Re: Hotpoint TDC 30P

Ask your husband to open the service panel and to touch the motor boady when the washer will stop spining. If it is very hot,the problem is with the motor. Before moving to the next step he should unplugged the power cable ! He should then to pull out the motor's brushes (2 carbon units that transfered the current to the motor's armature) and check their condition. If they are in a bad condition they should be replaced. Let me know if you will need for further assistance. Good luck!

My Hotpoint tvf770 starts but does not appear to heat and it stops after a few minutes. I have checked the filter and exhaust tube for blockages, both clear.

Suspect a broken/burned off wire to the heater element, or 'open circuit' of the heater element, or thermostat fault

My hotpoint TDC30 dryer is cutting out after 3 mins ,the drum is warm inside and wont restart till its cold inside the drum

Hi joanne balla...
Sounds like the cyclic thermostat, thermostat, fuse (differnet names for the same part) faulty...replace it.
You will have to remove the back from the machine, look for the air tube going to the vent of your dryer and located on it will be the thermostat/s.
To test it, remove the wires fromthe two terminals and tape them together, then try running your dryer again and if it runs and heats ok then replace the cyclic thermostat/fuse.
Go to the following webpage to see the thermostat

Hello I have a hotpoint tcp 1p tumble dryer

this sounds like the thermostats

You-Tube video "sfGInKA3yp8" placeholder (do not delete)

Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.

My Hotpoint VTD100 tumble dryer trips out the socket circuit after a few minutes use, even when plugged into other sockets This has been happening for about 2 months. The appliance is about 3 years old

I would suspect that the thermostats or heater element are causing the prob.
Try disconnecting them, and trying it without them in circuit.
Please rate my solution.

Hotpoint aquarius condenser dryer TDC30

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.

Have a hotpoint tdc30p dryer that will not heat

Check to see if the new parts fitted are o/k,
If they are, then your problem is probably a faulty control unit or possibly bad connection in the wiring.
If the new parts are faulty, then something else is causing them to fail.
Make sure all filters are clean and that all air vents are clear

It could very well be a thermostat problem, however, it could also be the drive motor itself starting to burn out. Some dryers are equipped with a "Thermal Limiter" that will cut the power to heat. It doesn't seem to be the case for you. I would defiantely look into another thermostat but if it comes down to the motor, depending on the price, You may want to buy a new dryer.
