Question about Supra SW5L30D Front Load Washer / Dryer

Pump stops working during drying cycle

Hello,  I have an Edgestar CW1200 which appears to be the same as the Supra SW5L30D.  The washing functions work great and the pump works fine during the wash cycles.  My problem is that sometime the dryer dries and sometimes it doesn't.  I think I've narrowed down the problem to a water pump issue, it sounds like the pump stops working or the suction for the pump gets weak during the drying cycle.  As I said this doesn't happen every time but lately more times than not the dryer isn't drying.  When it does work it works great, gets very hot and clothes come out dry.  I usually can tell when the pump is not working because I don't here that gurgling sound of water spitting out plus the drum starts to sound like there is loose change in it when it spins, at least that what it sounds like to me.  When it's working properly I do not hear the "change" sound and the pump gurgles at regular intervals.  Usually the dry cycle starts out with the pump working but then stops working during the cycle, maybe 20 to 40 minutes in.  Have you heard of this before?  Any advice would be great.  I have the service manual and am pretty handy so I can order and install a part myself if necessary.  Thank you for your time.

    Are there separate pumps for the washer/dryer? As I stated before the washing cycles work fine and I only have this problem during the drying cycle. I believe there is only one pump in this machine for both the wash and dry cycles, if this is the case why does it only malfunction during the drying cycles? Or am I wrong and there are 2 pumps?

This Supra/Edgestar Washer Dryer Problem Case May Be Helpful.

I have one of these units. Mine will dry normally for awhile and then it starts to take on water and by the end of the cycle the clothes are sopped. My idea about this is that the cooling water and the just condensed steam water are overflowing back into the drying cylinder because the drain pump or the pressure switch have trouble somehow. I am ruling out an overloaded drum (I believe overloaded is 60 lbs.), a clogged drain tube, or a computer malfunction being the cause. My unit will pump out a lot of water, but at times it does not pump when I think it should, and these times get longer as the drying cycle progresses. I take it that it is just not pumping out enough water often enough. The three screws on the pressure switch might fix it. I don't know these are for but I have an idea from other pressure switches- the taller screw port is to adjust both the cut on and cut off pressure, the shorter port screw is to adjust the cut off only, I don't know what the one with the red dot above it does. I don't know if the pump on tendency is adjusted for by turning the screw in or out. Adjusting these so far has made little difference. I'm still working on this.

Where are the service centres in india?


Based on information posted on the internet sites, it is very likely that Supra company has closed down. So it is best to contact the sales outlet you bought the washer/ dryer from. They may be able to tell you who they sold the service facility to in India. In USA the appliance maker EdgeStar Product services the Supra products.

Supra washer/dryer combo leaking significantly


In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Supra SW5L30D parts


You can get parts for the Supra SW5L30D from EdgeStar (can't figure out if EdgeStar bought Supra, or if Supra just changed their name or what). 866-319-5473. I've been able to get the parts I've needed, though they're not the most efficient operation. One time I had to wait for someone to get back from vacation before the part could ship...
