Abstract (en)

A laundry dryer (100) includes a rotary drum (5) that accommodates laundry; a heating unit (32) that heats circulating air supplied into the rotary drum (5); an air supplying fan (12) for supplying the circulating air into the rotary drum (5); and a motor that drives the air supplying fan (12). The laundry dryer (100) also includes a dehumidification unit (30) that condenses and separates moisture from the circulating air which is discharged from the rotary drum (5); a steam generator (85) that generates steam; and a steam supplying port (89) that supplies the steam into the rotary drum (5). A control unit (48) is configured to perform an air supplying process in which the motor is operated to supply the circulating air into the rotary drum (5) between a steaming process in which the steam generator (85) is operated to supply the steam into the rotary drum (5) and a drying process in which the heating unit (32) and the dehumidification unit (30) are operated to dry the laundry inside the rotary drum (5).
