The tumble dryer just keeps going and doesn't switch itself off when using the automatic sensor mode. Seems to stick on 20 mins


Find the sensor, near the tub, and see if a wire has not just simply fallen off or is touching another wire that is bare. It is common, but very frustrating.


kindly,
Jim

Dryer wont heat up


There could be a number of reasons why your dryer is not heating.
1) The element may be faulty
2) A thermostat or thermistor could be faulty or need resetting (if you have one with a reset button) You would need to check your hand book for this info.
3) you could have a wiring fault or lose terminal.
4) If you have a dryer with a revers tumble (one that goes in the opposit direction for a few minutes before continueing) on some models this incorperates a revers timer that works off the main timer and when it is in revers tumble the heater is switched off. If the timer is faulty it would keep the heater permanently switched off.

How to fit creda thermostats


It depends on which make and model of tumble dryer you have as to how easy it is to replace the relevant parts. Some tumble dryers have heating elements that are easily accessible by removing the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious burning out or open circuit. Others though have their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down we will try and cover as many as possible in or video tutorials section. Tumble dryer heating elements are always protected by thermal fuses and thermostats which are usually simple devices with 2 wires connected and have a bimetal strip inside them. They can be tested for continuity with a test meter.
The problem is that if a stat (thermostat) or t.o.c. (thermal overload cut-out) has gone open circuit, it may be for a reason. Overheating could have caused it by not being able to vent the air due to a blockage some ware. Blocked filters or even the machine not being allowed its ten minute cooling down period, Overloading can cause it as well. Sometimes they can go for no apparent reason. A blocked or severely kinked vent hosecan also cause overheating.

The tumble dryer trips out


It sound as though it is overheating.

This may be caused by a reduction of air flowing through the machine.

Check all the filters and the out pipe for blockages that would restrict the air flow.

I have a tumble dryer.


Sounds as if the door switch is the problem. This is normally a safety switch that stops the dryer when the door is opened.
Unplug the dryer.
Remove the door switch and check the switch condition with a continuity meter after removing the wires. Try turning the switch on and off....the meter should read power on and off when you do that.
You may have to remove the front of the dryer to get to the door switch.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Tumble dryer when switched on cuts power to all sockets in house


Hi.
Try it with the heater disconnected, you will find it at the rear of the m/c at the bottom left behind a removable panel.
You may have to remove the top cover and the right hand side panel looking at the m/c from the front. Try it again.
I fit does not trip. then your heater is faulty.
If it still trips then you are probably going to have to call en engineer

Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry


I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.

Hotpoint TDC 30P


Ask your husband to open the service panel and to touch the motor boady when the washer will stop spining. If it is very hot,the problem is with the motor. Before moving to the next step he should unplugged the power cable ! He should then to pull out the motor's brushes (2 carbon units that transfered the current to the motor's armature) and check their condition. If they are in a bad condition they should be replaced. Let me know if you will need for further assistance. Good luck!

Cutting out after a few minutes


Is the water supply (for supplying cooling water to the condenser) switched on? If not, there's no real mechanism for removing heat from the machine, and it might reasonably be expected to shut itself down. Once you've got water going to the inlet hose, you might check that the solenoid valve which shuts the water off when the machine is turned off hasn't failed, and that the jet through which the water squirts into the condenser (if that's separate in this model) isn't blocked.
