How do i access my dryer filter

On the front at the bottom left is a rectangular panel that you pop off. (I use 1/2 a wooden laundry clip so as not to scratch finish.) Have a bowl or a bucket handy and perhaps a towel or two. There is a tube clipped to the washer. Detach from washer and unplug it and let water drain into your bowl. When water stops flowing, plug and reattach. Then (with towels ready) turn the the pump filter counter-clockwise (the circle to the right of the tube) until it comes out. More water will drain in this process. Clean the filter of any foreign objects. Replace and turn clockwise until it won't turn any more.

Dryer will not Dry!

A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.

Washer-dryer # wm3677HW will not dry,heats up, run, on and on

You're a moron. This unit washes and dries. That's the whole point of it. Perhaps you should do some research before answering the question. the most likely cause is the water lever sensor.

Cycle is leaving loads of soaking wet clothes

Power off the wall. Get user's manual, look for blocked filter. Open up the filter, usually front bottom right side, clean, refit. Be prepared for much water to come out. The filter requires periodic cleaning according to usage.
Also possible your hose under the machine tub is blocked.......

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.
