Question about Equator EZ 3600 CEE Front Load Washer / Dryer

Drying Issue (help!)

Experts,

At the highest setting and @ the longest dry time, my clothes are still damp (not dewy). I was wondering what advice you could offer to improve the drying efficiency of the machine. I was told something that impeller might need to be cleaned inside the machine. I know a machinist who can help me. Do you know where the impeller is located?

Thanks!

Andre

It's lint stuck in the dryer that drastically lowers the efficiency.
From another site I found the solution:
 
1. UNPLUG UNIT
2, remove 4 screws top back edge of top panel and lift off panel.
3. blower will be toward the right rear of unit. To save a hassle later, take a sharp object and scrib an index mark across where the blower meets the plenum, it will help you line it up later.
4. there are four 7mm bolt-head screws holding the blower and blower motor onto the heater plenum. One of the screw is almost impossible to see, but there are 4. I used a "flex-shaft" socket to get them out. This can be a real PITA.
5. carefully lift blower motor out of plenum. You will probably need to shove the whole tub unit to the left to get clearence. IF YOU OPT TO DISCONNECT THE BLOWER WIRES MAKE A DIAGRAM OF WHERE THEY CONNECT!!
6. I usually use a thin knife to scrape each of the vanes on the blower. Then vac everything out and use your hand to check for smutz in the plenum.
7. THE FAN ONLY FITS ONE WAY ON THE PLENUM. be sure to test fit to see if all the holes line up.
8. When motor is back in place, spin the little cooling fan on top of motor to make sure it's not binding. I usually test the unit by plugging it in and starting dryer to make see it runs.
9. Put top of unit back in place.

    on page 17-18 it shows how to identify the impeller. remove the impeller, clean out the lint and return the impeller to its place. that should solve your problem. the impeller it tricky to remove, particularly the screws but once cleaned the dryer will work like new. you may find you need to clean the impeller out every yr or maybe more to keep it drying well.

NOT DRYING PROPERLY CLOTHES STILL WET AFTER 70MIN DRYING TIME CLOTHES ARE WARM DAMP


First check that the exhaust duct is clean, has no kinks and that the air flow is unrestricted. Sometimes water will condense inside the exhaust hose and not allow the damp air to flow.
I assume that the dryer works quietly, if not, then probably the blower fan needs replacing.

I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR6646BI-12 the clothes feel warm but not hot and they are still damp


The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
  1. Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
  2. If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.

  1. If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time.
Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
  1. Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)

  1. To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
  1. With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
  1. Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
Hope this works............

Whirlpool AWZ410 Washer/Dryer Washes But Will Not Dry!


I have the same problem. The half load / drying button is pushed in; the drying time set; I've reduced the load to almost nothing, but it won't dry. I've tried numerous cycles. The clothes spin, but are still damp at the end.

How would I go about checking my lid switch or fixing my clutch, if that's the problem?

Dryer is not drying clothes fully.


As long as the dryer doesn't have electronic controls, this very common symptom indicates a bad(open) heating element.
