"What to Dry" cycle selections

Following are the available cycle selections:

  • Regular
  • Delicates
  • Bulky Items
  • Whites
  • Colors
  • Towels
  • Air Only

You may have to scroll up or down to see all the available cycles. 

First select a cycle from the “What to Dry” (automatic cycles) options; then select a “How to Dry” option to get the best combination cycle available for the type of items you are going to dry. You may also select the Sanitize cycle for a long, high-heat cycle which has been proven to reduce household bacteria. The Sanitize cycle overrides previous selections and cannot be modified. See “Cycle Guide” in your Use & Care Guide for cycle details. Not all cycles are available on all models.

See your Use & Care Guide if you have questions about your specific model and what type of load should be dried in these cycles.
