Instructions for Non-Use or Storage Care:

Operate your dryer only when you are at home.

If you will be on vacation or not using your dryer for an extended period of time, you should:

  1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
  2. Clean lint screen. See “Cleaning the Lint Screen.”
  3. Turn off the water supply to the dryer (steam model only). This helps to avoid unintended flooding (due to a water pressure surge) while you are away.
  4. Remove the water hose (steam model only), if storing in a location that has a potenial for freezing temperatures.
