<<<Customer complains no there is no drying.>>>

 

*************

 

Could mean that the dry cycle is not drying adequately---or---that there's an error "dHE" displayed.

 

If a "dHE" error is triggered---remove the top covers (2) of the combo.

 

Usually the red thermostat wire on the Heater Housing came off---due to bumping into the Detergent Dispenser Housing during the spin cycle.

Re-attach the red wire and rotate/turn the Thermostat---to prevent a repeat (moves red wire connector further away from Dispenser).

 

If the symptom is "not drying but clothing gets hot"...

 

Remove the BLOWER MOTOR and the DUCT--- clean/remove all lint accumulation.

 

Replace the COLD WATER VALVE and the DRAIN MOTOR.

 

Tell the customer in doing this---the washer/dryer combo is good for another 5 years...

Added part links.

To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
