Sounds like the heating element of the dryer may have come loose and is shorting against the metal dryer box on top of the drum.

The NTC for the dryer is situated on top of the dryer heater box, fault can often be caused by a simple broken wire, they are very weak at this point.

its the sensor on the dryer

if you take off the top, its mounted on top of the dryer box, usually has a white plug with 2 black wires attached

Hotpoint washer dryer lights flashing


Check first the thermal fuse.

Test heating element to ensure is not grounded, and staying always on. Test the fan and ventilation system.

If you find no fault in there , then test the timer control board.

Hotpoint wd440 flashing dryer heat button and onoff button !


I had to have a tech come out for the same problem two weeks ago. They had to clean the lint collector which you cannot get to on your own. He said now that this has been done everytime I use the machine, take the clothes out and then run a rinse spin cycle.
