Indesit Washer/ Dryer 1200

Since moving house our Indesit washer/dryer has stopped drying. It doesn't matter which 'dry' setting you use it on it just washes the clothes again. IS there anything we can try to fix this?? Is it worth getting an engeineer out? Do we need to buy a new one?

A lot of times when people move they find their dryer has suddenly stopped working. Check the voltage at the outlet, make sure it matches the voltage on the i.d. plate on the appliance. I know people who didn't want to fuss with it and bought a new dryer only to find it did the same thing.

My dryer is Tcm570 it started leaking water on the floor while clothes are drying, then not drying after circulation. But if I try to put it on now it turns all the power in the house off. What's


There are a lot of parts to this problem: First don't plug it in again or try to restart it...yet, Make sure before you reset the circuit breaker that you unplug the dryer. So now your home should be fine! The dryer is another story... I have answered this problem for others and with other dryers... Please focus on your washer, there should be very little water that remains in your clothes after the wash cycle and the clothes should Definitely not be dripping. Check to see that your spin cycle is working and if necessary run it through the spin cycle again. You may be overloading the washer. Back to the dryer...NO water should EVER drip from a dryer! If you do not wish to call a service person I would wait about 1 1/2 weeks for the dryer to dry itself and give the dryer another try after that and set it for Air dry only (no heat) if you don't have a problem at that point then stop the dryer and set it for a low heat cycle and try again. I think at that point you should be OK? If you do have problems.. you will have to call in a service person. But please remember clothes should be quite dry coming from the washer before going into the dryer.

My dryer is producing heat but is not drying, i am drying the same size load i usually do on the same cycle. the lent is cleaned out, and the oustide vent is blowing hot air. why are my clothes not getting...


make sure that all the seals are ok, door,front and back drum seal, blower housing seal(inside dryer). also consider that depending on washer type if you overload or have a worn drive belt in washer it will take twice the time to dry. also make sure that the dryer drum tumble. open door,press door switch and start dryer to see if drum turn. lastly disconnect vent pipe behind dryer and dry a load. if it dry ok then you have a partial blockage. you can also have a weak heating element.

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.

Problem:
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
Solution:
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.

Sheets wind together in a damp ball


I have a different model Bosch dryer, but I have the same problem.

I've found that the flat sheets dry okay if you have them in with other things (like pillowcases and t-shirts). I learned long ago though that you can't put those things in with deep fitted sheets; the little stuff winds up caught in the corners in damp wrinkly wads.

So I dry the fitted sheet separately, and throw in a couple of clean tennis balls. They're noisy, but harmless, and they keep the sheet from balling up.
