F-10 Code on Hotpoint Ultima CDT85

The code keeps coming up after a minute of turning the dryer on.  I have cleaned the vents but it still isn't fixed.  Do you know where the thermostat is located?

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.
Please leave a rating for my comments, or I will not know if you solved your prob.

    Make sure the filters are thoroughly cleaned, wash the lower front left one under running water to remove all traces of lint.

Does not work

Error code F10 indicates a faulty thermostat, or the common of the element is open circuit.
You need test the stats for continuity, also the element as well.
It is more likely to be the stats, you must, replace both and not just the one.
Check vents , clean filters
Remove the lower left filter, and wash it through with running water to thoroughly clean it.

Plz rate my solution.

Dont know what the fault codes are for my Hptpoint Dryer CTD80

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

This should solve your problem.
