No manual for Defy Kombomaid - cant get dryer to work

I got a Defy Kombomaid 800 - Model number on machine DAW290. I have no manual and managed to get the machine to wash with no problem, but I can not get the dryer to work - I am not sure how it works, what am I suppose to put the machine on in order for the dryer to come on. Is there a length of time one has to wait to use the dryer seeing that it also does washing? This way I can establish if the machine is faulty or not. I am sure it is fine, the washer works perfectly and the machine is basically brand new, but the dryer I am unsure of - Please help

The dial to the left operates the dryer. Select amount of drying time, push same start button as for washing machine and voila! Also you can go directly from wash mode to dry mode without machine pausing. Select your wash cylcle, your drying time and push start.

Where do I find the capacitor in a defy tumbledrier model DTD242

Capacitors are used on the motors to add additional starting torque. If your dryer has a cap, it will be on or near the motor. Dryer electrical elements do not have caps: they are resistive.

Reconnecting earth wire for defy kombomaid

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
