Wrinkled Clothing​ - HybridCare Dryer

 

Possible Solutions

What Cycle Was Used?

Depending on whether you selected an Auto or Timed Dry cycle, try using the Wrinkle Shield setting to help avoid wrinkling of clothing after the cycle is completed.

Were clothes left in the dryer or washer?

Remove the load as soon as the dryer cycle ends. If the load sits for too long after the end of the cycle, wrinkles can set into the fabrics.

It is also important to promptly remove loads from the washer to avoid the same problem.

Was a large load or mixed fabric load being washed?

Overloading the dryer can cause wrinkling, too. A crowded dryer keeps load items from tumbling freely, which slows drying and increases wrinkling. 

Mixing fabric types also increases wrinkling. Lightweight synthetics and blends dry faster and can overdry and become wrinkled, while the 100% cotton items continue to dry. Dry similar fabric types together to reduce wrinkling. 

Check clothing fabric care labels for recommended drying temperatures. Temperatures too high for the fabric may cause overdrying, which will result in wrinkling.

Proper Loading of Dryer:

Place laundry in the dryer. Do not tightly pack the dryer. Clothes should be able to move freely.

For best drying and wrinkle results, untangle items from the washer and separately add them into the dryer.  Items going into the dryer twisted or tangled will take longer to dry and are more likely to come out of the dryer wrinkled.

Tie strings, belts, sashes or other loose / strappy items prior to drying or place in an open mesh bag to prevent tangling and wrinkling of the load.  Loose strings may tangle with other items in the dryer load.

For best results, follow the wet load size recommendations noted for each cycle on cycle guide in manuals, select manuals only.
