|On sensor dry cycles, slight dampness after the cycle is completed is normal. This is because the dryer is designed for optimum fabric care, and will therefore not over dry clothing. Heated dry cycles are the most damaging to the clothing. The unit is designed to limit this damage by sensing humidity levels in the machine and shutting off prior to complete dryness. Dry level options can be selected for each individual user's needs. These include [less dry], [normal], and [more dry]. The [more dry] setting should be selected to completely dry the clothing with no dampness. The [normal] dry level will leave the clothing slightly damp. The [less dry] level (for more delicate types of clothing) will leave clothes damp enough to be hung up and air-dried. The different cycles on the unit are preset to a specific dry level, but some cycles can be adjusted. Some models have additional dry levels. Not all dry levels are available on every sensor dry cycle. Please check the following steps to troubleshoot dampness beyond the information provided above.|
|Were the controls set correctly based on the load size and fabric type?||Is the load comprised of mixed fabrics?|
|Different load sizes and fabric types will require different settings for optimum performance. For example, heavy fabrics such as jeans, thick corduroys, etc. will require longer dry times than lighter weight fabrics such as light cottons. Choose the proper cycle and dry level for each load.||When mixing fabric types, some will dry faster than others will. For example, when drying t-shirts and jeans, the t-shirts will dry faster than the jeans do, because jeans will retain more moisture. When the t-shirts dry, if they brush against the sensors in the drum, the unit will think the entire load is dry and shut off.|
|Are exhaust ducts kinked or clogged?|
|If the exhaust ducts are kinked or clogged, this will restrict proper airflow that will result in the load coming out damp. Check the venting and make certain that it is not kinked and not clogged.|
|Is the lint filter cleaned before the beginning of each load?|
|The lint filter must be cleaned before each new load for optimum performance. If this is not done, lint build up on the filter screen will reduce airflow, and prevent the unit from exhausting out moisture from the drum. This will cause moisture to remain in the clothing. Always clean lint filter prior to each new load.|
|Is the load size too large?|
|Be sure not to overload the dryer. Overloading the dryer will prevent proper airflow and tumbling. This can result in some items being dry and others not or the entire load not being dried completely. It will be necessary to remove some articles of clothing and start the cycle again.|
NOTE: Always remove and clean the lint filter before a new cycle.
|Is the load size small?|
|Small load sizes will sometimes not completely dry before the dryer shuts off. This is because the items in the drum do not brush up against the sensors that are located at the front of the drum, for the unit to detect proper humidity levels in the machine. Adding a few similar items to a small load may help.|
The moisture sensors are located toward the front of the dryers drum
Is the dryer level?
|If the dryer is not level, this can prevent the clothes from touching the humidity sensor in the drum properly, which can cause the machine to shut off too early. Level the machine according to the installation requirements.|
