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.

How long does it take in a full cycle of wash to dry


Depends on several things. How big the drum is eg 6 kg or 7kg .the spin speed... The material ie. cotton drys faster than woollen items.is it a washer dryer or do you have a separate dryer.normal full load 6kg on a 1200 rpm spin of mixed fibres takes 1 hours 30 mins at 40 c then the dry time can take roughly 1 hour to 90 mins.

Thor washer/dryer combo not drying properly. What is capacity of machine?


Whilst 'combos' will 'wash' a full load of clothes, they are not so good at 'drying' a full load. Since there must be a 'tumbling space' inside of the drum, into which the clothes can fall during the drying cycle.
In a 'nutshell' one 'wash load' equals 'two drying loads',
That's the price you pay for having a space saving 'combo' machine instead of having a 'washing AND a drying machine.
Add to that the fact that most 'combos' are 'condenser driers', as opposed to 'free flow outlet driers',
.
The consequence is that it takes far longer to 'wash and dry' a load of clothes in a 'combi' as oppose to two separate machines

My Bosch dryer never seems to get very warm.It's an Axxis. I've only washed about 10 loads. It seems to take a long time, and when I take the clothes out, they are cool to the touch. Even when I touch the...


Hi,

There are a few possibilities here:

1. Washer/dryers generally take longer to dry clothes than a stand-alone dryer so if you previously had a stand-alone and are now using a combi, this could be the reason.
2. There are usually at least 2 heat settings on a dryer, so maybe you have it on a cool setting?
3. The last part of a drying cycle (5-10 minutes) is usually cool - even when on a high setting. This helps to reduce creasing and cools metal parts such as zips and buckles for saftey. This could explain why everything feels cool when you remove the clothes.

It's possible your old dryer didn't have the cool final setting and/or it was higher power than your new Bosch and therefore dried the clothes quicker.

If your new machine is taking an eternity and your clothes still aren't properly dry, then there may be a fault with your dryer thermostat which is switching the heating coil/element off at too low a temperature. However, I suspect your problem is related to information I've written above.

It would help to know whether you have an Axxis washer/dryer or just a dryer. If the information above doesn't help you to solve your problem, please post back with details of your machine, including the model number, if possible.

Regards,
BElectric.
