Question about Haier HWD1000

1 Answer

Hwd1000 drying Until recently I have had no problem with the drying cycle on this machine. Now it will run, but will not dry the cloths at all. I can put just 1 article of clothing in and still the same thing. It is like it is not getting hot enough to dry the cloths. What could be the problem?

    The heating element gets hot.

  • ron super Jan 31, 2009

    Im sorry, I should have explained better. This is a vent free washer dryer combo. The heating element gets hot, is it possible though that it does not get hot enough to dry the cloths? Thanks

    I replaced the heating element, the thermostat, the housing that the element and thermostat are in gets hot. I had a towel in there for 4 hours and it still did not dry. What could be the problem?

    The dryer just stopped working. It will go on for a couple of hours but then the clothes will still be wet. So I tried to run the program again but same results.

    My dryer stopped drying the clothes. It feels hot but the clothes come out wet-even with only 2 or 3 things in there drying for an hour. It was working until recently-what could have happened?

    Ok it sounds like your vent hose is blocked,or pinched when it was pushed against the wall. A lot of fires happen when to much lint builds up in the hose.Pull the dryer out and unhook the vent hose and clean it out. Also go outside and find where the vent exits the wall.the cover could be stuck also,take some kind of rod (clothes hanger) make a hook and pull all the lint out.

    Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me or

    Is there a vent where the heat should be comming out?Wonder if you havea blockage tothe drum.

  • walsh780 Sep 13, 2011

    I had a similar problem and discovered that there was a large accumulation of lint around the blower fan area. This kept the hot air from circulating into the drum. To get to this area you have to remove the top of the metal housing where the heat element resides. There are some clips to remove, and 4 screws.

The dryer stopped working for my hwd1000 --

Check your belt. It may be shot. And that will cause your machine to do that. The heat will still work but your clothes will not dry.

Error U04 means the door is open.

Put your knee against the door handle and press it against the handle until you hear a click. The machine should start filling within a minute.

This is a problem I had start occurring about a month after I started using the machine. You will soon do this for every load, a minor annoyance on a cheap machine.


Error EC4 refers to the temperature of the air vent.
Within 30 minutes of dry cycle there is 5 minutes in which the temperature is not increasing.

Ask the technician to
repair it.

Alternatively make a custom cycle with no drying cycle and hang dry the laundry. I usually do this myself as opposed to listening to it groan for 2-3 hours.

My HWD1000 Haier Washer/Dryer combo error EC4

EC4 is regarding: The temperature of air vent.

Within 30 minutes of dry cycle there is 5 minutes in which the temperature is not increasing.

The dryer heater is not working properly. Call a repair technician.

Alternatively, create a custom wash cycle with no dry cycle and hang dry the laundry if you are past warranty and do not want to pay to repair it.

solved!!!! theres a flaw in the machine, lint builds up in air return area from the back of the machine to the heater, takes about 45 min to fix, take off lid and back pannel, remove weight, remove heater wires and hoses, remove plastic air return area, clean out lint, put back together, the air temp sensor is in the plasic housing in the rear of the plastic housing, the lint blocks air from circulating and triggers warning

Dryer Problem

EC4 The temperature of air vent
Within 30 minutes of dry cycle there is 5 minutes in which the temperature is not increasing.

You need to call for repairs. Probably the heating element is faulty.

You can create a custom program without a dry cycle and hang dry your clothing.
