This feature will only beep when the Damp Alert option is selected. The dryer will continue to dry after the Damp Alert indicator is populated on the screen and dryer beeps. Removing clothes and hanging them when they are damp can reduce the need to iron some items.

Extended Tumble Minimizes wrinkles by adding approximately 2 hours of no-heat tumbling after clothes are dry.

The estimated time remaining display will show “END”.

The extended tumble time does not get added to the cycle time on the display.

Detangle Activates alternating forward and reverse tumbling to reduce tangling. dry more evenly. and improve drying times. Typical loads such as bed and bath mixed loads. where sheets. towels and pillow cases are laundered together. benefit from this capability. When the dryer reverses direction. there will be a slight pause and sound change. This is normal.

NOTE: Detangle is selected by default for Towels and Heavy Duty cycles. eDry Reduces total energy consumption of specific dryer cycles by adjusting certain heat settings.

NOTE: Cycle times will change when eDry is selected.

ENERGY STAR models are tested on Cottons cycle with default settings to determine energy use rating of this dryer. The eDry option will default to on for Cottons. Temperature settings on High and dryness level setting on Dry are specifically designed for this cycle to reduce energy consumption. For optimal energy savings. turn eDry on.
