  1. Hello, I have an eight year old Hoover washer/condenser dryer (VH W654D-80) which has recently developed a knocking noise on fast spin after my daughter badly overloaded it. However Ii had been moving around a bit more than usual prior to this. I don't think it is bearings or spider, but the shock absorbers might be soft and need replacing. Where the noise seems to be coming from is a part of the dryer at the top of the machine which is lose. I believe this is the heater fan, (and coincidentally the dryer trip switches cut the circuit any time the dryer is used so I suppose the unit is broken, it is certianly stiff and dry to turn), and there are two accessible bolts, but these don't hold it on and removing them doesn't release it. I think I need to lift the top part to access and tighten the bolts which do actually hold it down. Can anyone advise me how to do this please? I have just found a video online https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7aOO702DCg with a very similar machine with a defective heater but he isn't dealing with the fan itself, though it looks like I might have to remove the top of the heater to release the fan? Any advise would be most welcome, thanks.
  2. Hi, I have a Bosch heat pump ECOLOGIXX 7 dryer. I have to run the cycle at least twice for the clothes to be dried and sometimes a 3rd time if they are still slightly damp. The water tank is emptied after each use, the blue filter on it to is rinsed. The filters are hoovered after each load too. Any advice appreciated. Model is a WTW86560GB
  3. I have a BEKO WDX8543130. Over the last 2 weeks the drying function has not been working properly. It washes fine. Then we set it to cupboard dry. It sometimes needs a bit longer so we set it to dry a bit more. After the cycle has finished it comes out soaking wet. It's happened about 5-10 times now. Anyone experienced this before?
  4. It's a July-2015 washer-dryer. Clothes often come out more dirty than they came in. They are covered with some very fine gray fiber that we take off using a roller sticker. We tried: - Cleaning the big rubber seal of the door - Cleaning the pump's filter (the one you have to pop the front lower lid off and turn it out, it was actually quite clean) - Running the secret "A+B for 7 seconds" self-cleaning cycle - Running an empty wash with washing machine cleaner We get the fluffy stuff even if we don't run a dryer. We are careful not to put lint-generating clothes in it (but maybe my lodger did that before). It feels as if there is something that's storing this fuzz and it needs to be cleaned. I am wondering if I can do it myself because I live in Newbury and it's an "all you can rip off buffet" for tradesmen here (our neighbor Reading has 2 or 3 times cheaper tradesmen). Thanks for any ideas.
  5. Hi everyone, I'm wondering if you can help me please. I have a Hotpoint WDL520 Aquarius. As of today, the dryer isn't working properly. Clothes are coming out hot and wet, and steam billows out when you open the door. I've read several other topics, and looked in the FAQ section, but I don't think any of them apply. The drum is turning, and I can hear water running as normal when the dryer starts (the second or so of running water you hear then stops and the dry cycle starts) so I'm thinking that it's not a problem with the solenoid that supplies cold water, would I be correct? Is there any other fault or part that causes this problem? Hopefully something I can fix myself! I have a multimeter, so I can test the solenoid at the same time as other options if this is necessary. I'm just a little unsure of how to test it. Also, do I need to get the cover off to do so, or is it accessible from the outside of the machine? I'm not at home right now, and I've been asked (ordered) to fix it tomorrow, so I can't actually look at the machine, I've just gone through a few things over the phone, that's how I know that some kind of water is still running when a dry cycle is started. Thanks for your help! Andy
  6. Help please ? I have just acquired from my daughter (who has just installed a built under washer/dryer in a newly re fitted kitchen) an approximately 1 year old LG WD-12331 AD washer dryer. Having scoured the manual, it appears the dryer only works on the synthetic and cotton wash cycles. This is not a problem, but what seems to be a serious omission is the ability to use the dryer, without going through an entire wash cycle. Several times, because I have wanted to dry clothes a bit more than on an automatic programme, I have ended up going through an entire wash cycle a second time - really annoying and time consuming also, not at all enviromentally friendly! Does anyone know of a workaround to the above please?
  7. I have a bosch exxcel washer dryer, around 4 years old. It has been getting stuck at the end of the cycle on 1 minute on most cycles, but always works on super quick programme with no problems. Over the weekend, even the super quick is failing to drain the water away, with water sat in the drum. The filter is clear. Out of curiosity, I disconnected the waste pipe from its normal drain point (it is normally connected to the u-bend of the waste pipe from the kitchen sink). The trap and pipework are clear, and and although there is a bit of gunk on the inside of the hose - it appears to be clear. The sink drains very rapidly - i.e. if I fill it and take the plug out it is free draining, so I dont think this is the problem. I then placed the hose in a bucket on the floor and ran the normal cycle - and hey presto - it completed the cycles without stopping/hanging. Could it be the pump ?- I am wondering if placing the hose in the bucket allows the pump to discharge more freely - I did notice that when the drum discharged quite a lot of the grey gunk lining the waste hose was flushed out. Also if the bucket is on the floor then presumably the pump requires less effort to discharge to water? Would it be better to have a dedicated waste outlet rather than inlet boss on side of sink waste? Should be an issue since it has worked fine for 4 years Or is it something else? I ran the machine on 90 deg C cycle as well, and there is no issue with heater. I
