Items fell off the rack when using ‘Rack Dry’ or ‘Wool’ cycles (some models only) Ensure the rack is installed correctly refer to ‘Sorting and loading’ or ‘Drying rack’ in your User Guide, replace garments that may have fallen from it.
Environmental conditions may be affecting dryer operation In particularly cold conditions, the room temperature may be too cold for the dryer to run efficiently.
