Sounds like the dryer heater element has worked loose perhaps and shorted out against the metal dryer box which sits on top of the drum.
best to get an engineer out i'd say.

Washed ok but when put on drying mode it made a loud grating noise


The drying fan is most likely clogged.
Take of the topp, then you will se the drying fan. Along with the heating system. There are several screws you have to undo on the heating canal. Then you should be able to clean the whole thing.
Sometimes the fan is broken, and need replacing.

This is not recomended if you dont know what you are doing!
Do a mistake with the overheating guards, heater position, wireing ect, and you could set the machine on fire the next time you use the dryer

The last 5 minutes of my washing cycle, my washer makes this loud noise! It sounds like a plane taking off! It's so loud, you can't hear tv. I'm not sure what the problem is.


Does it dry the clothes as fast as always? Or is it taking longer to dry them? That noise could be the blower wheel.

If the noise is more of a scrubbing sound that would be your glides worn thin and rubbing the mount

Something can also be in the blower causing the noise.

9_20_2011_2_48_43_pm.jpgTake the door off first and since the door is reversable remove those 2 screws on the other side. Then the front pops off revealing the clips that hold down the top. Then you can get the glide mount/shroud off there and remove the tub. You probably figured out you cannot access the innards from the rear of the dryer.

My hotpoint aqaurius WD420 is not drying.


Could be stat or heater .Remove the top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the right side of washer drum.
The element and stat/s are located on the top of the manifold box.
You willneed a meter to test with, also check for broken wires.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 Washer Dryer not drying.


Hi, I think the problem you have is with the cold water inlet valve? When your machine dries it uses a small amount of water at high pressure through a restricter fitted in the water inlet valve. These break down letting in to much water which cannot evaporate quick enough for it to pump out causing the washing to become wetter than after the wash/spin cycle. The only way of solving this is to replace th tree way water inlet valve. But make sure that the pump is working ok first and that there is nothing in the sump hose trap which is located underneath the washing machine out the bottom of the tub.
Good luck.................

Washer dryer not heating up


If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.

Hotpoint BWD129 1200 spin - unwanted drying cycles


This is more a workaround than a solution. When you choose the washing programme (say "D") and push the on/off button, two lights will flash, the "door locked" and the "drying" one. Now turn the "drying programme" button until the "drying" light stops flashing (in my case, this is true when I set the drying programme to 40°C). Then start the washing mashine.

Seems like the function of the drying programme button has shifted against the settings written on the button...don't ask me why! Of course, no guarantee but works for me. Please let me know if it does for you.

Have suffered the same problem. Suggest you remove back (after turning off electrical supply) and look at the water outlet pipe - you may have a sock or two in this - remember to reattach outlet and secure in position.
