How to use auto dry/time dry on your HybridCare electric dryer

Auto dry cycle

  • Use Automatic Cycles for better fabric care and energy savings
  • The dryer senses moisture in the load or air temperature and shuts off when the load reaches the selected dryness level.
  • Use the NORMAL dryness level to provide optimal energy savings.

Some Auto Dry cycles have the Wrinkle Shield™ feature (on some models), which will periodically tumble the load at the end of the cycle to keep wrinkles from setting. The occasional tumbling will continue for 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the model.  

Timed dry cycle

  • With Timed Dry, selecting the longest drying time may be over drying your loads and contributing to wrinkling. The dryer runs the amount of time set. Use Automatic Dry or Accudry™ cycles for best drying results. Use Timed Dry for the occasional damp load that needs a little more drying time.
  • The Wrinkle Shield™ feature (on some models) is not available on Timed Dry cycles. If you are wanting to use the Wrinkle Shield™ feature, choose an automatic cycle.

See your Use and Care Guide for further information on using Wrinkle Shield™.
