it is electric.
there is no vent hose: it is a condenser dryer.
The only hose out is the waste water hose.
thanks for your answer. Before deciding how to proceed I would like to know what is involved in doing this myself. What kind of tools would I need?
How long a job is it?
if you would be so kind as to outline the disassembly procedure for my model, I'll consider whether I want to tackle it myself and if so when I will have time.
Hmm, probably not - not at the moment anyway. I am weighing the risk of not having working washing machine at all vs the benefit of getting the dryer functioning again. I really need a washing machine, while the dryer is a nice bonus!
Could you give me your best guess as to what a professional would charge for such a job?
I live in France but a UK price will do just to get a rough feel.
