Question about Smeg WDF16BAX Front Load Washer / Dryer

Open Question

Cycle timer jumps from 40 min to 13 min

When I choose a cycle on the dryer, the timer starts for example at 50 minutes, but after 40 minutes the timer jumps to 13 minutes. Effectively the dryer would only have run for 23 minutes and not the full 50 minute cycle. It does not matter which cycle I choose, after a couple of minutes the timer jumps to a shorter time and stops after that time has passed. Consequently the clothes aren't dry after the cycle has finished.

SOURCE: smeg wdf1 washer dryer not drying clothes

Hi, Take the top cover off and click the little red button on the thermostat/overload (small black box). Then try again. Sometimes these trip out as a safety precaution.

LG front load dryer jumps from 40 min to 19 min to 5 min in short time. Any suggestions?


Dryers can base their drying time two different ways. If you are using the "dryness" settings, when you first start the cycle, the timer will show a specific time. If the contents dry fairly fast, the moisture sensors in the dryer will reduce the remaining drying time. This may be what is causing your changes. If you want a specific time on the dryer, or the dryness settings aren't getting the clothes as dry as you'd like, opt for a "timed" dryer setting, where you choose the drying time. This bypasses the sensors.

Samsung DV218 AEW works fine in time dry but not in normal dry. Jumps from 50 min to 1 and shuts off.


Sounds like you have a bad controller./timer. It i fairly easy to replace if you want to. I would turn timer to max time and know that it will stop at 50 minutes.

I need a night light timer that I can set to be on for 50 minutes and off for 10 minutes and repeat this every hour for 24 hours.


1) If you have programmable timer, then it would require 24 ON and 24 OFF settings, with down-to-the minute programming.
1 ON for each hour.
1 OFF for each hour.
Following link shows Grasslin 50-60 Hz 230Volt din rail timer with 50 memory slots. 16 amp at 230 volts
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/talento_371_372_371_mini_plus_data.pdf

2) If you have 24 hour mechanical timer with dial, it would need 24 ON trippers and 24 off trippers with down-to-the minute schedule.
No timer has that capability.

3) There is C8800 series cycle timer. 120-240Volt 60Hz for US market. 20 amp at 120volts, or 20 amp at 240Volt. Chose 1 hour cycle, then insert 100 trippers and leave 20 blank spaces.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/027-C8800-sprinkler-cycle-timer.pdf

4) There are percentage cycle timers.
For example CT2000. Rated 120Volts 60 Hz for US market.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/CT2000_sell-sheet-with-wiring.pdf
Select 1 hour cycle, and 16% or 84% percentage to choose ON or OFF

Whirlpool Duet dryer time skips mins.


clean the stainless steel sensor pads located just inside the dryer door with isopropyl alcohol,these sensors register moisture in the garments and adjust drying times accordingly,when you use dryer fabric softener sheets it coats these sensors and throws the system off,make sure to shut off power to unit as this alcohol is very flammable,then leave door open to air out before re-powering up unit

Jumps time on timed cycles- for example: High dry is 40 minutes time goes down to 36 minutes and then is jumps down to 23 minutes. Once it goes down some it might jump back up during the 20's then it goes...


Replace the timer, this is very easy. Un plug, remove access panel in the back and un plug the timer. This will be connected right behind the knob. It will be screwed down in front as well. Call your local dealership and get replacement part.

Dryer only shuts off and restarts during cycle


Get a new timer. It is not that expensive and the wiring is fairly simple.

Maytag Bravos Dryer (1 mo. old) timer does not change from start


Maytag Bravos 400 Series Dryer purchased August 2009 - November 2009 required repair as I also experience the timer readjusting itself to excessive extended drying time when clothing was bone dry and hot. Sometimes extended to 1 hour 40 minutes! Serviceman stated problem was the Sensors in the dryer. Part number 8577274 Thermister and "Old Ohmed out open" whatever that means as listed on my repair ticket. Have not had that particular problem since. Make sure your dryer vents from dryer to outside are clean and clear of lint. Will help immensely. I have many other issues with this dryer it has been down FOUR times in 9 months. Fighting with Maytag to replace this lemon!
