Condenser sensor dryer not very hot

My dryer is only a few months old but is nothing like as hot as the one that it replaced. Does the unit have more than one heater element and perhaps one might be faulty? or does this model not get very hot?
Is a maintenance manual available , or wiring diagram?

The heationg elements are tied together so they either work or don't work,it sounds like your hose vent might be clogged,also check power coming into the dryer on the terminal block,make sure you have 115 on each leg,mike

Beko condenser dryer not drying clothes it is


Well the bad news is this is a extremely cheap unit. It was thought that a sensor that would know when your clothes were dry was a good energy saving idea. Well it wasn't This is a very common issue in these dryers. The Sensor needs to be replaced.

Water sensor light keeps coming on even tho tank empty have checked hoses and cleaned large filter at front


try cleaning out the condenser unit, instuctions are on pages 2 and 3 of your manual, if you dont have it download it from the indesit website.
fluff and old stuff gathers in it, if you leave it too long it will burn out the thermostat
instructions below.

Step 1

Open the condenser cover

- grip the handle and pull

towards you.

Step 2

Remove the condenser by

turning the 3 catches, then pull

the condenser towards you. (It is

normal for some residual water

to be left in the tubes).

Step 3

Clean the condenser with running

water over the rear side to

remove any fluff deposits.

Step 4

Replace the condenser unit;

make sure that the unit is

securely in place, that all 3

catches are fixed and that the

position arrows on the front end

of the condenser are pointing

upwards.

Our kenmore eliite HE4 gas dryer keeps shutting off after a few minutes of running no mattter what heat setting we put it on. On air dry mode it works. Is this a high heat sensor problem? The unit is 4...


You didn't mention if the dryer is getting hot.


If is getting hot, then shutting off, I agree with you.

If it is NOT getting hot, I would suspect the IGNITER ASSY

Dryer not hot


Tht means that the element is not heating on.

You need to call a technician to test the element, the thermic sensor, and the control assembly.

The most likely is a defective heating element, that must be replaced.

Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry


I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.
