Hotpoint aquarius condenser dryer TDC30

Have washed the condenser unit through with a hose to get the fluff out. Was this the correct way to clean it? Also, can i put it back in and use it when its still wet? manual doesnt say. I have a TDC 30p Tumble dryer. I need to change the thermostats. I've found the two at the rear od the machine. Can you tell me where the font thermostat is located.

I would dry it just to be on the safe side, even though it doesn't say so. It can't hurt. The front t'stat should be under the top at or near the drum.

My hotpoint condensed dryer is steaming up my windows and I don't know why as I thought that was the point of the condenser. It's model number is Tcm 850, anyone got any suggestions or can help, thanx


Hello Scot, just make sure the fluff filter is clean and the exit tube for the air is clean they should just slide out fluff filter and pull off the fluff and the air exit tube normally get quite dirty with fluff and debris. So take that out and take it outside and wash it through with a hose from both ends. The water tray should also be emptied regularly but the panel will tell you when that is full.
Hope that helps

Water sensor light keeps coming on even tho tank empty have checked hoses and cleaned large filter at front


try cleaning out the condenser unit, instuctions are on pages 2 and 3 of your manual, if you dont have it download it from the indesit website.
fluff and old stuff gathers in it, if you leave it too long it will burn out the thermostat
instructions below.

Step 1

Open the condenser cover

- grip the handle and pull

towards you.

Step 2

Remove the condenser by

turning the 3 catches, then pull

the condenser towards you. (It is

normal for some residual water

to be left in the tubes).

Step 3

Clean the condenser with running

water over the rear side to

remove any fluff deposits.

Step 4

Replace the condenser unit;

make sure that the unit is

securely in place, that all 3

catches are fixed and that the

position arrows on the front end

of the condenser are pointing

upwards.

HOTPOINT CTD40 CONDENSING DRYER not drying clothes any more.fault codes is on/off light and time delay lights are flashing after 30 seconds of switching the appliance on.the condenser unit is free of fluff...


Without actually taking meter readings I would suggest that its probably the thermostats that are fitted to the heater unit on the back of the appliance.

Thermostat keeps blowing on Hotpoint Aquarius dryer


Remove the filter completely from the bottom left of m/c
Wash out thoroughly under running water.
Reach in with your hand and clear any fluff and gunge you can find there.
At the rear of the filter housing there is a small drainage hole that blocks up.get a plastic bag tie or similar and poke it clear. Also there is a float chamber and some times the float sticks, this being the case , then it involves a complete strip down to clear prob.
Hope this helps
Plz rate solution
.Thanks.

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius dryer TDC30. The 'Empty Water' light stays on even though the reservoir has been emptied. The machine runs but does not warm up. Is this a common problem? has the element...


Float chamber is bunged up ,at the rear of the dryer at the bottom is a black plug / cap pull it off and stick a pipe cleaner
or long cable tie metal coat hanger in it to clear the old wet fluff (have some kitchen roll handy as some water comes out with the wet fluff),
other wise its a total strip down to clear the chamber out.

Hotpoint aquarius CTD00 dryer won't heat


I have just had a similar problem and fixed it today.
The "Empty Water" light was staying on and no heat was given out to dry the load.
I found it to be the float switch in the condenser unit at the back left. It had stuck with fluff and debris. I cleaned out the condenser reservoir and the polystrene float and now all is well.
To get to this unit you must first,
Take of the top and the left hand side panel.
Locate the 2 locking tabs that hold the top half of the condenser onto the back panel and release this part.
Remove this by releasing 2 further tabs that hold it to it's bottom half,
and you will see the float switch assembly on the left hand side.
Clean out the condenser reservoir of any water and aslo clean the polystyrene float, it needs to be free to slide up and down between the plastic guides.
Hope this helps.

Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry


I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.

Cutting out after a few minutes


Is the water supply (for supplying cooling water to the condenser) switched on? If not, there's no real mechanism for removing heat from the machine, and it might reasonably be expected to shut itself down. Once you've got water going to the inlet hose, you might check that the solenoid valve which shuts the water off when the machine is turned off hasn't failed, and that the jet through which the water squirts into the condenser (if that's separate in this model) isn't blocked.
