I
Shrinking
Items are overdried
Slow drying
Exhaust duct or outside
exhaust
hood is clogged
Proper electrical
supply is
used
Fabric type and quality is
suitable for drying
There is a large amount of
moisture
in the load to be
dried
Cold rinse water is used
Room air temperature
is
below 45°F (7°C)
Remove
items while there is still a trace
of moisture.
Some items should be
removed
while damp, then shaped and
air dried.
Some knits are stretched
during manufac-
turing. Washing
and drying returns them
to the original size. This is normal. Check
quality of garment
before buying. Follow
fabric care label directions
carefully.
Some items hold more moisture than
others (cottons more than polyester).
They take longer to dry. Full loads take
longer to dry than small loads of the same
fabric.
A load rinsed in cold water will take
slightly longer to dry than a warm one.
Cold rinses, however,
help save energy
and reduce wrinkling
more than warm
rinses do.
Install dryer in a room where the air
temperature
is warmer than 45°F (7°C).
Cold air increases
drying time and may
cause wrinkles
not to be removed.
Dryer is exhausted
according
to Installation
Instructions
Lint screen is full
Install and exhaust
your dryer according
to the Installation
Instructions
provided.
Clean lint screen before or after
each use.
Clean if needed
Properly connect the dryer to a grounded
electrical
circuit that meets the electrical
requirements
stated in the Installation
Instructions.
Static
electricity
Load is overdried
Fabric softener
is used
Synthetics,
synthetic
blends,
permanent
press and knits are
in load
Remove
items while there is still a trace
of moisture.
Use a fabric softener and follow package
directions
carefully.
Synthetics,
synthetic
blends, permanent
press and knits build up static electricity.
Use a fabric softener
and be careful not
to overdry the load.
