Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly. Does it show any error codes

OK are the clothes coming out sopping wet?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No, they have just enough moisture left that you know it will be a long time in the dryer. Our old Matag would spin them twice as dry. Is there anything that I could be doing wrong or how it was set up to cause this. I understand the advancement in these machines is the "high efficency" of having less water to deal with.

You may have a failing motor capacitor, often they go bad on that unit causing that issue.
