Re: hotpoint DLB2450RAL

On auto dry settings, the timer doesn't get voltage until the regulating thermostat is satisfied. A clogged vent will cause this problem, as the dryer is cycling the heat on the hi limit thermostat. disconnect from vent and see if the problem goes away. Also, remember that a voltmeter doesn't lie.

I have a Hotpoint DLB2450RAL and I was having no heat, but drum was turning. I...

This advice is for all ELECTRIC Dryers that have a "No Heat" problem.

Symptom: Dryer turns on, drum spins, but you have no heat.

Any of the following components are more than likely suspect as being bad:

Heating Element
Thermal Cut-Out
Hi-Limit Thermostat

All these components COMBINED, should cost less than $100. If you fix it yourself, you will avoid the additional cost for labor.

If the dryer isn't blowing ANY air at all, but the drum still turns, you may have a bad blower fan assembly inside the dryer. Or, the blower fan assembly may be clogged.

If your dryer performance has been failing (i.e., clothes taking longer to dry), it may be for a reason. You need to ask yourself when the last time you cleaned the dryer ventilation. If you can't remember, or if it has never been done, this can contribute to the dryer failing. All dryers need proper air flow in order to dry properly. If the ducting becomes clogged, the heating circuits will actually overheat and eventually fail. This usually results in the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) blowing or the Heating Element failing or BOTH. When these components fail, they must be replaced. Remove the dryer hose from the back of the dryer and inspect it thoroughly from where it leaves the dryer to where it exits your home. It should be clear with no kinks or clogs. If your vent line runs under a crawl space make sure it is suspended above the ground and has no sags where lint could collect. RULE OF THUMB: The SHORTER and STRAIGHTER the vent duct, the BETTER. After you inspect the vent ducting, turn the dryer on and make sure you have forceful air flow coming form the dryer. This will prove that your blower fan is working properly or not. Since you stated that your dryer is not currently heating, the air will be cold, but you should still have some force behind it. If the air flow is weak, you need to clean the duct work INSIDE the dryer. It is important to keep a dryer checked routinely. I recommend once per season (that's 4 times per year). Dryers are the cause of many house fires. These fires are due to lint accumulations inside the unit catching on fire. A little preventive maintenance can prevent significant problems in the future.

Getting to the heating circuit to determine if the components are good or bad is the next step. If your dryer has the lint screen on the top of the unit, you will need to remove the back panel of the dryer to expose the heating circuits. If the dryer has the lint screen in the door, you will need to remove the lower kick panel under the door by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips. They will be located along the seam in the front about 2 inches in from each side. If this is a Kenmore Elite or Whirlpool Duet, the lower lick panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. (HINT: placing a block of wood under the front feet of the dryer can make access much easier). If your dryer has no lower kick panel, you have to remove the entire front panel on these models. This is accomplished by lifting the dryer top and removing the screws that hold the front panel in place.

NOTE: The heating circuit should be troubleshot with the dryer UNPLUGGED. Dangerous voltages are still present with the dryer turned off. Resistance readings are as follows:

Heating Element (located inside heater box) – remove the two leads from the ceramic terminals on the heating element and take a reading across the terminal points. It should read 9 - 13 ohms.

Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) (mounted to the heater box.) - unplug wires and take reading across connector tabs. Reading should be 0 ohms.

Hi-Limit Thermostat (mounted to the heater box, closest to the heating element leads) - unplug wires and take reading across connector tabs. Reading should be 0 ohms.

If any of the above readings are abnormal, replace the component. NOTE: If the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat is defective it is highly recommended by most manufacturers to replace BOTH components at the same time. They are often sold as a set. Without doing so, these components can cause potentially fail again.

My Daughter has a hotpoint experience tumble dryer and has removed the wireing off the back of the timer and doesnt know which one goes were can any body please help its a hotpiont experience TVEM70C6

Hello Adrian;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
Below is a picture of your timer switch. Also is a video of how to replace the timer switch. You must play and stop the video watching where each color or combination of colors go to each terminal. Orientate your timer in the same position the person in the video is holding the new timer.

It you purchased a new timer switch there will be a wiring schematic in the box. The schematic may be difficult to read.
A new timer will cost $65.00-$85.00 USD


Good Luck,
Peter, Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Hotpoint TVM572 timer is faulty

It is important not to open the door of the dryer if it is still running. The timer controls the cooling cycle otherwise the clothes will get damaged if kept on hot.

It is very likely the timer contacts are frozen at some point and the timer will need some attention.

It is not hard to locate it. I cannot find the actual parts drawing for your model (it is good you have provided the full model details). But to help you locate the part I have found another Hotpoint model that may be similar to yours. Check this drawing to see if the front panel is similar.
Item 100 is the timer.
HOTPOINT Electric Dryer Backsplash blower moto Parts Model NWSR483EB1WW

The actual timer for your model looks like this.
Hotpoint TVM572P Timer

As the clothes are not getting burnt or singed I will assume the thermostat is ok and keeping the temperature within the range.

Dlb2450ralwh dryer

Part number is WE11X103 if that's what your needing.

Above is a link to parts breakdown. Use this ONLY for information, wouldn't buy anything from Sears unless you can't find it cheaper (which you can). At least it will give you a general idea about parts and disassembly.

Hotpoint nvlr333etowb no heat.

Diode? Ain't no diodes. 3a90295.jpgIf all of theses items check good you might have a burred contact inside the timer. These dryers have a timer that is easy to take apart. Gently remove the motor and cover, look for a burr between the leaf switches. File em down smooth. Let me know.

The timer on my Hotpoint dryer doesn't work

More than likely the timer.  If it works automatic and timed it is definitely the timer.  You can usually find them on ebay with a decent warranty, or depending on how much confidence you have in your mechanical ability take the timer apart, look for the burned contacts, clean them with sandpaper and bend them SLIGHTLY.

Turned knob and got a buzz. turned knob again and no sound. Just finished a load and was starting on the next.

Hi. im assuming the buzz came from the timer knob(behind the knob). if so, this will confirm timer failure and, you will need to replace this timer control module in order to restore proper function to your unit.

If the buzz was located behind the start switch, replace as well.
