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?

LG Electric dryer keeps blowing thermostat, vent is OK


sure..this is actually a back pressure issue...when you used the twisty flexible hose, there is less reverse back pressure..

so, with the thermal mass from a 90 degree turn, it's most likely causing a heated air back flash, making the thermostat work harder, shortening it's life..

you might want to consider putting an inline fan, past the 90 degree turn(internal to the vent pipe) and let that exhaust the air at that point, instead of allowing thermal convection to be the sole propeller for this setup.

Dryer not heating.


First clean out the exhaust vent tubing entirely and then try it. It may heat up very hot if thoroughly cleaned out. A moister sensor detects any lint build up and put the burner into a check mode that prevents home fires in the exhaust vents

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.

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!

My dryer dosen't dry my clothes


Check the exhaust tube for obstructions. If this is a gas dryer it needs airflow coming and going through that tube. This is always the cheapest, easiest first step.

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.

Kenmore Elite HE4-lots of heat, clothes not drying


Poor drying problems with dryers generally are attributed to clogged ducting. You have probably heard this before, but the first (and least expensive) fix for any dryer with long dry times is to check the air movement. As well know, dryers require good air flow to ensure proper drying. Now, when you said the air movement is strong, were you checking it at the air vent exhaust outside, or were you checking on the back of the dryer? An easy way to tell if there's a clog in the ducting, or a clog in the dryer is to run one load with the dryer vent disconnected from the back of the machine. Only run one load like this. Not a good idea to blow hot moist air into an enclosed area of your home over a period of time because it can cause mildew problems. If the dryer blows freely and your clothes dry faster, you know you need to check the ducting from where it connects to the wall to where it ends at the exhaust vent. Often it is not enough to just clean the lint trap and the outside vent. You need to check what's in between them as well. Mice and birds are notorious for building nests in dryer vents and clogging them up. Now...if the dryer is blowing poorly at the exhaust port on the back of the dryer, you will need to remove the door kick panel under the door and remove the vent duct housing to get to the blower fan. Make sure you unplug the dryer before attempting this. There are live voltages present even with the dryer turned off. Lint can get trapped in vent housing and restrict the movement of the fan, which, in turn, will cause poor air movement and longer dry times. Last of all, take a temperature reading at the exhaust port on the back of the dryer. A good temperature reading is roughly 140 degrees F. If the temperature is too low, you may have an operating thermostat or high limit thermostat malfunctioning. Check your vent ducting, first and let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.
