Sometimes a drying cycle will last longer than normally expected.
Drying times will vary depending on the size of the load, the type of fabrics mixed in the cycle, the wetness of the clothes, and the condition of the lint filter and door seal.
More often than not, the longer drying time comes down to the volume of items placed into the dryer to be well in excess of the weighted rating of the unit, which will inevitably lead to unsatisfactory results.
To overcome this, it is suggested that a lighter load is placed in the dryer to not only ensure that clothes are satisfactorily dried within a shorter amount of time but to also save on energy consumption.
Should the drying cycle still be longer than expected when drying less laundry, then please try the following steps:
- Clean the lint filter - when this is clogged, airflow will be restricted and therefore result in lengthier drying times
- Ensure that the vent hose is not squashed - if you have a vented dryer, and the hose is partially squashed, drying efficiency will be reduced, resulting in longer drying times and higher energy consumption
- Select a different drying program more specific to the nature of the load
- Assess the state of the door seal - the door seal is designed to keep cooler air from entering the drum and maintain the temperature inside to ensure that clothes dry efficiently.
