Sometimes you may need to stop the drying course during the operation because of sudden appointments or plans. It is not recommended to stop a cycle during operation, and unless you absolutely must, it is better to let the cycle run its course to the end.

If you need to stop your drying cycle during operation, you can do so by pressing the power icon Power button. This will stop the cycle and power off the machine. Once the cycle stops and the machine powers off, the inside of the dryer will be extremely hot. Please be extra careful when touching the door and removing clothes (especially clothes with metal pieces, such as zippers).

If you have a Washer/Dryer Combo, it will not stop immediately due to safety reasons. A message saying 'HOT' will appear on your display panel and the cooling pan will be operated until the dryer temperature is below 50 degrees Celcius. Once the temperature in below 50 degrees Celcius, the machine will power off auomatically.

If your dryer has the Door Lock function, the door will lock automatically when the cycle stops and the machine powers off. In this case, you will need to power on the machine again to open the door.

Please be advised, that if you end the drying cycle early, the drying result may not be satisfactory and you clothes can still be damp.
