Question about Dryers
My tumble dryer completes the full programme and then stays on 1 minute and therefore doesn't stop. I have timed it and it stayed on 1minute to go for over 20 minutes. I don't want to ruin my clothes or leave it when I go out. I have changed the programme and it still does it, I have turned it on and off and still does It. please help as I am about to get an indesit engineer out otherwise. thanks

Got a similar problem with an HNC172. The supplier said it is the water indicator sensor that is not working. He fixed it! It still stops!!! Clear lint from the trap in the door. Empty what little water there is in the tank, then make sure it has a good shove to get it back into place and the tube/catch is well joined back. Also take out the condenser unit above water tank, stick in the bath and put the shower hose through it to clear lint. Recommend getting a tea strainer over the plug hole or you block your drain as quite a bit comes out. It helped for a while, but it still has problems. Might be the thermostat for the heater? check the error codes. They flash a different number of times within 15 seconds to indicate which problem is happening.

could be a switch in there or one of these
This sounds like the thermostats

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

As a matter of fact I have solved the problem. The dryer is now fully functioning again. :-)
I'll try to explain how to fix the problem:
The water that condenses in the condensor (doh!) drips down into a container situated below the condensor. The moist air that passes through the condensor is the same air that circulates via the clothes, thus it also contains some lint that the filter doesn't catch. Over time there will be some build-up of lint and mucus (?), clogging the tank AND a sensor that sends a signal to the electronics to start the pump that evacuates the condensed water to the removable tank in the upper part of the machine. This messes up the function of the water evacuation system.
Alright, pull out the condensor and find a hatch in the 'floor' in the farther part of the compartment. Below the hatch you'll find the container that collects the condensed water. Start by cleaning it as thoroughly as you can. There are a few 'nooks and crannies', take your time, also flush with some fresh water and maybe some gentle cleanser to get rid of the mucus. The pump and the sensor for the pump are located in the left part (viewing from front of the machine) of the container. Try to flush there as well.
If this procedure doesn't solve the problem you'll have to disassemble the machine to also be able to remove the pump and sensor housing. I had to do this on mine. Quite a few screws to remove and keep track of, but pretty straight forward if aren't too uncomfortable with 'fixing things'.
I have some pictures of the 'project' somewhere, let me know if you would like to see them or if I may help you some other way.

I fixed this problem by cleaning the float in the water tray at the bottom left of the machine. You need to remove the left side panel first. At the back you will be able to see the float that senses whether the reservoir is full through a small window. It should move up and down freely. If it doesn't then you will have to remove the reservoir cover. There is a small screw to remove, then ease the two spring clips so that the reservoir cover is released. You can now remove the float. Give it a good clean and clean inside the reservoir too. Double check that the switch is functioning correctly. You can hear it click.
