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?

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.
see this causes and use the common sense.God bless you If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:IgniterGas valve coilsThermal fuseIgniterModern
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.
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 coilsWatch
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 fuseOn
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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
