The element and stats are located behind removable panel at rear of m/c.
To test , you will need a multi meter set on the ohms range for continuity check., and you need to pull the wires of the components to get a proper reading.
THE M/C MUST BE UNPLUGGED prior to this check.
Check and clean all filters, remove the front bottom left filter, and clean by running under cold water.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.

The heater in my hotpoint aquarius tumble dryer Model TDC 32P ceased to function and I have replaced the heater element with the correct model. However this did not cure the problem. The machine has been...


Sounds like the Thermistor is open. It looks like a dosc about the size of a quarter with 2 wires attached. It is a switch that turns the heater element on and off during the dryer cycle. It's a safety device to prevent overheating and if it's stuck open the machine will appear to work properly .... just no heat. Test with ordinary meter or continuity tester by removing the wires and checking across the device. Replacement is easy usually 2 screws and inexpensive ( less then $10)

No heat when using the tumble dryer


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Hotpoint tumble dryer model tdl62


you dont indicate if its gas or electric.

for both you may check the highlimit switch.
there may be two on ur unit depending on age.
they are located on the back panel and can be removed with a simple screwdriver. of course different models have different locations ..just poke around. (some are round disc others are plastic and both have a wire comming in and one going out of it) when they go bad they dont allow heat section of the dryer function (yea its a safety issue) if u have a meter test it, this should be a n/o switch if its closed...continunity (bad spellng) portion of the meter is used for this. simple check to do. you can do it with the machine off. email if you have more questios.

Hotpoint wd62 washer dryier (aquarius 1200)


i am a retired engineer of 20 years, and its about a year since i worked on combination washer/dryers but if the heater elements fine and power comes from timer there must be cut out somewhere around where it should warm up, look all round the machine one may be hidden or hard to spot there maybe about 3 one of them one of them could be a trigger device (you can press a button to reset it) that style is a very small cube about the size of a sugar lump with2 spades on it, others look like a small flat oval or round shape the size of a five pence piece with 2 spade wires on them, remove the plug from wall and remove these spades and check the contacts for continuity, you need not remove from machine to do so, no circuit + no heat, replacement item not expensive, thats where to start based on the information given, check the sensors you mention again, it sounds like your so close, good luck and work safe

Aquarius 1200 wd62 - Dryer not working


Most likely it is some sort of blockage in the vent, although it could be a bad blower. Check the lint filter and vent openings for a blockage.
