Question about Dryers

My hotpoint vtd20 tumble dryer will not start. I was using it then when I put a second load in and pressed start - nothing happened. The power light is on but no tumbling!

    None of the above! Maybe I didn't explain the problem sufficiently. I've sorted the problem now, anyway. It seems the 'delay start' switch was slightly turned which must have confused the dryer. Simple yet crazy!

If you can hear the motor running but no tumble action then belt has come off.
Make sure the door is shut properly..
If it gets hot at the back, then you are difinately getting power to everything.
If you can hear a slight buzzing noise, then the motor is failing to start, probably due to a faulty start capacitor.

I have the LG Model# DLE1101W dryer. The dryer will power up but when I go to start the dryer after I put a second load in, I get a series of dinging sounds when pressing the start button and the drye


Id like to see if I could help you so you will have to use more definitive terms, "Start" I'm guessing that you mean that the drum doesn't turn? (the lights come on and you push the start button and the drum does not turn) If that's the case I would start with the door switch, Best to start with the most obvious first. Try jumping it to over ride wait your response

Sometimes when using the tumble dryer of my Hotpoint WD420 I get a puddle of water on the floor. Doesn't happen with every use. Do you know what the problem might be?


I suspect your dryer vent is blocked or partially clogged.. Also if your washer is not opperating properly putting wet close in the dryer could also cause this.....hope this helps!
