CDT00 Drying takes ages, water tank does not fill

Hotpoint CDT00, checked heater elements they seem fine, but takes ages to dry, when cleaing filter and housing, dust etc in the housing seems damp. It would seem to me that it is not condensing and therefore recycling the moist air hence the time being taken.

If this is the case how can I prove it?
How do you get at the condensing element to change it?

Check all seals are clear and free from dirt, also there will be a heat exchanger (usually located above the sump) this must be clean and free from dirt this does all the work so if the area is not clean it will take longer to dry.

Rost; I will take a WAG at it. Either your thermostat is not telling the heater element to turn on or the heater element is broken. The heating element is the more likely and can be tested with an ohm meter to make sure.

Empty water button staying on


Remove lower left filter from dryer, and wash it out under running water. Reach inside the compartment and clean any fluff and gunge you can find there.
Get a plastic bag tie or similar, and feel for and locate a small hole at the rear of compartment, poke it clear with bag tie.
If you are certain that the element and stats are o/k , and it still does not heat and the light stays on, then that indicates that the float switch is stuck or is faulty.
To access this involves stripping the dryer down, not an easy job.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

No heat when drying


You need to check the heater element and thermostats which are lolcated behhind a removeable panel at the rear of the dryer..
You will need a meter to do this. Remove one wire from each thermostat and with the meter on the ohms range, test for continuity,if the stats are o/k you will get full scale deflection on the meter., if no movement then stat faulty, you must replace both stats at the same time.
take note which stat goes where as it is important you get them the right way round.
If stats o/k then the heater element is probably faulty.Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
PS, make sure all filters and vents are clean
Particularly the filter at the bottom left, remove it and wash it out under running water.

Heating element


this could be a partial faulty heater element, a 2 heat element could only be working on 1 element, this can overload the other one causing it to keep switching on and off at the thermostat, sometimes this can be normal but saying as you think its not hot enough, check you have the settings correct on the heater options, i have seen stranger things happen test element contacts for both circuits unplug machine first
