Solution

a qualified electrician.

• Separate heavy items from lightweight
items. Larger and heavier items take
longer to dry. Light items in a load with
heavy items can fool the sensor because
the light items dry faster.
• Heavy fabrics take longer to dry because
they tend to retain more moisture. To help
reduce and maintain more consistent
drying times for large and heavy fabrics,
separate these items into smaller loads of
a consistent size.
• Use the appropriate control settings for
the type of load you are drying. Some
loads may require an adjustment of the
dry level setting for proper drying.
• Remove the lint from the lint filter before
every cycle. With the lint removed, hold
the lint filter up to a light to see if it is dirty
or clogged. With some loads that produce
high amounts of lint, such as new bath
towels, it may be necessary to pause the
cycle and clean the filter during the cycle.
