Clothes Take Too Long To Dry
How long a load takes to dry depends on many variables, such as size of load, garment thickness, fiber content, etc. In general, we estimate 6 bath towels (weighing approximately 5 lbs) will dry in a Maytag dryer in about 40-50 minutes, including a brief cool-down. A 12 piece permanent press load with slacks, shirts, shorts, dress, etc., (weighing approximately 5 lbs.) will dry in 30-40 minutes including "cool down". Keep in mind as the load size increases, so will the drying time.
