The machine will wash just fine but it usually takes 2-3 times drying cycle to get the clothes dry. But now after going all the way through one cycle of 2 hours of drying time when I restart the dryer it beeps and stops after about 30 mins. There was the code E-4 flashing. I looked in the manual and it said it wasn't heating up for a least 5 mins. and to call repairman.
I told the manager of my apartment and the repairman came out. So he looked at it and started it up. He let it run for about 30 mins. and the dryer worked fine. Of course as soon as I tried to wash a load of clothes it did the same thing. It works fine during the first cycle but everything is still wet. I put it on drying cycle only and after a few minutes it stops and beeps with flashing code E-4.
This has happened twice! My clothes are mildewed. I am disabled and can't walk so I need my dryer to work desperately. The repairman and the apartment manager thinks I am crazy because everytime I call them when the repairman comes out the dang thing works. Is there anything I can do to get the dryer to work? The repairman charges $75.00 for house calls and I am afraid my apartment manager will just start ignoring me when I tell him something is wrong with the washer/dryer or they will make me pay the service charge because the repairman says there is nothing wrong with the washer/dryer.
Please help me if you can I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

The amount of creasing you will get is directly related to the speed you select for the final spin dry cycle and the spin after the first wash cycle which occurs prior to the rinse cycle. The higher the speed and the longer it goes for the more the clothes will crease.
Experiment with different spin speeds on your machine for clothing that is subject to the creasing problem. Also do not put too many items in the machine for a wash as many people do as this will contribute to creasing. Always under load your machine for every wash cycle.
Spin drying is a compromise between creasing and maximum water removal. If you want less creasing you will need to select a more gentle spin dry speed but you will also have the clothes coming out of the machine with a higher water content and they will take a bit longer to dry. The spin time on the program may also be shorter.
In my own machines I use a gentle wash and spin cycle for all clothing that I don't want heavily creased. Running it on a wash cycle with a high and longer spin speed when the machine is spinning the clothes after the initial wash, and then again after the final rinse, will thoroughly crease the clothes every time.
Also bear in mind that different fabrics that are suitable for machine washing will perform differently and some are just too subject to creasing even if you use the most gentle wash, rinse and spin cycle. Hence you can take 2 different 100% cotton fabrics out of a machine and hang them to dry and one will be almost crease free and the other will be thoroughly creased. With these fabrics that are just very subject to wash creasing, it is better to hand wash and rinse them. Then after rinsing drip dry them or put them in the machine and spin them for 1 -2 minutes maximum just to get some of the water out and hang dry them.
Please start with your clothes after the washer finishes it's washing cycle.
Take them out and see how dry they are.
They should be nearly dry.
If not, perhaps the reason you are having problems is they are too wet to begin with for the dryer to properly do it's job..
This is not a rare problem.
One possible reason for the clothes not to be dry when the washer finishes is a loose or worn out belt under the washer.
Another problem some washers have, particularly washer/dryer combos, is that they are sometimes not very effective.
In that case, either smaller loads or rerunning the spin cycle at the end of the washing cycle might help you.
God bless your efforts.
The first thing you need to check is your vent system. If your dryer vent is clogged with lint, the dryer has a hard time expelling the moisture.
Then, if the vent is clean, try using a timed drying cycle instead of a sensor cycle. If your clothes get dry using the timed cycle, then you might have a sensor problem.
Also, make sure your wash machine is properly spinning out the clothes. I saw that once before where the customer thought the problem was with the dryer, but it ended up being their wash machine's ATC switch adding water at the end of the spin cycle.
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
Just got Hoover 700 la manual top loader 2. hand...it is taking maximum amount of water on low arrange, and takes an hour on delicates. it also spin dries very strongly, just ruined my clothes..what you would suggest folks.. cheers aysh
No recall, Pour 2 cups of bleach into the washer, Wash on HOT water, long cycle. Then wipe seal with dry cloth. This will eliminate the mold smell... To stop it from coming back ALL front load washer doors MUST be left open to allow the rubber seal to dry, Just like you close your shower curtain so it doesn't get musty smelling... 2 hours is about the dry time... wiping the seal with a cloth usually helps too... All located in your owners manual/
I just contacted Samsung Tech Support for my wash/dryer combo WD-J1255C. The reply.."it is not a full dryer ...and it is not sold as a full drier.. and don't expect it to be completely dry". I queried why it is advertised as a dryer and got the same reply. Its a great washer but why did I pay extra for the dryer combo?
