Question about Hotpoint TDC32 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Hotpoint tdc62p changed thermostats as blowing out cold air,

After changing both the thermostats the dryer worked again for one week, and is now back to blowing just cold air again!! Cannot afford to keep replacing the thermostats at £20 per time, any suggestions?

    Have checked all filters, air inlet and outlet. Have ordered two more thermostats from espares and will try again with these. If they only last a week then think we will have to buy a new dryer, as replacing the element is quite expensive but i don't think its thwe element which is causing the problems. Cheers

Make sure that all filters are properly cleaned, and that the air inlet and outlet vents are clear. Make sure water container is empty.
The best way to clean the filter at the bottom is to run cold water through it, this will clear out all the lint.. Make sure you have the correct stats ( there are many for the hotpoint range) and that you have them in the correct position on the heater back plate.
Plz rate this solution.

This indesit reverse action dryer (1S31V) has stopped blowing out hot air. I took the back off and cleaned the fluff which had clearly caused the problem. Is there a thermostat or fuse that I need to...

Hi. I have a Hotpoint tumble condensing drier which had the same problem. The solution for me was to access the heating element at the back which involved taking the back off and locating the small metal thermostat which is the size of a two pence coin and 10mm thick.There
is a small hole in the centre and all I had to do was press a fairly thick needle into the hole until there was a click which reset the
thermostat and everything was working fine. This problem does still occur now and again. By the way the heating element is attached
to the removed back with cables giving a clue which helped me find
the unit. Hope this helps Regards Peter

My hotpoint TDC30 dryer is cutting out after 3 mins ,the drum is warm inside and wont restart till its cold inside the drum

Hi joanne balla...
Sounds like the cyclic thermostat, thermostat, fuse (differnet names for the same part) faulty...replace it.
You will have to remove the back from the machine, look for the air tube going to the vent of your dryer and located on it will be the thermostat/s.
To test it, remove the wires fromthe two terminals and tape them together, then try running your dryer again and if it runs and heats ok then replace the cyclic thermostat/fuse.
Go to the following webpage to see the thermostat

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and

your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

Hotpoint TDC62P Condenser Dryer no heat

Re your on going prob with dryer.
You should be reading 240v at the heater and stats.
To be sure the stats are faulty or not, you need to remove the connections to them and test for continuity through them both.
Set you meter on the ohms range, you should get full scale deflection if they are o/k
if you do not get a reading, then they are faulty.
The orange wires should be on the left side stat, and the blue on the right side stat.
It is possible you have got the stats the wrong way round, the one with the green spot on should be on the left. They are rated at 130c for the green spot,and 106c for the other one.

To be sure you have the right stats, the partnumber should be 1701774.
It is imperative you have the right ones fitted, as they changed the part number depending on the date code of the dryer.
If the stats are o/k then it is possible that the pcb is faulty.
Hope this clarifys things for you.
Good luck.

Blowing out cold air even though ive changed the thermostat

Could be your element itself. Check the continuity of it as well both thermostats, somewhere in that circuit you will find the problem, and then your answer.

Hotpoint NVL333EY Electric dryer blows thermal fuse

I had the same thing happen, I replaced the thermal cutoff and made sure no lint build up. It lasted a week then blew again. I then replaced it again and got to thinking why it would blow. I then took apart the exaust inside the dryer running fron the drum to the motor and right before the motor was a build up of lint ane particals that was almost like compressed sawdust which was blocking half of the line. I cleaned this out and it seemed to work much better.
