WHEN NOT USING YOUR DRYER

? You may wish to soften your laundered fabrics
or reduce the static electricity in them by using a dryer-applied fabric softener or an anti-static conditioner. We recommend you use either a fabric softener in the wash cycle, according to the manufacturers instructions for those products, or try a dryer-added product for which the manufacturer gives written assurance on the package that their product can be safely used in your dryer. Service or performance problems caused by use of these products are the responsibility of the manufacturers of those products and are not covered under the warranty to this appliance.
? Before discarding a dryer, or removing it from service, remove the dryer door to prevent children from hiding inside.
