Dont forget to check for a blocked Float Chamber (Where the Water container snaps into).
I had similar problem, changed the stats to no avail. Only then to check the chamber to find it clogged wint wet lint causing micro switch to activate (ie Simulating a Full Container), hence no heat.

Try it out, hope it helps

Re: hotpoint aqaurius TDC32p dryer

Well there is no diagram but i can advise you that he stats on the dryer are located on the back.. if you remover the panel that protudes outwards. yes the big funny shaped thing at the back.. Once that is removed then you will easily see that the stats are located at the top end with like orange and blue and i thnk white wires going into them .. these are easily replaced and are very common faults,, but make sure you take a visual check of the heater to make sure it is not damaged .. hope this helps..

Dryer runs but doesnt heat up at all any ideas on whats wrong?


This could be alot of things and with no model # ..its hard to tell you exactly..but, make sure your getting 220v . the dryer will run on 110v, if one side of breaker is weak or will still run, but no heat..I suggest, turning on and off your breaker several times...this may help reset it...other than this, it could be, heater, safety thermostat, thermostat, motor switch, timer..the list goes on...if you have a volt.ohm meter you can check all I mentioned and finding problem will be a snap....Bruce Denton

HOTPOINT TDC32P Dryer - No Heat Usual story. Have found the green spot thermostat had gone open circuit but reset it. All three stats including the one over front door test for continuity. Heating element...

Could well be a intermittentt sticking relay, I have experienced this myself, fitting new relay solved the prob, I doubt you will be able to obtain a wiring diagram , in any case , you should not need one.
I would fit a new relay myself if I were you.

My hotpoint aquarius dryer is not got any heat

Most likely reason is failure of thermostat/s or heater element.
As you do not specify model, Ir is difficult to tell you exactly where to locate them, but generally speaking they are at the rear of the dryer.
Hope this helps.

Tdc32p condenser dryer has low heat only

It could be, also is the condenser taking the water out ok into the drawer, if not they could be a blockage in the pipes and a pump underneath the dryer may be blocked or faulty.
this could be the cause also.

Dryer element not working

Sounds like it could be a faulty heater relay.The relay is located at the top behind the console panel.
It is a clear plastic box with the contacts inside it.
If you have tried everything else, then this what I would go for.
Hope this helps.
Please leave feedback.

Hotpoint aquarius tdc32p not heating up replaced old heating element but still not heating

I had the same problem which turned out to be the thermostat.
You can fix it at home easily with only a screwdriver.

  1. Remove the strengthening bar on the back
  2. Remove the small cover in the centre of the rear
  3. Remove the funny shaped cover from the rear (NOT THE WHOLE BACK PLATE) This will give access to the heating element and the 2 thermostats above it.
  4. Take off the thermostat with a green dot on and look at the bottom metal plate. If it's concave, bang it on the floor until it pops back out. (Seriously)
  5. Re-fit the parts in reverse order and you done!
