Abstract

See full text

The present invention relates to a method for controlling a drying cycle of a laundry dryer having a laundry drum and an air stream fan for circulating drying air through said laundry drum. The method comprises the steps of: starting a drying cycle (14); performing the drying cycle (16); detecting an electric resistance and/or conductivity of the laundry during the drying cycle (16) for estimating a dryness level of the laundry; comparing the electric resistance and/or conductivity of the laundry with an end cycle condition (20; 28, 30; 36); finishing the drying cycle (16), if the end cycle condition (20; 28, 30; 36) is fulfilled. The end cycle condition (20; 28, 30; 36) depends on the rotation speed (SD) of the laundry drum and/or on the rotation speed (SF) of the air stream fan. Further, the present invention relates to a corresponding laundry dryer.
