does steam fresh really work ?

just got a DLEY1701 dryer. tried the steam fresh with two garments. they came out wet and cold. I saw water dripping around while the drum was spinning. I did not see any steam whatsoever.
Asked by: captainmike
I haven't had much luck with the Steam Fresh feature, but I only tried a couple of garments. I think the key is to have more than a few in order to not come out as damp.

Is there a "no heat" dryer setting

This is sometimes called "air dry".
Asked by: Eddd
Yes. There are settings for Ultra Low on up, and then 2 sets of special cycles, Cycle 1 & Cycle 2. Air Dry is listed as one of the options under Cycle 2.

Does the drum spin when using the drying rack?

I'd prefer if the drum didn't spin when using the drying rack it's useless energy usage. Would using the "rack dry" feature prevent the drum from spinning?
Asked by: JRangel
Yes. The "rack dry" feature just sets the time and has a heating and cooling period. The drum still spins as it would during a normal cycle. I have used it to dry tennis shoes and it works great. I imagine the impact of using the drum during this cycle has a minimal impact on the electric bill. It's the heat that is more of a concern, but these are energy efficient machines..

do i have to hook up the DLEY1701W steam fresh to a water main?

Asked by: seandonmiami
It comes with a Y adapter to hook it up where your washing machine is hooked up to. It's very simple just read your instruction. Took a whole 10 minutes to install and I'm a girl.

Why does the dryer squeek when it first starts up.

It quiets down after 3-5 minutes.
Asked by: Popsnc2
It is difficult to determine the cause of squeaking in a dryer. It would typically be related to a belt, roller, or motor. It will not be possible to determine the source of this sound without an inspection by a qualified technician. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at

model DLEY1701V does finish show fingerprints

Asked by: keit
We appreciate your interest int his electric dryer. We do not have specific information available regarding fingerprints on this device. The outside of the machine can be cleaned with warm water and a mild, nonabrasive household detergent. Immediately wipe off any spills with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use methylated spirits, solvents, or similar products. Never use steel wool or abrasive cleansers; they can damage the surface.

Can you disable the light while the door is open

My dryer is starting to smell, i feel because i cant leave the door open to my dryer due to the light being on when the door is open. Is there anyway to disable the light? Or a different way to prevent my dryer from smelling? Its not even a month old
Asked by: SkCubrinoski
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer. The unit has not been designed with a feature to deactivate the interior light. The only method to do so would be to unplug the dryer until it is needed again. It is uncertain from where such an odor would be originating. If necessary, the unit may require service to locate the source of the smell and resolve it. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at
