    F10 indicates that the heater is open circuit, or the thermostat is faulty, more likely to be open circuit thermostat, you should replace both thermostats.
    Also make sure that you clean the filters regularly

    This should solve your problem.

    Condenser not drying stuff properly

    I am hoping your talking about a clothes dryer here. based on the model number you posted here. Does your dryer even feel warm to the touch as in any signs of internal heating? If not then here are some things to check. 1 the basics: Check the circuit breaker and make sure that both of them are in the on positon. Just trip them off and then back on again to reset them. 2. Check the power cord for any signs of a bad connection. It will show up as a dark discoloration. 3. I know you said you checked the lint filter but have you gone outside and verified that the external outlet vent is free of obstructions? If not please check it and clear any obstructions. 4. The heating element itself may be open. Ovetr time they are like light bulbs and the burn out requiring repl;acement. 5. There can be a thermostat failure causing an open circuit and no power to the heating element. 6. The motor switch also controls the heating element circuit and it is actuated when the motor is running. If the switch has failed it will prevent the heating element from being energized. 7. The least likely suspects are the timer and heat setting controls yet either of them can cause a no heat condition. You did not mention if it was a gas or electric dryer and the comments above are for an electric dryer. If you have a gas dryer then you can have 8. a bad ignitor, 9. a bad gas valve, 10. a failed gas regulator. Based on this model number CTD80 it does not cross to anything that I can find. The bottom line is your unit is probably worth the cost of getting it repaired. You may want to check your model number again please and repost it you need more information. It appears this is a UK model. I hope this was helpful. It certainly was educational here.

    Hotpoint ultima condenser dryer TC71 is running cold

    Thermostats rarely go. You could have a bad heater or even a voltage problem. Even if the dryer runs, the voltage can still be wrong, it only needs 110 volts to start the motor but must have 220 to have heat.

    Ultima Condensor Dryer

    on the back of your dryer you have a heater behind the protruding panel... Either you heater element has gone, but most like the thermal cut outs have blown...these are located in the same area..they are small and round looking and are connected to them are wires either side. Anyways check the conitunity of the termal cut outs using a tester if no continuity then they are no good... hope it helps...
