How to dry clothes in the Godrej washing machine?

Quick Answer

If your Godrej washer does not feature a built-in heater dryer, start by placing your damp garments in the washtub and run the spin-only cycle. Once the spin cycle completes, open the washer’s door and add a few dry towels to the washtub in an even manner and repeat the spin-only cycle. Next, hang your garments to air dry completely. If your washer has a built-in dryer, simply put the clothes in and set the dryer settings according to the care label on your fabric and let it complete the drying cycle.

If you have a fully automatic washer-dryer model, it should take care of the entire process automatically, i.e., right from washing to drying, without you having to lift a finger.

Just make sure to select the right wash type so that if in case the washer has a built-in heater for drying, it does not damage the fabrics in any way.

Key Takeaways

  • Washing machines that do not feature a dryer can help to remove excess moisture from clothes with the help of the spin cycle feature. However, it does not dry the clothes completely, therefore, you may need to air dry the clothes naturally once the excess moisture is removed.
  • Adding a few dry towels will boost the drying process and reduce the drying time.
  • Make sure to load the garments evenly when using the spin-only cycle in your godrej washing machine.
  • The drying time will vary depending on the type of fabric, the weight of the clothes, and the amount of water used in washing.
  • If your washer has a built-in heater dryer, select an appropriate wash and dry cycle based on the care label on your fabric (especially if it’s a fully automatic washer).

Things to keep in mind while using the spin-only cycle to dry clothes

You might not get the same quality of results from the spin cycle as you would from the dry cycle in a dedicated clothes dryer.

However, it will help to discharge excess moisture from clothing so that the clothes dry faster.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when using the spin cycle to dry clothes in your Godrej washer:

Add dry towels

If you add dry towels to the spin cycle, they will quickly soak up the last bit of moisture from the wet clothes as they spin together.

You can either add dry towels during the initial spin-only cycle or when you repeat the cycle.

However, adding dry towels in the second cycle, i.e., running the spin-dry function a second time, ensures that excess water is absorbed from the clothes and will quicken the drying time.

If you use towels that shed a lot of lint, the lint will spread over the surface of your wet clothes.

Even the distribution of load

This is again the most important factor to consider if you are using the spin-only cycle in your washing machine.

Uneven loading of garments in the washtub will lead to excess vibration, therefore reducing the effectiveness of the spin cycle and possibly damaging your washer in the long run.

Just evenly distribute the garments around the washtub rather than throwing them in a single corner.

It will help the washer stay in balance and move smoothly through the spin-only cycle.

Avoid Overloading

Do not overload the washtub with too many clothes at the same time; instead, add a limited number of garments.

This will keep the garments from tangling in the machine and reduce excess vibration.

Also, make sure to load similar types of garments in each cycle by separating the heavy and light piles of laundry.

Spin speed settings

Use the right spin speed setting on your washing machine depending on the type of fabric you want to dry.

For regular loads, you can select the highest spin speed setting on the washer; likewise, select a low to medium spin speed for delicate garments.

However, for extremely delicate fabrics, use the lowest spin speed or simply avoid the spin cycle and air dry instead.

Manual selection

In some Godrej washer models, you will need to pause other wash programs such as wash, rinse, soak, etc. and keep the spin-only cycle active.

By doing this, when you hit the start button, it will skip all the other cycles, and your washer will only use the spin cycle.

Most modern-day washers will allow you to use the spin-only programs from the settings menu on the control panel.

Once done, remove the clothes from the washer and hang them to air dry naturally.

However, if your Godrej machine features a hot dry cycle, then simply add the damp clothes to the machine, select the proper dryer settings depending on the fabric type, and let the dryer complete the drying cycle.

How to dry clothes in the Godrej washing machine?

Step 1: Sort your clothes

Start by sorting your clothes by color, fabric type, and weight.

Make sure to separate heavy and bulky items from lighter ones.

This is an extremely important step, as it will determine how efficiently you can dry your clothes in the washer.

Step 2: Wringing by hand

It’s always a good idea to wring excess water out of your clothes by hand before putting them into the washer on a spin cycle.

It’s important that you don’t wring it too hard, as that could damage the fabric or even cause it to tear. Just a gentle wringing should suffice.

Alternatively, roll the clothes in a towel and press them to remove excess moisture.

Step 3: Place the damp garments with a dry towel

The next step is to place the damp clothes along with a dry towel in your washer’s washtub. Just make sure to spread the load out so that everything dries evenly.

Step 4: Run a Spin Cycle

Once you have placed your clothes in the washing machine, run a spin cycle to remove as much water as possible before hanging them to dry.

The spin speed will depend on the fabric type; try to select lower spin speeds for delicate fabrics and higher spin speeds for tougher or more durable fabrics.

Step 5: Hang dry

Once the spin cycle completes, hang the clothes on a clothesline or drying rack to air dry naturally. Be sure to hang clothes in a well-ventilated area, out of direct sunlight.

Step 6: Fold and store

Once the clothes are dry, fold them and store them in a clean and dry place.

Final Thoughts

If you’re using the spin-only cycle, you may need to set the machine to its highest spin speed in most cases.

Remember, the whole idea with the spin cycle is to eliminate as much water as possible from clothes before you can air dry them. The spin cycle does not completely dry your clothes, but it does help to shorten the drying time.

For combo units, you can simply use the drying cycle settings instead of using a repeated spin-only cycle.

If you have a fully automatic washer and dryer unit, the entire washing and drying process will be done automatically most of the time. However, make sure that you have selected the right wash and dry settings.
