Frigidaire washer dryer combo with 2 issues. The dryer takes

This answer was rated:

Frigidaire washer dryer combo with 2 issues. The dryer takes about 80 mins on high heat to dry 2 pairs of jeans, 3 tshirts and some underwear. Drum is 1/2 full. Is that reasonable?

Also when I try to wash a load with hot water, it starts with hot water and then start switching back and forth to (I think) warm water. The end result is the warmest water I can wash with is cool.

It does seem to be pretty hot (the clothes). I did pull it out and vacuum out the hose and pipe going outside. Its about a 12 foot run.

okay try this . remove the vent from the dryer completely and try a load. let me know if it dries. ,,, As far as the washer goes its the fill valve thats bad. these valves have a sensor on them that is supposed to sense the water temp and adjust it accordingly. Water Inlet ValveNNN-NN-NNNN      Main Product Viewthis would need to be replaced. heres a link to that part. let me know if the dryer works better with the vent off.
