Dryer Safety

Your safety and the safety of others are very important.

We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety messages.

This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others. All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word

DANGER
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t immediately follow instructions.

Warning

You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow instructions.

All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.

WARNING – “Risk of Fire”

  • Clothes dryer installation must be performed by a qualified installer.
  • Install the clothes dryer according to the manufacturer’s instructions and local codes.
  • Do not install a clothes dryer with flexible plastic venting materials or flexible metal (foil type) duct. If flexible metal duct is installed, it must be of a specific type identified by the appliance manufacturer as suitable for use with clothes dryers. Flexible venting materials are known to collapse, be easily crushed, and trap lint. These conditions will obstruct clothes dryer airflow and increase the risk of fire.
  • To reduce the risk of severe injury or death, follow all installation instructions.
  • Save these instructions.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTION

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using the dryer, follow basic precautions, including the following:

  • Read all instructions before using the dryer.
  • Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer. Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to a chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire. To reduce the risk of fire due to contaminated loads, the final part of a tumble dryer cycle occurs without heat (cool down period). Avoid stopping a tumble dryer before the end of the drying cycle unless all items are quickly removed and spread out so that the heat is dissipated.
  • Do not dry articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances as they give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
  • Do not allow children to play on or in the dryer. Close supervision of children is necessary when the dryer is used near children.
  • Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded, remove the door to the drying compartment.
  • Do not reach into the dryer if the drum is moving.
  • Do not install or store the dryer where it will be exposed to the weather.
  • Do not tamper with controls.
  • Do not repair or replace any part of the dryer or attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended in this Use and Care Guide or in published user-repair instructions that you understand and have the skills to carry out.
  • Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
  • Do not use heat to dry articles containing foam rubber or similarly textured rubber-like materials.
  • Clean lint screen before or after each load.
  • Keep area around the exhaust opening and adjacent surrounding areas free from the accumulation of lint, dust, and dirt.
  • The interior of the dryer and exhaust vent should be cleaned periodically by qualified service personnel.
  • See “Electrical Requirements” located in the installation instructions for grounding instructions.

Check Your Vent System for Good Air Flow

WARNING icon WARNING

Fire Hazard Fire Hazard

Use a heavy metal vent.
Do not use a plastic vent.
Do not use a metal foil vent.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or fire.

Good air flow

Along with heat, dryers require good air flow to efficiently dry laundry. Proper venting will reduce your drying times and improve your energy savings. See Installation Instructions.

The venting system attached to the dryer plays a big role in good air flow.

Service calls caused by improper venting are not covered by the warranty and will be paid by the customer, regardless of who installed the dryer.

Maintain good air flow:

  • Clean your lint screen before each load.
  • Replace plastic or foil vent material with 4″ (102 mm) diameter heavy, rigid vent material.
    Diameter
  • Use the shortest length of vent possible.
  • Use no more than four 90° elbows in a vent system; each bend and curve reduces air flow.
    Vent system bent
  • Remove lint and debris from the exhaust hood.
  • Remove lint from the entire length of the vent system at least every 2 years. When cleaning is complete, be sure to follow the Installation Instructions supplied with your dryer for final product check.
  • Clear away items from the front of the dryer.

Use ACCUDRY™/Automatic Dry Cycles for Better Fabric Care and Energy Savings

Use the ACCUDRY™/Automatic Dry cycles to provide the most energy savings and enhanced fabric care from the dryer. During ACCUDRY™/Automatic Dry cycles, drying air temperature or moisture level are sensed in the load. This sensing occurs throughout the drying cycle and the dryer shuts off when the load reaches the selected dryness. With Timed Dry, the dryer runs the amount of time set and sometimes results in shrinkage, wrinkling, and static due to overdrying.

Use Timed Dry for the occasional damp load that needs a little more drying time or when using the drying rack.

Keep dryer area clear and free from items that would block the air flow for proper dryer operation. This includes clearing piles of laundry in front of the dryer.

 WARNING icon WARNING

Explosion HazardEXPLOSION HAZARD

Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from dryer.

Place dryer at least 18 inches (460 mm) above the floor for a garage installation.

Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.

Cleaning the dryer interior

To clean dryer drum 

  1. Apply a liquid, nonflammable household cleaner to the stained area of the drum and rub with a soft cloth until stain is removed.
  2. Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth.
  3. Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry the drum.
    NOTE: Garments that contain loose dyes, such as denim blue jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor the dryer interior. These stains are not harmful to your dryer and will not stain future loads of clothes. Dry these items inside out to avoid drum staining.
Removing accumulated lint

From Inside the Dryer Cabinet 

Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often, depending on dryer usage. Cleaning should be done by a qualified servicer.

From the Exhaust Vent 

Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often, depending on dryer usage.

