Question about Smeg WDF16BAX Front Load Washer / Dryer

Open Question

Hi I have a SMEG Washer Dryer WDI12C1 which is not drying clothes. I have removed the top and have pressed the red reset thermostat. I can feel heat coming from a part wrapped in an insulating jacket that the thermostat is connected to but no heat seems to be getting to the drum. Any advice please/

SOURCE: Washer/Dryer is not spinning

Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

Sometimes this can happen when the connector from the transmission to the drive of the agitator is worn and needs to be replaced.Similar to the drive shaft of a rear wheel drive v-8 car!

Could make this sound first, like a knock,knock,knock or klack, klack,klack
OR,SOMETIMES JUST NO SOUND AT ALL AND JUST NOT CONNECTED FROM THE TRANSMISSION TO DRIVE THE ROTATION OF THE TUB!
This means you need parts! and service!
How old is the washer if it is 10 years old or more I recommend being prudish about investing a lot of money in to it!
The newer models are so much more energy efficient, that they save you water,gas or electricity And detergent too!
They can pay for them selves in energy savings in a few years!


If so here is a good company that's found nation wide.
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!

SOURCE: drying operation on WD16BA on smeg dryer

I think all you have to do (that's how I do it anyway), is turn the program knob so that the line is at the beginning of the drying stage (the little 'sun'), having first of course chosen the desired amount of drying time with the knob on the far left...
Hope this helps, good luck...

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.

Cmd146 dryer heating top chamber but not in drum


It sounds as though the fan motor is faulty, usually these motors distribute the heat from the heater box into the drum. Because the heater box is getting hot I doubt if the fault is the thermostat so it may well be the motor or associated wiring

We have a Bosch WTA Electric Vented Dryer - bought in 2003. Today - after putting in a load of wash from the washer, there was no heat to dry the clothes. I tried the automatic feature (which I regularly...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what I've read of your post..."no heat to dry the clothes. I tried the automatic feature (which I regularly use) and I also tried the timed feature. Neither of these provided heat to dry the clothes."

I'd certainly suspect the hi-limit thermostat is tripped if it is indeed a WTA series Bosch. I'm not clear as to whether or not you located the hi-limit safety, reset it, or ruled it out so I'm going to explain what to look for and what to do when you get there.

**Unplug the unit from the wall or switch off the breaker...safety first**

Once the dryer has been disconnected from any power, remove the rear panel...

i.e.

7209371.jpg
Once the panel has successfully been removed, you'll see the heater with the Hi-Limit and NTC attached. The Hi-limit is the thermostat with the red button in the center...

i.e.

03efa1a.jpg
push it in to reset it. As you can see by the images I've provided, if you have a multi-meter or ohm meter you can verify the proper values of the listed components.

If the hi-limit is tripped, obviously something triggered it, you can check the possible culprits such as the NTC's or heater with the info I provided above as I alluded to.

( Even so, I'd suggest running it through a cycle or two and monitor it's performance, it may have tripped simply due to poor air flow from a large load etc. and therefore nothing is actually wrong...human error )

You may run the dryer momentarily without the rear panel in place provided nothing electrical has been disconnected, don't attempt an entire cycle, just witness the heater functioning, but it isn't recommended for much longer than a minute or two.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and please let me know what you find out or if you indeed require further assistance. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Whirlpool washer takes long time to dry clothes.


A dryer ( Whirlpool ) , either heats or no heat . If it heats , then the vent is partially clogged , either in the hose , or between the dryer and the outside . Disconnect the vent , and dry a load , checking the air flow . If good , then to the outside is restricted .

Hotpoint washer dryer not drying clothes


Sounds like you have a ventalation problem. The clothes heat up, but without airflow, the moisture remains. First check the hose from the back of the dryer to the wall. Is it plugged, kinked, or restricted? No? Turn your dryer on and remove the hose. Do you feel pressure coming from the back of the unit? No? You need to take it apart and clean the internal airway. If you do feel pressure, reconnect it to the wall and start your dryer. Walk to the outside of the house. Do you feel a fair amount of air coming out? No? There are companies that will clean your vent in the phone book. There are also vent cleaning brushes you can buy at hardware and appliance part stores.

Washes clothes fine, drying cycle no heat


Hi, I have a Hotpoint WD640 myself and funnily enough I have the same problem. Knowing a tiny bit about washing machines you will probably find that your heating element from the dryer has stopped working. If you can still wash clothes that means that your other heating element for the washing is fine and that your thermostat for the machine is also working. If you need to buy a dryer component may I suggest 4hotpoint.co.uk, I have just bought an element from them and it cost me £27.99 including tax and P&P. May I also suggest that you get a suitably qualified or competant (not saying that you are not) person to fit the element for you as you do not want anything to go wrong with your washing machine. Hope this helps :o)
