  • Always follow instructions for proper use and preventive maintenance - these are usually found in the operational manual that came with the appliance.

I have a performance problem with my WD440 washer/dryer. All my whites are coming out very grey even after trying whitening products. Any suggestions on how I can improve its performance


The machine itself may be dirty and this consequently is effecting your wash result. Try running the machine on its hottest cycle empty except for a couple of tablespoons of baby bottle sterilising solution or half a cup of soda crystals, this should purge the drum and hoses. There could be a problem with the heating element, whilst its on the hot wash (after about 20mins) just touch the door glass and check it is heating. I run the maintenance wash in my machine every month and this helps performance and also stops bad smells in the washer. If you are having a specific problem with stains on white loads try good old fashion napisan, a couple of tablespoons along with your usual detergent normally works wonders.let me know if this helps

taken to long to dry


IF ELECTRIC

Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.


1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

IF GAS

HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
