Fire Hazard

  • Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from dryer.
  • DO NOT dry anything that has ever had anything flammable on it (even after washing).
  • No washer can completely remove oil.
  • DO NOT dry anything that has ever had any type of oil on it (including cooking oils).
  • Items containing foam, rubber, or plastic must be dried on a clothesline.
  • Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
  • As a general rule, if clothes are sorted properly for the washer, they are sorted properly for the dryer. Try also to sort items according to size. For example, do not dry a sheet with socks or other small items.
  • Do not add fabric softener sheets once the load has become warm, they may cause fabric softener stains.
  • Do not overload. This wastes energy and causes wrinkling.

Drying Rack

A handy drying rack may be used for drying delicate items such as washable sweaters. Place items flat on the drying rack. Dry with low heat.

A drying rack is installed in your dryer when it leaves the factory. To remove it, tilt the top of the rack towards you to detach the legs from the slots in the lint filter, and gently remove from the drum. Do the reverse to reinstall it.

Lint Filter
  • The drying rack is designed for use with the ‘Rack Dry’ cycle. Use with sensor cycles may result in damp items or extended cycle times.
  • Do not use this drying rack when there are other clothes in the dryer that are not placed on the rack.
