Washer dryer not heating up? Washer dryers that are not heating up on the drying side are a common fault. this video will show you how to find the fault or faults and repair the washing machine this tutorial is good on Ariston, Creda, Hotpoint, Indesit, new world and Scholtes

Front loading combination washer dryers are vent-less and are called condenser dryers The washing machine heats the air via the dryer heater and a fan then forces hot air through the clothing into the outer drum where a condensation process cools the now hot moist air, this condenses the water vapour using a cool water feed to help condense the vapour. The water is then flushed out by the pump through the drain hose to the sink or through the plumbing lines.

These units are easy to install under cabinets, in closets or anywhere with electricity because of their lack of vents and are very common but are not as efficient as the vented dryers and will not normally dry the amount of clothing that you fit into wash. I suggest always drying small amounts as the air flows through the clothing better and dries them faster.

The parts that normally fail most often are in order of failure rate.

Common terms used for this type of problem on Ariston, Creda, Hotpoint, Indesit, New world and Scholtes washing machines are:

Washer dryer not heating up, washing machine not drying the clothes, washer dryer not drying, Hotpoint washer dryer not drying, Ariston washer dryer not drying, washer dryer not drying properly, Indesit washer dryer not drying.

    Excellent guide, we have not been using the drying function on our Indent washer dryer for two years. Found the fault was the thermal cutout – One question though; is there anything I can do to prevent the thermal cutout blowing?
    Thanks for the guide!
