Is there too much laundry for drying ? (Long drying time)

 

 

Cause

  - 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 9kg which

     is lower than that of the washing machine.

  - Humidity sensor will not work appropriately if you dry excessive amount of laundry. This may not

     complete drying.

 

Troubleshooting

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

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

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

 

※ Before drying, spin the laundry first.

     Otherwise drying will take longer or this may cause failures.
