It turns out it varies according to the load and according to the setting. I have had it read four hours For the complete cycle down to two hours. The two hour cycle for washing and drying is comparable to my other machine. However, I don't have to go and take the wet laundry out and put it in the dryer.
It turns out you can also interrupt the drying cycle and pull out whatever concerns you. If you don't let the whole cycle dry your clothes will be damp.
Today I tried drying my very best clothes for 30 minutes on A low setting. They were wet. So I added another 30 minutes and they were still damp but I pulled them out and hung them.
I have a friend who's daughter had the machine prior to children and loved it. When she had children she did not love it because of the drying cycle.
There are just two of us And I don't just like it, I love it!
I forgot to mention that the machine analyzes your load of wash and the setting you have chosen and determines the washing and drying cycle accordingly. It is pretty smart. For routine, non-expensive clothing I just to wash and dry. Pretty easy!
