Indesit widl126 does not dry

I have an indesit widl126 washer/dryer. There is a problem with drying: even after 2 hours, the clothes become more wet, although very hot. When opening the door, hot moist comes out. I checked the drain at the bottom, I emptied it. What is the problem? I think it is similar to this: http://www.fixya.com/support/t3029127-indesit_widl126_washer_dryer_doesnt_dry But I don't really understand the response where to find the vent etc. Please help! Thank you in advance!

Had the same problem, very hot but wet clothes. This is a condensor drier. The fack that the clothes are hot rules out the heater or its control. If yoy hear the fan running and there is no blockage the fault is caused by the 3 stage water valve. During drying a small amount of water is passed through a condensor chamber, the cold water causes steam the condense backi into water then is pumped out through the drain. If the water valve fails no condensing takes place and the clothes remain wet. The valve is easy to change and costs about 15 pounds.

    Hi kvik, the valve on my machine is a triple valve which is located behind the water inlet hose. The hose to the condensor tank routes from the valve along the rear of the machine. Remove the hose from the tank end and hold it over a large bowl. Start a drying cycle and after a few minutes water should come out of the hose at low pressure. No water is most likely due to the valve. Note that a light buzzing can be felt through the valve wh en it is being powered to open. Ruling out the need to check the electric control side. Hope that help.

SOURCE: Clothes do not get dry when using the sensor dry setting on GE dryer.

Ok, Jeff, I see you have a front loader, electric. On this model we have inlet thermistors, outlet thermistors, and the sensor bars are non serviceable, which means they are part of the blower housing. Not a big deal. Let's put it into a test mode and test the voltage drop of the sensors. They are on the inside of the drum just below the vent gate. 2 bars. Unplug the dryer for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and within 10 seconds press in this order: signal button, delay start, signal button again and delay start again. The consol should show t01. This is test 1. You want to turn the main dial clockwise until the test shows t09, this will be the sensor test. With the drum dry it should show around 5 volts DC. Now take a wet rag and place it over the bars, the display should show a voltage drop to around .5 or 1volt DC. If it does this the sensor is working properly. See if you can run this test successfully and post back. Catriver.

SOURCE: MCG8000AWW takes too long to dry

The font panel must be removed. This may be done by removing the control console (open upper cabinet doors to find screws behind the console). The screws along the top of the lower front panel are easily accessible. Disconnect the two interlock switches, remove the grounding clip attached to the bulkhead & lift the panel off the two lower clips. Inside the panel is a housing that leads to the exhaust blower. It will be packed with lint that may be hardened like papier mache. Just clean out the mess & reverse the process to replace the parts.

SOURCE: My maytag centennial dryer is getting too hot and

Exhaust problems are the only thing that will cause this. Check to make sure the exhaust behind the dryer is going straight out without alot of bends. Also no exhaust should be over 20 ft to the outside. Ther is a tip on how to clear house exhaust in the tips section. Just type dryer to long to dry and should take you there.

SOURCE: Hi, My maytag bravos dryer is one year and 2

Sounds like the exhaust fan is not working. There's an electric blower at the back of the unit that forces air out through the exhaust vent. Unplug the unit, pull the vent off the back, and see if you can reach in and touch the fan blades and make them move. If it won't move something is probably caught in there. You may need to take off the back of the unit and remove the housing cover to the fan assembly in order to really tell what's going on, but it sounds like your fan has an obstruction. It could also be that the fan motor is fried but that seems less likely. Remember to have the unit unplugged, there's some dangerous voltage inside.

Sounds like your thermostat controller and or temperature sensor has failed, that, or it is the main Controller board, or both/all. Or it's an Element that's faulty. One must work through the troubleshooting procedures to isolate and then remedy the issue.

I have an indesit widxl146 washer drier and the machine takes an age to dry clothes, 9 hours as oppose to 2 hours when new


9 Hours!!! I hope it isn't because the clothes are too wet because if it is I wouldn't like your electricity bill!!
There are a number of things you need to check.
I assume that you are not overloading the machine, and that you are using the correct spin cycle
Don't start the drying cycle directly after the wash, take out the clothes and see how dry they are after the wash, you need to ascertain if it is spinning the load sufficiently fast to dry them. How dry are they directly after the spin? If they are not wetter than they should be then the dryer is not getting hot enough during the drying cycle, this could be due to a faulty thermostat or element.
Make sure all the filters are clean including the pre chamber down below so that it can pump out the water (I guess it must be clear if it is washing ok? but check anyway.
The principal parts involved, assuming that
Also check that you haven't got a delay set for the dryer (unlikely I know but I thought I would mention it anyway)
I hope that helps.

My Indesit WIDL126 washer/dryer doesn't dry clothes


You have an air flow problem. This usually happens when the exhaust pipe/vent gets clogged. Clean/inspect the vent outlet, the pipe, the inlet, and the filter/lint catcher area.

Improper air flow prevents the moisture from being vented out of the dryer.

Dyer malfunctions


Clean off the two metal bar inside the drum, near the lint filter. (these are the moisture sensors, which can become coated with fabric softener sheet residue, preventing the dryer from "seeing" that the clothes are still wet)

Hello: I have a Maytag, do not know model # as I inherited the 5 year old model when I purchased a condo and it is now 7 years old. The front of it states Maytag - Dependable Use, Heavy Dtuty - Large...


I ALWAYS START WITH VENTING WHEN CALLED WITH LONG DRYING TIMES BUT I HAVE SEEN WHERE ONLY HALF OF THE HEATING ELEMENT IS WORKING, WHICH IS PRETTY RARE. A NORMAL LOAD WOULD BE WHATEVER THE WASHER HAD IN IT WHICH WOULD BE LOOSLY FILLED TO THE TOP ROW OF HOLES IN THE WASHER TUB. THE ONLY OTHER QUESTION I WOULD ASK IS IF THE WASHER SEEMS TO BE SPINNING OUT PROPERLY AND IF THE CLOTHES ARE GOING INTO THE DRYER TOO WET.
