Question about Creda IWD12 Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Tumble dry is heating but takes forever to dry

The mmachine is no obviously broken in any way. The tumble drier is heating (so the element does not appear to be broken), but the clothes are not drying. Compared to a month ago when washing would fully dry in 1-2 hours, it now takes 12 hours to be left with damp clothes (obviously not leaving it on for that long - did it the once - Elec co's have enough money from us already). Is there anything that can be done to improve the efficency of the condensor??

    This model doesn't have an air duct. I believe it has a condenser, could the problem lie there and is it possible to clean them?

Check your air exhaust (including the lint filter) from the air duct connector (remove duct if necessary) on back of dryer to the exterior of the building. Somewhere, there must be air blockage.

Candy heat pump tumble dryer not collecting water and taking forever to dry!

Condenser dryers are simple in operation. They use a heater element to force hot air to heat the clothes and turn the water to steam. That steam is turned back into water by drawing cold air into the machine and over the heat exchanger unit and into the drum. The problems with them is that they are slow to dry.

Your best bet is to call for service, and the problem is likely the sensor probe or one of the thermal cut out.,111515&model_ref=14378839&page=2

tumble driers and combination washer driers have a 10 minute safety margin, where the heat fior drying is dispersed, to avoid people grabbing very hot clothing.. especially if it is not quite dry as this would make them, hotter to the touch.

A tumble dryer that isn't heating up at all needs checking with a continuity test meter. The most common cause is a heating element failure, or t.o.c's going open circuit. It depends on which make and model of tumble dryer you have as to how easy it is to get to the relevant parts. Some tumble dryers have heating elements that are easily accessible by removing the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious breakage. Others though have their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down. Tumble dryer heating elements are always protected by thermal fuses which are usually simple devices with 2 wires connected. They can be tested for continuity with a test meter
If power is getting to the tumble dryer and the socket is definitely OK, then the most common problem with tumble dryers not working is when the door micro switch fails, or the catch on the door that operates the switch either breaks or no longer activates the door switch. Check for broken door catches. There is usually a plastic peg on the door that pushes through a hole in the tumble dryer's casing where the door catch is. Closing the door should operate a simple micro switch. If the plastic peg is broken or bent it might not operate the switch properly
