I ended up trying the machine on a few different cycles all of which failed to complete. Finally tried a 'Drying' only cycle and it emptied out quite alot of water which was odd. It now seems fine. guessing it was a blockage and a certain amount of water was backed up in the machine??? any clarity welcome.

Had an identical problem with my 16830 washer dryer and noticed reading other posts that others have had this issue with 16810 units too. After reading posts about the 'condensor issue' causing clothes not to dry properly I got a socket set and took the back-half cover off the machine (11 screws/hex screws in all) to have a look. I then removed and cleaned out the accumulated fluff from the transparent plastic condensor unit. It didn't appear to have much fluff caught within it so I doubted that this would solve the issue.
Upon putting the unit back into situ I noticed that the temperature sensor in the large black flexible tube that connects the condensor to the drum had just one orange wire attached to it. I then noticed a second orange wire hanging loose nearby and putting two and two together figured that the loose wire had dropped off the sensor. Since the connector can't be rewired I resorted to carefully soldering the loose wire to the connector and ty-rapped both orange wires to the connector to prevent the wires working loose again. Once I had the connector back on the sensor both wires were pretty taut between the main wiring loom and the sensor and so I suspect that what had happened was that in normal use the wire had come adrift from the connector due to the drum rocking back and forth and pulling the wires against the loom - a design flaw I'd say.
To create more slack for the two wires in question I cut the ty-rap holding the main wiring loom to the side of the dryer and then re-fitted a new ty-rap in exactly the same place around all the wires in the main loom except for the two orange wires so that they remained free of the main loom to move as the drum rocks. With the wire back in place and everthing re-assembled the dryer heats up perfectly and counts down as it should.
I figured that with the sensor not operating the computer determined incorrectly that the air leaving the drum was too hot/dry as would be the case if the contents of the drum were completely dry and as a result the computer turned off and kept off the heater for the remainder of the drying cycle. I also concluded that as an energy saving feature - with the computer thinking the clothes are dry - the dryer speeds up the remaining drying time so that the drying cycle finishes sooner, hence why the counter completes sooner than it should and all with no error message.
Hope this is of help to others.

Hi there, we too have a similar problem. Our new door handle part has arrived but we are having huge problems fitting it as we cant prise the grey outer trim off the door and thus can't get in to put the new door handle in.
Please help! How can we get the trim off without resorting to serious damage with a screwdriver!!!?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
As long as the hose still has its 'bung' in the end and it's not ripped or torn so that water does not come out, I cannot see the fact that it is 'very loose' affecting anything. You would have to pull it to gain access to the bung in an 'emergency and drain whatever water was left in it anyway ;-0)
Clever lad. Put him on FixYa to give advice on 'emergency emptying' !
Cheers, John C
