Question about Splendide 2100 Vented Washer-Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer exhaust not blowing out of vent tubing

My machine washes and then goes into the dryer mode fine. But the vent/exhaust doesn't seem to be working. At one point, the hot exhaust air even came out of the front where you put the detergent/softner, but not the exhaust hose. I've cleaned out the exhaust hose as much as i can without improvement, but it's only a small hose outside of the dryer. Any suggestions?

Why does the dryer blow cold air only


It probably over heated and blew the thermal protection fuse. Replace the fuse, the thermister(cycles the heater on & off), check the heater coils to see if they burned out or not and check the vent exhaust to see if a clog in the vent caused the appliance to over heat.

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Igniter Gas valve coils Thermal fuse Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too. To determine if the igniter is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one. Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.) To determine if the thermal fuse has blown out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page.

Can 3431 be converted to a regular vented dryer?


You cannot convert this model. This unit blows hot air into drum and the water is turned to steam and exhausted out through the pump to the drain. Unlike regular dryers that blow hot air into drum, creating link and just heat that blow out vent.

I have a kenmore HE2 dryer and matching washer. It is 3 years old. It works and eventually clothes do dry. It does heat up. But it doesn't heat up as hot as it used to and it takes twice as long to dry...


Make sure you check your exhaust line and where the air blows to the outside. If your exhaust vent or hose is bent or restricted it will take a very long time to dry the clothes. Sometimes the vent flap on the outside exhaust is stuck shut. Clear dryer exhaust venting is critical for proper operation. Several companies offer a vent cleaning service where they completely clean out the exhaust lines.

Doesn't dry


If you're saying that your washer doesn't spin the water out, it could simply be the pump.

If this is with your dryer, and it gets hot, but doesn't dry, the vent might be kinked or blocked. Check the large vent tube from the dryer to the wall, if unkinked, go out and check the exhaust flapper. It may be jammed, or you may see a large amount of lint in the exhaust opening.

Hoover Ecologic A857810602843 dryer is getting hot but does not seem to dry the clothes ?


Try vacuuming out all air passages including the exhaust tube going outside. Clean the lint filter in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits. Check the exhaust vent to verify good air movement out of it. Hope this helps!

Splendide 2100 vented washes clothes just fine but now when it goes into the dryer mode just roates the knob around without doing anything. This only happens in the dry mode.


This means that the washer has found something wrong and it is going to a diagnostic mode. When the knob starts going around, immediately begin counting how many times the red light blinks. Call Splendide and they can diagnose the error from the number of blinks you counted. I would recreate the problem more than once so you know that you counted right.

Gas dryer heats fine but shuts down before the drying cycle is over taking longer to dry clothes. Lint trap and exhaust tube cleaned out.


You are going to most likely need a vent cleaning. The dryer is getting too hot and shutting off because it is not exhausting good.

Dryer not drying clothes properly


Replace the vent tubing, sounds like something is stuck or it is crushed somewhere. So replace it for about 5 dollars and see if that works. It should since you disconnect the hose and it drys right away
