Excess fluff on clothes

I have noticed that once a wash is completed and the clothes dry that there seem to be excess fluff/fibres left on them(especially noticeable on dark garments.)
Reading through the manuel i found that you have to clean the filter at least once a month and thought that this may have been the problem,however i now check this on a weekly basis and clean it if it looks clogged up but i still finding that the clothes have fluff remaining on them.
Any help would be appreciated.

You should clean filter after every load. If dryer is getting unusually hot (cabinet), then you may have a plugged vent line. Check where vent is on the outside and see if plenty of air is coming out of it. If not it is plugged up

Excess detergent light comes on for every wash

Hi. I have had the same problem. I've taken off the top (2 screws on the sides of the top, under little caps) & I noticed that a sound deadening felt pad had come unstuck from the back of the machine and was being chewed up by the belt - this could be stopping the spin & causing imbalance, hence the excess detergent light coming on. I removed the pad completely and tested it. It now spins beautifully! However the detergent light still came on so I removed the soap dispenser unit completely (not the tray, the entire assembly which lets the water in and mixes the soap powder) and all the adjoining pipes which were completely blocked. I couldn't get the long one off going right down to the bottom but I squeezed it in an upwards motion like milking a cow (!) and got loads of grunge out. Hopefully that's fixed it.

We have a combo dryer and washer. Washer is A2444330KH. Leaves lint on cotton shirts, have cleaned the filter no help. Any ideas? David

Dryer lint not only presents a problem by cluttering up your clothes with white specks, but it can also lead to a dryer fire. While it is impossible to completely eliminate dryer lint, you can take action to drastically reduce lint and the potential problems that come along with excess dryer lint. If your clothes take more than one cycle to dry, you see no lint on the lint screen, the clothes are very hot after drying or you find excess lint on the clothes after drying, you probably have a problem with accumulation of dryer lint in the dryer vent.
Use a dryer vent cleaning brush and clean the dryer vent, or hire a professional to clean the exhaust vent behind your dryer. If your dryer vent is clogged, it will create excess dust in the dryer and on the clothes. The excess lint can eventually catch on fire given the heat load of the dryer.

Clothes not drying completely when the dryer stops

Vent needs to be cleaned from inside of dryer to where exits out of the house. Excess lint stuck to walls of vent pipe hold in moisture and will not let clothes dry.

The water is not coming out of the clothes

2 simple checks for you with this problem often when there is excess water left in your cloths after a wash its due to a reduction in the outlet (waist) so i would surgest checking the waist pipe & drainige connections for excess lint as this can reduce the amount of water getting out & leaving it in your cloths or machine.

Hope this helps

Hotpoint WD440 creases clothes badly & takes ages to dry

This sounds like excess steam in the drum. Check that the drain filter is clean as washer driers rely on cold water being taken in to cool the condenser tank during the drying cycle. If the filter is clear, the tank may be blocked with fluff. You have to open the machine a look for a big plastic tank, usually down the right hand side.

After washing cylce complete; 3-4 inches of water is left

it sounds as tho water is getting intyo machine after use. there are 2 possible causes.
inlet valve leaking. turn water off and see if this stops water accumulating. if it does, then you need to replace valve to cure.
if drain is plumbed into spigot on sink trap then every time you drain sink, some of the water goes down the drain hose.
to cure, take the drain hose up as high as possible in a swan neck

Affinity Front loader

Its normal for water to collect in the seal folds. The main thing is to dry it out completely. Take a dry cloth or sponge and try to remove excess water. Leave the door open to dry it out. You can even use a de-mould agent spray (many varieties available in the market). The main idea is to kepp the folds dry.

Hope that helps!

Not drying properly & full of fluff

maybe the system needs a complete fluff cleanout. the build up may be obstructing the hot air flow through the condensor manifold, or sticking the circ fan.

Heating, draining water(enough?) but not drying clothes, they're just HOT, so is top of machine

You have a problem with the condensing duct.  Possibly clogged with excess and lint and needs to be cleaned out.  This requires disassembly of the unit to get to it.  Not a difficult job but not easy.
