Question about Hotpoint Dryers
Hi, My tumble dryer turns on but when it starts the only thing that runs is the water pump. I have opened the pump and cleaned out all lint etc, the float is not stuck and is free to move. The channel from condenser to the pump is now clear and free of lint and the area beyond the condenser is dry and clean. The empty water light comes on when the machine starts but it then moves to the programme when I press start. Any help would be great? Thanks Jamie

Got a similar problem with an HNC172. The supplier said it is the water indicator sensor that is not working. He fixed it! It still stops!!! Clear lint from the trap in the door. Empty what little water there is in the tank, then make sure it has a good shove to get it back into place and the tube/catch is well joined back. Also take out the condenser unit above water tank, stick in the bath and put the shower hose through it to clear lint. Recommend getting a tea strainer over the plug hole or you block your drain as quite a bit comes out. It helped for a while, but it still has problems. Might be the thermostat for the heater? check the error codes. They flash a different number of times within 15 seconds to indicate which problem is happening.

could be a switch in there or one of these
This sounds like the thermostats
