Hi there as no model number for your w/d has been supplied it is quite difficult to diagnose fault but the usual faults on a dryer unit not drying are the overheat thermostats blowing, or the element burnt out and somtimes the fan motor ceasing.

hope this is of some help to you murdozzz

    hi there first remove the lid and set the machine to the drying prog and start it ,leave for about a minute and confirm that the fan motor is running,you should be able to here it whirr,if there is no action from the fan motor it will need to be replaced, if all is ok then you either have a faulty dryer element or thermal fuse,the t/fuse is in a yellow heat resistant sleeve screwed on to the heater box next to the element, to test these parts you will need to do a continuity test across each terminal with a test meter.



    hope this helps.



    ps.always disconnect machine from mains before attempting to do any repair.

The dial to the left operates the dryer. Select amount of drying time, push same start button as for washing machine and voila! Also you can go directly from wash mode to dry mode without machine pausing. Select your wash cylcle, your drying time and push start.

Washer Dryer


washer dryers work by using a fine jet of cold water to condense the steam from your clothes drying. therefore, water has to be turned on when in the drying mode. make sure water is on.
after that, if water is in fact turned on, then the fault will probably lie in the valve being open circuit

Washer dryer is no longer drying


two things to check take rear half of cabinet off and check the dryer duct (lhs from front) is not blocked. this is very common check water is being taken in during dry - the water is used to condense steam from the drying clothes. easiest way to check this is to see that some water is being drained during the drying cycle. i assume that drain is operating ok
