AeroCare Controls

SmartTouchTM Control Dial (selected models only)

The SmartTouchTM Control Dial provides easy and efficient drying cycle selection. As you rotate the dial, the icon of the drying cycle selected will be illuminated, along with the default settings for that cycle on the right side of the control panel.

SmartTouchTM Buttons

The smooth, easy clean buttons enable simple selection of options with lights clearly showing the selections you are making.

Digital Display Screen

The digital display screen provides feedback on how long the drying cycle has to go. If you have programmed a DELAY START, the time remaining until the cycle will start will be displayed here, along with any messages to help you with the overall running of your dryer (eg user warnings).

Time To Go

Your AeroCare dryer displays approximately how many minutes the cycle has remaining, so that you can tell at a glance when your drying will be finished. Please be aware that a number of factors influence the overall cycle time, eg the fabric type, load size, the wetness of the load, environmental conditions, etc. If the dryer display screen shows a dashed line tracing around the outside of the screen, this indicates the dryer is sensing the moisture in the load. The updated time remaining will soon appear on the screen.

Progress Lights

The progress lights indicate what part of the cycle the dryer is currently up to (DAMP, DRY, or COOLING). The light for the current part of the cycle flashes, to let you know at a glance how dry your load is.


Keylock can be used to deactivate the buttons on your AeroCare dryer when it is in use. This will avoid accidental button touches from items left on top of the dryer (eg washing baskets, clothing) as well as touches from any little fingers.

To Turn Keylock ON or OFF:
  • Touch and hold the KEYLOCK button for two seconds.

    When activated, the light above the KEYLOCK button is illuminated.


If Keylock is Activated:
  • To turn your dryer on, touch and hold the POWER button for two seconds. This will activate the control panel. Keylock will remain activated but let you select your drying cycle options and start the cycle.
  • To PAUSE your dryer at any time during the cycle, touch and hold the START/PAUSE button for two seconds.
  • To STOP your dryer and power off, simply touch the POWER button.
