Question about Hotpoint NWXR473EV Dryer

4 Answers

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???

    Thanks for that, I did check the duct pipe and it was full of water. Good advice!

    We bought our Hotpoint about 10 months ago, and we have the same problem with water coming out the bottom of the machine, and a lot of wet fluff around the door. It is really depressing as it is virtually brand new!

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!

I have jst purchased this washer today, however the dryer takes ages,,,,,,their seems to be water going in when its drying, clothes come out hot, but still as damp as when i put them into dry.


Hi, this is normal for a washer dryer, water isn't actually going in, it is condensating and then being pumped away.

when you use the dryer program your are only meant to put half the washing load or less in at a time if there is too much wet washing in the machine it will take forever to dry as it cant get rid of the amount of condensation quick enough so some of it is reabsorbed into the clothes and so it goes on.

so the trick is only to put in a maximum of half the full washing load.

Hope this helps.

My SimpleTech USB 2 .0 External Hard cover got sticky. I kept for quite sometime and when I brought it out, the cover has gotten sticky. How do I clean this?


Turn the device off.
Disconnect any AC adapter.
Dampen a cloth with some dish-washing liquid.
Wipe the surface -- the object is *NOT* to get any liquid INSIDE the enclosure.
So, wipe with that damp cloth, and immediately use a dry cloth to absorb any dampness.

I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR6646BI-12 the clothes feel warm but not hot and they are still damp


The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
  1. Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
  2. If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.

  1. If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time.
Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
  1. Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)

  1. To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
  1. With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
  1. Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
Hope this works............

My clothes are still very damp after one run in the dryer. I remove the lint every time and check to see if everything is plugged in and not restricted. The dryer gets hot and turns but leaves the clothes...


Could be the timer switch is not giving you the right drying cycle.
Try to change dryer cycles from the one setting that you would normally use to a different cycle and see what happens.
Or if you have a timed type timer switch, put it to 60 minutes and see if that helps. If it does then you may need to replace the timer switch.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Whirlpool AWZ410 Washer/Dryer Washes But Will Not Dry!


I have the same problem. The half load / drying button is pushed in; the drying time set; I've reduced the load to almost nothing, but it won't dry. I've tried numerous cycles. The clothes spin, but are still damp at the end.

How would I go about checking my lid switch or fixing my clutch, if that's the problem?

When clothes are dryed on the perm press cycle either reg dry or very dry, they are still damp. I have to run it through 2 or more times to get them dry. I'm told by Bosch that is what perm press is...then...


You may not be getting sufficient air flow--remove the lint filter and wash it with detergent and hot water. Also clean excessive lint out of the air vents (under the filter too). Don't use 'perm press' if you want things absolutely dry. Remove and hang up before they cool. 'Damp dry' really means 'don't dry' I guess!

Washer/dryer combo- i just want to use the dryer!


You can check this by closing your faucet on the wall, & trying the spin only option. If you suceed in the clothes being dry, you have an inlet problem, replace the water inlet valve at the top of the machine, you can do it yourself. Power off the mains. You could also check out your filter & pump.
