How quickly the dryer finished this load. Synthetics programs are for special fabrics that could be damaged if they get too hot or dry.
Dryness of clothes
For dryers tested after 2012. This assessment considers what state your clothes are left in at the end of the drying cycle. Some dryers may leave clothes damp and in need of more drying. Alternatively, garments could be over-dried, meaning the dryer has been drying for longer than it had to, which is inconvenient for you and pushes up energy costs. It also increases the risk of laundry being damaged, particularly clothes made from synthetic fabrics.
A poor score indicates that some items, typically jeans, pillowcases and sheets, were left damper than other items.
