SOURCE: tumble dryer spins, but doesn't heat up

You need an ohm meter to do needed checks. Unplug dryer from power,,, then look for sensors and locate the heat coils. Using the ohm meter, check each device by connecting meter to the posts ( your looking for an open curcuit) Note that when you touch the leads of the ohm meter together, the gage will move? This is closed condition, and if the needle did not move, this is called "open". When you find a sensor or heat coil that reads open, that part is bad.
Now make sure there is not a tripped breaker in the fuse panel of the house,,, because even though the dryer is 220 volt,,, 110 volt runs the tumble motor while the other 110 volt curcuit runs the heat side ( so one will work without the other)

SOURCE: indesit condenser tumble dryer water

Maybe trapped water in the dryer. Switch off and remove power from wall. Remove condenser unit from the dryer (clean the condenser while you have the chance with plenty of water and an old toothbrush - it will probably be filthy). With the condenser unit removed stick an old tea towel in the hole where the condenser was and then tip the dryer on its side. If there is water it will either run onto the tea towel or onto your kitchen floor OR into the water container!

It worked for me, honest...

SOURCE: Hoover 381/1 condenser tumble dryer empty water

Got a similar problem with an HNC172. The supplier said it is the water indicator sensor that is not working. He fixed it! It still stops!!! Clear lint from the trap in the door. Empty what little water there is in the tank, then make sure it has a good shove to get it back into place and the tube/catch is well joined back. Also take out the condenser unit above water tank, stick in the bath and put the shower hose through it to clear lint. Recommend getting a tea strainer over the plug hole or you block your drain as quite a bit comes out. It helped for a while, but it still has problems. Might be the thermostat for the heater? check the error codes. They flash a different number of times within 15 seconds to indicate which problem is happening.

I have a bosch WTE86304GB/03 tumble dryer red light says empty container, but container is empty, machine keeps stoping and flashing this light on ?


Hi the problems is not a sensor its the codenser unit. Above the water collector should be a panel on the front of your machine, open the panel and you will see the condeser.covered in fluff, simply remove the condeser and clean it under an outside tap after removing as much fluff as possible by hand. Push back into place when clean and hey presto back to new again.

Hoover six tumble dryer runs for about 15 minutes then trips the electrics, condenser has been cleaned and water container is always emptied


usual cause is water being thrown by the fan onto the heater. after this has happened, remove cover over heater and see if water is present.
the water is there because the water path from condensor box to pump housing is blocked with lint

My indesit is70c tumble dryer isnt working correctly. The light which tells you to empty the water is staying on the water draw isn't filling up with water and it does not get any heat. ( I Know I Am Blond...


problem is probably the pump that sends water up to the container. take small panel off back and pump and water container is exposed. power the pump independently and see if it works

Bosch tumble dryer


I've sorted mine this morning. First, disconnect from the mains - VERY important! Pull out the metal condenser unit at the bottom, and behind it, there's a small hatch in the bottom to the reservoir. This can get gunked up with water, and is very difficult to clean - HOWEVER - I've found a really easy way of cleaning it. I've got a VAX carpet washer with a hose attachment, and I simply sucked all the water out using that. If you don't own a carpet cleaner maybe borrow one. I did this this morning, and my tumble-dryer's still running happily after an hour! It is possible to clean it out without vacuum, but it takes a LOT longer, and the vacuum of the cleaner pulls out gunk that is hard to access. Another place where gunk collects is behind that hatch right at the back - there's a tube up to the right. I pulled out quite a long chunk of lint. However, that wasn't the solution on it's own, I still had to clean out the reservoir as above.
