Question about Danby DCD5505W Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Hi FixYa, Selection of any drying program - after hitting the start button - will revert to the "Damp for machine ironing" position. It doesn't matter whether the control light indicates "Very Dry" or "Dry for Storage" or any other, once we hit "Start" it switches to "Damp for machine ironing". What to do? Thanks!

The first thing to try is to disconnect the vent hose, and run a drying cycle. If warm air comes out of the exhaust vent, the hose or the vent jack is blocked. If it does'nt warm the air, we need to find out why. Please post back with the result of this test, and we'll go from there.

How to clean sunbeam ultra 60 platinum iron. Can't find instruction booklet!!!!!


Do you mean the Sunbeam Ultura 60 Platinum iron? Wipe the exterior of the iron with a damp soft cloth and then dry the iron. To clean the steam valve, turn the Steam/Dry dial to Clean so that the tip pops up. Gently scrub the tip of the valve with a steel wool pad moistened with warm water. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Replace the valve and turn clockwise to lock into place (reset the dial to Dry when storing the iron). Clean the steam holes of any build up, use a cotton wool tip moistened with methylated spirits. The teflon plate should be cleaned with the damp soft cloth, just like the rest of the exterior of the iron. If you have ironed a polyester that melted onto the iron, then iron a damp cotton cloth when the iron is hot.

The manual for several Ultura irons, including the 60, is available here: http://www.sunbeam.com.au/Pages/Browse/ProductDetail.aspx?pid=1485 . The link for the manual is in the center of the page above the Image Gallery.

I hope this helps.

My washer is in french wdd960 how do i get it in english?


To change the language on the Hotpoint WDD960P/G/A/K washer dryer.
The official manual is slightly wrong!!
So Follow these steps:
With the machine in the "OFF" position (NO display) Simultaneously press and hold the Delay+Temp+Spin buttons until you hear a bleep and a language is displayed. Let go of the buttons and scroll to your desired language by pressing the "Spin" button until the language you want is displayed.
Inmediatly press the "Drying" button to select it and the display should say "Hello" to acknowledge the selection.
If you take too long in pressing "Drying" it reverts to the previous language.
Happy washings!!!

I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR6646BI-12 the clothes feel warm but not hot and they are still damp


The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
  1. Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
  2. If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.

  1. If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time.
Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
  1. Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)

  1. To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
  1. With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
  1. Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
Hope this works............

I have a Maytag Atlantis dryer with intellidry sensor. it will not heat up enough to dry clothes - it just is slightly warm. The sensor always says "damp"


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in dryer is usually caused due to three things - thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in plastic housing. If that’s fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Whirlpool model KUDSO1FL not starting cleaning


I fixed the problem by hitting Hi-Scrub then Economy Dry in sequence four times in a row. All of the lights came on, I am assuming to reset it the program, then went off and the start button was highlighted. I then pressed cancel and then selected the program that I wanted to wash with and pressed start. It worked like a charm.

My clean light keeps blinking and will not turn off or allow the start button to turn on.


Hi



Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring).
It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

LG Washing Machine All-in-One


Some magic happened today!

I got the thing (wd-12331ad) to dry without having to run a wash first!

Also, I seemed to get it to do a spin only run...

The way to get it to dry :
-----------------------------------
(for a set time - I've not managed to get any of the auto-dry settings to work)
from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the "Dry" button 'til "Time" lights up
>>> press "Dry" again to get the desired duration
> press the spin button 'til the spin speed shows blank/ the RPM light goes out.
> press "Start/Pause"

It will then dry for the number of minutes specified!

Not perfect, I know but that's serious progress from where I was before; having to re-run a wash cycle to get it to dry anything...

Something to note:
- The machine worryingly sounds like it's starting to fill with water when you start the "Just Dry" program which scared me at first. BUT it stops after a second or so (I think it's just cleaning out the detergent tray so it doesn't bake any leftover powder)


For "spin only" from machine being off:
-------------------------------------------------------
> press the power button.
> press the spin button
>>> if you press "Start/Pause" now you get a 13 minute 1200 spin cycle
>>> press the spin button again and then "Start/Pause", it seems to drain itself for 1 minute
>>> pressing spin repeatedly, cycles through the spin speeds.


Things I don't know:
----------------------------
- I don't know if you can combine spin and heat.
- I don't know whether the auto-dry programs are available
- I don't know what other programs are available from the "Dry"/"Spin" buttons

...So if anyone does any experimenting, please let us know the results, you never know, we might end up with a half way useful set of instructions! I'm starting to think the machine's not half as bad as it seems when following the manual alone.

Hope that helps.
