Operation Of A Condensing Dryer

The washer dryer combo offers many improvements in this method of drying. The condensing chamber (b) is located outside of the tub assembly, reducing the amount of heat

to overcome. This allows for more cooling of the circulated air.

The air inside the unit is completely recycled and never escapes the unit. This eliminates the need for constantly heating cool outside air as is necessary with traditional flow-through (vented) dryers, resulting in reduced energy consumption.

In a properly designed “ventless” system it is physically impossible for any air (steam) to escape the unit because the intake of the fan must equal the output. The only way air can be forced from

the unit is for additional outside air to be drawn into the system, creating a positive pressure.

In a ventless system the cool air is passed over the heater assembly and injected into the drum creating steam within the unit. The hot, moist air is then drawn from the drum of the unit and passed through the condensing chamber where it is subjected to the cooling effect of the condensing spray, and the water is condensed out of the air and collected.

(The effect is similar to having a glass of ice

water sitting on a table and condensation starts to puddle). The air is then reheated and sent back into the drum to absorb more moisture. This cycle is repeated until all moisture is removed from the air stream.

During the drying cycle water is flowing through the baffle system of the condenser assembly at a minimal rate. This cooling water is collected along with the condensation and pumped out of the system by the washer pump. Below is a sketch of the air flow through a ventless system.

Detergent Guide

How to choose and use the right detergent

First, use only detergent specifically made for use in front load washers. Other types will cause over sudsing.

Second, use only low sudsing powder or liquid detergent. Performance of this machine will be adversely effected if high suds detergents are used. Third, check your water hardness. If your water is hard (7 grains or more) your detergent has to work harder.

Your water department can tell you how hard your water is. So can your county extension agent or your area’s water softener company. Just call and ask them how many grains of hardness are in your water.

How much detergent do you use? That depends. Is your water hard or soft? With hard water you need extra detergent to get your clothes clean. With soft water you need less detergent. Too much detergent can be harmful-potentially causing serious problems with your washer dryer. For this reason, it is always best to find out your water hardness and adjust your detergent usage.

Keep your detergent fresh. Under the sink isn't a good place to store detergent. Too much moisture will cause the powder to cake.

If your powder detergent gets older or lumpy throw it away. It won’t wash well. Old detergent often won’t dissolve. If you use a liquid detergent these precautions are not necessary because liquid detergents don’t lump as they age or come in contact with water.

You will find four compartments in your Washer Dryer dispenser. Pre-wash, Wash, Softener, Bleach.

Front load machines need much lless detergent than top load washing machines.

Follow detergent manufacturer instructions for front load machines. Detergent is flushed automatically into the drum from the detergent dispenser. Over sudsing will cause your unit to malfunction. Suds may rise through detergent dispenser and may spill on your floor, so, be very careful in choosing the detergent quantity based on laundry load, fabric type and soil/stain conditions.

Always choose a low sud detergent for this machine.

Bleach Recommendation

Always dilute bleach before using.

Excessive/ Frequent use of bleach can damage clothes.

Bleaching Whitens clothes, removes problem stains, deodorizes & sanitizes.

Use discretely and always follow bleach manufacturer instructions.

Do not add bleach while rinsing. Pour bleach in detergent dispenser 3.

Do not overfill bleach. This can damage clothes.

Fabric Softener Recommendation

All fabrics benefit by the use of softeners. We recommend use of softener to reduce the "clinging" effect in synthetics and make laundry feel soft. Pour the softener in detergent dispenser 4. Do not overfill. Excessive use of softener may affect wash results. Always follow softener manufacturer instructions.

Care and Cleaning

! Unplug electric power cord before cleaning washer dryer to avoid shock.

Cleaning the Exterior

Use a soft damp cloth or sponge to wipe up any spills. Occasionally wipe the outside of your unit to keep it looking new.

Cleaning the Interior

The drum is made of stainless steel so it will no rust. However, specks of rust can be caused by small metal articles like safety pins, paper clips or belt buckles washed in the washer dryer. The drum should be cleaned regularly. Not cleaning the drum may lead to a build up of scale

clogs, limescale and dirt leading to replacement. Clean the drum by using chlorine bleach. Mix one cup of bleach and two scoops or caps of detergent. Pour this into detergent drawer

compartment two. Choose automatic wash program, rotate Wash program knob to position four. Rotate Water Temperature knob to 140 ºF position. Push Power button to start. Repeat if necessary. To remove hard water deposits or scales, use washer safe labeled cleaners. Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth. Apply a liquid nonflammable household cleaner to stained areas and wipe with a soft cloth to remove stains or colors. Never use steel wool. Use descaling agents suitable for use on stainless steel. Some descalers contain chemical components that can attack parts of your washer dryer.

Be careful in selecting the right descaler. After cleaning run a cycle with plain water to remove any residual agents before inserting laundry.

Water Inlet Hose

Replace hose after five years of use to reduce risk of hose failure. Periodically inspect and replace if bulges, kinks, cuts, wear or leaks are found. Mark the date of replacement on the hose with a permanent marker.

Lint Filter

! To avoid water spills during removal of lint filter, place a bowl or tray under filter assembly.

The lint filter is located at the bottom right corner. Always run the unit on spin mode before removing the lint filter to drain away residual water. Place a bowl or tray under the lint filter area to catch any residual water. We recommend this strongly to avoid water spills on your floor. Open the bottom panel. Unscrew and remove the lint filter. Run water on the filter to clean away detergent or softener residue. Rinse with hot water, dry using a clean towel and reinsert the filter back. Turn it clock wise and lock it in

position. We recommend cleaning after every 25 full loads. It is not necessary to clean the lint filter after every load.

Detergent Drawer

Pull the detergent drawer out. Wash all compartments under running water. Clean the recess with an old toothbrush. Make sure all detergent accumulations are removed. Use a jet of running hot water to flush out residues. Replace the drawer and run a rinse cycle without laundry.

Child Safe Door

An electromechanical safety device in the door prevents it from opening during operation. Door will not open until the unit is shut down and the power button is turned off.

Washer Motor

A thermal safety device protects the motor from overload or underload giving the motor long life.


A safety thermostat prevents excessive water temperature. Water will not heat if the water level is inadequate, water from the tap stops flowing or the tap is not turned ON. The machine will not start if prescribed water level is not available.

Water Spills

The filling valve stops if the water inlet filter is clogged or if the drain pump motor malfunctions. This protects your flooring, carpets, and rugs from water spills.

Safe Areas

By design, access is denied to children/adults reaching into the door or touching the pump motor filter while the unit is ON.


A safety fuse built into the unit prevents excessive electrical overload.


Your washer dryer plug is equipped with a grounding terminals to protect against leakage currents. System and equipment are both grounded by two prongs in the plug.

Fabric Care

Care Label Guide

The following information is provided by U.S. Federal Trade Commission as part of Project Clean. The symbols appearing on garment labels provide care instructions from the garment manufacturer. These symbols seen on the fabric serve as minimum laundering instructions to indicate washing, bleaching, drying, ironing and dry cleaning. Additional symbols or words or both may be used to clarify the instructions.

The water temperatures listed below are provided as a guideline. Actual water temperatures obtained in the home depend on washing machine settings, regional supply temperatures and water heater settings.

? It’s time to wash

new clothes that you brought last week and you don’t undestand a care label?



Care information tags are available on most clothes sold in the United States. These written instructions normally give a single care method for your garment. When an international care symbol tag is also present, all cara methods will usually be shown. We

are happy to present the international symbol guide as a handy reference to

help you select a correct wash and dry program that supports the care method prescribed by the garment manufacturer.
