SOURCE: Dryer will not Dry!

A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.

SOURCE: LG Senseclean washer dryer combo won't dry

The problem is likely due to lint build up in the condensing unit. I found a solution here:
http://www.motusconnect.com/blog/2009/1/5/lg-washer-dryer-drama-%E2%80%93-diy-fix

I also had a softball size ball of wet, packed lint in the condensing unit. I found that the unit can be cleaned without tools or dis-assembly by:

  1. draining the water.
  2. laying the washer on it's back.
  3. removing the hose clamp on the rubber bellows that connects the drum to the condensing unit (right hand side of machine).
  4. digging the lint wads out with your fingers and a small screwdriver.
Happy drying!

We have a wm3677hw LG washer/dryer combo. it goes into the dry cycle and keeps adding water. what is the problem. we have cleaned all the internal tubes. checked the lower heating element and it is not...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair.It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Smeg wdf1 washer dryer not drying clothes. Wash cycle fine but no heat produced when drying- any idea where to find/check the fuses/elements?


Hi, Take the top cover off and click the little red button on the thermostat/overload (small black box). Then try again. Sometimes these trip out as a safety precaution.

No heat not drying clothes


for safety reasons it has its own fuse and that may be your issue (new fuse $5)
To be safe i'd also get new thermostat ($15)

Dryer leaking water


it sounds to me like the heating element that heats up to dry the clothes has gone faulty or tripped out. Cant really tell from here.. when you open the drier is there a good level of heat ? If not, its the heating element section at fault.
