3135 Dryer Broke

I have had the 3135 washer/dryer about a year and a half and after moving house recently the drying part of the machine has stopped working. Everything works as normal when you set the program but the dryer does not get hot, which makes me think some heating element somewhere has popped - can any body suggest what might have gone wrong where and how to fix it. Regards Ross

Re: 3135 Dryer Broke

If you remove the top there is a thermal fuse on the dryer heater duct, it appears this has blown, on some versions this is resettable, you will see a small button on a thermostat, push it in if it makes a suttle clip it has reset. Regards Advisor

Re: 3135 Dryer Broke

Hi, i had a similar problem with mine.

I had a guy come and look at it and it turned out to be the plastic air duct behind the drum was full of lint. He just used an old wire coat hanger to unclog it and it seemed fine. I've had to do it again since but did it myself this time.

Hope this helps

I have a stackable washer/dryer gas maytag. Purchased around 17 years ago. The dryer is not drying clothes. Gas is powered fine and it is heating up. The cycle seems shorter than normal

The problem with it not drying is most likely going to be a worn out blower wheel thats slipping and not moving the warm air through the clothes to dry them properly. Always a pretty good sign the blower is slipping is,if you hear a rumble noise from the dryer at start up and also that same rumbling noise when the power stops. So if you hear it at start up...wait 30 seconds and open the door and listen for the rumble noise as drum stops. also you can check where the vent exits the house and see if their is air flow when the dryer is running.

Wash machine sometimes gets stuck on rinse cycle & dryer not dry

Sounds like the drain hose for the washer is too far down in the stand pipe at the wall causing a siphon effect, try raising drain hose a little. The dryer sounds like the vent line from back of dryer too wall is pinched causing an air flow obstruction. Hope this helps.

Not completing cycle

if your waste pipe is attached to the sinks waste you might find the wastepipe connection blanked off, simply unscrew and remove blank. Or your water supply maybe off.

Hoover Ultracare 1600 - Dryer not working

Check the duct work see if it is clogged up with lint.  Everything you read tells you to clean it out, but how many of us do it?  I just had the same problem with my duet dryer and when I went under the house to check, the duct was clogged up with lint and works like a charm now.

Machine fuses house RCD if a drying cycle is selected

Suggest you turn the power off, remove the top cover, diconnect the live and neutral connections to the dryer element (likely to be two of each flavour of connection if the machine has high and low dry settings). Pop a bit of insulating tape around the wire ends so you don't short anything out. Now try to put the machine through a drying cycle. If it works (albeit cold) without tripping the house power, you need a new dryer element. If the house power still trips, turn the power off again and without reconnecting the element wires, disconnect and tape the live and neutral wires from the blower motor. Again, try to run a drying cycle. If this stops the house power tripping, then it looks like a motor problem (though this would be quite unusual). If the house power still trips, you need to have a careful look at all the wiring between the main timer, the dryer timer, any hi/lo heat switch, the blower motor and the element with its associated thermostats and thermal cutouts (all located near the element on the air duct). Look in particular for chafes where wires go round corners, and where wiring crosses from the case to the suspended machinery in the middle of the machine. Pop any follow-on queries in the comments section of this question - I'll keep half an eye on it. A.

Hoover nextra 5+5 washer dryer HNWF 3135 heating broken

it is seperate heaters for wash and dry and unlikely to be connected with blocked filter tho you should check filter regularly. take top off. on manifold running across top you will see stats. one of these at least is resettable by presssing a small knob in middle and if it has gone you will hear a slight click. then check dryer manifole for build up of lint as pooir air flow can cause stat to pop. for wash heating, start by checking continuity of the wash heater located at the bottom of the tub

Washing coming out REALLY HOT even after cool spin

This might be too easy but you have definetly check that the pipes are the right way around that connect your washer or you have not accidently connected the washer to the hot water, the 3135 only has 1 connection that shuld only have cold water put into it. This would also effect it drying capability.
