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

SOURCE: Condenser on Hotpoint Aquarius dryer not collecting water

I think that I have already suggested some possible reasons for the prob you are experiencing with your dryer, but I don't think I have mentioned the fact that the pump could be fauty, you should be able to hear it running, just a thought , you never know.

SOURCE: model nbxr453evoww takes too long to get hot

Sounds like your heating element is on its way out. If you understand one it is just wires that coil around a shroud,over time it only has to get weak or break in one spot.I suggest replacing it.

SOURCE: Hotpoint nvl333gyoww gas dryer heats for a few

here are a few reasons that you will get heat for a few min and then no heat.

1. if the vent is cloged, anywhere in the flexable hose to the wall or from the wall to outside. If the vent is cloged the flame in the unit will widen and the thermostat hi limit will shut she burner off untill it cools.
2. The coils for the burner could be bad and will allow the burner to light a couple of cycles and then will get hot and internaly disconect the coil untill it cools down and then will repeat and will get worse over time.

The good news :) The ignitor is good if it lights a flame, If the flame burns for more that 10 sec then the flame switch is mostlikley good. The main valve in most cases will also be good.



Im using Model # NVL333GY0WW

Turn dryer on and it starts to heat up and then the heat stops and within about 2-3 minutes will start to heat up and then the heating up stops.


Clean out the exhaust vent tubing really good.. A moister sensor will detect any build up of lint and shut the heat off

Fridge water filter replaced now flows very, very slow


Hi .. first I would try and eliminate the filter as the problem. Remove the filter and try the water again. If the water flows strong, then the filter is the problem. If the water stills sputters and is low flow, then there is a partial blockage in the internal tubing , or a problem with the supply. If you roll the fridge out to get at the suppl. you could shut it off and disconnect the supply tube from the fridge, then turn the water on slowly to check the flow at the supply. If the flow is good there , then the blockage is internal.

Error F05 indicates pressure switch jammed on full.
Remove lower rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove large black hose fastened to drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve the problem.

Heat only works for a minute and then the heat stops


There is a thermostat that regulates temperature. Your dryer MIGHT be overheating. Check your lint filter, vent, and vent hose for blockage first. If not, it might be time to replace the heating element.

Hotpoint dryer takes 3-4 70 minute cycles per load to dry, no matter what size load


Check your rear exhaust vent for blockage.
Your dryer has 2 heating elements.
If it gets warm at all at least one element is broken.
The operating thermostat could also be bad.
Burned/broken wire at heater terminal.
Unplug the dryer.
Remove the front panel, then the belt and drum and inspect the heater and thermostats.

Dryer keeps stopping


Plugged filter or exhaust hose to outside could be clogged...Have someone turn the unit on and go out to see how much air is coming out of the vent. Should be a bunch. I'm guessing you have a blockage somewhere causing the unit to shut down and not catch on fire.

No Water At the Door


I use an old style "pipe cleaner" soaked in very hot water and pushed up the tube at the door. The blockage is usually about 3-4 inches up the tube where it freezes. The hot water on the pipe cleaner takes only a minute or so to soften the plug enough for it to push through. Re-heat the pipe cleaner in the hot water often so it melts quicker. The ice plug is typically about 1 inch long in that small tube so it doesn't take much to get the water flowing again.
