Question about Washing Machines
There's all sorts of ways that washer dryers can get you.
Reading between the lines, I think you've got a situation where the machine is tumbling the clothes, is getting them warm (though not terrifyingly, scaldingly hot) and is eventually succeeding in getting them dry (rather than making them sopping wet). If those things are not all true, then read no further, but post again with more details of the symptoms.
This set of symptoms can be caused by the breather being blocked.
Somewhere, there will be a wide-bore (perhaps 1" / 25mm) tube that comes up from near the bottom of the tub (on my machine at home, it is attached to the bottom of the condenser, which itself is connected to the back of the tub at the bottom) and which runs up to somewhere near the top of the cabinet where it is open to the air. It is likely to have some sort of U bend at the bottom.
Try removing this tube and seeing if there's a plug of wet lint in the bottom.
