Tip & How-To about Miscellaneous
For those of you who own, or a going to purchase a washer dryer combi machine, most new machines incorporate a "Tub Clean" cycle, or as I call it a ROF (Rinse Out Fluff) cycle.
During the drying cycle, most washer dryers don't incorporate a fluff filter like tumble dryers have, when washer dryers carry out the drying cycle, fluff accumulates around the rubber door seal. It's advised that either after the drying cycle, or better yet before the following wash cycle, you carry out a ROF cycle, to allow the machine to clear fluff residues from the drum & door seal.
If it's a modern machine, they will have their own ROF cycle built into the machine's programming, if it's an older machine, simply select a rinse & spin dry cycle & allow it to complete.
Dependant on the age of your washer dryer, some have filters that require periodic attention to clean out the filter chamber, to ensure it continues to dry, some machines will either stop and warn you with an audible signal and error code, or they will not dry the load sufficiently, until the filter or pump impellor chamber are emptied of water.
The user booklets will provide information on how to maintain your machine, or how to access the ROF cycle.
Below are a couple of examples of a ROF cycle from two of my own machines.
