Re: intermittant heat for drier
Check for flow of air through the dryer arts as it sounds like the clicking is the thermal cut out activating, this prevents the dryer from overheating, the common cause for overheating is blockage (no air flow) or the fan that blows the air round the machine is not working, or not working properly, so check the fan see if its turning etc
hope i have helped, if so please rate me

Whilst 'combos' will 'wash' a full load of clothes, they are not so good at 'drying' a full load. Since there must be a 'tumbling space' inside of the drum, into which the clothes can fall during the drying cycle. In a 'nutshell' one 'wash load' equals 'two drying loads', That's the price you pay for having a space saving 'combo' machine instead of having a 'washing AND a drying machine. Add to that the fact that most 'combos' are 'condenser driers', as opposed to 'free flow outlet driers', . The consequence is that it takes far longer to 'wash and dry' a load of clothes in a 'combi' as oppose to two separate machines
Hello Reinaldo Rivera - From what you have described the unit seems to either have a communication problem with the control, an issue with the wiring harness or a faulty door switch. Try resetting the unit by flipping the household circuit breaker or unplugging. Wait approximately two minutes and turn on the washer. Select a normal cycle and if issue continues then I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.
Hello. Noises are common when using a two-in-one washer and dryer, as clicking or whirring is part of the cleaning process during the transition to the next cleaning process. The GE Spacesaver washer and dryer combo uses a top-loading washer stacked beneath the front-loading dryer, and uses an agitator that makes noises throughout the spin cycle. Although whirring or clicking is normal, other noises or malfunction indicates a problem with the washer that requires minor troubleshooting. Professional repair is necessary if the washer continues to experience problems during the spin cycle, as there may be a problem with the washer's agitator. 1 Open the washer's door and check the balance of the load's clothes. Clothes that are unevenly distributed around the agitator cause excessive shaking and result in an imbalance during the spin cycle. Reduce the load's size by removing clothing if the washer's drum is overloaded. 2 Push "Start/Pause" to pause the spin cycle and turn the washer's cycle knob to the "Off" position. Turn the knob to "Spin Only" and press "Start/Pause" to reset the cycle. 3 Turn the wrench counterclockwise or clockwise around the unit's legs to adjust the appliance's balance. The legs are adjustable with the help of a wrench to ensure the unit does not shake while in use. An unleveled unit shakes as it spins, and causes excessive squealing or rattling as it attempts to dry the clothes. 4 Touch "Start/Pause" on the front of the washer's control panel and unplug the washer/dryer unit's power cord from the electric oultlet. Wait two minutes and plug the power cord back into the electric outlet. Push "Start/Pause" to resume the spin cycle. Thanks.
Since you say the vent is clear, Make sure that the lint filter is cleared before each load. Make sure the door shuts close and is reasonably sealed. If the dryer draws air past the door, it is not fully drawing heat from the element or burner. Also make sure the washer is doing it's job in the spin cycle. It takes much longer to dry fabrics that are still soppy wet. You might try resetting the washer in the spin cycle to further evacuate the water from the clothes before placing in the dryer. See if that makes a difference. Maybe the washer spin is just being lazy. If it's a top loader it may have a loose belt causing the problem.
With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.
