My Hotpoint Aquarius VTD60 tumble dryer works ok but does not heat up. How can I test the heating element or thermostats.


you can use a multimeter to check both. case usually must be removed. for the heating coils, make sure the unit is unplugged !!!, change the meter to ohms, then touch the meter's leads to each end of each coil. should be around 3-10 ohms depending on the power rating. to test the thermostats, unhook all dryer leads to the thermostat and connect and secure the meter's leads to the thermostats leads while still in ohms; should be just two leads on each thermostat. if it has more, it could be a preheated type; you'll need the part number off the thermostat to get the pin functions. should be close to zero while cool, and open (or infinite ohms) when you heat it up (use a lighter). this is a crude test to check the thermostat's basic operation, not how accurate they are. Most dryers have two thermostats; one for low, and one for high, and are mounted in or on the air duct behind the lint trap. good luck.

Hotpoint aquarius tdc32s not heating up


Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.
