Hotpoint Aquarius+ WD645

Hi There,

I was wondering if you know why my washer/dry has stopped drying?

The wash cycle seems fine and the drum rotates etc in the drying cycle but clothes don't dry as its not getting hot?

Is the dryer heater seperately fused? Where would I find it? I can't seem to see it anywhere obvious.

Thanks For your help.

Yes, you will need a test meter. unplug machine, remove to, in the middle on top you will see a heater, you will need to test this. there is also a fusable link, that is incorprated in one of the wires that go to the heater. you will also find to thermostats linked through the wiring, one of these may have a reset button on it.

My hotpoint aqaurius WD420 is not drying.

Could be stat or heater .Remove the top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the right side of washer drum.
The element and stat/s are located on the top of the manifold box.
You willneed a meter to test with, also check for broken wires.

Hotpoint ultime wt640 has a slight squeek seem to be on front around door area had top off and turned drum motor and drum seem fine and springs ok

Remove rear cover of washer, remove drum belt,and from front of washer, spin drum by hand.
There should be no noticeable noise.
If you can still hear sqeek, then it could be a drum bearing that is dry or starting to fail. or the drum is rubbing on the front of the door seal
You should be able to detect what it is this way.
Please rate my solution.

Dryer does not work drum rotates but does not dry on hotpoint aquarius washer dryer model wd64. all other functions operate ok

Probably open circuit heater element, or thermostat/s
Remove top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the top of the drum.
It is a long aluminium box.
The element and stats are located here..
You will need a meter to test the appropiate components for continuity.
Please rate my solution.

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.

Dryer not drying clothes

If you remove the lid you will see the element on top of the drum.
There are a couple of thermal cutouts mounted on it which would be the first thing to check.
Also look for the obvious broken wires etc.
Also can you hear the fan running when machine is in operation?
Hope this helps & thankyou for using Fixya.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 Washer Dryer not drying.

Hi, I think the problem you have is with the cold water inlet valve? When your machine dries it uses a small amount of water at high pressure through a restricter fitted in the water inlet valve. These break down letting in to much water which cannot evaporate quick enough for it to pump out causing the washing to become wetter than after the wash/spin cycle. The only way of solving this is to replace th tree way water inlet valve. But make sure that the pump is working ok first and that there is nothing in the sump hose trap which is located underneath the washing machine out the bottom of the tub.
Good luck.................

Drying cycle runs but does not dry clothes

more than likely that your thermostats have blown if you could smell the heater element getting hot then this will be the case m8
