My LG Turbodrum has the Airdry function too. Just an extended spin cycle to spin air through the laundry to help it dry. Ofcourse this goes together with horrible creasing! I've only used it for the shortest time (30 minutes) to help dry the inside of the machine. Max. on mine is 3 hours!

Oh yeah, on my mums machine you canít change it

As it runs for one hour, yeah only time Iíll ever you say if I ever have to wash my doona At home, or if I go to the laundromat and then decide to dry here and the laundromat is quite a low spin speed Iíll use that function But apart from that if I have any to spend something dry, Iíll always use my bock extractor And that runs for three minutes at 1400 rpm, and yes I donít mean three minutes power on power off I actually mean three minutes At 1400 rpm With a 25 second ramp up time, so that way it actually does do three minutes at Full speed

Is this the spin-only cycle and not part of another program?

The figures I provided above were the final spin/spin only on the specified cycles.

I meant it to be the length of the final spin on part of a cycle. But either is fine.
Original post is Miele WXI860 on Normal Cycle. 26 minutes seems a bit excessive.
Although more than half of it was just tumbling. Note this is how long it was programmed to spin, not due to an out of balance load. I am sure US energy regulations require a longer spin cycle on Normal.
I am also curious about non-US Miele washers. There is no Normal cycle but Cottons and I donít think the spin is as long. Does the new Eco 40-60 Cycle have longer spin speeds?

My LG Turbodrum's normal spin cycle is 11 minutes. My Siemens takes 13 minutes for it.
