Hiya drodger, i had the same problem with my hotpoint dryer, (same company) if this is a condenser dryer make sure the drawer is collecting the water there is a small hole at the bottom of the drawer if you have a straw poke it in and clean it out, also at the back of the dryer there is a clear plastic pipe and a black one take them both off and clean them, your problem is exactly the same as mine so you will probably have to buy a new heating element (they are a lot cheaper from ebay) they are so easy to fit just 2 clips (i did it and im not dead yet!) hopefully you will then find the dryer will work perfectly, word of advice though clean the collecting drawer out at least once a month.
Hope this helps

I've changed the belt on my indesit is60v but now it will not start could it be a loose wire? my test pen says power is going from the start button to the timer


Just because power is getting to the switch doesn't necessarily mean the switch isn't bad. It is also possible that the motor or timer is defective.

Hi I have an Indesit is70c dryer it seems to work fine for 10-15 mins but then trips the fues box in the house as it cuts out. I've had a look for at the fuse and have cleaned out all filters / condensers....


Do not overload the dryer as the motor can struggle and try to draw to much power.which could cause the trip to go to out, only load drum half full.....this applies to washing machines as well"NEVER OVERLOAD THEM" with washing machines it can affect the quality of your wash as well as putting extra strain on the motor.

RCD trips after different period of time


Sounds more like a fault developing as the cable heats up due to poor connections.trip operates about 30Ma ot .03 0f an amp which is a pest but good in its own right.If you referring to one socket then remove that socket and check for any loose burning leads,Check the fusebox again for any of the above, good idea to run an independant earth around 10 mm cable to main box just in case earthing is bad..hope you get on ok.

I turn my indesit is70c tumble dryer on and after a minute it trips the rcd. I then reset the rcd and turn it back on and it runs for about a minute and then trips the rcd again. Can anyone help me with...


this could be the hater or the motor but sometimes just chafed wireing
Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning open circuit)
4 Modern tumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuit boards) these have programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an error code showing you were the fault is.
5 Faulty connections and burned wires may also be the fault.

Condensing tumble dryer tripping main power switch , power getting to power switch on the machine and buzzing when pushed then tripping at mains. any ideas?


found that moisture is getting to the timer control and causing mains trip!!!!!! need to dry out timer control then all should be well , aided drying with hairdryer, design flaw will cause this on most is70c i think.

Tumble dryer when switched on cuts power to all sockets in house


Hi.
Try it with the heater disconnected, you will find it at the rear of the m/c at the bottom left behind a removable panel.
You may have to remove the top cover and the right hand side panel looking at the m/c from the front. Try it again.
I fit does not trip. then your heater is faulty.
If it still trips then you are probably going to have to call en engineer
