You can put one or two tennis balls in with them. There are also dryer "balls" that stores sell but tennis balls work too!

Hi i have samsung dryer it work fine but it doesn't dry sheets and blanket verry well??


This can be because blankets and sheets tend to absorb more water and do not dry well in a spin dryer. Check that your spin cycle on the washer is putting out enough spin to centripetal dry your blankets and sheets.

No lint on filter? Where is it all going? Checked exhaust vent bought a vacuum attachment and there is no lint. Twice and sometimes triple the drying time! Help!


Instructions
  1. Dryer Does Not Run
    • 1 Close the door firmly. The dryer will not operate if the door is not completely closed.
    • 2 Press the "Start" button firmly or push the knob in to start the dryer.
    • 3 Turn the dial past the "Off" position and away from "Wrinkle Prevent." The dryer will not start in the "Off" or "Wrinkle Prevent" position.
    Long Drying Times
    • 4 Remove the lint screen. Clean it and replace it.
    • 5 Check the temperature of the room. The dryer will not operate properly in temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • 6 Inspect the area around the dryer. It requires at least 1-inch clearance on the front and sides of the dryer. A 5-inch clearance is needed on the back of the dryer. Move the dryer, if needed.
    • 7 Separate large loads and do not use an air dry cycle.
    Lint, Stains and Wrinkles
    • 8 Clean the lint screen before drying each load of clothes to prevent lint buildup on clothing.
    • 9 Add fabric softener sheets before starting a drying cycle. If the sheets are added after the load has partially dried, they can leave stains on the clothing.
    • 10 Dry small loads and remove clothing as soon as the drying cycle completes to prevent wrinkling.
    Dryer is Noisy
    • 11 Check the inside of the dryer for loose change, buttons or other items. Empty the pockets on clothing before drying.
    • 12 Separate items that are knotted together and restart the load. Knotted or balled up clothing will bounce and make the dryer vibrate.
    • 13 Level the dryer. Turn the leveling legs on the front of the dryer clockwise or counter-clockwise until the dryer is level. Turning the legs clockwise will lower the dryer. Turning the legs counter-clockwise will raise the dryer.

Can I use dryer balls and/or dryer sheets in the kenmore steam dryer?


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Wool yarn
* Scissors
* Crochet hook
* Pantyhose or sock

Make the Core Ball
1.
Wrap some of the yarn around your fingers.
2. Take your fingers out of the loop you created and close the hole by pulling the yarn through it.
3. Wind yarn around the loop until you form a ball about 2 inches in circumference.
4. Cut the yarn attached to the ball using the scissors. Try to leave a little excess yarn dangling from the ball.
5. Grab the excess piece of yarn with the crochet hook and tuck it inside the ball to prevent the ball from unravelling during the felting process.
Primary Felting
6. Put the core ball into the pantyhose or sock, and tie the open end in a knot. (If you are felting more than one core ball at a time, you can separate them within the pantyhose or sock by twisting the fabric in between the balls before tying the knot.)
7. Put the pantyhose or sock containing the core ball into the washing machine with a load of laundry.
8. Remove the ball from the pantyhose or sock when the cycle is complete. It should now be slightly felted. To increase felting, simply repeat this process.
Enlarge the Ball
9. Wrap more yarn around the felted core ball to increase its size. It's all right if you make the dryer ball a little big at first, since it will shrink over time as you use it. A good initial size to make a dryer ball is around 9 inches in circumference.
10. Cut the yarn with the scissors once you have made the ball the appropriate size. Try to leave a little excess yarn dangling from the ball.
11. Tuck the excess yarn inside the ball with the crochet hook. This will prevent it from unravelling when in use.
Secondary Felting
12. Put the dryer ball into the pantyhose or sock, and tie the open end in a knot.
13.Put the pantyhose or sock into the washing machine with a load of laundry.
14. Remove the ball from the pantyhose or sock when the cycle is complete. The dryer ball should now be felted and ready for use the next time you do laundry.

When I dry sheets they ball up into a twisted wad and do not dry evenly. Do you have advice for this problem?


Lisa I find if you put sheets in with other items such as towels this can work to prevent them rolling into a ball and not drying evenly.

I can't get the ball head off my tripod. I've loosened the set screws at the base, but the head won't budge.


You can try this:
spray lubricant between ball head and base, wrap the ball head with a heavy rag( to help prevent scratches, use a pip wrench on ball head while someone else holds legs ( or also wrap legs in cloth and hold in vise). DO THIS AT OWN RISK
