I am trying to familiarize myself better with the product that you own. From everything I gather from your previous comments, your unit is gas fired. That is a whole different ballgame. I have a link below that shows some reviews of your product, you can scroll down and read some issues that others have had. The ratings for this product, unfortunately, are not good. Also worth noting, almost all of the reviews complain about the drying side giving trouble, so if it is any comfort, which I doubt, you are not alone. But on a good note, because of all the problems they seem to be having, you may have a case for a warranty covered repair. I would definitely give it a shot. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease", and at this point it is clear to me that the dryer has design issues in that I see this problem keep popping up on several websites. Good Luck...I'll continue to look, learn and see if I can help more.

    There has been no mention of gas in the reviews and specs that I have seen, however one did mention a boiler that would indicate a gas fired system. I have read solutions for your problem that ranged from element to thermostat. Still Looking and learning.

Dryer works OK on timed dry but doesn't dry the clothes in Auto dry.


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum 9 this is why in some cases the dryer will operate at lower cycles like gentle or low heat but not at higher settings?)

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

When i set my drier to dry on high heat it keeps tripping the electric with error code f-13 please could you advise me on why this is thanks


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Indesit (Hotpoint, Ariston) 'F13's refer to 'thermistor circuit fault', 'dryer fan not working', 'dryer NTC (thermostat) fault' and other similar things! There CAN be problems with poor connectivity between cables and plugs/ sockets which could cause similar symptoms. It realy needs a service call to identify/cure, sorry ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have a GE washer/dryer Model WSM2700RAWWH stack type and the dryer is taking very long time to dry the clothes. Please advise if it can be fixed. If not what will be best alternate washer/dryer stack...


first things first. if any dryer regardless of brand takes 2-3 hours to dry cloths 90% of the time it is your exhaust duct. take the exhaust duct off the back of the dryer and dry some clothes if the clothes dry fast then you need to have your exhaust duct cleaned. either DIY or call a professional
if it still takes a long time to dry then it could be the thermostats or the thermistor.
but in my experience its normally the exhaust duct.

Not drying , spins and makes all the right noises but no heat


The fault is probably due to thermostat or element not working.
Remove the top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the top right of washer, this is where the stats and element are located.
Also check for broken wires.

My Maytag dryer is not drying. There is power but


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil.
Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor.
Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST. This could cause a fire, as you have removed the saftey of overheat from the machine.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
http://www.partselect.com/

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good Luck,
Hope this helps

There is a filter of sorts in the pump inlet pipe, its a big item catcher coins etc, but thats got nothing to do with the module error wich is a pricey item at £120! I've had one go already and in the last year, a inlet valve plus a control pcb panel in fact its almost a NEW machine! i'll never buy another hotpoint or ariston again. The machine is two yrs old!

Ariston washer/dryer. Dryer not working


Assuming everything else is working, it sounds like your heating element is burned out. Two years is a little short for the typical life span but not unthinkable.

Here's a photo of the part for your unit at a site that sells them. If you pull the back panel off and trace the wires, you should be able to find this part easily. It is designed to be replaced.
