Hotpoint vtd20 dryer aquarius - cuts out when overheats

I have a 2nd hand hotpoint vtd20 tumble dryer aquarius model. Only a couple of small problems with it. One is the door handle is slightly broken so sometimes hard to open (anyone know if i can get parts to repair it?) and also if it sometimes cuts out after a bit of time and fuses all electric appliances. Any ideas? Would be grateful for any advise. Caz

Re your other prob ,it is probably due to a fault with the heater, disconnect the heater and run the dryer .if it does not cut out then your heater needs replacing.

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!

Hotpoint aquarius tumble dryer, drum not going round but still


If you can hear the motor going, then the belt probably needs replacing, if no motor action, then prob is more serious.

Please rate my solution.

Not drying


the steam gets condensed back to water and pumped away so sometimes draining problems cause poor drying. is the machine plumbed in according to handbook?
also your dryer filter may be blocked but this is not accesable without the dryer box being stripped down.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 WD62 (Tumble drying issue).


no the steam from the dryer part comes out of outlet tube the same tube were the water comes out hotpoint washer/dryers use a condensing chamber which allows the steam to cool down a pass through it as water does and through the outlet pipe
