Washer Dryer Not Drying
For many people washing laundry is a daily occurrence - washer dryer machines are designed to make your life that much easier. With all your favourite outfits for special occasions, work attire and casuals a working washer dryer is key to keeping yourself looking your best.
If your washer dryer has finished drying but left your garments wet we can help! There are a few simple tests you can do: see if the drying load is not overloaded, inspect the filter for blockages and make sure the spin cycle is set high enough to remove excess water.
If everything seems fine, follow this article to get your laundry dry without having to worry about the extortionate call out costs.
A common cause of a washer dryer not drying may be the heater element. Depending on your model, most washers have two heating elements that are secured inside a metal housing.
Safety First! Please make sure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before beginning any repair.
- Remove the lid on the washer dryer and disconnect one of the electrical connectors.
- Inspect the element for visual signs of damage.
- The ideal resistance reading is anywhere between 25 and 150 ohms. If you get a result of zero or excessively higher then the element will be faulty.
If the element is defective a replacement will be required to get your appliance working again. For a spare heater - see our range of washer dryers spares here.
