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 symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others. rn, This is the safety alert symbol. All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.” These words mean:

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 a 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.

In the State of Massachusetts, the following installation instructions apply:

  • Installations and repairs must be performed by a qualified or licensed contractor, plumber, or gas fitter qualified or licensed by the State of Massachusetts.
  • Acceptable Shut-off Devices: Gas Cocks and Ball Valves installed for use shall be listed.
  • A flexible gas connector, when used, must not exceed 4 feet (121.9 cm).

WARNING: FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARD

Failure to follow safety warnings exactly could result in serious injury, death, or property damage.

  • Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
  • WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
  • Do not try to light any appliance.
  • Do not touch any electrical switch; do not use any phone in your building.
  • Clear the room, building, or area of all occupants.
  • Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
  • If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
  • Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer, service agency, or gas supplier.

WARNING: Gas leaks cannot always be detected by smell. Gas suppliers recommend that you use a gas detector approved by UL or CSA. For more information, contact your gas supplier. If a gas leak is detected, follow the “What to do if you smell gas” instructions.

IMPORTANT: The gas installation must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54. The dryer must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

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.

Drying Rack The Drying Rack provides a stationary drying surface for items such as sweaters and tennis shoes. See the “Additional Features” section for more information.

CHECK YOUR VENT SYSTEM FOR GOOD AIRFLOW

Good airflow

Along with the heat, dryers require good airflow 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 airflow. 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.

Maintaining good airflow

  • Clean your lint screen before each load.
  • Replace plastic or foil vent material with 4″ (102 mm) diameter heavy, rigid vent material.AMANA W11184584A Electric Dryer (2)
  • Use the shortest length of vent possible.
  • Use no more than four 90° elbows in a vent system. Each bend and curve reduces airflow.AMANA W11184584A Electric Dryer (4)
  • 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 the final product check.
  • Clear away items from the front of the dryer.

Use Sensor Cycles for better fabric care and energy savings
Use the Sensor Cycles to provide the most energy savings and enhanced fabric care from the dryer. During Sensor Cycles, drying air temperature and 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.

Use the Normal dryness level to provide optimal energy savings. With Timed Dry, the dryer runs the amount of time set and sometimes results in shrinkage, wrinkling, and static due to over-drying. Use Timed Dry for the occasional damp load that needs a little more drying time or when using the drying rack.

Eco Dry option
The Eco Dry option will default on only for the Normal cycle and is only available on that cycle. This option allows you to increase your energy savings by using a slightly lower heat level. The Eco Dry option will increase drying times by approximately 40 minutes, which will be reflected on the LED Display. If optimal time is desired, touch ECO DRY to turn off this option.

CONTROL PANEL AND FEATURES

Not all features and cycles are available on all models.

NOTE: The control panel features a sensitive surface that responds to a light touch of your finger. To ensure your selections are registered, touch the control panel with your fingertip, not your fingernail. When selecting a setting or option, simply touch the appropriate button.

  1. POWER Touch to turn the dryer on and off. Touch to stop/cancel a cycle at any time.
  2. CYCLES Touch a button for the desired drying cycle. See “Cycle Guide” for cycle details.

  4. MODIFIERS Use to select available modifiers for your dryer. Not all cycles and options are available on all models.
    • Temp When using Timed Dry/Quick Cycle, you may select
      a dry temperature based on the type of load you are drying. Use the warmest setting that is safe for the garments in the load. Follow garment label instructions.
    • Dryness You may adjust the Dryness on Sensor cycles (except for the Sanitize cycle), if desired.
      NOTE: Dryness is for use with Sensor cycles only.
    • More Time/Less Time Timed Dry Adjust Touch MORE TIME or LESS TIME with the Timed Dry/Quick cycle to increase or decrease the length of the cycle.
  5. OPTIONS Use to select available options for your dryer. Not all cycles and options are available on all models.
    • Wrinkle Prevent Option If you will be unable to remove a load immediately, touch WRINKLE PREVENT to add up to 150 minutes of periodic tumbling to help reduce wrinkling.
      NOTE: If you open the dryer door prior to the end of the Wrinkle Prevent option, the dryer will go into standby.
    • Cycle Signal Use this option to turn the signal indicating the end of a drying cycle to low, medium, high, or off. The volume you select here will also be applied to the Damp Dry Signal.
      NOTE: You may also turn off the tones that sound when a feature, setting, or option is touched. Touch and hold CYCLE SIGNAL for about 3 seconds to turn sounds too low, medium, high, or off.
    • Damp Dry Signal Touch to turn the Damp Dry Signal on or off. When selected, a series of beeps will sound when the load is damp, but not completely dry. This will allow you to take clothes out of the load that do not need to dry completely. This option is available on some cycles. The Damp Dry signal is selected as a default for the Bulky Items/Normal, Bulky Items/Wrinkle Control, and Bulky Items/Heavy Duty cycles, as a reminder to manually reposition bulky loads midway through the cycle.
      Control Lock Use this option to lock the controls of the dryer and avoid an accidental change in cycle options or preferences during a drying cycle. Touch and hold CONTROL LOCK for 3 seconds to lock or unlock the controls of the dryer. During this time, the LED Display will count down “3-2-1.” Once the controls are locked, the LED Display will display “Loc.”
      NOTE: The Control Lock function may be enabled when recovering from a power failure. To unlock the control, touch and hold the CONTROL LOCK for at least 3 seconds.
      Eco Dry Option The Eco Dry option will default on only for the Normal cycle and is only available on that cycle. This option allows you to increase your energy savings by using a slightly lower heat level. The Eco Dry option will increase drying times by approximately 40 minutes, which will be reflected on the LED Display. If optimal time is desired, touch ECO DRY to turn off this option.
  6. LED DISPLAY When you select a cycle, its default settings will light up and the Estimated Time Remaining (for Automatic Cycles) will vary depending on the cycle selection, or the actual time remaining for Timed Dry cycles (for Manual Cycles) will be displayed.

