That noise is usually associated with a failed AC motor that turns the dryer drum.

Hi I just replaced the element on my hotpoint aquarius it work fine for about 10 minutesthen just went to cold air I checked the element and it seems fine what else could cause this to happen.

Check your thermal fuse. Also, the upper limit thermostat could have taken a nose dive. Another culprit could be the centrifugal switch on the motor, but that's pretty rare. Also, make sure your vent hose and venting system to the outside is clear of any obstructions. That's usually the reason why elements and thermal fuses burn out.

Good luck!

No heat

Check on the back of the drum for a thermal fuse or relay. Common fault on tubledryers is no power to heating coils becuse of blown fuse or most likely the relay to heating coils is dirty. have to be cleaned about every 2/3 years depending on use.

Hotpoint aquarius washer dryer wd63 1100 spin - my fuse went just as i was switching the machine on - so the door locked and wont open - changed the fuse, door was still locked so thought id let the wash...

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

No power??

It's more than likely its the door lock, if not check the timer contacts on the top front connection block, if they have blown it will need a timer & door lock

Aquarius WD645 - dryer has stopped heating up

there is a safety device to prevent overheat. this can be a resetteble stat ie with a little button in the middle - press this button and there may be a little click as it resets. dryer will then work.
other type of safety device is a thermal fuse. this will be mounted on top of the dryer duct inside a sleeve. test for continuity and if open circuit, replace it
