Plugged filter or exhaust hose to outside could be clogged...Have someone turn the unit on and go out to see how much air is coming out of the vent. Should be a bunch. I'm guessing you have a blockage somewhere causing the unit to shut down and not catch on fire.

We have the hotpoint washer/dryer wdl540 but cannot get the dryer to work, all the clothes come out steamed! we'r not overloading the machine and have tried different combinations but still it wont dry -...

The first problem is that you, like myself, bought this piece of trash. The best way to resolve this problem is not sell it on ebay and never even think about buying Hotpoint again.

Hotpoint DW440 flashiing lights

I have just seen the same problem on a neighbours WD440G. I have tracked down the problem to the main circuit board at the back, bottom of the machine. Transistor/FET Q9 has exploded. There was water at the bottom of the machine and the wiring in the vicinity of the nearby connector was wet.
This neighbour is in no financial position to be able to buy a new board, or get an official Hotpoint engineer to confirm what we already know. Anyone know where I can get a schematic diagram for the board?

Clothes wont dry but gets really hot

Hello, sounds like your cold water feed hose has got a kink in it. The machine needs cold water to condense the steam. Just pull out the machine and slowly slide back into place.

Disconnect the vent at the back of the dryer and dry a load unvented to make sure you don't have a clog in the vent line too the outside causing an air flow restriction, if still not drying check and make sure the blower wheel that circulates the heat inside the dryer isn't broken.

Dryer keeps cutting out

Dryer outlet hose could be plugged or restricted not letting adequate air cirulate. Check this and the filter to be sure both are clear of obstructions. Make sure the flapper at the end of the dryer vent is working correctly.... A blocked vent will cause the temp to get too high and the unit shuts down rather than burn down the house.

Washer - yes, dryer - NO!

may be as simple as a broken wire to the dryer heat element, take the top off & check if you have 240 volt supply to the dryer heat element
