Check The Ducting To Make Sure There Is No Obstructions Inside. Find The Outlet Outside Where The Duct Goes And See If Your Getting A lot Of Air. In Some Cases You May Have To Remove The Back Of The Dryer To Remove The Biggest Lint Ball In The World.
This Huge Lint Ball Builds Up Over Time And Quickly For Users Who Do Not Clean The Lint Trap On Every Cycle.

All Of The Above Will Cause The Dryer To Not Be Able To Get Good Air Flow Thus Causing The Machine To Have To Much Back Pressure.

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?

I have jst purchased this washer today, however the dryer takes ages,,,,,,their seems to be water going in when its drying, clothes come out hot, but still as damp as when i put them into dry.


Hi, this is normal for a washer dryer, water isn't actually going in, it is condensating and then being pumped away.

when you use the dryer program your are only meant to put half the washing load or less in at a time if there is too much wet washing in the machine it will take forever to dry as it cant get rid of the amount of condensation quick enough so some of it is reabsorbed into the clothes and so it goes on.

so the trick is only to put in a maximum of half the full washing load.

Hope this helps.

Dryer not drying cloths even though it does the full cycle? hotpoint wd63


There are several reasons for this to happen.
  1. Heater element faulty.
  2. Thermostat faulty.
  3. Heater relay faulty.
  4. Blocked condenser.
  5. No cold water going in on drying cycle.
You really need a meter to test the components with, to get the bottom of the problem.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Clothes not heating up and remain wet


ok like i said before haiers can be tricky. if you where to remove the lid 2 screws in back pull forward and remove lid. you will see a silver peice i believe you will also see the fan. That metal peice should have 2 wires on it. that is your heating element. I am going by memory so dont quote me. but if you check with no power to the unit///unplug...check the 2 wires at that silver metal peice you should have continuity there. if not your element is bad. i belive it is located to the right of the unit directly under the lid. there is also a thermistate there as well I know those thermistates are not very good. and the last time i had a haier not drying was the thermistate.I think there might be 2 orange wires going to it. I hope this helps..

LG Senseclean washer dryer combo won't dry


The problem is likely due to lint build up in the condensing unit. I found a solution here:
http://www.motusconnect.com/blog/2009/1/5/lg-washer-dryer-drama-%E2%80%93-diy-fix

I also had a softball size ball of wet, packed lint in the condensing unit. I found that the unit can be cleaned without tools or dis-assembly by:
  1. draining the water.
  2. laying the washer on it's back.
  3. removing the hose clamp on the rubber bellows that connects the drum to the condensing unit (right hand side of machine).
  4. digging the lint wads out with your fingers and a small screwdriver.
Happy drying!

Clothes wont dry but gets really hot


Hello, sounds like your cold water feed hose has got a kink in it. The machine needs cold water to condense the steam. Just pull out the machine and slowly slide back into place.

Drying cycle


Is the drying fan rotating(you should hear this)? Or the watertap closed. It uses cold water to make the steam into condense. If tap is closed, the machine has no water to cool the steam with. Check lint filter.

Dryer doesn't dry clothes, doesn't start right after Wash


If the machine is brand new, I imagine all you want to do is check you're using the machine correctly before you claim on the warranty. Trouble is, the design of this machine is so weird, and the instructions so poor that it's easy to get it wrong. So far as I can make out from this distance, you need to have all of: Spin Cancel: Out Half Load: In Cold/Cold: In Hot/Cold: Out Cold water supply: Available Drain Hose: Connected .... and as with most condensing dryers, you need to let it run to the end of its cycle - if you take stuff out without running the final 12 minute cooldown period, everything will come out feeling a bit clammy. If those control settings don't help, try a functional faultfinding approach. To dry properly, the machine needs to do four things at once: 1. Tumble the clothes: You can see whether this is happening or not. From your description, it sounds like this is working. If this isn't right, see if changing control settings works, but then for a new machine make a warranty call. 2. Blow hot air over the clothes: You should be able to hear the fan running, and if you open the door, the air which comes out should be quite warm. If this isn't right, see if changing control settings works, but then for a new machine make a warranty call. 3. Condense the moisture out of the circulating air: If this isn't happening, the clothes don't get any dryer - they just get increasingly hot. Before making a warranty claim, all you need to do with this problem is ensure that the supplies and settings are such that cold water (and only cold water) is getting to the condenser. 4. Pump out the condensate: If you've just washed successfully, this is probably going to be working fine. If not, then you'll start to see the drum slowly filling with water. If this happens, check the filter (p12 of the manual), then get the warranty claim going. Welcome follow-on questions or news on how you get on posted as a comment to this query. A.

Heating, draining water(enough?) but not drying clothes, they're just HOT, so is top of machine


You have a problem with the condensing duct.  Possibly clogged with excess and lint and needs to be cleaned out.  This requires disassembly of the unit to get to it.  Not a difficult job but not easy.
