Let me ask you upon hooking this dryer up did you install brand new vent work for the exhaust vents? If no they need to be replaced if they are the cheaply made expandable aluminum foiled tubing. If the tubing is made of sheet metal, clean it out thoroughly by taking the tubes completely apart. Most people do not know for the past 20 years the good old government issued manditory moister sensors installed into all dryers to prevent house fires. These sensors detects any lint build up and puts the heat into the check mode. You will initially get heat for a minute or so and that is it if this is your problem

How do you dry on this machine? if you dry on the green, does it completely dry?

The automatic preheat and drying cycle kicks in as the final wash spin is under- way. The system employs a condenser dryer in which the hot air used to dry the clothes is channeled into a drum, instead of being released into the great outdoors via a dry vent hose. Cold water is drawn into the drum at the same time. The two mix, and the result is a condensing process.

The chlothes should be dry. there may be a damp feeling to them but otherwise dry. If your machine is not drying then the element could be going bad, or a thermal cutoff. those would be the easyiest fixes.

The BIG drawback is drying. It takes about 90 minutes to dry a load, and the clothes come out very wrinkled. Because the drum is so small, the clothes don't 'toss' in heated air and don't fluff at all. Clothes also come out stiffer than a regular dryer.

My Dryer not that old, takes all day to dry a small load.

Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

Dishes do not dry

Try these..
1.Check that you are using a regular machine cycle, not a short or special cycle. 2.There could be insufficient water fill or pressure. Run your dishwasher when other household demands for water are low (i.e.k, laundry or bathing). 3.This may be due to improper loading of dishes. Check that your large dishware doesn't block the detergent dispenser or water spray. Check your dishwasher manual for proper loading techniques. 4.You may have used too little detergents. Use Finish tabs for even dosing. 5.The spray arm may have been blocked, please ensure that the spray arm can rotate.

Small rug washing in front end loader washer

its problably not able to balenbace the load of rugs, if the machine cant balance itwont go to high speed spin. in actuallity your probalby better off bringing the rugs to the laundry mats, especially if the are rubber backed, the rubber backing will come off clogging your pump assy, then your looking at replacing hte pump for a few hundred dollars, for a clean set of $30 bath rugs.
