Protect Children

Do not allow children to play on or in the dryer. Close supervision of

children is necessary when the dryer is used near children. As children grow, teach
them the proper, safe use of all appliances.

Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing materials after the

dryer is unpacked. Children might use them for play. Cartons covered with rugs,
bedspreads or plastic sheets can become airtight chambers.

Keep laundry products out of children's reach. To prevent personal

injury, observe all warnings on product labels.

Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded, remove the

dryer door to prevent accidental entrapment.

Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.

Prevent Injury

To prevent shock hazard and assure stability during operation, the

dryer must be installed and electrically grounded by a qualified service person in
accordance with local codes. Installation instructions are packed in the dryer for the
installer's reference. Refer to INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for detailed grounding
procedures. If the dryer is moved to a new location, have it checked and reinstalled
by a qualified service person.

To prevent personal injury or damage to the dryer, the electrical

power cord must be plugged into a properly grounded system. Never ground the
dryer to a gas pipe. Do not use an extension cord or an adaptor plug.

ALWAYS disconnect the dryer from the electrical supply before

attempting any service or cleaning. Failure to do so can result in electrical shock or

Do not use any type spray cleanser when cleaning dryer interior.

Hazardous fumes or electrical shock could occur.

To prevent injury, do not reach into the dryer if the drum is moving.

Wait until the dryer has stopped completely before reaching into the drum.

To prevent injury and damage to the dryer:

All repairs and servicing must be performed by an authorized servicer
unless specifically recommended in this Owner's Guide. Use only authorized
factory parts.

Do not tamper with controls.

Do not install or store the dryer where it will be exposed to the weather.

A thermal limiter switch automatically turns off the motor in the unlikely event

of an overheated situation (electric dryers only). A service technician must replace the
thermal limiter switch after correcting the fault.

Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.
