I have an Ocean Washer/Dryer combo, and it's the best washer I've ever owned - it takes 3 hours to finish a wash cycle, but it produces amazing results. Thank god for European front-loading washers.
I only wish the dryer was half as good. It takes 3 hours to dry clothes to 95% dryness - my old White Westinghouse finished in 45 minutes.
I don't know if this has anything to do with the fact that it's a washer/dryer combo, but I'd like to make it hotter - a lot hotter.
It's an electric, front-loading Washer/Dryer combo. It does *not* have a ventilation pipe for the dryer, this one just uses a tube to get the water out.
It heats up, but obviously not enough. Is the fact that it doesn't have a ventilation pipe and instead relies on getting the liquid water out a testimony to the fact that it can't/wasn't meant to get hotter than it does now?
Basically, I'm looking to either tweak the voltage or replace the heating element with a more powerful model. Does anyone know if this is possible on a ventilation-less dryer?
BTW, who makes Ocean? I can't seem to find anything about it online, it's an Italian brand and it's not (in my experience) cheap quality.
