Hi, my name is Mike and I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be very glad to help you today. The iron symbol is going to leave the clothes a little damp and they will require ironing. If you set it to the hanger symbol and remove the clothes immediately after the drying cycle you will not need to iron.

JACUSTOMER-npkdgxm2- :

Your reply does not address my problem of over creasing that can not be removed. On the iron cycle the clothes are totally dry and permanently creased, they do not come out damp.

canuck the pro :

On the iron setting the clothes should come out just slightly damp and when they are set to the hanger symbol they are dried a little further and should not require ironing at that point. If the clothes are left in the dryer too long after the cycle ends they will get wrinkled on any setting.
