Long Dry Times

Possible Solutions

Long Dry Times are Normal

Remember, this is a washer. The heating element inside the washer is not as large as the one in your dryer. This is not meant to dry a large load of clothing, like jeans or towels. 

Your load could be too large to dry in the washer. Separate the load to allow it to tumble freely. Loading drum a quarter full or less will improve drying performance and cycle time. Run a high-speed spin cycle.

When using the Wash and Dry cycle, it is normal for the cycle to take 6-7 hours. This cycle is meant for a small load, when it can be run overnight, or during the day while you are at work.
