Sounds like your heating element and/or thermostats blown. I've just replaced both for £45. Is working fine now. However if you decide to go ahead and do this ensure that the element hasn't been damaged by any other reason (such as water getting onto the fan) otherwise the fault will reoccur. If your electric is tripping then water may be getting onto the element. The parts are relatively easy to remove and replace and are located behind a large metal panel on the back of the machine.

No hot air blowing - cold air only. Hotpoint Aqurius condenser dryer.


We have a full video library on appliance repair video’s
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 open circuit)
4 Modern tumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuit boards) these have programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an error code showing you were the fault is.
5 Faulty connections and burned wires may also be the fault.

Blows cold air , it still spins, but doesnt heat up.


Is this a condenser dryer or vented?

On the condensers, if the water collector is full it will only blow cold air. Sometimes the water pumps that bring the water to the collector bottles can go and it makes the dryer think that the bottle is full, therefore it will blow cold air.

Hope this helps!

Dryer not heating up


I hate to tell you but get ready for more problems with this drier, it has a bad track record. In some cases cleaning the condensor out and drying the unit well will allow the unit to function again. Once a month you need to empty the condenser unit, this is under the bottom panel at the front of the tumble dryer, you simply pull the panel down, undo the condenser and pull it out (it is normal for there to be some water in the tubes when you do this), you then have to flush the condenser by pouring water through it in either your sink or tub. Make sure that there is plenty of room around the drier and empty the water container often. This curcuitry of this unit it sensitive to high humidity and can cause the unit to not function properly. So with condensing dryers you have to work on keeping them clean. Let me know how it goes. Later DRRXR

My hotpoint aquarouis ctd00 tumble dryer is heating but no air is blowing through. also there is no water collecting in the water tray


Check all filters and air vents at front and rear of m/c, to make sure they are all clear., do not overload, make sure you have selected right heat setting, and the correct drying time.
It is not usual to feel air blowing out of dryer, because it is a condenser dryer.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint tdc62p changed thermostats as blowing out cold air,


Make sure that all filters are properly cleaned, and that the air inlet and outlet vents are clear. Make sure water container is empty.
The best way to clean the filter at the bottom is to run cold water through it, this will clear out all the lint.. Make sure you have the correct stats ( there are many for the hotpoint range) and that you have them in the correct position on the heater back plate.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.

Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry


I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.
