Probably sticking float switch
Remove lower bottom left filter completely run water thro it to clean all fluff out reach inside and clear any build up of fluff that you can see or feel.
At the back of this aperture is a small hole that gets clogged up,feel for it and poke a plastic bag tie or similar, and poke it clear, if this does not work then it would probably involve a strip down to access the float chamber and switch assy.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Empty water light, empty condenser


I experienced the problem with a hotpoint TCYM 750, with the red empty water light failing to switch off. After removing the filter and cleaning it, cleaning the condenser and drying anywhere I had access to the machine still didn't heat and the light remained on. Reading the post about the machine having 3 reservoirs it struck me that one of the reservoirs may be hard to access. So I unplugged the machine and tipped it onto its front. The reservoir drained, I pushed the machine back upright and cleared up some water around the condenser. The drier now works properly and the empty water light is off - job done!

The empty water wanrning light will not go out. I


there is a float switch at the pump that has become stuck, and when this happens, the "empty water" light will stay on and the machine will operate but with no heat. just locate the floating switch and give it a light tap back into its place, this will solve your problem.
should you have any problems you can email me at appliancesdav@hotmail.com

Hoover 381/1 condenser tumble dryer empty water


Got a similar problem with an HNC172. The supplier said it is the water indicator sensor that is not working. He fixed it! It still stops!!! Clear lint from the trap in the door. Empty what little water there is in the tank, then make sure it has a good shove to get it back into place and the tube/catch is well joined back. Also take out the condenser unit above water tank, stick in the bath and put the shower hose through it to clear lint. Recommend getting a tea strainer over the plug hole or you block your drain as quite a bit comes out. It helped for a while, but it still has problems. Might be the thermostat for the heater? check the error codes. They flash a different number of times within 15 seconds to indicate which problem is happening.

Empty water light stays on and doesnt get hot


allways with this type of unit it is best to always empty the container after every dry,this is because when the water rises in the pump chamber it operates a switch which shuts of the heater and puts on the light. and they stick quite a lot,disconnect from power and rock the appliance from front to back quite hard and this should rectify the problem

My indesit is70c tumble dryer isnt working correctly. The light which tells you to empty the water is staying on the water draw isn't filling up with water and it does not get any heat. ( I Know I Am Blond...


problem is probably the pump that sends water up to the container. take small panel off back and pump and water container is exposed. power the pump independently and see if it works

Water light on dryer


hey cadoras,

you might want to check the sensor for the water inside the dryer. you say that even if you already put water in it, the light is still on correct? which means that the dryer does not detect or sense that water is already there. so please check if the sensor is working and if not, replace the sensor.

Water empty light wont go out


the black wire that was moving water from down condenser to up - water container - remove it. Use cotton swabs to "clean" the holes, do a run of the dryer without that black wire connected ( carefull, cause some wated might spill at this point), reattach black wire, and enjoy :)

It worked for me anyway. ( fingers crossed, its been on for 20 mins and still no red lights flashing)

Tank full light stays lit.


Under the water bottle is a drain hole,when the bottle overflows water runs down this hole through a pipe to a reservoir behind the condensor unit, there is a float in this reservoir that rises and clicks a switch that activates the full tank light and stops the machine working,
removing the stopper at the rear and emptying the reservior should do the trick,If the float does not go back down due to dirt in the machine the left hand side panel can be removed by taking off the top then the retaining screws,one inside at the top the rest in the back panel,remove the one screw holding the float switch unit and clean the black float.(Make sure it's not plugged in)
