Water hardness
Water contains, a variable
quantity of limestone and min-
eral salts of which quantities
vary according to geographical
locations thus varying its con-
ductivity values.
Relevant variations of the con-
ductivity of the water compared
to those prefixed by the factory
could slightly influence the re-
sidual humidity of the laundry at
the end of the cycle. Your dryer
allows you to regulate the sen-
sitivity of the drying sensor
based on conductivity values of
the water.
