Care & Cleaning

Control Panel

The control panel finish could be damaged by some
laundry pre-treatment soil and stain-remover products.
Apply such products away from the dryer and wipe up
any spills or overspray immediately.

Dryer Exterior

substances. Protect the surface from sharp objects.

Dryer Exhaust System
