  - The volume of laundry decreases as clothes gets wet in washing machine;

     conversely, the volume of laundry increases as clothes are dried in the dryer.

     The maximum volume of dryer is 10kg and this implies that dryer has lower capacity than washing machine.

  - Humidity sensor will not work properly if you dry excessive amounts of laundry. Laundry may not be completely dried.



  - Put appropriate amount of laundry to meet the dryer capacity.

     (If laundry exceeds or reaches the maximum capacity, divide the laundry into two).

  - Dry adequate amount of laundry (5~7kg)
