There is a heating element for the dryer that may not be igniting
if the dryer spins then check the element as they can crack, but look ok
for the water light: does the water take long to fill? or long to drain?

Hi,

If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:


Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Model GEW9200LWO control lock light


Even tho the door lock light is working the switch has dropped a leg supplying power to the rest of the machine. Repace the door switch and you should be good to go. Even tho you have a GE it was made by frigidaire for GE. Common problem with the newer switches. They have gone back to the originals as the replacement for this.

Empty water light stays on and doesnt get hot


allways with this type of unit it is best to always empty the container after every dry,this is because when the water rises in the pump chamber it operates a switch which shuts of the heater and puts on the light. and they stick quite a lot,disconnect from power and rock the appliance from front to back quite hard and this should rectify the problem

Empty water light stays on


Remove lower left filter,and washout under running water, reach into the opening and clear out all fluff and gunge, get a plastic bag tie or similar, and feel for and locate small hole at rear of compartment and poke clear with plastic
Make sure the air vents are clear back and front and try again, if still showing light then probably the float switch is sticking or faulty, this involves a complete strip down of dryer to fix.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Empty water light staying on machine will not work


Probably sticking float switch
Remove lower bottom left filter completely run water thro it to clean all fluff out reach inside and clear any build up of fluff that you can see or feel.
At the back of this aperture is a small hole that gets clogged up,feel for it and poke a plastic bag tie or similar, and poke it clear, if this does not work then it would probably involve a strip down to access the float chamber and switch assy.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius dryer TDC30. The 'Empty Water' light stays on even though the reservoir has been emptied. The machine runs but does not warm up. Is this a common problem? has the element...


Float chamber is bunged up ,at the rear of the dryer at the bottom is a black plug / cap pull it off and stick a pipe cleaner
or long cable tie metal coat hanger in it to clear the old wet fluff (have some kitchen roll handy as some water comes out with the wet fluff),
other wise its a total strip down to clear the chamber out.

Water light on dryer


hey cadoras,

you might want to check the sensor for the water inside the dryer. you say that even if you already put water in it, the light is still on correct? which means that the dryer does not detect or sense that water is already there. so please check if the sensor is working and if not, replace the sensor.

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.

Water empty light wont go out


the black wire that was moving water from down condenser to up - water container - remove it. Use cotton swabs to "clean" the holes, do a run of the dryer without that black wire connected ( carefull, cause some wated might spill at this point), reattach black wire, and enjoy :)

It worked for me anyway. ( fingers crossed, its been on for 20 mins and still no red lights flashing)
