Maytag MD7500 User Manual
Do not place into your dryer items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable oil or
cooking oil. Even after being washed, these items may contain significant amounts of these oils. The
remaining oil can ignite spontaneously. The potential for spontaneous ignition increases when the items
containing vegetable oil or cooking oil are exposed to heat. Heat sources, such as your clothes dryer, can
warm these items, allowing an oxidation reaction in the oil to occur. Oxidation creates heat. If this heat
cannot escape, the items can become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing these kinds of
items may prevent heat from escaping and can create a fire hazard.
All washed and unwashed fabrics that contain vegetable oil or cooking oil can be dangerous.Washing these
items in hot water with extra detergent will reduce, but will not eliminate, the hazard. Always use the
“cool down” cycle for these items to reduce the items’ temperature. Never remove these items from the
clothes dryer hot or interrupt the drying cycle until the items have run through the “cool down” cycle.
Never pile or stack these items when they are hot.
