Troubleshooting Guide: Splendide® Combo Unit Not Drying Properly

Introduction: A Splendide® combo unit offers the convenience of a washer and dryer in one appliance, making it a popular choice for RV owners and small-space dwellers. However, if your Splendide® combo unit is not drying clothes effectively, it can be frustrating. This guide will help you troubleshoot the issue and get your combo unit back to drying your clothes efficiently.

Step 1: Check the Lint Filter

  1. Locate the lint filter, which is usually located inside the door or at the bottom of the unit.
  2. Remove any lint buildup from the filter using your fingers or a soft brush.
  3. Clean the filter with warm, soapy water and let it dry completely before reinserting it into the unit.

Step 2: Ensure Proper Ventilation

  1. Check that the exhaust vent is not blocked or restricted. Clear any debris or obstructions that may be preventing proper airflow.
  2. Ensure that the vent hose is not kinked or damaged, as this can restrict airflow and prevent proper drying.

Step 3: Check the Moisture Sensor

  1. Some Splendide combo units are equipped with a moisture sensor that detects when the clothes are dry. If this sensor is malfunctioning, it may cause the unit to stop drying prematurely.
  2. Clean the sensor with a soft cloth and ensure that it is free from lint or debris.

Step 4: Verify the Settings

  1. Ensure that the drying cycle is set to the appropriate temperature and time for the type of load you are drying.
  2. Avoid overloading the unit, as this can prevent proper airflow and drying.

Step 5: Inspect the Heating Element

  1. If the above steps do not resolve the issue, the heating element may be faulty.
  2. Consult the user manual for instructions on how to access and check the heating element. If it is damaged or defective, it will need to be replaced.

Step 6: Contact Customer Support

  1. If you have followed all the steps above and your Splendide ® combo unit is still not drying properly, it may be time to contact customer support or a professional technician for further assistance.
  2. Provide them with the model number and a detailed description of the issue so they can provide you with the best possible solution.

Conclusion: By following these troubleshooting steps, you can address common issues that may be causing your Splendide® combo unit to not dry clothes effectively. Regular maintenance and proper usage can help prevent these issues and keep your combo unit running smoothly for years to come.
