Remove the rear cover and you will see the element and stats, you will need a meter to test them.
Pull one wire off each thermostat and with a meter that beeps, test across each thermostat, if they are o/k, then the meter will beep,
if no beep then no good.
Replace all heater stats, even if only one has gone
If the stats are o/k then you will have to check the heater, this is more involved as it entails removing the top cover and left side panel looking at the dryer from the rear.
Unplug the heater lead, and again test with meter,if element o/k, then prob is timer or main pcb could be faulty, it really does get quite involved.
There is also a thermistor at the front of the dryer, that is part of the heating circuit.
Plz rate my solution.
Thnks.

Hotpoint aquarius tdc32s not heating up


Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.

If you are getting 240v on all element connections then you are missing a neutral and the element will not heat.
Please check this and post your findings.
Thankyou.

How to fix Hotpoint CTD00 Tumble Dryer?


http://www.fixya.com/support/t232066-hotpoint_ctd00_trips_power

The link above should solve your problem. I have the same problem and my parents who bought the same tumble dryer also had the same problem. Its water backing up to the fan then its hitting the heating element which is tripping the electric off.

At the back of the Tumble dryer near the bottom you'll see a panel that has about 8 screws that you can taqke off as well as a small panel that cover the pivet for the drum. If you unscrew this you will see the fan and heating element and no doubt a small puddle of water and damp dust that has clung onto the panel. You should dry this with kitchen roll and clean the old dust off then carefully turn the tumble dryer on (at your own risk lol) or you can take the advice of the person who posted the link above and use a hair dryer. This will stop the element getting wet and tripping off.

Also there is a water reservoir to the right of the panel i mentioned. If you prise the clips open and remove the top section you will see the water in the reservoir. If you look inside it on the bottom left hand side there is a little **** that the water drains in from. If you use something like pipe cleaners or a knife and wiggle it about you may have some fluff or hair trapped there that is making the water back up to the fan and causing the tumble dryer to trip off.

Hopefully this willsolve your problem for the time being but the filter in the bottom of the dryer needs to be cleaned thoroughly every week or so to stop this happening again.

Personally i think this is a major design flaw and the tumble dryer should be recalled but Hotpoints aftercare service is awful to say the least so lesson learnt, don't buy a hotpoint tumble dryer!
