Re: Hot Tumble

Sounds like you've lost the coolant water flow to the condenser. Make sure the cold water supply is turned on, and the hose is neither trapped nor kinked. If that draws a blank, the most likely problem is the solenoid valve which controls the coolant flow. Unfortunately, on this machine the valve is in a cluster of three - making it a bit more expensive to replace on spec. The valve is the great lump of stuff on the other end of the threaded stub of pipe you screw your inlet hose to. It has three outlets, each controlled by a solenoid. In all likelihood, one of these solenoids has burnt out - they often do. If you're not confident with electricity, I'd advise simply replacing the valve and hoping that will do the job - more likely than not, it will. (shop around - a couple of minutes' searching on the net showed prices varying between £33 and £58). If you're reasonably confident messing about with electrics, then unplug the machine and use a multimeter to test the coil resistance of each of the three solenoids in turn. You'd expect them all to be within 20% or so of each other. If one is much higher than the others, then you've got a smoking gun, and it really is time to buy a new valve. If you are very confident, you could make up a lead with a 13A plug on one end and a couple of push-on connectors on the other - then use this to apply power to each solenoid in turn, checking for movement of the solenoid armature and water flow. This is a substantially more risky proposition, so only try it if you're confident you know what you're doing - and even then be very careful. If after all that you're still sure the valve is OK, then you need to watch the thing in operation. If you can see the valve open, but there's no flow then you may have a blockage (unlikely, as the valve has an inlet strainer which also serves the main fill). If there's no movement, then you may have a timer or wiring problem. A.

Bosch condensation dryer when on heated dry clothes come out steaming hot not dry

Sounds like something's blocking the hot damp air being removed from the drier. If you are confident enough, go through the drier vent system looking for a blockage. If not get a good DIY neighbour or appliance engineer. Silly question, is the drum turning?

Rinse cycle

If the machine has a soak cycle, you can use that. If it does not, you can have it fill on a cold rinse, and then stop it for a soak. Restart it on a hot wash with a cold rinse. Tumble dry low.

Clothes dryer

washer dryer and dryer ony machines differ in a huge way. the big diff. is the drums on each are completly different sizes. the conventional dryer has the bigger, giving better air flow and tumble to clothes. the w/d has a smaller drum thus less air flow and less tumble between clothes. the best way to see this effect is remove half the clothes after a wash and then select a drying cycle. u will see that by giving the clothes more room to tumble free of each other rather than tumbling in a large ball will dry them. washer dryers are really only a marketing tool.

Tumble dry is heating but takes forever to dry

check your air exhaust (including the lint filter) from the air duct connector (remove duct if necessary) on back of dryer to the exterior of the building. Somewhere, there must be air blockage.
