Do I Have To Reduce Load For Drying In Washer Dryer?

Recommended Posts

Ive just bought my first washer dryer and hope to get years and years of active service from it.

the manual says to reduce the load by half when drying, which is fine,but a bit inconvenient....is this really necessary, or can I simply double the recommended drying time. i do wonder how many people actually follow this guidance!!!!

Washing clothes and drying clothes are different jobs, and the compromise required to do them inside the same machine is that up to half of the washing often needs removing before drying. The explanation for this is covered on Washerhelp's main site Washer-dryer, or separate washing machine and dryer - which is the best? Overloading a washer dryer by having too much laundry in on the drying section can cause the thermal overload cut-outs to trip, and the dryer would stop heating until an engineer visits to replace it.
