Re: Ultima Condensor Dryer

Fixed it. I managed to find out the problem was, it was the two heat sensor at the back of the dryer. Once changed it was ok.
Lets see how long they last.

Re: Ultima Condensor Dryer

On the back of your dryer you have a heater behind the protruding panel... Either you heater element has gone, but most like the thermal cut outs have blown...these are located in the same area..they are small and round looking and are connected to them are wires either side. Anyways check the conitunity of the termal cut outs using a tester if no continuity then they are no good... hope it helps...

Condenser not drying stuff properly

I am hoping your talking about a clothes dryer here. based on the model number you posted here. Does your dryer even feel warm to the touch as in any signs of internal heating? If not then here are some things to check. 1 the basics: Check the circuit breaker and make sure that both of them are in the on positon. Just trip them off and then back on again to reset them. 2. Check the power cord for any signs of a bad connection. It will show up as a dark discoloration. 3. I know you said you checked the lint filter but have you gone outside and verified that the external outlet vent is free of obstructions? If not please check it and clear any obstructions. 4. The heating element itself may be open. Ovetr time they are like light bulbs and the burn out requiring repl;acement. 5. There can be a thermostat failure causing an open circuit and no power to the heating element. 6. The motor switch also controls the heating element circuit and it is actuated when the motor is running. If the switch has failed it will prevent the heating element from being energized. 7. The least likely suspects are the timer and heat setting controls yet either of them can cause a no heat condition. You did not mention if it was a gas or electric dryer and the comments above are for an electric dryer. If you have a gas dryer then you can have 8. a bad ignitor, 9. a bad gas valve, 10. a failed gas regulator. Based on this model number CTD80 it does not cross to anything that I can find. The bottom line is your unit is probably worth the cost of getting it repaired. You may want to check your model number again please and repost it you need more information. It appears this is a UK model. I hope this was helpful. It certainly was educational here.

Hotpoint wd865 dryer stopped working

I always start at the plug to make sure it has 220, a dryer will run but no heat with 110. This was a common problem when everyone used fuses instead of breakers, just an old habit.

Then I check the heating element and thermostats, this must be done with an OHM meter. More than likely it will one of these.

No heat

First thing to check are cutouts located above element. Should have continuity on both. take care element is fragile. Some models have a third located in the door space although this one is rarely prone to fault.

Tumble dryer not drying

Either dryer element has failed, thermostat for drying or the drying condenser fan not working.

There are two heating elements and the top one is for drying.

Hotpoint washer dryer ultima 1200 model WD71S

most like cause is the door interlock is faulty but its one of those jobs that unless you have the right equiptment namely a tester you won't know for sure unless you change it. Could also be the voltage from the control board is't correct so best let someone who knows check it for you.

Dryer does not dry clothes

On the top of the heater box there is a thermal fuse that blows if the dryer overheats, on this model it could occur if the air circulation fan is faulty, or the condenser valve is faulty, alternatively the sump hose filter may be blocked, only a closer inspection of these items will determin which the problem is.
