Fixing Splendide Washer/Dryer Combo

We have been fairly happy with our Splendide washer/dryer combo and were even planning on doing a full review but decided to put that off until we were able to troubleshoot some issues we had come across. We had noticed that the dry times seemed to be taking longer than usual which made us suspect a possible lint blockage. Additionally, over the past week or two it has been shutting itself off and giving diagnostic codes during the dry cycles. We suspect that the lint blockage was caused by the type of exhaust flap we installed to keep the cold winter air from creeping into the house. Once we change the flap, we’ll be sure to follow up on whether or not the issue was completely resolved.

**Update** The washer/dryer does seem to be working normally now.


  1. Had error codes with my splendide during dry cycle also. Try this it works!!
    1. Make sure dryer is set to off
    2 turn to wash cycle # 11
    3 when washer stops filling hold start button until ALL lights are on
    4 release button turn to cycle # 2
    5 push the extra rinse button
    6 push start button
    Resolved my drying error codes. Let me also say I tried only doing this two times and yes it helped but within a week or so but error codes returned. 3 times is what is needed.
    I know this is time consuming but it really works. We have had a splendid combo for over 12 years. My husband is 76 and I will be 70 this year. We are full time RVers.
    Would love to take credit for this but I obtained this info from Splendid.
    If you would please let me know. Hope this helps.

      Hi Mary,

      We haven’t had any other issues with the machine. After pulling out the lint it worked fine for almost a year, then it started to take longer to dry again. I removed the lint again from this area and the machine is back to working fine. I think it is just something I will have to do approximately once a year.

      It sounds like your issue is slightly different then what we are experiencing but if we ever get error codes and this lint trick doesn’t work I will give your suggestion a try.

      Thanks for sharing!
