Question about Hotpoint NBXR463EBWW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My Hotpoint is not drying appropriately. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 cycles to do the job. The heating element seems to turn on but I don't know if it stays on, I just don't feel the heat inside the dryer, but the outside of the dryer is what heats up significantly. Any idea where to begin?

Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

LG Dryer takes too long to dry clothes


Sure the outside vent is not clogged up? If so it will overheat and turn it self off and do a poor job of drying the clothes.

Also check and make sure that all of the heating elements are working properly.

There are two solutions to this problem. The first one is to check your vent hose. It could be plugged up and it won't vent out. Second problem is it your elements. Depending on what model of the dryer the tops of getting it fixed would be $150 with labor.

Machine does not wash an dry dishes some time washes but doesnt dry dishes machine starts up an starts to go through cycle but goes on an on takes ages 2 complete cycle at end of cycle dishes not done


Probably heating element gone, or could be the heating circuit relay on the on board computer.
Not easy DIY jobs unless you are confident.
I found one pin (pin 3) on the relay had blown away, taking with it some of the PCB board, but other have experienced the solder just melting off the pin.

I bought some spare Relays, and rerouted the tracks on the PCB, and it has sort of fixed it - well it heats and seems to be working. The timer is still telling me 73mins instead of 35mins, though the cycle only takes 35mins.

Hi,my hotpoint df 41 trips the mains every time it starts the heat water cycle.I assume the element is faulty.I have looked underneath and all seems dry and clean.Can i buy and fit a new element myself?


Yes, you need to remove the element taking note of the connections and wire colors. Also note the seals used on the element. Remember that sometimes a "cold" element does not show the fault and only once heated does the "short circuit" show. Take the element with you to the dealer as many different elements (shapes and sizes as well as electrical connections on elements are available).

Dryer does not dry as fast as it used too. Takes two cycles to dry a big load. Filters and exhaust are clear, and blower is still blowing. Looking in heat element, seems like botton 1/3 of coils don't turn...


Then part of the heating element is most likely not working because it is burned out or the high heat setting on the control no longer functions. Let me know the model number located most times inside the door on the wall of the door opening. That way I can Help you better, Thanks, Sea Breeze

My dryer takes 3-4 full drying cycles to completely dry.


Since you do have some drying hapening, it is probably a lack of total heat.
Most all dryers have 2 heating elements. One for low heat and both for hi heat. Sounds like you lost one of the elements.

On electric dryers, look for:

1. Safety device has tripped and not reset or has malfunctioned.

2. An element has burnt out. Or a wire to the element has fell off or burnt off due to loose connection.

3. Exhaust system is clogged or restricted, causing safety to active. This stops the heating process. (Don't forget the internals of the unit being clogged too.)

4. Not getting full power to the unit. Reset breaker and verify that full power is to the unit.
(Usually somewhere between 208 to 240 volts, depending on where you are at and the manufacturer of the machine.)

5. Timer has malfunctioned and needs replacement. This does effect power to the elements.

Check these out and let me know how you come out.
Please keep in mind that there is the possibility that a new unit may be cheaper than repairing the one you have. New units have warnanties too.
Choose wisely grasshopper. And Good Luck on your getting it going.

Not drying dishes


Without knowing the make and model of your dishwasher, the most probable causes of no drying is:
1.) RinseAid being empty or not dispensing (as in you never seem to have to refill the dispenser.)
2.) The Heating element has failed. But if it has failed, you would also have foggy, film on your glassware.
3.) The timer is failing to turn on the heating element during the (at least) the heating element during drying cycle.
Good Luck!
