Possible Solutions

Difference between Auto Dry and Timed Dry:

Timed Dry

With Timed Dry, the washer/dryer runs the amount of time set. If you set Timed Dry for 3 hours, it will run for 3 hours. This sometimes results in shrinkage, wrinkling, and static due to over-drying. Use Timed Dry for the occasional damp load that needs a little more drying time.

Auto Dry

During Automatic Cycles, drying air temperature and moisture level are sensed in the load. This sensing occurs throughout the drying cycle and the dryer shuts off when the load reaches the selected dryness.
