Using Air Only or Air/Fluff on a Dryer

Using Air Only or Air/Fluff on a Whirlpool Dryer

Most dryers are equipped with an Air Only or Air Fluff cycle.

The Air Only cycle or Air/Fluff Only does not add heat to the dryer at any time during the cycle. Expect loads dried with the Air Only cycle or Air/Fluff Only temperature to take longer to dry. Air Only cycle or Air Only temperature can be found on the control knob or button with the other temperature selections.

Air Only cycles are best used for items where no heat is desired, such as items that will shrink easily. This can also be used with a dry rack, so is convenient for sweaters or shoes. Air Only cycles work better when using a Timed Dry cycle.

To set the controls, dryers that have knobs usually have a selection on the knob to set the Air Only cycle.

For dryers with electronic controls, below is an example of what some controls may look like:
