Heroes. Echoes. Potatoes. Tomatoes.

It doesn't need a G to become 'es' at the end. Stop just guessing, NH

I'm not guessing, I'm clutching at straws, DareGod. Duh.

Do you clean the filters after each load and is the tank empty? Make sure the vent isn't blocked too.

TA at being kept on hold for 45 minutes on a premium rate number just to put in a service call for a glitchy appliance still under warranty

According to Dr Google.

Quote:
If a words ends in consonant + O then we sometimes add -s or -es. No rules for this - you just have to learn them or use a dictionary. but hero/heroes, potato/potatoes, volcano/volcanoes, tomato/tomatoes.

It’s a washer dryer actually, not sure if it’s a condenser one but anyway, my point still stands

If it's a washer dryer combo it probably doesn't have a tank but it sounds like the air isn't circulating so I'd make sure the filters are clean. You have to be very careful to do that, not cleaning the filters is a fire hazard.

Always clean the filter Kitty. It’s a huge fire risk !

I know somebody with a condenser dryer and it may be a tad slower it shouldn't take that long I'd say!

Just get a normal dryer and use a basin if you can't plumb it. There doesn't be that much water from a full load.

This morning I woke up with a sore throat and have felt like crap all day long. And I had a work related course which I couldn't miss and which lasted from 8 to 4, stuck in a hot conference room, no air con. and they wouldn't open a window cause some of them felt cold! Oh, the misery.

I am now on my 3rd hot toddy and I feel no shame.

Also, be careful with those dryers. I threw everything into one 2 weeks ago and pressed the button, walking away smugly having done my day's housework. That evening when herself came back she walked into me with mini versions of some formerly really nice jumpers. I sort of imagined myself in them when I was 4, and she looked at me as if I were 4.

I, of course, asked her what she did to my formerly nice clothes and she showed me labels on the clothes that weren't just saying "Made in Indonesia", as I always surmised they did, but they had labels on how to dry each piece of clothing. That was a good idea, in fairness. You also have to move the button on the dryer because that can also make your clothes really small. Every day's a school day, as they say.
