items easier to handle during unloading.

Drying time varies depending on size and dampness of load, weight and fabric type. Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and electrical voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying time.

AUTO DRY-HIGH HEAT is recommended for regular and permanent press items that can be tumble dried at high heat. The AutoDry-HighHeat cycle determines drying time automatically.

For items requiring more drying time, set the cycle selector on MORE DRY. For items requiring less drying time, set the cycle selector on LESS DRY.

This cycle works best with items of similar fabric, weight and construction.

TIME DRY-LOW HEAT provides up to 90 minutes of drying time at low heat for permanent press, knit and delicate items.

AIR FLUFF-NO HEAT provides up to 30 minutes of tumbling without heat. Use AirFluff-NoHeat to freshen clothing, pillows or blankets or to dust draperies. Heatsensitive items such as plastics, foam rubber or similarly texturedrubber-likematerials or items containing feathers or down should be driedonly with the AirFluff-NoHeat cycle.

To avoid fire hazard, do not use heat to dry items containing feathers or down, foam rubber, plastics, or similarly textured,rubber-likematerials. Use AirFluff-NoHeat cycle only.

P/N 131546900 (9512)

Control Settings Chart

Always consult fabric care labels before drying. For items without labels, follow suggested settings below. The suggested drying times are approximate. Actual time needed will vary depending on size and dampness of load, weight and fabric type. Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and electrical voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying time. Items dried in a dryer operating on a 208 volt circuit instead of a 240 volt circuit require 20% more drying time than listed. To avoid fire hazard, do not use heat to dry items containing feathers or down, foam rubber, plastics, or similarly textured, rubber-like materials. Use Air Fluff-No Heat setting only.
