Yes, it sounds like the element is broken, and it is easy to replace if you have some mechanical ability.

Sounds like moisture in heating element. Try removing rear cover over element and see if it needs drying out.

Could be a faulty motor or heater element, you need to isolate the heater and try it again, if it still trips, then I would suspect the motor is faulty, try unplugging the motor at the rear of the washer, and try it again, I'm afraid it is a process of elmination.

My hotpoint wdl520 washer dryer is no longer drying my clothes. I still spins but there is no heat for the clothes to dry. Is there a reset button on this model or is it going to be more serious??


Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Disconnect the heater thermostats by poulling a wire off each stat, and then try it, if it still trips, then could be faulty motor.
The stats are located at the rear of the dryer, behind removeable cover.

My dryer not heatin up and dryin clothes hotpoint aquarius CTD00


Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning open circuit)
4 Modern tumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuit boards) these have programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an error code showing you were the fault is.
5 Faulty connections and burned wires may also be the fault.

My aquairius hotpoint washer dryer wd62 keeps tripping electric why


Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

The dryer fan or dryer thermistor (thermostat) is faulty.
If the fan is working, then replace the thermistor, or check for broken wire.
Please rate my solution.

Where do i Find the heating element on my wd640 washer dryer


on top of the drum there is a metal dryer box. the heating element is connected by 2 wires.
it maybe that a build up of lint has tripped your thermal wire out or the thermistor,(you will have to test the continuity).

i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
