Drying Rack

The drying rack is useful for machine drying items you would not necessarily want to tumble
dry (for example, sweaters).
If your model does not have a drying rack, you may be able to purchase one for your model.
To find out whether your model allows drying rack usage and for information on ordering,
please refer to the front page of the manual or contact the dealer from whom you purchased
your dryer.
To use the drying rack
Do not remove the lint screen.
2. Slide drying rack over the bottom of the dryer door opening. Push down to secure rack on


3. Put the wet items on top of the rack. Leave space between the items so air can reach all

the surfaces. Close the door.
NOTE: Do not allow items to hang over the edge of the rack.

4. Select a timed drying cycle and temperature, or an air cycle. Items containing foam,

rubber, or plastic must be dried on a clothesline or by using an air cycle.

5. Press the PUSH TO START button.
NOTE: You must remove the drying rack for normal tumbling. Do not use Sensor Dry cycles
with the drying rack.
This chart shows examples of items that can be rack dried and the suggested cycle,
temperature setting and drying time. Actual drying time will depend on the amount of
moisture items hold.

*(Minutes) Reset time to complete drying, if needed.


Cleaning the Dryer Location

Keep dryer area clear and free from items that would obstruct the flow of combustion and
ventilation air.

Cleaning the Lint Screen

Clean lint screen before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time.

Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose, damaged, blocked or missing. Doing so
can cause overheating and damage to both the dryer and fabrics.

If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal, check the exhaust hood and
remove the lint.

Every Load Cleaning

1. The lint screen is located in the door of the dryer. Pull the lint screen straight up. Roll lint

off the screen with your fingers. Do not rinse or wash screen to remove lint. Wet lint is
hard to remove.

2. Push the lint screen firmly back into place.
