Checking Dryness Level, Wrinkle Shield, and/or Static Reduce

Checking Dryness Level, Wrinkle Shield, and/or Static Reduce on my  Whirlpool Dryer

Did you verify what dryness level and heat settings you were using?

There are various selections to choose from when selecting your dryness level and/or heat settings. See the Cycle Guide in your Owner's Manual for more details on which is best for the items you are drying.

Were you using the Wrinkle Shield™ option?

If you cannot remove a load immediately, touch Wrinkle Shield™ to add up to 150 minutes of periodic tumbling to help reduce wrinkling. You may select the “+ Steam” setting (on some models) to add a short steam cycle after 60 minutes to help smooth out wrinkles.

Were you using the Static Reduce option (on some models)?

Touch to add the Static Reduce option to selected Automatic cycles. The dryer will automatically tumble and introduce a small amount of moisture into the load to help reduce static. This option adds approximately 8 minutes to the total cycle time.

NOTE: The Static Reduce option is intended for standard size loads, using this option with a smaller load size may result in slightly damp loads.
