Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD640 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Drying cycle runs but does not dry clothes

After washing one evening, the clothes had almost stuck to the outside of the drum during the spin cycle. Subsequently when drying later I noticed the machine making a funny sound - I stopped and checked the load to find that there was a burning smell - I am presuming that the drying element may have burnt out due to the fact that no air could enter the drum because the clothes were stuck in the drum holes?? If anyone could advise if this is the case and the element needs replacing or if something else has burnt out?? Currently the drying cycle runs but the clothes are still wet afterwards? Regards Martin

Electrolux EWW1141AESA Washer-Dryer isn't drying

If it is new, contact the seller under warranty. This model is only available in Saudi Arabia, we are in North America. According to the specs, it is a condenser dryer with no vent to outside. These do take longer to dry, but they should dry eventually.

Thor laundry system won't dry clothes I have a thor no venting washer/dryer combo machine, that has been working fine for years. Suddenly it is not drying clothes and instead, clothes are soaking wet...

I am having the same problem on a WD9900A. The wash cycle works great. Spins fast and clothes are completely rung out. Dryer cycle heats up well. Fluffs and heats cloths. At some point during dry cycle water is injected on clothes and they end up sopping wet; much wetter than after wash. Filter is clear. Outlet pipe clear and functions well. Possible problem with dryer timer? Or washer timing kicking back on?

I have a Kenmore frontloading washer, model no. 417.42042100. At the end of the wash cycle, the clothes are still very wet; that is, still SOAKED with water, even though all the water has been drained...

HI. your unit is equipped with a spin control board. this board, if damaged, will not initiate an adequate spin. This will not allow for proper drainage and drying of the clothes. The spin motor regulates the rotation speed during the spin cycle. It seems to be the culprit at this time. Have the spin board replaced asap.

This part will usually cost around $150.00 at the most.

My LG TROM wash googd but dosn't want to spin

Check and see what type detergent you are using. I bought regular liquid detergent and the machine began making noise during the spin cycle and the drum would not spin. I was informed that you have to use detergent that is labeled HE (High Efficiency). The regular liquid detergent will suds up during the wash cycle which then causes the drum to slip and not spin during the spin cycle. What you are hearing during the spin cycle is the drum slipping. Unplug your washer for 30 minutes and let it reset. This lets the suds dry out. Run a cycle with no spin to rinse out the drum. This should eliminate your problem. If you have clothes in the machine, run a cycle with no spin, just don’t add any more detergent. Then run the normal cycle with spin a second time with no detergent. I hope this cures your problem.
