Hotpoint Utima Logic Sensing Condenser TDC62

When turning on to dry you can here a click but the drum does not turn. Heat is being generated. When you turn to the airing cycle the drum turns. Any ideas. Having moved out to NZ recently need to know if its worth fixing and where I can get parts. Thanks

Re: Hotpoint Utima Logic Sensing Condenser TDC62

Lewensc...this sounds like a classic timer issue. Before replacing it, first turn off your mains breakers and then back on. Check all wiring from the breaker panel to the unit. If okay, then have a quick look at the items in the dryer and test them using a multi tester. If nothing is amiss, replace the timer.

That trouble is cause by an heater that is already open- no connectivity. Also the wire connected to it.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

I have a hotpoint tdc62 when on it works fine apart from a grinding noise when the drum is going round could it be the belt? its 5 years old never been changed many thanks

More than likely worn rear drum bearing or worn front bearings.
Remove the rear panel, and you should see the drum shaft, check for wear here.

Hotpoint TDC62 condenser dryer does not heat up Hotpoint TDC62 drying light does not come on. It flashes briefly when you press the start button but then goes straight off. Why? If you tap the machine the...

Most likely, the orange relay switch (Schrack RT314024) on the circuit board of the dryness module (blue colour) is faulty. RS electrics and Farnell has it. Costs £2.50. Mine had the same problem and changing it sorted it. I also replaced all the four small electrolyte capacitors on the circuit board (which you don't have to replace - I am a bit fussy with capacitors).
Your thermostats and heating elements are good (don't change these).

your dryer is probably worn out in the area of the front slide assy / bearing. They all do it. the drum is binding and stopping the motor sometimes...can be noisy too...

I think the problem still lies with the thermal switches, they have a tendancy to corrode where the spade connector attaches to the body (see pic)
Hope this helps......Dave26db4bc.jpg
