Drying function not working properly

The drying function on our machine isn't working properly. The programme will start however the air is cold rather than hot. It has flashed E70 up on the screen, however this code is not featured in our user guide. Any ideas what the problem could be?

Re: Drying function not working properly

If you can feel air blowing then it is not the fan, the only other things that are there are the thermostats(2) and element

Malber WD1000 wont condense the water that is fed through during the drying cycle

Since it drains properly during the wash cycle, we know the drain pump and its impeller (propeller) work, and the coin trap (you called it a filter) and hoses are not clogged. By the way, turning the rightmost knob to "4" will start the pump-out cycle, so you don't have to open that trap-door at the bottom. To condense, the machine needs COLD water (spritzing on an internal screen) during drying. Make sure your cold water hose is connected to the outside (outboard) connection on the back of the machine. As a long shot: If the gray drain hose is pushed too far down into your home's drain pipe (more than 8") there could be a "back-siphon" where dirty water siphons back into the washer. It's a long shot, but it does happen.
Lastly, the controller board (mounted at top of right side) could be bad, and not sending on-off commands to the pump during drying. During drying, the drain pump should cycle on and off constantly, every few minutes. Do you hear it running? If you remove back (about 12 Torx screws), at your lower left you will see the pump. There are only 2 wires (120 VAC) and they can be connected either way. Stick a meter on the terminals and see if power is cycling on and off. If not, the controller board is bad.
You can order one from Malber (in NYC) by calling Nancy at 516-323-5299. Tell her Mike, in Wash. D.C., says hi.

Hoover washer dryer Error Code E12 during dry programme. How can I fix?

E12 means a problem filling on dry cycle.

Unplug the appliance, take the top off and check that the plastic condenser below the fan is clear and clean.

If this is ok, the most likely fault is the triple valve isn't opening properly to feed water into the condenser.

Most recently, the dryer function is not drying

Run a cycle with the Dryer vent hose off. If the clothes come out dry, you need to have a duct cleaning company come out and vacuum out the duct.

Dryer only blowing cold air, washing cycle fine.

try flipping you breaker off and on 2 or 3 times (hard and fast) if this don't work check element, timer , thermostats and safety switch on motor 2 heavy red wires (check wiring diagram for pin numbers of safety switch)....if this switch goes bad the motor will still run but it wont let power go to element washer motor has heat overload sensor

Hotpoint BWD129 1200 spin - unwanted drying cycles

This is more a workaround than a solution. When you choose the washing programme (say "D") and push the on/off button, two lights will flash, the "door locked" and the "drying" one. Now turn the "drying programme" button until the "drying" light stops flashing (in my case, this is true when I set the drying programme to 40°C). Then start the washing mashine.

Seems like the function of the drying programme button has shifted against the settings written on the button...don't ask me why! Of course, no guarantee but works for me. Please let me know if it does for you.

Drying problems

This usually indicates that the fill valve for the drying cycle is faulty. In short you need a new cold water valve assembly. (this will fix this issue 90% of the time) Otherwise you may need a new control board.

Inside of the machine (you will have to remove the top cover from the machine) is a valve assembly attached to the cold water line. This valve assembly consists of 2 or 3 individual valve bodies . The one on the right hand side of the assembly usually controls the cold water inlet for the drying cycle(this is necessary for proper condensation drying to take place). There is a black hose which attaches this part of the valve assembly to the wash drum. With the water shut off and the power removed from the machine, remove this hose from the valve and look to see if it has a small red (usually) plastic insert. This is a restricter insert which limits the water flow into the tub. Without the insert the tub will fill with cold water in a short amount of time.

Zanussi WJD1667W not drying at all


I've got this machine, and all washer dryers tend to have two heating elements and it sounds to me that the heating element for the drying side of the machine's functions needs replacing. You could probably find a cheap element for the machine somewhere and get it fitted for a small sum.

Let me know if this rectifies your problem
