Sounds like the drum is not turning under heavy load.this is a common problem with dryers but usually easily remedied if a competent diyer. first check the theory by putting in big load and see if drum turns. if not then replacing capacator should cure it.

Dryer runs and drys cloths but dosent cool down and stop


when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?unplug the dryer,remove the bottom panel,take out the lint filter and remove the duct that it slides into.clean the duct out,vac out the inside of dryer,if you have a shop vac you can put it on blow and blow the lint forwards so you don't ha ve to remove the drum.put that back together and remove the vent line from the back of dryer,if it's a long run blow it out with a leaf blower,also make sure the outside vent is clear before you blow out the vent line,if the dryer can't move the air around it will run hot.

My hotpoint aquarouis ctd00 tumble dryer is heating but no air is blowing through. also there is no water collecting in the water tray


Check all filters and air vents at front and rear of m/c, to make sure they are all clear., do not overload, make sure you have selected right heat setting, and the correct drying time.
It is not usual to feel air blowing out of dryer, because it is a condenser dryer.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint tdc62p changed thermostats as blowing out cold air,


Make sure that all filters are properly cleaned, and that the air inlet and outlet vents are clear. Make sure water container is empty.
The best way to clean the filter at the bottom is to run cold water through it, this will clear out all the lint.. Make sure you have the correct stats ( there are many for the hotpoint range) and that you have them in the correct position on the heater back plate.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.

Hotpoint NVL333EY Electric dryer blows thermal fuse


I had the same thing happen, I replaced the thermal cutoff and made sure no lint build up. It lasted a week then blew again. I then replaced it again and got to thinking why it would blow. I then took apart the exaust inside the dryer running fron the drum to the motor and right before the motor was a build up of lint ane particals that was almost like compressed sawdust which was blocking half of the line. I cleaned this out and it seemed to work much better.
