I have checked the filter below and the plastic condenser inside the machine .the wash cycle is working perfectly just not drying at all the cloths are damp and cold after the dry cycle . i did change the waste water pump due to another fault 6 months ago but thought i would mention it
I've got this machine, and all washer dryers tend to have two heating elements and it sounds to me that the heating element for the drying side of the machine's functions needs replacing. You could probably find a cheap element for the machine somewhere and get it fitted for a small sum.

Good Day, Your
washing machine is fully automatic?
washing cycle is normal?
do the same maybe it will help you.
the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the
filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a
ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any
small item that coz of clog up.
your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain
motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing
machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running?
the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the
drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the
water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or
cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or
drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or
totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop
the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully
automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor
must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.
it could be the cold water solenoid not allowing much nedded water into the condensor unit... i would check both the hot and cold water feed if both ok and allowing free flow of water into the system have somebody check the poer to both the solenoids if they working ok and allowing water in then check the water pipe from the solenoid going to the condensor which should sit at the backof the machine if this is blocked ornot allowing water to the condenser unit for what ever reason than that could cause the error...i ope thiss is off help kv
Can you hear the pump trying to drain it when you start a cycle? If not it needs a new pump.
Is there a block in the drainage pipe (blow down it and see if it bubbles in the filter compartment). Or a block in the drain - try pouring some water down in.
Otherwise, I had the same problem (an E20 but a clean filter, no blockage and working pump) and it turned out the condenser (a large plastic vessel) or the right side of the machie (you have to take the whole back off) was full of fluff. The engineer just used a wire hanger and ran it under water to clean it out.
If you've found that it hasn't been drying the clothes fully recently that could well be the problem.
Is it that you want to dry only or wash 'n' dry straight through in one go?
If it's to dry only...
1. Switch the machine on
2. Press the Auto Dry or Timed Dry button until the neon light illuminates.
3. For Auto Dry press the button for 2 seconds to achieve the neon indicator to light up. then press the button until the glow is beside the level of drying you require.
4. For Timed Dry press the button until the time you require is in the display.
5. Press the Start/Pause key to start the cycle
Please note: in the Timed dry any time above 60 minutes will be displayed as 70, 75, 80, 85 etc. but then will be shown as 1:10, 1:15, 1:20, 1:25.
For wash 'n' dry straight through...
1. Switch the machine on.
2. Select the fabric.
3. Change the temperature or spin speed if necessary.
4. Select any extra options if required.
5. Follow the above to achieve the drying accompanied by the wash.
6. Then press the Start/Pause button to get the cycle under way.
There is a downloadable PDF of the user manual for this machine on the Service Force website, if you require the programming sequence guide, which, is covered in the user manual, should this explanation prove unhelpful.
I had this problem, the washer/dryer stopped working while in the drying cycle and displayed e10 message. It was caused by a faulty three-way inlet valve. The solenoid controlling flow to dryer condenser proved to be open circuit. Pulled washer out from under counter top, unplugged, removed top cover, tested solenoid circuits with ohm meter and found one solenoid was faulty. The filter going into the unit was clear. Replaced whole three way component with one ordered on Internet and all now works fine. Noticed that during drying cycle, water to condenser is constantly being switched on and off, explaining why the green condenser solenoid is the one that wears out first.
