Question about Hotpoint WD62 Front Load Washer / Dryer

Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 WD62 (Tumble drying issue).

Our washing is always damp after it's been "Tumble Dried"! I note that some washer dryers have a long tube coming out of back of machine and through he wall of the house. Is our Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 WD62 meant to have one? It hasn't - the person who installed the machine did not fit one nor mention the need for one. I just wondered where all the condensation goes from the drying process. Is this the root of the problem? Please advise.

    Okay, thanks for the assistance which was useful.

    Can you offer any solutions to eradicate the problem?

    We do run the machine for quite a while before removing the clothes, but they remain somewhat damp.

    Is this to be expected, or should they be bone dry?

When you open the door at the end of the dry time, is there lots of steam???

if so it can be one of 2 probs, the 1st is check the condensor unit which is on the back of the drum/tank, its a cream/blue colour and will be full of fluff lint. clean this out and retry. if that does not cure it will prob be the 3 way inlet valve sticking causing the machine not to condence

No the steam from the dryer part comes out of outlet tube the same tube were the water comes out hotpoint washer/dryers use a condensing chamber which allows the steam to cool down a pass through it as water does and through the outlet pipe

Loud noise when spin drying, rumbling sound, sounds like concorde taking off! Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 washer dryer WD62

Remove rear panel of washer, and remove drive belt.
Spin the drum by hand, and if it feels rough, or is noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed, quite a big job to do.
Please rate my solution.

Door Locked. Cannot open. Washine inside.

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

Where do I drain the tumble dry water on a hotpoint wd62 wash/dry

remove the top panel by unscrewing the 3 screws at the back of the washer dryer . remove the top and then remove the back metal panel. the screws are down the side and all around the back of the panel. once you have removed the panel check for the black rubber hose that connects to the drum. remove the clip holding the rubber hose by prising it with a small screwdriver. be careful as the water will flow out quite quickly. Check the hose pipe for any blockages and clear as required.

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.................

Not drying

the steam gets condensed back to water and pumped away so sometimes draining problems cause poor drying. is the machine plumbed in according to handbook?
also your dryer filter may be blocked but this is not accesable without the dryer box being stripped down.

Aquarius 1200 wd62 - Dryer not working

Most likely it is some sort of blockage in the vent, although it could be a bad blower. Check the lint filter and vent openings for a blockage.
