If you are getting 240v on all element connections then you are missing a neutral and the element will not heat.
Please check this and post your findings.
Thankyou.

My hotpoint aquarius tvf760 tumble dryer keeps flashing and saying error-07........ Has it died?


Not really, just a bit sick. I found this

F07 Lower tumble dryer element failure
  • Check security of module connector J4
  • Test between pins 4 and 3 on J4 (approximately 48 Ohms). If open circuit, test lower element and wiring between J4 and the heater.

Installed new upper & lower elements & thermostats, only top htr works


If original problem was caused by sediment burning out lower element, did you clean sediment out of water heater when changing lower element?
Two element water heaters are 240V.
Thermostats cut power on one hot wire, but 240V circuit has 2 hot wires. So lower element has power at all times coming from the red wire.
1) Use ordinary tester or multimeter set to 240V <> test each screw of lower element to bare metal part of water heater. Each screw should show 120V. If there is no power, then upper thermostat is defective, screw on upper thermostat is loose, or red wire between upper and lower parts of water heater is bad.
2) Remove wires from lower element. Use continuity tester or multimeter set to ohms <> test across both screws of element to see if power travels through element <> if element is bad, then continuity tester will not light up and multimeter will show no ohms. Put wires back on element after test.
3) Start with cold water in tank. Turn on water heater & upper element will turn on. Put ear on side of tank to hear if upper element is heating water. Test #3 screw to #2 screw on low left side of thermostat, should read 240V > Test #3 screw to #4 screw on low right side of thermostat, should read 0V.
Put ear on side of tank. When upper element turns off: Test #3 screw to #2 screw on low left side of thermostat, should read 0V > Test #3 screw to #4 screw on low right side of thermostat, should read 240V. If this test shows 0V and 0V, then upper thermostat is bad. If reading is correct, immediately move to next test.

4) Turn temp on lower thermostat to 150. Using ordinary tester or multimeter set to 240V <> Test across both screws of lower element. If there is no reading, and you know element is good from step 2, then lower thermostat is bad, or wire is bad between lower element and lower thermostat, or wire is bad between lower thermostat and top part of heater.
5) Test across both lower thermostat screws, should read 240V.If this test is good, it means wires are good. Put jumper wire across both screws of lower thermostat, and test lower element again. If element finally turns on with jumper wire, then lower thermostat is bad.

If wire is bad between upper and lower parts of water heater, and water heater has tight-fitting 2" foam insulation, it usually indicates water heater replacement.

My hotpoint ctd00has stopped heating up how do i


You will find the thermostats located at the rear of dryer.
Remove cover, and you will see them adjacent to the heater element, change them both, even if only 1 is faulty.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Tumble dryer not getting hot


Likely to be a thermostat or heater element problem.
These are located at the rear of the dryer, behind a removeable cover, but you will need a test meter to check them out.
Hope this helps.
