It is possible that the element has gone, \even after such a short period of time.
If it is only 6 months old, then you need to contact Hotpoint service department, and get it fixed under the guarantee, do not try to fix it yourself,, as you could invalidate the guarantee.
If you look inside your user instruction hand book you will find the telephone number you need to ring to get service.

Thankyou.

The dryer on my hotpoint wdl 520 works but does not get hot!, any ideas?


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

Wdl540 clothes go through drying cycle but come


If there is no heat at all then the heater or the temp sensor or the thermal fuses are defective and need replacing.

Also check that the lint filter is clear of debris and lint. Rinse it if necessary in some mild washing up liquid in warm water and dry thoroughly. Check that the air outlet hose is clear if you have one fitted. Check that the condenser is empty of water and the case is free from dust and lint. Vacuum / brush or wash the outside of the collector in washing up liquid and warm water and dry.

We have the hotpoint washer/dryer wdl540 but cannot get the dryer to work, all the clothes come out steamed! we'r not overloading the machine and have tried different combinations but still it wont dry -...


The first problem is that you, like myself, bought this piece of trash. The best way to resolve this problem is not sell it on ebay and never even think about buying Hotpoint again.

No heat


Check on the back of the drum for a thermal fuse or relay. Common fault on tubledryers is no power to heating coils becuse of blown fuse or most likely the relay to heating coils is dirty. have to be cleaned about every 2/3 years depending on use.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 Washer Dryer not drying.


Hi, I think the problem you have is with the cold water inlet valve? When your machine dries it uses a small amount of water at high pressure through a restricter fitted in the water inlet valve. These break down letting in to much water which cannot evaporate quick enough for it to pump out causing the washing to become wetter than after the wash/spin cycle. The only way of solving this is to replace th tree way water inlet valve. But make sure that the pump is working ok first and that there is nothing in the sump hose trap which is located underneath the washing machine out the bottom of the tub.
Good luck.................

Hotpoint ultima 1200 washer/dryer


Have suffered the same problem. Suggest you remove back (after turning off electrical supply) and look at the water outlet pipe - you may have a sock or two in this - remember to reattach outlet and secure in position.
