What You Need to Know About
Safety Instructions

Warning and Important Safety Instructions appearing in
this manual are not meant to cover all possible
conditions and situations that may occur. Common
sense, caution and care must be exercised when
installing, maintaining or operating appliance.

Always contact your dealer, distributor, service agent or
manufacturer about problems or conditions you do not

Recognize Safety Symbols, Words
and Labels


FIRE HAZARD – 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.
