Suggested Settings & Tips
Not too hot - Medium Temp
Drying a little lower and a little slower reduces wrinkles and wear. The added tumbling time helps relax the fibers and soften naturally.
Before tossing that wad of wet linens in the dryer, take a moment to separate the items. Smooth out suspicious-looking wrinkles. You're helping future-you, minimizing the need for ironing.
High temps will set hard wrinkles, shortens the life of elastic in fitted sheets, and can result in unwanted shrinkage.
Frequent high heat drying will make cotton fibers brittle, leading to faster wear and breakdown.
Medium Dry, not crunchy
Dry until just slight dampness remains.
Check occasionally during drying, or use the moisture sensor if equipped.
Remove from dryer promptly and fold while warm to minimize wrinkles.
