Candy CMD146 Washer/Dryer

Had my washer/dryer for over a year now and had no problems with it until now. It doesnt seem to be drying. I only ever put half a load in the dryer anyway but even with a couple pieces of clothes they just don't seem to be drying? Any suggestions?

Re: Candy CMD146 Washer/Dryer

Is the dryer electric or gas? If electric, the heating coil may have burnt out. If gas, check gas supply and then gas ignitor. Good luck.

Why is my hotpoint tcm570 tumble dryer leaving a puddle on the floor

Since no dryer I am aware of uses any liquid, I suggest you may be putting wet clothes into the dryer.
This can happen if the washer does not spin the clothes nearly dry. Many dryers have small holes in the dryer drum to let excess water flow out, I would guess that may be the case with yours.
Are your clothes nearly dry when they come out of the washer?
If not, perhaps the washer has a loose belt or has a problem with the "dry" cycle.
God bless your efforts.

Why is there water in my dryer

Sounds to me like your washer is not going into spin cycle, and someone is throwing sopping wet clothes into your dryer. Do you have kids that cannot understand that you cannot stuff the hell out of your washer or dryer, because the clothes need room to tumble, agitate etc? Some 30+ year olds cannot seem to grasp this in my house, but then, they think that electricity is free too.

This is usually located either near the bottom front, possibly behind a plate, or inside the rim of the drum. Check the user manual.

Hello my dryer doesnt work properly it runs

The valve resistance is 1995 ohms and the ignitor is 185.
Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home.
If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry.
When the dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.

LG gas dryers are more sensitive to venting length and air flow resistance. The gas burner can cause a rapid increase in temperature compared to an electric burner.
Rapid temperature rise in a gas dryer leads to premature burner shutdown (longer time required to dry laundry).
The gradual temperature increase of an electric element is more "forgiving" in homes where the dryer venting is less than ideal.

The dryer has an auto dry feature which never fully dries the clothes so we wind up manually setting the dry time to an hour
LG gas dryers are VERY temperamental in long vent set-ups. If fabric softener sheets are used in the dryer--clean the two stainless steel strips of metal on the lint filter housing with a SCOTCHBRITE PAD--scrub back & forth several times to remove the waxy residue from the fabric softener sheets. Most,if not all manufacturers do *not* recommend using sheets in dryers that have a moisture sensor (electrodes).
However--using a SCOTCHBRITE pad keeps the wax off those sensors which can be seen if looking *into* the dryer drum and at the lint filter housing.
If only *liquid* fabric softener is used in the washer--clean the dryer sensors once a month. Liquid softener also contains wax which can slowly accumulate on the dryer sensors from the laundry washed in the washer.

Dryer beeping after being on about 5 minutes

If you purchased them in Feb of this year then the units are still under a full warranty. Maybe I am over simlifying this but you should call for service.

Candy CMD146 Washer Dryer drum spins but does not heat

Yes it could be the heating element. However, it could be the thermal overload switch. This is located under the top of the machine. Bypass it to see if works. If it does, then it is the switch. If not, check the element. It sounds like this is the element with the 2 yellow wires.You will need to pull it to visually check to see if it is burned in 2.Check the element first since you have easier access to it. Let me know how this works.
