I have a washer dryer combo DWC LD1013 it stoped drying. My clothes are more wet when put in to dry. The clothes would be extremely hot but all wet. It works 1 cycle and then stops. Please help ????


In order to dry cloths, you need two things, heat source and air flow. Sounds like you have heat but no air flow. If you can, pull unit out and check vent for washer. Look around unit and make sure there is nothing blocking any vents. If you don't see any thing, try drying with vent not installed. I run into a lot of homes with clogged vents inside walls. By drying with no vent installed, it might tell you if you have dryer problem or a home issue. Good Luck

Gas and electric bills


3 to 4 loads of laundry seems like an awful lot for an elderly couple but if you call your local churches and even your electric company they usually have or know of programs to help the elderly. They may even know of government assistance programs that they may be eligible for.

The dryer is not fully drying clothes


Here are a few basic trouble shooting things to try to get you started. Is this a gas or electric dryer? I will assume electric. Check to make sure the heating element is heating up. You can do this by taking off the vent hose on back, putting the dryer on a hot dry cycle and feel the air coming out. You should have a very strong flow and after just a few minutes you should have hot air. If the air flow is weak, you need to clean the vent and lint tray with a flexible brush to clear any lint and debris from the air path. If the dryer is not blowing hot air it could be a thermostat, the heating element itself or even a bad circut breaker only allowing half of the 220 volt electric to work.

If you have a strong air flow, and hot air the next step is to hook the dryer up to the vent again, go outside and find where the dryer vent exits the home. At the vent exit if you have flaps covering the exit they should blow out fully when the dryer is running, and if there is no vent cover the air flow should be just as strang as it was at the back of the unit. If it is a weak flow you will need to clean or replace the vent from the dryer to outside the home. The most common cause of slow dry or incomplete drying is restricted air flow or the heater not working. Please let me know if any of this helped or fixed the problem. If not we can look into more possible solutions.

Kenmore washer model number 417.44082400 giving error code E21


If the control detects that the washer still has water in it even though it is apparently dry, the control will continue to run the drain pump and will not go into the spin model. If the tub is completely dry, you could have a problem with the water level pressure switch or the control board. This would normally cause an E21 error code on the washer. I provided the technical information for this washer in the image below. The washer will normally signal an error code with a series of blinking lights on the console when the washer will not go into the spin mode. I recommend that you continue to allow the drain pump to run for a while and see if an error code will appear. This will normally indicate the likely failed component that is causing this problem. The information below is intended for technicians. Follow electrical safety guidelines if you use this information. Unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. Some of the checks below call for live voltage checks. I do not recommend that you conduct this type of test on the washer. Live voltage checks should only be conducted by a service technician.

Dryer not heating up or drying clothes


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

Washer will not run power to the outlet but buttons do not work


Sounds like your motor controller is faulty Does your machine light up any buttons or if you have the display model, does the LCD display turn on? Is you machine completely dead, no lights no sounds? If it is first check the power point with a toaster or hairdryer just to be 100% sure it is not the power point.Now the two things that cause the machine not to power up are --1-- the motor controller is faulty or the drain pump is faulty.If you have an electrical test meter or can borrow one I can guide you throe to isolate the faulty part.Please reply for further assistance .

When I turn it on it makes the start up music but no lights come on?


Finally, I think I have fixed this rotten piece of junk. I will never get an LG anything again. I have had the same problem of start up music or chime, but no lights, and i tried unplugging it for a few minutes, to several hours or even days and holdingin the power button in as you plyg it back in, or just holding in the power button in after it is plugged back in and a few times it has started back up, but always after a couple of hours playing with the darned thing. I live in Tucson in a new house with great electrical set up, but when it is 110 outside, the ariconditioner is running full blast and it dims the lights a tiny bit upon startup, then evens out just fine- it is just the initial start up that you notice anything at all with the ariconditioner running. I am a computer tech and got to thinking that the symptoms the washer was having were the same as it there was a power failure, except there was no error message. That got me to thinking that whatever sensor it has for electrical must only be partially tripped- it was not a bad enough of a dip in power to shut the whole thing down- it still startup chimed, but it was just enought hat it would not let the circuit baord start it up, even using all of the resetting information because it wasn't fully tripped off.

Long story short- plug it into a computer battery back up box that has power conditioning like an APC 550 and it lights right up and works fine. It is a picky piece of junk, but at least it works now and since it is just one month out of warranty, I am pretty happy about that.

Agitator not workng right lights flicker


The washing machine is probably not at fault for this. If it really were to have a problem of drawing excessive power, it would trip a breaker, and you didn't indicate any such problem. You probably should consult with a qualified electrician to find the problem with your electric service or house wiring.
