Re: Washer - yes, dryer - NO!

May be as simple as a broken wire to the dryer heat element, take the top off & check if you have 240 volt supply to the dryer heat element

I bought the Whirlpool Duet to replace my old standard washer & dryer and I find that the wash time is longer than the old washer. Even the quick wash takes about 1 hour. Am I doing something wrong...

I assume from your comment that your old washer was a top loader. Yes, front loading machines typically have longer cycle times than top loaders. There are several contibuting factors... first of all, the wash action of a front load is to oscillate the drum back and forth as well as provide a slow tumbling motion whereas a top loader w/ agitator or impeller has a more aggressive action. The more aggressive action rolls and tumbles your clothes more often and therefore cleans faster. Also, because front loaders spin very fast (up to twice as fast as top loaders) to reduce the amount of moisture left in the clothes, they need to have balanced loads. They accomplish this by testing and rebalancing your load several times during each cycle before beginning to spin.

That was a long answer to your question- no, you are not doing anything wrong.

Good luck.

The programme goes through the motions of a tumble dry but the clothes are not drying

Washer Dryers have a built in seperate heating element with a blower fan to dry the clothes. Your problem could be a simple thermostat/overload reset or there could be more sinister problems. This would be hard to decipher without looking at the machine itself.

Several items can cause no spin or slow spin. I'm assuming the motor runs during spin and the water all drains out. A worn or damaged belt can cause your problem. Always replace the drive belt and pump belt at the same time.

Check for smooth and non binding motion of the motor in it's carriage.

A failing bearing (either tub bearing or spin bearing) will restrict tub motion in spin.

A garment in between the inner and outer tub will also restrict tub spin performance.

Won't hardly spin

the back and fourth motion is normal. we have a ge and it does the same thing. for the slow spin and burt rubber smell the drive belt is more than likely streched, the fast fix is to replace the belt. HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!

Broken washer/dryer

This sounds like a motor control board is faulty. Please load a couple of towels in the machine run it. Watch the machine as it goes through its' cycles.

1. Do the towels tumble when the machine is washing ?
2. When it begins to spin, does it spin one way at a fast pace or does it spin one way and then the other ?

Answering these two questions will help in troubleshooting your problem.

GE Front Loader Washer - Not washing

It sound like a lid switch issue. If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. Look that the switch is not broken or loose. If all is fine, you should replace the switch. Good luck!
