Since the clothes ARE getting hot, it's not the tripped breaker(s) mentioned in Solution #2, because these would cut off power to the heating element(s).
Since it's a Condensing dryer, it can't be an obstructed exhaust hose, either (as there is no dryer exhaust).
Remove the lint filter(s). Holding it over a sink, see if water flows through it. The waxes in "dryer sheets" clog lint filters and, even though invisible to the eye, can totally obstruct the air flow and stop a dryer from drying. Wash it with soap and water.
Question: Does your dryer have a small drain hose leading out the back and going down a drain? If it's clogged, the dryer can't remove any more moisture. If there's no drain, then you have an internal "catch tank" to collect the water evaporated out of the clothes. It's supposed to be emptied after every load. Empty it.
If that's not the problem, I suspect your condenser is not working (removing moisture from the hot stream of air blowing through the wet clothes. This could be because: (1) It's clogged - Take out the boxy thing (technically called a heat exchanger) made of thin aluminum "fins" or tubes, and wash it off in the sink. or (2) The little fan that cools the condenser isn't running. In this case you'll need to call a technician. Good luck

If it's a condensing dryer, then it won't have a vent or exhaust hose, right?

You either have a tripped breaker (reset even if they don't looked tripped), a defective thermostat or heating element, or if the dryer is getting warm but just not hot enough, you have either a pinched off or clogged exhaust. If the exhaust hose is pinched off or clogged it causes what is called a dryer short cycling which means it will never get up to temperature and will cycle on and off. If it's not getting hot at all start with the breakers.

Thor washer/dryer combo not drying properly. What is capacity of machine?

Whilst 'combos' will 'wash' a full load of clothes, they are not so good at 'drying' a full load. Since there must be a 'tumbling space' inside of the drum, into which the clothes can fall during the drying cycle.
In a 'nutshell' one 'wash load' equals 'two drying loads',
That's the price you pay for having a space saving 'combo' machine instead of having a 'washing AND a drying machine.
Add to that the fact that most 'combos' are 'condenser driers', as opposed to 'free flow outlet driers',
The consequence is that it takes far longer to 'wash and dry' a load of clothes in a 'combi' as oppose to two separate machines

Do the clothes eventually dry over a longer period time than usual? If so, there are 2 possible problems.

1. Your dryer vent is nearly clogged
2. If it is electric, then the heating element is going bad.

Dryer will not Dry!

A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.

We bought a used motorhome with a Splendide 2100 w/d combo. It does not dry the clothes, but washes fine. There was no manual on this appliance, so don't know how to find out the problem. Can you help?...

Your heating element could be out. This could be just a bad element or if you don't hear the fan come in the the dry cycle, the fan probably failed and caused the element to burn out. If your clothes are getting warm but not drying completely then you need to check your exhaust hose and make sure it is not clogged with lint.

Splendide 2100 no longer dries clothes

We had the same problem with our splendide 2100 top loader. If you remove the top cover, you will find 2 circular like black discs (the size of a dime) on the right hand side about 6 inches from the front. You need to push those down (with a very small blunt object) to reset them. Please make sure that you unplug your washer/dryer before you attempt this. Good luck.
