Do not allow children or pets to play on, in, or in front of the appliance. Close supervision is necessary when the appliance is used near children and pets.

Before discarding or removing your dryer from service, remove the door to the drying compartment to prevent children or animals from becoming trapped inside.

Do not reach into the appliance when the drum is moving.

Do not install or store this appliance where it will be exposed to the weather.

Do not tamper with controls.

Do not repair, replace, or attempt to service any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the user-repair instructions and you understand and have the skills to carry those out.

Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended for dryer use by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.

Clean the lint screen before or after each load.

Keep the area around the exhaust opening and surrounding areas free from lint, dust, and dirt.

The interior of the dryer and exhaust duct should be cleaned periodically by qualified service personnel.

This appliance must be properly grounded. Never plug the power cord into a receptacle that is not grounded adequately and in accordance with local and national codes. See installation instructions for grounding this appliance.

Do not sit on top of the dryer.

Ensure pockets are free from small irregularly shaped hard objects, foreign material, etc. ie. WARNING coins, knives, pins, etc. These objects could damage your dryer.

Do not wash clothing with large buckles, buttons, or other heavy metal or solid things.

Gas leaks may occur in your system, resulting in a dangerous situation.


Gas leaks may not be detected by smell alone.

Gas suppliers recommend you purchase and install a UL-approved gas detector.

Install and use in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Do not place items in your dryer 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.

Residual oil on clothing can ignite spontaneoulsy. The potential for spontaneous combustion increases when items containing vegetable oil or cooking oil are exposed to heat. Heat sources such as your 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 not eliminate, the hazard. Always use the Cool Down cycle for these items to reduce their temperature. Never remove these items from the 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.
