Is it taking an excessively long time to dry or just shutting off before they are dry but not running for a very long time?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It runs the full cycle (not shutting off in a short amount of time) but clothes are slightly damp after drying even on the hottest setting
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago
  1. Does it do this even on a Timed Dry cycle or only on Auto cycles?
  2. May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information? The model tag should be around the opening where the clothes are loaded.
