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 10kg and this implies that dryer has lower capacity than washing machine.

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

 

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 adequate amount of laundry (5~7kg)

 

※ Before drying, must spin the laundry first

     Otherwise, drying will take longer and this may cause defect.
