CTD85A dryer showing F-10

People have posted solutions for the CTD85 dryer but when I have taken the back panel off my dryer there was no brown thermostat to stick a pin in, from what I could see there was heating elements, and some white bowes with some brown orange and another colour wires going into them

You have to remove 2 screws that secure the heater element to the rear cover, there you will find the thermostats located.
Be careful not to damage the element as it is very fragile, and is easily broken.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

You can remove the panel and check for fault in the connectors and the line to the display, use a hair dryer to warm and dispel any moisture on the board and panel. If there is no result then the panel has to be replaced.

CTD85 tumble dryer: power is getting through to the machine but absolutely nothing happens


Hi.

If there is power then the door switch is probably broken. first make sure that there is power to the machine. The door switch is tested with power off, accessing switch contacts and reading Ohms with a multimeter. When door is closed the switch must have continuity, reading zero or few Ohms. With door open the switch contacts read infinity (circuit open).

If the door switch is OK, test power cord, main switch, wiring harness, motor and timer.

Dryer is leaving brown marks on clothes. it is either a burn mark or they are getting caught between dryer drum and shell, not the door


I had the same problem. Unfortunately, it is caused by a rusting drum edges, if you can believe it. My dryer was only 6 years old when this problem occured. There are felt gaskets on the front and back of the drums where it contacts and rotates on the frame of the dryer. You can take a white cloth and run it around the rim of the front and back of the drum and I suspect you will end up with some discoloration on the cloth. I had these felt gaskets replaced, but that is only a temp solution. When the drum is taken out and the old felt gaskets are removed, you can clean the edges of the drum and get a lot of rust/brown off the drum. New gaskets are only a temp fix. I did it about 1 1/2 yr ago, and I think the problem is starting again. Probably time for a new dryer or time to pull the drum and clean it. New drum probably cost prohibitive if you can get one. What a bunch of **** for a 7 1/2 old dryer. Next dryer will have a stainless steel drum. Hope this explanation helps you with your problem.

How do you take the back off a Hotpoint Ctd85 tumble dryer . I have taken all the screws out and the top of the machine and the two bottom corners are still holding the back on tight. I cant see anything...


most dryers you cant remove the back, you remove the front face then the top, then drum and this is how you get into the rear dryer area

I am not familiar with this either. You may can go to google search and type in model and the code and someone else may have had a similar problem and a solution as well.

Ctd80 hotpoint dryer error code f10


If you remove the back cover of the drier with the appliance un pluged, you will see the heater bracket.

un screw this from the back panel, and at the top you will see three thermostats. There is a brown one with a small hole in the middle, if you use a pin and press in, you should hear a click. This resets the thermostat and you should be able to use the drier again.

Apparently a common fault on these indicit based driers.

it worked on mine

Brown streaks on clothes


mich, The brown streaks are probably caused by worn drum guides and lower basket seal. I've seen this quite often on Frigidaire dryers. Part numbers 5303937139 upper felt guide and 5303283286 lower basket seal. This can be a task for an inexperienced person but can be done. It requires removing the top panel and front panel/door assy. The old guides have to be scraped off. The upper felt guides and lower seal glue on. Catriver...post back.
