Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD640 Front Load Washer/Dryer
Hello, my hotpoint wd 440 washer dryer does not wash hoy and also does not heat up in drying mode all other functions seem to operate, this leads me to believe its the heater element or part of. Im not sure where this is could you tell me where to look and also how to test it. thank you
Firstly, try a 90 degree wash. If this does not heat up you can acces the heating element very easily.
Put the machine in a clear area. Put a thick cloth or blanket on the floor and gently lay the machine on its left side, looking from the rear.
Remove the inspection cover at the back and you will see two large connections at the bottom of the drum. This is where the element is. just unscrew it, pull out the element and change it.
It is much easier to do this with the machine on its side as you can get at things from the back AND the bottom!
If you wish, you can get a test meter, remove one connection and check the element for continuity before you remove it

Both the 'wash' & the 'dryer' have their own heating elements, If the 'wash' completes its full cycle including 'spin', then I suspect this heat element is ok.Re the dryer, most likely the heat element circuit is 'open circuit' somewhere, could be the element, thermal fuse, thermostat, or a wire burned out
