I think that I have already suggested some possible reasons for the prob you are experiencing with your dryer, but I don't think I have mentioned the fact that the pump could be fauty, you should be able to hear it running, just a thought , you never know.

I have a Hotpint Aquarius CTD00 Condenser Tumble Dryer, it has stopped drying the clothes. It occassionally works on the high setting (but makes my clothes smell a bit burned out and shrinking) but it...


it could be blocked up with lint, take out the condenser (silver fin bit) and clean run under a tap if necessary, this is the most important bit of the condenser if this is dirty it reduces the efficiency of the dryer. clean all filters with a vacuum cleaner even remove them and clean where they sit in the machine with the vacuum cleaner.
for the reservoir remove a check the inlet is clean and clear. look inside the machine where this is located and again clean and clear this area, then using something long and thin press open the valve that the reservoir mates with (this can often stick with lint and water residue) be-careful though when opened the valve will **** out water so have a few towels to catch it all. and finally raise the front feet a little this will help the water fall to the reservoir.
if this does not work the internal tank may have fluff and this would be a big job to get to this and clean it you have to strip the drum out which can be a pain.

Hotpoint aquarius condenser dryer TDC30


I would dry it just to be on the safe side, even though it doesn't say so. It can't hurt. The front t'stat should be under the top at or near the drum.

Thermostat keeps blowing on Hotpoint Aquarius dryer


Remove the filter completely from the bottom left of m/c
Wash out thoroughly under running water.
Reach in with your hand and clear any fluff and gunge you can find there.
At the rear of the filter housing there is a small drainage hole that blocks up.get a plastic bag tie or similar and poke it clear. Also there is a float chamber and some times the float sticks, this being the case , then it involves a complete strip down to clear prob.
Hope this helps
Plz rate solution
.Thanks.

Hotpoint aquarius tdc32 condenser dryer keeps cutting/tripping out after 5 minutes usage. Press the start button immediately after and won't start. Have to give it 10 minutes or so before starts up....


Hi,

It may be necessary to clean the condenser unit/module (heat exchanger). Often lint would accumulate reducing the efficiency of the condenser causing the temperature internally to rise above specs. Thermal cutoff senses and trips the unit.

In some instances, it could be the thermal sensor/thermostat. I think your particular model has two of them. To gain access inside, it would be required to remove 2~3 panelings. A continuity tester is needed to check the thermostats.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry


I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.
