How to check Your dryer's dryness Level, wrinkle shield, and/or static reduce

Did you verify what dryness level and heat settings you were using?

There is a variety of selections to choose from when selecting your dryness level and/or heat settings. See the Cycle Guide in your Use and Care Guide for more details on which is best for the items you are drying.

If you would like to download or view product literature for your appliance, please visit our Manuals and Literature page.

Were you using the Wrinkle Shield option?

If you will be unable to remove a load immediately, touch Wrinkle Shield™ to add up to 150 minutes of periodic tumbling to help reduce wrinkling. You may select the “+ Steam” setting (on some models) to add a short steam cycle after 60 minutes to help smooth out wrinkles.

Were you using the Static Reduce option?

Touch to add the Static Reduce option to selected Automatic cycles. The dryer will automatically tumble, pause, and introduce a small amount of moisture into the load to help reduce static. This option adds approximately 8 minutes to the total cycle time.
