care and cleaning


Clean with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use abrasive substances. Do not spray cleaners directly on the panel.

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


Remove any stains such as crayon, ink, or fabric dye (from new items such as towels or jeans) with an all- purpose cleaner.

Tumble old towels or rags to remove any excess stain or cleaning substance.

Once these steps are followed, stains may still be visible, but should not transfer to subsequent loads.


To clean the stainless steel tumbler, use a damp cloth with a mild, non-abrasive cleaner suitable for stainless steel surfaces.

Remove the cleaner residue and dry with a clean cloth.


Clean with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use abrasive substances. Protect the surface from sharp objects.

Do not place any heavy or sharp objects or a detergent box on the dryer. Keep them on the purchased pedestal or in a separate storage box. This may scratch or damage the top cover of the dryer.

Since the entire dryer has a high-gloss finish, the surface can be scratched or damaged. Therefore, avoid scratching or damaging the surface when using the dryer.
