How do you dry clothes in this machine please


A fairly common problem! The official instructions are

Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.

Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press START

Dryer door opens during drying cycle, had it "repaired" but still opening - worked originally well for about 2 years - but cannot get it to stay closed for the entire drying cycle.


these newer dryers are such garbage with their thin Sheet metal. see if the door is bent by the hinges. Dropping clothes on the doors bend these newer machines. then they don't seat correctly

Shuts off during autodry cycle. stays on during timed cycle but clothes are wrinkled ans too hot at end of cycle.


if it works on auto but not on time you have a bad timer,it's not counting down,it's better to use auto anyway,when the clothes dry the dryer shuts off on it's own,this way your not using extra electricity,if your clothes dry in 30 minutes and it's on 60 minutes it will still run after the clothes are dry on auto it doesn't.if you open the door and look around the opening you'll see a tag with the model number,your missing a couple of letters on the model number.

Door will not stay latched during the drying cycle. The door kicks open at the slightest brush by drying clothes.


There are many different door latches, Most of them are 2 pices, the part on the dryer door and the reciver on the frame. Most of them come in a kit with both pices. you will need the model number to get the part numer when calling.

The dryer door will not stay closed. It will actually close but it will not stay closed therefore it stops during the cycle. It we prop something against the door it will stay closed and a full drying...


Go to www.appliancepartspros.com do a search using the model number and you will find the schematics for the dryer. Look for the cabinet parts diagram and locate the latch assembly. Look for the door latch and the door catch both parts will probably cost less than $10. There may be some minor disassembly required but not a big ordeal.

Lights stay on constantly even when not running; does not run aft


That clip is necessary as it tells the dryer when the door is open and when the door is closed. you will have to get a new door switch.

Dryer door pops open. leaves burn marks on clothes.


check to see if you have bent door hinges first, do this by opening the door all the way down and see if it is level with the floor. if it goes past level then the hinges are bent.
guess someone may have fell on the door or used it as a step.
if so, then you can take a hand towel and roll it up, then put it at the bottom of the door and close the door gently to "bend" the hinges back into place. this will aloow the door to stay closed and should also take care of the "burn" marks on your clothes.
i would guess the unit was overheating from the door not closing right allowing air to enter around the door. that will cause the unit to overheat and leave marks on your clothes.
