Hello all. I'm struggling to repair my Indesit IWDD 6105 B ECO UK model washer dryer which displayed F13 error code last time it ran. Since first spotting the error, I have tried following all good advice available online. I've opened the top lid and undone the heating tunnel. Fan looks to be in bad shape. I suspected the NTC sensor first, but its resistance readings seem close to what others have seen (~20k ohms) and it is responding to rising temperature. When I tried rotating the fan (while still attached to its motor), it seemed to have quite a bit of friction - maybe it was tightened too close to the tunnel shell, making motor run slower than normal. Barring that, I do not have any line of reasoning for the burnt fan. Also, i can spot lint residue in the fan inlet. Any help suggesting next steps would be helpful. - Abhi
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.
