This is pretty common with lighter fabrics and is easily remedied. Put several new tennis balls in with the sheets to keep them from balling up. There are commercial products that do the same thing, but tennis balls are much less expensive.

Clothes roll into a ball on matag dryer


THE DWADDER
One of the most time-consuming uses of a dryer is drying blankets and sheets. The reason it takes so long is the blanket or sheet can be twisted into a tightwad or ball during the drying cycle. Once this happens the dryer is incapable of drying the center of the wadded blanket or sheet. The solution today is to take the blanket or sheet out of the dryer halfway through the drying cycle and unwad the bundle of sheets or blankets.
Then place the blanket or sheet back into the dryer to restart the dryer cycle over and over again until the blanket or sheet is dried. If you forget to
unwad the blanket or sheet when you get ready to make the bed, the blanket and or the sheet will be wet. In order the fix this problem the Dwadder is strapped to the sheet or blanket using a silicone cord before it is placed into the dryer. Once the dryer is started the blanket or sheet will wrap around the device allowing a space to be in the center of the blanket or sheet. With the space that is created by the
Dwadder the center of your blanket and sheet will dry faster and will not roll into a tight ball or cylinder shape. This will help save time drying your sheets and blankets. The device will also prevent wadding of your sheets and blankets so you don't have to
unwad your blankets and sheets half way between the drying cycles.
The Dwadder will save you time and money. It can save up to 30 minutes off your drying time. This will save you energy. You will save time and worry less about your blanket or sheet not being completely dried when the drying process is finished. As an added feature the HDPE plastic ball opens to allow for a dryer safe fragrance to be placed inside the ball. This will reduce the use of dryer sheets.
We would love to have you as our customer. We know that the Dwadder will save you time, money and
lower the frustration of drying laundry.

Dwadder made from HDPE plastic. The Dwadder is the first ever Dryer Device that does dry your sheets and blankets faster! The Dwadder keeps your sheets and blankets from wadding up in the dryer. This will save you Time and Money when drying. Dwadder can cut your drying time up to 30 mins or more. Two sheets or blankets can be strapped to the Dwadder at a time to keep from wadding up in the dryer.

How to Use the Dwadder
Simply pull half of your blanket or sheet out of the washer. Then pull the silicone cord to slide the blanket or sheet between the silicone cord and the Dwadder. Slide the Dwadder to the center of the sheet or blanket then put your blanket or sheet in the dryer with the Dwadder attach to your blanket or sheet. You can use both silicone cords for two small blankets or sheets just don't place 2 blankets or sheet on top of each other or it will take longer to dry.

Electric drier takes 2 to 3 cycles to dry one normal size load


Have you tried cleaning the actual inside of the drier?
When you use drier sheets the wax on the sheets melts onto your clothes and makes them soft, but the wax often gets stuck in the holes of the drier making it incapable of drying the clothes in one load. Try scrubbing the inside of your drier with some hot water.

Sheets wind together in a damp ball


I have a different model Bosch dryer, but I have the same problem.

I've found that the flat sheets dry okay if you have them in with other things (like pillowcases and t-shirts). I learned long ago though that you can't put those things in with deep fitted sheets; the little stuff winds up caught in the corners in damp wrinkly wads.

So I dry the fitted sheet separately, and throw in a couple of clean tennis balls. They're noisy, but harmless, and they keep the sheet from balling up.

What is the capaity of 2005 Kenmore Elite Washer and Dryer, models 110?


Starting in early 2002, the capacity sizes were changed around a little bit. A normal sized washer now all have the same sized tubs (pretty much) in the 110 series (Whirlpool Manufactured) washers. The capacity is now rated somewhat by the agitator action the washer comes with. Depending on the type of agitator you have, will determine the capacity. King size capacity means you have a pretty good capacity (size wise) than others. You have normal capacity, large capacity, super capacity, king capacity, and I even think they have canyon (yes canyon) capacity. Capacity sizes dont really mean to much though. In order for you clothes to get clean, the must have room in the tub to move. The must be able to float up, then get pulled down by agitator action. That should determine the size of what goes in the washer. Always use same type clothing when doing laundry (i.e. towels with towels, sheets with sheets, etc, this will keep the load balanced better). Watch what you load, comforters are ok (per manufactures ok) but I do not tlike the idea unless its a front loader, and only by itself. Let me know if this helps you out any.
