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

My stackable unit quit filling with water. It still spins and drains. I have cleaned the screens out for the water hoses. I have unplugged it for a few. What else can I do to fix my washer?


Use a meter to test the water valve solenoid coils, make sure nobody turned the supply hoses off without you knowing. Did you recently replace the fill hoses or have work done on the machine? Maytag Washer Dryer Combo Water Inlet Valve WP22001274

Drum knock when spin cycle


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.

My Hirundo is not drying well. After hours of spinning the clothers are still wet, and not like usual. The water is draining. Is there a heat elementy to replace? A vent to clear?


Make sure all vents are clean and clear. Next, check the thermal fuse. It should be located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. It can be tested by using a multimeter or ohmmeter to test for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a blown thermal fuse.
Another cause could be a faulty heating element. It can be tested in the same manner as the thermal fuse. Hope this helped and best wishes.

How do I separate a stacked washer/dryer combo unit?


Tried this before and is a major undertaking. The front angle panel has to be removed before you can access the rear panel, and then all of the electrical connections need to be traced and disconnected. This is a job for a tech and not recommended. I would suggest you measure, and then measure again and find a way to remove it in one piece, maybe even out a window if one is big enough.

Separating a washer dryer combo


This is a one piece unit. It does not come apart. Use and appliance hand truck with straps to secure. You will need at least 2 people to get unit out, heavy. I used to deliver appliances.

Estate Dryer takes too long to dry load


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.
