Airing/Cool down (Cool)

When the dryer has sensed that the load is dry, it will automatically go into a ‘Cooling’ cycle. During ‘Cooling’, the drum tumbles and cool air is blown through the items. This cools the load to reduce creasing if the items are left in the dryer.

Dry progress

  • For all cycles, the display will show the phase of the cycle that is currently underway.
  • For timed cycles, the display will also show approximately how many minutes the cycle has remaining.
  • For automatic cycles, the word ‘Auto’ will appear on the screen until the cycle reaches the cool down phase, at which time the dryer will display how long the cycle has left to go.
