A clogged lint filter is a really common cause of longer drying times. The accumulation of lint within the filter will result in restricted air flow, which will increase the drying time. In some cases, the drying time can increase dramatically. The 'Check Filter' light will turn on before every cycle as a reminder to clean the lint filter for optimum performance.
