My hotpoint vtd00 dryer seems to have stopped drying

We put the washing in and set it to dry but after the time it normally used to take to dry the clothes they are now still quite damp, and there's loads of damp fluff on the inside of the door. It isn't making any weird noises, and we've cleaned the filter. Any ideas???

Re: My hotpoint vtd00 dryer seems to have stopped drying

Have you cleaned the exhaust ducting? The duct that runs from inside to outside. Try that first. Sounds like your exhaust line is blocked. Also with the filter out get a flash light and look down the venting if alot of lint vaccum out. NOTE: Unplug the unit, wheather gas or electric.....and if it is a gas shut off the gas to the dryer before moving just in case something gets loose while moving. Hope this helps.

Thermostat gone pop on vtd00 and some other hotpoints these are resteetable with a pin at back of stat ,,, usual cause is blockage on rear vent pipe or taking load out and reusing before the cool down period has finished .. this should be used at the end of each cycle

Check the timer, the timer on mine has started moving round far too quick so 45 mins becomes 5 mins!

My kenmore elite #110.73012181 electric dryer with autonsense feature no longer sensing, keeps on drying for hours after clothes dry when on less dry mode or normal dry mode

The drying circuit has to have a sensor to control heat and the timer controls time (on timed drying). Often sensors fail "open" and dryers stop drying. This sensor or the circuit seems to have failed closed (runs all the time). I suspect the sensor has failed in the drying control.

Hi. Our dryer will start normally and then the

HI. This will occur when the there are issues that concern the integrity of the timer motor. This mechanism is responsible for the rotation of the timer module.It is damaged at this time, and it must be replaced asap.

A damaged timer motor will affect the nature of the drying cycle. It is the main initiator of all functions during the selected cycle.

Hotpoint VTD00 tumble dryer wont stay on! help!

Remove the top cover and spray the affected botton with WD 40. it may be just sticking.
Make sure it is free and not catching on anything.
It will not hurt the dryer by taping it up,nor will it catch fire,
If it is still sticking, then it is a fairly simple job to replace.
Plz rate my suggestion for solution.
Thanks, and plz feel free to leave any comment.

Hotpoint vtd00 just replaced the belt for 3rd time put kids clothes into dry and loads of smoke and burning any clues?

Sounds like the motor is turning but the belt is not so, the belt is just setting there burning. You should be able to turn the drum by hand, check the drum rollers and the belt tension roller.

LG DLG2532 Gas Dryer will only dry on manual setting

If you use dryer sheets, LG recommends no.  Dryer sheets cause a film that will not allow the sensors to feel the clothes moisture during the drying process thereby causing the computer to countdown the timer quickly.  To clean out the sensors, use a green pad and scrub the sensor bars inside the dryer drum.  That should remove the film left by the dryer sheets.

Error code on dryer display

Check your breakers. Mine was doing the same thing, all of the 120v parts of the machine were working. (blower/drum motor/ lights) However the element wasn't coming on. Went to the breaker and found that one side of the 2 pole breaker was tripped. Turned both off and back on. Heater started working again.

When you set the dryer on settings such as normal or permanent press, it engages the various sensors that help the dryer to make the most efficient use of energy. Moisture sensor, heat sensor etc. (THAT IS WHAT TURNS ON YOUR AD SETTING) Normally it selects a time based on factory settings that it believes your load should be dried by. Say 50 minutes at Normal (high heat, normal) Every so often during the cycle, the machine will check the humidity sensor and the other sensors and try to see if the dryer is still on schedule. Sometimes it will determine that more time is needed, occasionally less time. While it calculates, it displays the Ad meaning that the machine is on auto dry. TO TURN OFF AUTO DRY, set it to a time setting instead of a DESCRIPTION setting.

Problem with my Kenmore 62622 Electric Dryer

It could be the elements inside dryer, one or more could be bad, the different settings causes the dryer to do different things, so whatever your setting on ultra dry may not be operating at full force. Hope this helps.

Bad smell

washers and dryers dont make smells themselves its a problem with something u might be putting in it. if u tend to add alot more detergent then usual to your towels then they never completely rinse the water out and will have a mildew smell
