Dryer not drying clothes

Issue description:

Washing in an automatic machine will surprise nobody for a long time, but drying is a rarer option. But more and more housewives are choosing a convenient unit, which after washing gives out dry clean clothes.

You get used to good things quickly, so the situation when the drying does not work in the washing machine becomes a complete surprise. There are three possible options:

the machine does not start drying

stops and interrupts the drying program

drying runs for the prescribed time, but the laundry is underdried or obviously damp

The washing machine may not perform the drying cycle for various reasons, and some of them are not related to equipment breakdown.

Dryer not drying clothes

Solution:

A program without drying has been selected. You could have set a standard washing program without drying. This means that the machine will honestly work out the program and stop. In this case, it will not start to dry the laundry, and you will be surprised why it is wet.

Weight overload of the laundry. Often, owners of AGR with drying forget that the machine can wash one weight, for example 5-6 kg maximum, and dry about 2 times less, from 3 to 4 kg. If you have loaded the laundry to the eyeballs at the wash, then the machine will "refuse" to dry, having detected an overload.

In the case when you start drying separately, the CMA simply will not start the cycle. Especially if you have a new washer-dryer with a smart drum that can weigh the laundry.

The drain filter is clogged. The washing machine cannot completely drain the water, therefore drying does not start.

The door of the machine is not closed. Check if the hatch is tightly closed. If it is not closed, the machine will refuse to work and will show a door lock error.

The laundry is not wrung out well, therefore the machine cannot dry it completely.

You were drying multi-layered items. The washer-dryer does not dry well the laundry consisting of several layers of fabric, for example, blankets, bedspreads with a liner, pile items.

Iron-dry mode is selected. In this mode, slightly damp laundry is normal. The washing machine deliberately does not dry the laundry to make it easier to iron.

The selected drying program does not match the type of laundry. For example, cotton clothes take longer to dry than synthetic materials.

High temperature and humidity indoors. During drying, hot air evaporates moisture from the laundry, which is condensed in a special tank and then removed to the drain. But, if the room where the machine is located is too damp and hot (temperatures above 30 degrees), condensation will take place more slowly. This will make the laundry less dry.

Low voltage in the mains. It must be at least 200 volts. When washing, one heating element works, and when drying, most often two. Therefore, the demand for electricity is higher, as are the requirements for the amount of voltage. If the machine is plugged into a "loose" socket or the line is worn out (old wiring), the SMA will operate at the minimum power of heating elements, which will not warm the air to the required temperature.

Air filter clogged. It retains threads, lint, and pet hair that are blown out of the linen when drying. The filter protects the machine from debris, but also needs to be cleaned. Remember the filter of the vacuum cleaner, if it is not cleaned in time, the vacuum cleaner starts humming and does not work well. The situation is the same in the car.

The water supply valve to the machine is closed. Oddly enough, but for normal drying you need water. It is required to cool the condensate. In some models, water is also used to self-clean the drum from lint during the drying process. If you need help with dryer repair, call us right now!
