Question about Hotpoint Dryers

1 Answer

Took my Hotpoint VTD60 apart - cleaned out enough fluff from inside machine to stuff a horse... the Drum is now turning again - HOWEVER ... Could you explain how the Drum is meant to be secured at the back?. It looks like a very short spindle is meant to sit in a hole in the back panel. I think a silver washer that fell out sits over this short spindle/ Problem is that the spindle keeps falling out and the drum ribs against the panels

You need a rear drum bearing kit. Go to any online parts source such as partsselect.com and do a search using your model # to see exact part and a reasonable price you look to spend on the part. I hope this helps you.

Error code f-13


Do u want to resolve the f-13 fault code ON HOTPOINT WD860 Ultima and other models.
Fix the fault . It is a tricky job but the heater thermostat switch has tripped as it senses something burning. Probably a little bit of fluff on the heater element inside the heater unit.. There are 2 switches on top of this heater unit. One where the 2 blue wires go on the top left of the 3rd picture and the other which has a tall black wire connector on shown in the middle of the 3rd picture. Remove that connector and undo the holding screw . You can then reset the switch. The switch is a small circular switch hidden beneather the connector on the photos. This thermostat switch has a yellow. red dot ontop of it. If you use a small pin or needle and press into that dot you will hear it tick back into place. you have reset the switch now. You will probably need to clean the inside of the heater element unit to get rid of the fluff particles or it will keep switching off. To take this apart you will need a set of Star screwdrivers. Its a bit tricky but you will be able to undo the star screws and take them all out. I will add some photos to show you the unit apart. You can see the build up of fluff on the photos i have added from my hotpoint WD860 heater unit. This is a tricky job and takes about an hour due to the screw being awkward to take off and put on again but mine hasnt faulted for 2 years since sorting it out. You can buy a new Thermostat switch which is about 10 pounds sterling from Hotpoint or other spares stores. error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-0.jpg error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-2.jpg error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-5.jpg error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-9.jpg error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-14.jpg error-code-f-13-04t3bj0jgktmuqmnt3s3ejb0-2-20.jpg

F:13 COMES UP ON THE DISPLAY WHEN THE CYCLE FINISHES. YOU HAVE TO TURN OFF THE MACHINE WHEN IT F:13 IS DISPLAYED AND IT TAKES A WHILE FOR THE DISPLAY TO COME BACK IN THE MACHINE AGAIN.


f13 is a Dispenser circuit error

If the dispenser motor is not able to be driven to it's proper position.

Check mechanical linkage from dispenser motor to the top of the dispenser.

Check Wire Harness connections to the dispenser motor and Central Control Unit (CCU)

Check Dispenser Motor

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Got lots of fluff under the drum


You will find the filter at the rear of washer..
Remove rear lower panel, on right you will see a large black hose that goes to the bottom of drum,
Undo clip that secures hose, and remove hose, be careful as there will be some water run out.
Remove plastic filter and ball inside hose, and clean filter, replace and fit hose back onto tub, making sure it is on properly.
Test for leaks before you refit rear panel back on.
You may have to repeat the process more than once if there is a lot of fluff present.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

Hotpoint Aquarius WD22 Dryer functions, as in turns and blows, but NO hot air


The only thoughts that spring to mind, are either...

A: The dryer heater has packed up.

B: The tube/funnel that the air flows through to the drum is blocked with fluff.

In either case you'll need to take the lid and sides off, locate the dryer duct then find a way of opening it to clean the fluff out.

If you need any more help, message me.

Dryer squeaks when I use it


Hi, I had a squeaky Zanussi TC482W. Had it apart (easy to do) by taking the back off. Cleaned out fluff from around the drum and greased the rear bearing. Reduced the amount of squeak but still there. Took it apart again and almost by accident discovered that the bearing that the shaft at the rear of the drum sits in is actually in two parts. The actual bearing is shaped like the olive you get in plumbing compression joints and should be free to swivvle in the housing to allow some flexibility in drum rotation. A squirt of WD40 and some gentle wiggling with a piece of dowel soon had it free and its now flexible enough to take up the slight movement of the drum about its axis . Problem solved.
