Cleaning the dryer

Feature panel:

   • Clean with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use abrasive substances.

   • Do not spray liquid cleaning agents directly on the display of the dryer.

   • Some laundry pre-treatment soil and stain removers may damage the feature panel.

   • When using liquid cleaning agents, apply them to the cleaning cloth. Do not apply them directly to the dryer. Wipe up any spills or overspray immediately.


   • Remove any stains from the tumbler with an all-purpose cleaner.

   • Tumble old towels or rags to remove any remaining stains or cleaning substances. Stains may still be visible, but will not affect subsequent loads.

Stainless steel tumbler:

Exhaust system:

   • Check and clean the exhaust system on a yearly or regular basis to maintain optimum performance.
