    WHY?!?!!?!? :hissy:


    We have a washing machine and dryer in one.. theres 2 dryer settings, high dry and low dry, then the rest like Store dry, airing, 120 minutes,60 minutes ect ect ect.

    We put it on low dry, then 60 minutes, check it, if its still damp but it on for another 60 or 30 minutes depending how damp it is.. but all the clothes ALWAYS come out seriously creased, like so creased that its hard to iron the creases out of some things :dohh:

    People have told us over and over its because its too hot, but i don't see how as its on low dry??

    Anyone know what to do? LOL

    do you use dryer balls? or bounce sheets? they might help. ballsare meant to make drying time less too so may save you money :D

    Because you leave them in too long? Or they're not meant to be tumble dried?

    Try using a tumble dryer sheet to see if it makes a difference?

    I don't leave them in too long, i usually get them out whilst they are still slightly damp then air them on the drying rack..

    and its just normal everyday tops and jeans and stuff which i thought was all ok to iron?

    May have to try some sheets then.

    Too much in

    Too much heavy stuff in one load rather than a mixed wash of heavier clothing and lighter

    Use sofener in your washes

    Old dryer

    Take out and fold as soon as you can pref when stuff is still 'warm'

    I used to have a Hotpoint washer/dryer.....I promise you, 'Low' on that was waaaaaaay hotter than 'High' on my now standalone tumble dryer.

    And it didn't help that it was a condenscing dryer, ie unvented....since we switched to a vented dryer, things are so much better.
