Using Sensor Dry to Prevent Heat Damage to Laundry (DV45K6500)

Sensor Dry cycles are the group of cycles on the dial that uses the moisture sensor in the drum to determine when the laundry is dry. Using Sensor dry will prevent fabrics from being over-dried. Over-drying is harsh on fabrics and will cause them to wear out faster than they would otherwise.

Selecting the Cycle

  1. Press POWER to turn the dryer on.   

    Normal is the default drying cycle.

  2. Press to select a desired cycle in the left-most panel. When a cycle is selected, the cycle indicator lights up. The dryer senses the internal humidity that will be applied to the drying time. This category includes: Normal, Heavy Duty, Delicates, Active Wear, Bedding, and Perm Press. See the following table for reference.  

    Cycle Description
    Normal For most fabrics including cottons and linens. If Normal is selected, the Eco Dry function is enabled by default.
    Heavy Duty For drying items made out of heavy fabrics, such as jeans, corduroys, or work clothes, with high temperature heat.
    Delicates For heat-sensitive items at a low drying temperature
    Air Fluff Tumbles the load in room temperature air.
    Active Wear For exercise wear and outdoor wear such as sports jerseys, training pants, water-repellent jackets, and other performance clothing. 
    Thick fabrics like a zipper or velcro closure of a jacket, or training socks may not be completely dried.
    Bedding For bulky items such as blankets, sheets, and comforters.
    Perm Press Dry wrinkle-free cottons, synthetic fabrics, knits, and permanent press fabrics automatically.
    Wool For machine washable and tumble dryable wool only. 
    Time Dry You can specify a cycle time in minutes. If Time Dry is selected, the Eco Dry function is enabled by default.
    Quick Dry A quick drying cycle running for 30 minutes.
    Refresh Use to smooth out wrinkles and reduce odors in loads of one to four items. With this cycle selected, a small amount of water is sprayed into the dryer drum after several minutes of tumbling with heat. Confirm that the laundry load is dry.
    Wrinkle Away For best results, load 2-3 items at once. You can extend the drying time by a minimum of 20 minutes, depending on the item type or load. Confirm that the laundry load is dry.
    Steam Sanitize Use to sanitize items by applying steam and high-temperature heat to the fabric. This cycle can make items soft and reduce smells. Confirm that the laundry load is wet or partially wet.
  3. Press START/PAUSE to start.
