First try the solutions
suggested
here to possibly
avoid the cost of a service
call.
if you
experience
Possible
Causes
Solution
Cycle time too short
Automatic
Dry cycle ending
early.
Lint on load
Stains on load or drum
Lint screen clogged.
Dryer fabric softener
not properly
used.
Loads are wrinkled
Load not removed
from dryer at the
end of the cycle.
Dryer tightly
packed.
Odors
Have you recently
been painting,
staining,
or varnishing
in the area
where your dryer
is located?
Is the electric
dryer being used for
the first time?
Load is too hot
Were laundry
items removed
from
the dryer before the end of the
cycle?
Was a high temperature
cycle
used or was TEMPERATURE
control
set to high?
The load may not be contacting
the sensor strips.
Level the
dryer.
Use Timed
Dry for very small loads. Change
the Dry Level
setting
on Automatic
Dry cycles.
Increasing
or decreasing
the Dry Level setting
will change the
amount
of drying time
in a cycle.
Lint screen should
be cleaned
before each load.
Add dryer fabric
softener
sheets at the beginning
of the cycle.
Fabric softener
sheets
added to a partially
dried
load can stain
your garments.
Drum stains are caused
by dyes in clothing
(usually blue jeans).
These will not transfer
to other clothing.
Select Wrinkle
Prevent option to tumble
the load without
heat
to avoid wrinkling.
Dry smaller loads that can tumble
freely reduce wrinkles
from
forming.
If so, ventilate
the area. When the odors
or fumes
are gone
from the area, rewash and dry the clothing.
The new electric
heating element
may have an odor. The odor
will be gone after the first cycle.
Allow
Cool Down cycle to finish before removing
laundry from
dryer. All cycles
are cooled slowly to reduced
wrinkling
and
make it easier to handle.
Items removed
before Cool Down
may feel very warm.
Select a lower temperature,
and use an automatic
drying
cycle.
These cycles
sense the temperature
or the moisture
level in the
load and shut off when the load reaches the selected
dryness.
This reduces overdrying,
