Re: F-10 Code on Hotpoint Ultima CDT85
Error code F10 indicates a prob with the heater element and or thermostats.
These are located behind the removable panel at rear of dryer.
If you cannot see the stats, then undo 2 screws that secure element to rear panel, and you will see the stats.
This only applys if the element is fastened to rear panel, other wise you will see them fastened to the rear of the dryer.
Please remember, this error code is only an indication of the problem and not a solution, as other factors could be involved.

Hi, my dryer has 3 things to check out of which one is more hidden:
- empty the water reservoir
- clean filter in the door
- clean condensor which is hidden below the bottom panel which has to be released through a button behind the door
The last one is less obvious and more difficult to find/reach. Might need to consult the manual.
D90 means the dryer thinks the vent duct is 90% blocked. Be sure the vent hose is not kinked behind the dryer. I've even disconnected the hose from the dryer and hooked up my leaf blower to blow out the vent as it develops more air pressure than the dryer does.
Here's a great video describing the error code: https://youtu.be/yL7Oq4lCadw
Good luck. Hope this helps.
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.
Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.
GOD IS still GOOD !!!!
sounds like its blocked with fluff somewhere and your element could be wet take off the back and check your element and if water around it you need to compleatly clean out your filters and down where the condenser is then leave it for a day or two to compleatly dry the element
it's overheating,you could have a bad motor or the dryer just needs to be cleaned out,when was the last time you cleaned it out? try disconnecting the vent line from the back of dryer and run it for a while,you should see a difference but you'll still need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into unplug the dryer first,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and if the vent line is a long run from the back of dryer to the outside vent i use a leaf blower to clean out the vent line,just make sure the outside vent isn't blocked with anything because if it is the vent line can pop.you should clean the dryer once a year,your clothes will dey on time,less parts will go on you and you won't have to worry about dryer fires
Most likely your wall vent is restricted. Unhook dryer from wall vent and pull away from wall. If you don't get code your wall vent needs to be cleaned.
If unit still gives code sensor is either bad or theres a restrictions inside machine, likely in the blower wheel hosing. Air flow when running should be strong coming out of vent. many times strength of a blow dryer.
F10 indicates that the heater is open circuit, or the thermostat is faulty, more likely to be open circuit thermostat, you should replace both thermostats.
Also make sure that you clean the filters regularly
