Hotpoint Aquarius TDL30 tumble dryer timer not advancing

The timer doesn't always advance. It can work for days and then stop advancing for days but I do get heat when it sticks but no reverse action. Where do you suggest to start looking.
Thank you for your help in advance.

    I have the same problem with my hotpoint aquarius VTD60, with the sensor dry, but it gets stuck on 10 minutes, and doesn't go onto the cool cycle (which is the last 10 minutes).

    I have the same problem with my hotpoint aquarius VTD60.
    It stops on random days on 10 minutes, so doesn't go onto the cool cycle, when using the sensor dry cycle.

    Under guarentee I have had both (?) circuit boards replaced, but it hasn't solved the problem.

Fmw76:

This could be a timer issue or a thermostat.
If you are using a timed dry it would be timer .
If you are using an auto dry cycle it would possibly be a thermostat.

My drier timer doesn't always advance to the next minute - it just gets stuck on a minute and continues to tumble but not dry


My older dryer and washer use to do the same thing...

Here is why: There are copper contacts on the inside of timer that need to make "contact" with the next little contact in order to "advance" through the cycle.

Two solutions for a fix...ya! (get it? Fixya! lol) (one is free!!)

Fix#1 (this worked on both my machines) : Advance the timer clockwise about 100-200 times. (you'll here click, click , click and so on and your hand will get tired but works 80% of the time). What this does is "clean" the contacts.

Fix#2: Replace the timer. You can enter your model number at parts store below and see a complete parts breakdown and order and replace timer.

Goodluck!

Either the belt is broken or possibly the motor starter has failed. Very often the belt. Be warned though, modern day tumble dryers use stretch belts that can be very difficult to fit.

Probably faulty thermostat/s, or heater element.
Located at rear of dryer behind removeable panel.
You will need a meter to test with.

Hotpointdryer timer problem


There are two coils in the heating element, and if one burns out, the timer will not advance in automatic dry. The timer should still advance when using manual (or timed) dry.

The reversing tumble action is controllerd by the timer, so it could be contacts in timer.
It is useable running in one direction.
Check for loose or broken wires to motor as well.
Hope this is off some help to you.
