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


  • 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.



  • 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.

  • Drying time based on the amount of laundry


27 inch  Vented dryer



Drying 10kg


Drying 6kg

Drying 3kg
