Tumble dryer's drying cycle does not end

Last updated 18/10/2019 12:12

Issue:

  • Tumble dryer's drying cycle does not end

Applies to:

  • tumble dryer

Resolution:

1. The dryer calculates needed time according to the load. 

  • The time on the display is estimated.
  • The load may be too large and too wet.
  • Try another spin cycle that matches the load and make sure the clothing is dry enough for the selected drying cycle.

2. Clean the filters and condenser

  • See the user manual for how to clean and maintain your appliance. 
  • Check the filters by holding them up to the light and see if they are porous.
  • If no water passes through the filters, clean them and check again.
  • If water still does not pass through the filters, replace them.
  • Filters and accessories are available via the Webshop.

3. Check if the ambient temperature is between 5°C and 35°C.

  • If the ambient temperature is too low or too high, the tumble dryer may not operate correctly.
  • Place the dryer in a room which has a suitable temperature.
  • If the dryer is located in a room, make sure that the temperature of the room is between 5°C and 35°C.
  • If the room temperature is not within this range, the tumble dryer may not operate correctly and will not heat up.
  • Heat the room in which the tumble dryer is situated until it reaches a suitable temperature, or move the dryer to another room which is at a suitable temperature.

4. Check whether the appliance is getting hot:

  • Firstly, clean the appliance and then start a timed cycle of at least 120 minutes with no load.
  • After one hour, open the door and check whether the drum is hot inside (with at least 20 minutes remaining on the display).
  • If the inside of the drum is hot, the heating system is working. In tumble dryers fitted with a heat pump, you can often also hear whooshing or sloshing noises from the appliance when it stops.
  • If the appliance is still not hot after an hour of the program, we recommend requesting a visit by a service engineer.
