I just found this little site and I think the idea is really good, thank you to the creators!
Here, let me explain. We (I + Ms) have a washer/dryer which was kindly provided to us by beautiful mom. Aside from the fun side, the washing machine works very well!
However, the dryer about him never starts. To detail the situation a bit, think a programming system with a rotary switch giving you the possibility of a normal wash or fast, followed by drying (the button turns on the program in a clockwise direction). And yes, c is the good old family washing machine ^ ^.
So I tried to start the program with Timer drying, without timer, with the wash cycle before and without washing program. Nothing helps, the machine remains inert. His name? Siemens Wash & Dry 3100.
I read your post but if I ask the reference of your machine is that you gave the reference but not just the name of your machine :!!!!. it's like if you ask the technical details of your car and you do not give the commercial reference (I have a clio style.. yes but which one?? )
