There is no difference in drying between medium and high setting.

The drying time seems to be the same whether the temperature switch is set on the medium or the high setting.

You only need a certain amount of heat and air to evaporate a given amount of water. If you don't notice any difference, use the medium setting. You would notice a difference with a larger load.

What is the best setting to use to dry clothes


Medium or low heat and put a few DRY,clean towels in there.
AUTO moisture sensors will do the rest.

The HIGH setting is not good for the dryer or your clothing.

Always put in a dry article to speed the process up.

Permanent press w/cool down is good.

If you use the HIGH setting,you better be **kid and waiting for the clothes to be dry!

Sorry.

Barrel isn't turning.


I believe you will find the belt is broken.
There is a motor which is supposed to turn a belt, which in turn drives the drum.
If you wish to repair ir yourself, a letter to "Fixya" could cause someone to walk you through the steps.
Be blessed.

The beep that signals load is done sounds prematurely for about a minute ,the dryer continues until load is dry then shuts off


On this dryer each of the seven automatic cycles listed on your machine perform different functions based on fabrics, load size or variables. In essence the first four settings (Heavy Duty to Delicate) relate to your desired drying temperatures of high, medium, low or extra-low respectively. The moisture level of the load is determined by the dryer's sensor system and the machine will set the drying time to an optimal level.

Whirlpool added a WRINKLE FREE feature or what one might describe as an extended intermittent tumbling time. This added cycle helps reduce wrinkling when you may not be able to unload the dryer immediately after the end of the cycle when the buzzer goes off. Starting this setting is a simple one button operation at the control panel. TheWrinkle Shield™ Plus Feature is preset to on during the permanent press cycle.

Maytag dryer modle #mdg7657bww timer dosenot advance,I intalled new timer,same results,timer works very slow in air fluf mode


Sounds like you have another bad timer or possibly a bad temperature switch if you have a selector switch for the different heat ranges high medium low and air fluff try the high heat and see what it does set the timer and use a regular clock to see if its running on time. if so there is your problem its your heat selector switch if not I would take the new timer back and get a new one and if that dosent fix it I would have a qualified service technician come look at it to rule the problem out with out seeing it in person and trying a few things will be hard to diagnose sorry for the trouble hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

My Bosch dryer never seems to get very warm.It's an Axxis. I've only washed about 10 loads. It seems to take a long time, and when I take the clothes out, they are cool to the touch. Even when I touch the...


Hi,

There are a few possibilities here:

1. Washer/dryers generally take longer to dry clothes than a stand-alone dryer so if you previously had a stand-alone and are now using a combi, this could be the reason.
2. There are usually at least 2 heat settings on a dryer, so maybe you have it on a cool setting?
3. The last part of a drying cycle (5-10 minutes) is usually cool - even when on a high setting. This helps to reduce creasing and cools metal parts such as zips and buckles for saftey. This could explain why everything feels cool when you remove the clothes.

It's possible your old dryer didn't have the cool final setting and/or it was higher power than your new Bosch and therefore dried the clothes quicker.

If your new machine is taking an eternity and your clothes still aren't properly dry, then there may be a fault with your dryer thermostat which is switching the heating coil/element off at too low a temperature. However, I suspect your problem is related to information I've written above.

It would help to know whether you have an Axxis washer/dryer or just a dryer. If the information above doesn't help you to solve your problem, please post back with details of your machine, including the model number, if possible.

Regards,
BElectric.

Dryer Heats on High all the time


I don't think it is the heating elements. You have checked out all the important stuff. Is there power coming from the controls on medium and low. It sounds like this is the problem.
