Hotpoint tdc62 thermostats keep breaking

Works fine but no heat. Replaced thermostats twice now within two weeks and the heat has gone again, presumably thermostats again? Ive cleaned all the vents etc to make sure theres no fluff. What could be the problem?

    This is a condensing tumble dryer not a washer.

    I don't really know about wiring etc. but I connected the wires together to over ride the thermostats - the heating elememt came on but only half of one of the four bars worked. Would this cause the thermostats to break and what would cause the heating elements not to work? Is this fixable?

It cannot be that the thermostat fails unless there some fault in the circuit or wiring . You need to recheck the lines to the element and the thermostat from the controller., check if there is any leakage or cross connection. Also it is possible that the loss of heat is due to faulty harness or wiring or connectors. Remove and plug back all leads and connections.

SOURCE: Dryer not getting enought airflow to outside dryer vent

Normally it is six feet and not more than two bends, if it has been doing this you have buildup in the ducts and need to clean the ducts. I would suggest you make a new hole to address the problem. Also if you have a plastic pipe sometimes they develope a flap those blocks or slows the air down you can’t see this unless it is in dry mode. Any blockage will slow the air down allowing particles to drop down and gradually plug the vent, if the bends are too tight it to will slow down air flow and cause the same thing I suggest you cut the length of the hole to stop this problem if you can, it is not hard to do and I can give you the instructions if you post here.

if the dryer doesn't shut off you need a new timer. have you replaced the igniter or glow coil? it needs to glow white not orange in order to ignite the gas.

SOURCE: locating fluff filter on aeg washer/dryer

I have the same problem with mine. There isn't a fluff filter that you can get to easily. When the engineer came to fix something else he showed me this big tube thing inside the machine that had the inside coated with fluff. The machine wasn't very old and I only use the dryer for underwear (apparently towels make it much worse). So ... you'll have to get someone to dismantle the machine to get to the fluff. I was wondering if it is covered by the guarantee because it is ruining my washing.

Same again!
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!
John C

I have a hotpoint tdc62 when on it works fine apart from a grinding noise when the drum is going round could it be the belt? its 5 years old never been changed many thanks


More than likely worn rear drum bearing or worn front bearings.
Remove the rear panel, and you should see the drum shaft, check for wear here.

Most likely, the orange relay switch (Schrack RT314024) on the circuit board of the dryness module (blue colour) is faulty. RS electrics and Farnell has it. Costs £2.50. Mine had the same problem and changing it sorted it. I also replaced all the four small electrolyte capacitors on the circuit board (which you don't have to replace - I am a bit fussy with capacitors).
Your thermostats and heating elements are good (don't change these).

Hotpoint condencer dryer TDC62


Several reasons for it not to heat.
Obviously faulty heater, and or thermostat(s). You need meter to test. Heater and stats are located at the rear of the m/c behind a removable panel.
Faulty programmer, faulty heater relay.
Check filters etc, refer to instructions for this.
Plz leave feed back on this .
Thanks.

Hi,
I think the problem still lies with the thermal switches, they have a tendancy to corrode where the spade connector attaches to the body (see pic)
