If your dryer is taking too long to dry the clothes or not drying clothes at all,


  • Ensure your clothes have been rinsed or spinned properly
  • If you have a ducted dryer, make sure the ducting is clean and properly vented
  • Clean the lint filter
  • If you use a condenser dryer/heat pump, ensure the condensing tank is emptied.
  • If you have a washing/drying ¬†all in one machine ensure the drain pipe is not kinked or blocked
  • Select the correct cycle to achieve the dryness required
  • Separate your clothes. Dry heavy clothes separate to light clothes
  • Bulky items such as duvet may take longer to dry
  • The load may be too small and remain undetected by drying sensors
  • Some clothes such as jeans may not be completely dry near the pocket areas due to the density of the material. You can select heavy cycle after separating your laundry
  • Load the dryer correctly and avoid over loading it
