Dryer may have moved into the cool-down phase of the cycle.
Doesn't dry.Check all of the above, plus...
Be sure the exhaust hood outside the home can open and close freely
Check exhaust system for lint buildup. Ducting should be inspected and cleaned annually.
Use a 4" rigid metal exhaust duct.
Do not overload. 1 wash load = 1 dryer load.
Sort heavy items from lightweight items.
Large, bulky items like blankets or comforters may require repositioning to ensure even drying.
Check that the dryer is draining properly to extract adequate water from the load.
Load may be too small to tumble properly. Add a few towels.
Is noisy.Check the load for objects such as coins, loose buttons, nails, etc. Remove promptly.
It is normal to hear the dryer gas valve or heating element cycle on and off during the drying cycle.
Be sure the dryer is leveled properly as outlined in the installation instruction. bit is normal for the dryer to hum due to the high velocity of air moving through the dryer drum and exhaust system.
Dries unevenly.Seams, pockets, and other similarly heavy areas may not be completely dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected dryness level. This is normal. Select the Very Dry setting if desired.
If one heavy item is dried with a lightweight load, such as one towel with sheets, it is possible that the heavy item will not be completely dry when the rest of the load has reached the selected dryness level. Sort heavy items from lightweight items for best drying results.
Has an odor.Household odors from painting, varnishing, strong cleaners, etc. may enter the dryer with the surrounding room air. This is normal as the dryer draws the air from the room, heats it, pulls it through the tumbler, and exhausts it outside. When these odors linger in the air, ventilate the room completely before using the dryer.
Shuts off before load is dryDryer load is too small. Add more items or a few towels and restart the cycle. Dryer load is too large. Remove some items and restart the dryer.
Lint on clothesMake sure the lint filter is cleaned before every load. With some loads that produce high amounts of lint, it may be necessary to clean the filter during the cycle.
Some fabrics are lint producers (for example, a fuzzy white cotton towel) band they should be dried separately from clothes that are lint trappers (for example, a pair of lack linen pants.)
Divide larger loads into smaller loads for drying.
Check pockets thoroughly before washing and drying clothes.
Garments still wrinkled after Wrinkle-CareSmall loads of 1 to 4 items work best.
Load fewer garments. Load similar-type garments.
Odors remain in clothing after Refresh.Fabrics containing strong odors should be washed in a normal cycle.
Water drips from nozzle when Steam-Care startsThis is steam condensation. The dripping water will stop after a short time.
Sprayed water is not visible during Steam-CareSprayed water is difficult to see when the door is closed.