CYCLE STATUS INDICATORS

AMANA W11184584A Electric Dryer (5)

The Cycle Status Indicators show the progress of a cycle. Not all indicators are available on all models.

  • Sensing The Sensing indicator will light periodically during Sensor Cycles to indicate that the moisture sensor on the dryer is operating. This indicator will not light during Timed Cycles or options such as Wrinkle Prevent.
  • Wet The load is still wet and/or the cycle just started.
  • Damp This indicator shows that the load is partially dried and items that you may wish to hang up or iron while still damp may be removed.
  • Cool Down The dryer has finished drying with heat and is now tumbling the load without heat to cool it down.
  • Check Vent The Check Vent indicator is a feature available for Automatic cycles only. This indicator will show the status of airflow through the dryer and the dryer vent system for the dryer’s life. During the sensing phase at the beginning of the cycle, the Check Vent light will come on if a blocked vent or low airflow issue is detected. This light will stay on for the entire cycle. Should the Check Vent light illuminate, refer to the “Troubleshooting” section for potential solutions to the issue. The light will be cleared upon completion of the cycle, touching Power, or opening the door. The Check Vent light will continue to illuminate during the cycle unless the root cause is resolved.

REMEMBER: The dryer will continue to operate even while the indicator is lit, but poor airflow can impact dry times and overall performance. For more information on maintaining good airflow, see “Check Your Vent System for Good Airflow.”

 

NOTE: If there are other error issues during a cycle, the Check Vent indicator will not light up. See the “Troubleshooting” section.

End This will indicate that the selected cycle has ended and the load may be removed from the dryer. If Wrinkle Prevent has been selected, the dryer may continue to tumble the load, even if “End” is displayed.

Control Lock This will illuminate once the controls are locked.

The load is too large and heavy to dry quickly. Separate the load to tumble freely.
Fabric softener sheets are blocking the grille. The air outlet grille is just inside the door, behind the lint screen. Check that it is not blocked by a fabric softener sheet.

 

Use only one fabric softener sheet, and use it only once.

The dryer is located in a room with a temperature below 45ºF (7ºC). Proper operation of dryer cycles requires temperatures above 45ºF (7ºC).
The dryer is located in a closet. 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 the Installation Instructions.
Cycle time is too short The load may not be contacting the sensor strips on Sensor cycles. Level the dryer. See the Installation Instructions. All four dryer feet should be in firm contact with the floor.
The Sensor cycle is ending early. Change the dryness level setting on Sensor Cycles. Increasing or decreasing the dryness level will change the amount of drying time in a cycle.
Lint on load The lint screen is clogged with lint. Clean the lint screen before each load.
Stains on load Improper use of fabric softener. Add dryer fabric softener sheets at the beginning of the cycle. Fabric softener sheets added to a partially dried load can stain your garments.
Stains on drum Loose dyes in clothes. Drum stains are caused by dyes in clothing (usually blue jeans). These will not transfer to other clothing.
Loads are wrinkled The load was not removed from the dryer at the end of the cycle. NOTE: Refer to garment care label instructions. Dry-clean-only garments are not recommended.
The dryer was tightly packed. Dry smaller loads that can tumble freely. Results may also vary depending on fabric type.
Odors Recent painting, staining or varnishing in the area where your dryer is located. 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 too hot Load removed before cooldown portion of cycle complete. Allow the dryer to complete the cooldown portion of the cycle before removing the load.
Using a Timed Dry cycle with a high-temperature setting. Select a Sensor cycle with a lower heat setting to avoid overdrying the load.
