Question about QuietLine WD-9900 Front Load Washer / Dryer

2 Answers

Dryer does not cool down and clothes are "very hot" to touch when cycle has completed. We changed out the cycling thermostat but that does not seem to be the problem. Any suggestions?

    The cycling thermostat was replaced but this does not seem to solve the problem. Should the heating element come on when dryer is on "air fluff". Mine does. Is this normal? All vents are clean, no lint or debris. Dryer is not that old..less than 1 year old. Do I need to replace other thermostats too? I would appreciate any help. Thanks

1. clean the inside of the door (behind the holes). Watch your hands, the holes are usually very sharp.
2. clean the exhaust pipe (with the crevice tool of a vaccuum) below the screen.
3. remove the hose to the outside exhaust vent. Take it outside and clean it out or buy a new one.
4. clean out the exhast vent to the house or buy a new one.
5. replace all of the thermostats (two or three)

There is a device on top of EVERY drier output or exhaust pipe INSIDE the machine that measures the heat. There are usually two and sometimes three. Each of these devices (thermocouples) job is to shut down when the temperature reaches a certain value. The first one is usually inside the door and measures the temperature which is sent to the computer, compared against the temperature setting you gave it "cool, warm or hot" and regulates the heaters accordingly. When this is working properly then there is no need to have any of the other ones. However, the others are there because dryers are very dirty devices and often fill the air outlets with "fuzz". The fuzz then insulates the thermostat so that it can't measure the correct temperature. The other one or two are emergencies to make sure you don't have a fire. I've seen dryers where all of these devices have burnt up. You can't measure whether they are working or not without a controlled heat source and a working temperature probe. Just count on replacing them.

Hi,

Check all vents and clean the filters.

There should be a blower fan inside that circulates the air when the heating element is on.
If the fan is not circulating the air properly, the heat will build up.

There is also a problem of accumulation of lint in the air ducts.

This should be removed.
There are numerous occurances of similar problems to yours resulting in fires, due to excess heat and lint build up.

PLEASE be aware of the safety issue in resolving this.

Thanks.

Just purchased 2nd hand Miele novotronic w310. Does machine automatically stop? Cycle ends, anti crease light on and machine just tumbles clothes makes odd noise, then tumbles again. Is the normal?


NORMALLY WHEN A DRYER COMPLETES IT'S DRYING TIME IT WILL GO THROUGH A COOLING DOWN CYCLE,
DRYER WILL START TURNING WITH FAN ON ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN STOP, AFTER A SHORT PERIOD IT WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL UNIT HAS COOLED DOWN, HOPE THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING
GOOD LUCK

Dryer not drying


ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or overheating.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

The dryer on my machine doesn't go through a cooling down cycle, therefore leaves everything very creased.Does the dryer have a cooling down cycle? The clothes come out of the dryer burning hot.


I would check the cycling thermostat and hi limit thermostat as they regulate heat. the cooling cycle should come on at end of cycle as the thermostat detects the dryness of the clothes. also may want to check the moister sensor inside the drum usually on the door, they look like 2 aluminum strips.

My dryer keeps blowing the thermal fuse help


Check your lint filter, exhaust duct, and check if duct flapper is opening fully or not. Allow some time between loads and don't stuff too many clothes.

How do i do drying only


From the document I see, it is only a matter of pressing the "Dry" button. This is from the manual, available at http://www.lg.com/us/appliances/washer-dryer-combos/LG-WM3431HW.jsp and selecting the "Support" tab. On the right, there will be a "Washer/Dryer Combos Manual" link, which will download to your computer. Listed under "Dry" in Section 9 is the following.
• Drying options are easily selected with the Dry button. • For most even drying , make sure all articles in the clothes load are similar in material and thickness. • Do not overload dryer by stuffing too many articles into drum. Items must be able to tumble freely • If you open door and remove load before dryer has finished its cycle, remember to press the Start/Pause button. • By pressing the Dry button, you can select "Normal" - "More" - "Time" - "Off" - "Low Temp" - "Less" • Your dryer can handle a load of up to 9 lbs. (4 kg) dry weight of articles. • When drying cycle is completed, [Cd] (Cool Down) is displayed on the Multi display. • Cool Down is set automatically when the drying cycle is complete. • If clothes are not removed promptly when the drying cycle ends, wrinkles can form. • The Cool Down feature periodically tumbles, rearranges and fluffs the load to avoid wrinkles for up to 4 hours. • The message [Cd] will continue to display until the clothes are removed or the Start/Pause button is pressed
Hope this solves your problem. I highly recommend downloading the users manual, it is a wealth of information and will prove useful in many circumstances.

My whirlpool AWZ510E washer dryer - the dryer doesn't seem to be working - it goes through the cycle but the clothes are still as wet as before. I am using the same cycle as I always have which used to...


there are 3 reasons for a dryer not doing the job yet running through the motions. 1st, the heat is not being produced and only cool room temp air is circulating. this can be a burned-out electric element or an over-heat sensor, or in0line safety fuse. ( if gas, can be ignitor or gas valve coils).. It could be that the washer is not ringing (spinning) dry the clothes verywell and there is too much moisture stiil in clothes which would double the dry time from 50-60 minutes to 2 hours. 3rd, could be clogged vent line and the hot moist air cannot leave the dryer so the clothes get hot by the moisture stays.

Dryer does not stop. time shows flashing rectangle.Is this normal


Hi There
I have this for you to read this should get you on the right track. Let me know how it went.
It seems to run forever If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system. Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.
Thank you for writing to fix ya.

Clothes still wet aftre drying cycle over


It sounds as if the wash cycle isn't terminated by pumping the rinse water out and spinning to rid the clothing of most of the water.
Most dryers sense moisture but I think they all will have a maximum run-time to prevent possible fires if the programmer fails to shut them down at the end of the drying cycle.
I would watch the machine and when it started the drying cycle, I would shut it off and check for surplus water that hadn't been pumped out as it should have been.
