Question about Supra SW5L30D Front Load Washer / Dryer
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.
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.

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.
