  • Washer Dryer - Hot & Steamy drying result

    Re. Hotpoint WDD960 Washer Dryer.
    On Dry programme, clothes come out hot and steamy - usually - not always. Intermittent fault. Sometimes does not pump out.

    But Dry works ok when set up as continuation of Wash or Spin programme.

    What is going on ?. Any advice appreciated.

    Re: Washer Dryer - Hot & Steamy drying result

    Dryer needs a few things to work properly. You have heat so the element is ok.
    You need airflow. Over time the condenser and or the fan can clog up reducing and ultimately stopping the air flow.
    Water. To be able to condense the steam back into water the machine uses a trickle of cold water. If this valve does no open for any reason the clothes will be hot and steamy but not dry

      Intermittent fault - clothes come out hot/steamy/wet/damp.
      Usually on Dry programme - usually ok on Spin + Dry programmes.

      - Why is it doing this at all
      - Why intermittent ?
      - Why are results on Dry programme different from result on Spin + Dry
      programmes ?.

      Very odd !!

      PS. recently tried replacing pcb-main control board/unit - made no difference.

        But why would the fault be intermittent ?.
        Why does Dryer work ok on Spin + Dry programme - and not on Dry programme ?.

          short answer to your question is I don't know why it works on one but not the other

          one question is where did you get the new board from ?

          reason I ask is these days new boards are blank and have to be programmed. If you buy a second hand board off Ebay even with the same model it may have different software installed

          I have also merged your posts as duplication does not make sense