Cleaning the lint screen

Every load cleaning 

The lint screen is located in the dryer. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time

To clean: 

  1. Pull the lint screen out of its holder. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers. Do not rinse or wash screen to remove lint. Wet lint is hard to remove.
    Cleaning the lint screen
  2. Push the lint screen firmly back into place.

IMPORTANT: 

  • 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. See “Venting Requirements.”

As needed cleaning 

Laundry detergent and fabric softener residue can build up on the lint screen. This buildup can cause longer drying times for your clothes, or cause the dryer to stop before your load is completely dry. The screen is probably clogged if lint falls off while the screen is in the dryer.

Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every 6 months, or more frequently, if it becomes clogged due to a residue buildup.

To wash: 

  1. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers.
  2. Wet both sides of lint screen with hot water.
  3. Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid detergent. Scrub lint screen with the brush to remove residue buildup.

Troubleshooting

First try the solutions suggested here or visit our website at www.whirlpool.com/product_help – In Canada www.whirlpool.ca for assistance and to possibly avoid a service call.

If you experience Possible Causes Solution
Clothes are not drying satisfactorily; drying times are too long Lint screen clogged with lint. Lint screen should be cleaned before each load.
Fluff Air cycle or No Heat temperature setting has been selected. Select the right cycle for the types of garments being dried. See “Cycle Guide.”
Load too large and heavy to dry quickly. Separate the load to tumble freely.
Exhaust vent or outside exhaust hood clogged with lint, restricting air movement. Run the dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold your hand under the outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you do not feel air movement, clean exhaust system of lint or replace exhaust vent with heavy metal or flexible metal vent. Make sure vent is not crushed or kinked. See Installation Instructions.
Fabric softener sheets blocking the grille. Use only one fabric softener sheet, and use it only once.
Exhaust vent not the correct length. Check that the exhaust vent is not too long or has too many turns. Long venting will increase drying times. Make sure vent is not crushed or kinked. See Installation Instructions.
Exhaust vent diameter not the correct size. Use 4″ (102 mm) diameter vent material.
Dryer located in a room with temperature below 45ºF (7ºC). Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above 45ºF (7ºC).
Dryer located in a closet without adequate opening. Closet doors must have ventilation openings at the top and bottom of the door. The front of the dryer requires a minimum of 1″ (25 mm) of airspace and, for most installations, the rear of the dryer requires 5″ (127 mm). See Installation Instructions.
Dryer will not run Door not closed completely. Make sure the dryer door is closed completely.
PUSH to START knob not pressed firmly or held long enough. Press and hold the PUSH to START knob until you hear the dryer drum moving.
Household fuse is blown or circuit breaker has tripped. Electric dryers use 2 household fuses or circuit breakers. The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Replace both fuses or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call an electrician.
Incorrect power supply. Electric dryers require 240 volt power supply. Check with a qualified electrician.
Wrong type of fuse. Use a time-delay fuse.
Unusual sounds Dryer had a period of non-use. If the dryer hasn’t been used for awhile, there may be a thumping sound during the first few minutes of operation.
A coin, button, or paper clip is caught between the drum and front or rear of the dryer. Check the front and rear edges of the drum for small objects. Clean out pockets before laundering.
It is a gas dryer. The gas valve clicking is a normal operating sound.
The four legs are not installed, or the dryer is not level front to back and side to side. The dryer may vibrate if not properly installed. See Installation Instructions.
Clothing knotted or balled up. When balled up, the load will bounce, causing the dryer to vibrate. Separate the load items and restart the dryer.
No heat Household fuse is blown or circuit breaker has tripped. The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Electric dryers use 2 household fuses or circuit breakers. Replace both fuses or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call an electrician.
Supply line valve not open. For gas dryers, make sure the supply line valve is open.
Incorrect power supply. Electric dryers require 240 volt power supply. Check with a qualified electrician.
If you experience Possible Causes Solution
Cycle time too short Automatic cycle ending early. 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 ACCUDRY™/Automatic Dry cycles.

Increasing or decreasing the Dry Level setting will change the amount of drying time in a cycle.

Lint on load Lint screen clogged. Lint screen should be cleaned before each load.
Stains on load or drum Dryer fabric softener not properly used. 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.

Loads are wrinkled Load not removed from dryer at the end of the cycle. Select Wrinkle Shield™ feature to tumble the load without heat to avoid wrinkling.
Dryer tightly packed. Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely reduce wrinkles from forming.
Odors You have recently been painting, staining, or varnishing in the area where your dryer is located. If so, ventilate the area. When the odors or fumes are gone from the area, rewash and dry the clothing.
The electric dryer is being used for the first time. The new electric heating element may have an odor. The odor will be gone after the first cycle.
Load is too hot Laundry items removed from the dryer before the end of the 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.
A high temperature cycle was used, or a separate temperature control was set on High. 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.
