This booklet covers several different models. Your dryer may not have all of the cycles and features described.

Before using your dryer. wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to remove dust from storing and shipping.

Clean lint screen before each load. See "Cleaning the Lint Screen."

Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.

Turn the Cycle Selector Control to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. ENERGY PREFERRED automatic dry settings are indicated by an asterisk (*) on the timer dial. next to the words NORMAL DRY. Use this Normal Dry cycle to dry most heavy- to medium-weight fabrics.

Set the Temperature control to the recommended setting for the type of fabric being dried. See Dryer Cycle Descriptions (separate sheet) for temperature suggestions.

(OPTIONAL) Your dryer may have a WRINKLE GUARD ® feature selector. When you are unable to remove a load from the dryer as soon as it stops. wrinkles can form. This feature periodically tumbles. rearranges and fluffs the load without heat to help avoid wrinkling. (OPTIONAL) If you want the dryer to sound a signal when the cycle is finished. set the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL control to ON. or to the volume level you prefer (on some models). The signal is helpful when you are drying permanent press. synthetics and other items that should be removed from the dryer as soon as it stops.

How Automatic Drying Works During the Automatic Drying Cycle. the exhaust temperature of the dryer determines the drying time and dryness levels. A thermostat signals the Cycle Control Knob when to move into Cool Down. The drying time for an Automatic Drying Cycle depends on load type and load size. When drying a large or heavy load. the Cycle Control Knob may take a long time before it begins to advance into Cool Down. Automatic Drying Cycle takes the guesswork out of drying time and enhances fabric care. The amount of time that is displayed is the estimated time remaining in the cycle.

TUMBLE FREE TM Non-Heated Dryer Rack Use with 29" (73.7 cm) wide dryers. Air circulates in a concentrated pattern over and around clothes to allow efficient and uniform drying.
