and allow the heat to disperse.
Finely adjust the dryness level – this extends the drying
time but does not increase the temperature. Your laundry
will become drier.
Select a programme with a longer drying time or increase
the drying level. This does not increase the temperature.
Select a time programme for extended drying of laundry
that is still damp.
If you have exceeded the maximum load for
the programme, the laundry may not be dried correctly.
Clean the moisture sensor in the drum. A fine layer of
limescale may adversely affect the performance of
the sensors and your washing will not dry properly.
Drying has been interrupted as a result of a power cut,
because the condensate container is full or because
the maximum drying time has been exceeded.
