DRYER CYCLE KNOB

Please note that the movement (turning) of the Dryer Cycle knob is different than the movement (turning) of the Washer Cycle knob. The dryer knob will feel "stiffer" to rotate than the washer knob due to engineering differences. This is normal operation. 

Use your Dryer Cycle knob to select available cycles on your dryer. Turn the knob to select a cycle for your laundry load. See “Dryer Cycle Guide” for detailed descriptions of cycles.

  • TIMED DRY: This cycle will run the dryer for the specified time on the control. Drying time and temperature will depend on your dryer model.
  • NORMAL and DELICATE CYCLES: These cycles sense moisture in the load or air temperature and shut off when the load reaches the selected dryness level. They give the best drying in the shortest time. Drying time will vary based on fabric type, load size, and dryness setting. 
  • AIR ONLY: This cycle will run the dryer without heat for the specified time on the control.

With the NORMAL and DELICATE cycles, you can select a different dryness level, depending on your load, by turning the knob to the desired dryness level. Selecting Very Dry or Less Dry automatically adjusts the dryness level at which the dryer will shut off. Once a dryness level is set, it cannot be changed without stopping the cycle. These automatic dry cycles give the best drying in the shortest time. Drying time varies based on fabric type, load size, and dryness setting.

NOTE: Very Dry removes more load moisture. Less Dry removes less moisture and is used for loads you may want to put on a hanger to complete drying.
