Bendix WDS 1043M Condenser Washer-Dryer

Bought this unit used - owner said it worked fine, but I am finding that it does not dry the clothes - ran the dryer for over 90 min with 3 light shirts in it, they were still damp. is there also supposed to be a fan in this unit?? did not hear one running if there is. thank you for your assistance

Re: Bendix WDS 1043M Condenser Washer-Dryer

I have this model Bendix washer dryer, because it has no venting it drys and holds the condensed air inside, just let it run about 80 min per load then take out each item, shake well to release the condensed vapor, lay over a bed or chair for about 5 minutes.. it will be dry. That is the way it is designed to work. Enjoy

Problem's the heating element or the thermostat. Take the top off & check that the heating element's getting energized. If it's energized then the thermostat and timer are doing their jobs. Turn it off, unplug it & check the resistance of the element. If it's infinite then replace it. I found a great parts place, if you need one. Got the manual, you say? Could you scan it for me?

I bought a used stacked washer /dryer. I hooked it up likea standard 220 dryer. Has the standard dryer plug in. Would not run start or hum in 20 mode. Checked the wiring. looks like it was wired for 110,...

All standard dryer motors run on 120V. Its the heater that uses 240. Its possible to wire a dryer for 120V operation and it will appear to run ok but it won't heat efficiently and it will take several cycles to get the clothes dry. Sounds like you have a mechanical problem with the motor.

Clothes not heating up and remain wet

ok like i said before haiers can be tricky. if you where to remove the lid 2 screws in back pull forward and remove lid. you will see a silver peice i believe you will also see the fan. That metal peice should have 2 wires on it. that is your heating element. I am going by memory so dont quote me. but if you check with no power to the unit///unplug...check the 2 wires at that silver metal peice you should have continuity there. if not your element is bad. i belive it is located to the right of the unit directly under the lid. there is also a thermistate there as well I know those thermistates are not very good. and the last time i had a haier not drying was the thermistate.I think there might be 2 orange wires going to it. I hope this helps..

WDB1043M Bendix Washer/Dryer

I had the same problem. Then I discovered that the Bendix USA WDS1043 / WDC1024 is the same, or almost the same, as a Splendide Comb-o-matic 6000. You can find an extensive parts manual at
and an owners manual at

I think Splendide is still in business, in which case they may also be able to supply parts for the Bendix WDS 1043 M - check them out at

They can also supply a replacement washer/dryer combo when your present unit finally dies.

Good luck with a great washer combo!

We found that we needed to turn down the water inlet to almost off and then the dryer worked when we had the same problem.
Remember to turn it back up again before the next wash
