Question about Creda IWD12 Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Tumble dry is heating but takes forever to dry

The mmachine is no obviously broken in any way. The tumble drier is heating (so the element does not appear to be broken), but the clothes are not drying. Compared to a month ago when washing would fully dry in 1-2 hours, it now takes 12 hours to be left with damp clothes (obviously not leaving it on for that long - did it the once - Elec co's have enough money from us already). Is there anything that can be done to improve the efficency of the condensor??

    This model doesn't have an air duct. I believe it has a condenser, could the problem lie there and is it possible to clean them?

    Please let me know location of condenser in the tumble dryer for the replacement

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.

I want to know that on my washing machine lg-80BKF21P model the time(min) 10 minutes was remaining and the washing process is done,it ends but after drying all is done but 10 minutes were remaining and...


tumble driers and combination washer driers have a 10 minute safety margin, where the heat fior drying is dispersed, to avoid people grabbing very hot clothing.. especially if it is not quite dry as this would make them, hotter to the touch.
Tumble driers usually continue to tumble, but blow cool air through the clothes to get rid of the heat, before stopping.

The tumble inside stoped turning.


You have a broken belt on your drier. Take the back of your drier off and youll see the problem.

A tumble dryer that isn't heating up at all needs checking with a continuity test meter. The most common cause is a heating element failure, or t.o.c's going open circuit. It depends on which make and model of tumble dryer you have as to how easy it is to get to the relevant parts. Some tumble dryers have heating elements that are easily accessible by removing the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious breakage. Others though have their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down. Tumble dryer heating elements are always protected by thermal fuses which are usually simple devices with 2 wires connected. They can be tested for continuity with a test meter
or
If power is getting to the tumble dryer and the socket is definitely OK, then the most common problem with tumble dryers not working is when the door micro switch fails, or the catch on the door that operates the switch either breaks or no longer activates the door switch. Check for broken door catches. There is usually a plastic peg on the door that pushes through a hole in the tumble dryer's casing where the door catch is. Closing the door should operate a simple micro switch. If the plastic peg is broken or bent it might not operate the switch properly

If you are getting 240v on all element connections then you are missing a neutral and the element will not heat.
Please check this and post your findings.

Dryer does not dry clothes


If the dryer tumbles but does not warm up, you either have one or two blown thermal fuses, a burned out element if it’s electric, or a burned out igniter if it’s gas.

 

If one of the two thermal fuses are blown you will not get heat.  Thermal fuses blow (and are not resetable, they must be replaced) when the machine gets too hot.  Often this is caused by not enough air flow through the machine.  Check and make sure your exhaust vent is not clogged.  Clean it the best you can to get all the lint, dead mice, bird nests, etc. out.  Also make sure air is blowing out of the machine when it is turned on.  If not you have a blower problem.

 

The thermal fuses are located on the element casing.  They each have two wires coming out of them.  They are about 3/4 inch round with screw ears on the sides so they are about 1 1/2 inch long and about an inch across.  With a multimeter, check the continuity across the terminals.  If there is no continuity the fuse needs to be replaced.

 

To check the element(s), you can either visually look and see if it is broken or check the continuity with a multimeter.  No continuity means the element is broken.  Replace if necessary.

 

To check for a broken igniter, take out the old one and look at it.  If it looks broken or very burned, replace it.
