LOW heat.
Check that:
HIGH heat option has been selected if you are drying Cottons.
Different load types need different drying times.
Check that:
The Drying time selected was sufficient for the load.
Note: Your machine contains an out of balance spin protection device, if the out
of balance is too great the machine automatically spins at a lower speed. Check
that the load was spun correctly at the and of the wash cycle before the
machine advanced into the drying cycle, then try another rinse and spin and
repeat the drying cycle.
A 20 minute ‘Cool Tumble’ period is included at the end of the drying cycle -
Always allow the machine to complete the full drying cycle to ensure this cool
tumble period occurs.
This is normal and is not a fault - The machine may sometimes spin during the
drying cycle to improve drying efficiency.
This is normal and is not a fault - You must always return the Drying Times dial
