My breadmaker has been in retirement for a while but now I've resurrected it and I'm having the same problem I used to: the bread comes out a bit damp at the bottom. Am I leaving it in there too long so it starts to steam? Is it best to take it out as soon as it's done or what?

I think the directions on mine say to get it out within 5 -10 minuted of end of cook time.
The machine is still hot so it would make sense that leaving it in could ruin your bread

That does make sense. Because it takes so long (almost 4 hours on wholemeal setting) I tend to put it on before I leave for work, so it's been sitting there a few hours when I take it out.

Most likely, your machine has a timer. If so, set it for it to be done around the time you get home. I know if I don't take it out immediately, mine gets a bit soggy on the bottom from the steam.
