NOT DRYING ON ACCOUNT OF LOAD
Expected drying time cut short resulting in damp clothin
- Throughout the cycle, the dryer sensor detects dampness of laundry load to control drying time in
order to avoid scorching the clothing, even worse, ignite a fire.
- If the size of the laundry load is very small or light, the appliance is unable to properly detect any
moisture or gradual declining of dampness in the clothing, thus shortening the drying time to prevent
any fire hazard.
- Failure to properly maintain and care for the lint filter, meaning cleaning it before every load and
reinserting it fully in its slot, as well as neglecting to clean the venting exhaust pipe all the way to the
outside damper every so often risk causing heat to drastically rise quickly within the drum hence the
necessity to rely on highly-sensitive sensors. Sensors are designed to immediately shut down
operation should a temperature peak arise suddenly or clothing dampness is simply not registering.
DID YOU KNOW?
How to fix
- With Sensor Drying, a dryer detects dampness of laundry to control total drying time.
Drying time displayed upon starting cycle may decrease if the load is too small.
- If an excessively small load is put in the dryer under Sensor Drying mode, the machine’s sensor
will be unable to detect the load’s dampness and will therefore stop after 10 minutes.
In this case, laundry will not be fully dried. Please add to the load to dry or add time in Manual
Drying or Timed Drying to continue.
