    I have the same problem. There is no problem when the machine is off - it does not fill with water. It is simply that at some point in a drying cycle of any length the clothes will become soaked. This used to happen occasionally but now occurs nearly every drying cyle.

    same problem here, only when using the dryer no water when off and intermittant

    This does not occur when it is off on mine. The wash cycle is fine, however when i try to do a usual dry cycle (either straight after wash or seperatlaly) the clothes come out hot and wet and i can hear water in the bottom of the drum.

    I have the exact same problem. Unfortunately I have just moved into a new home, the machine was already fitted within the ktchen units and there is not a manual. Is there supposed to be a vent pipe or is there a condenser tray I should be looking for. Were does all the fluff go if the dryer does the job like a convention dryer.

Dryer not drying cloths even though it does the full cycle? hotpoint wd63

There are several reasons for this to happen.
  1. Heater element faulty.
  2. Thermostat faulty.
  3. Heater relay faulty.
  4. Blocked condenser.
  5. No cold water going in on drying cycle.
You really need a meter to test the components with, to get the bottom of the problem.
Please rate my solution.

Dryer problrm

The sympoms are typical of a couple of reasons.
  1. Blocked condenser.
  2. faulty cold inlet valve, not letting water in to condense steam back to water.
When it is on the drying cycle, see if you can see water pumping out of the drain at. a slow rate.
If you can see no water at all coming from outlet hose, then chances are it is a faulty valve, and you will have replace same.
Plz rate my solution.

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.

Dryer not wrking - letting in water

Does the water come in all the time? If so turn off each supply line faucet to identify which line is leaking and take that valve inside the washer apart and clean it out, if not completely replace that module. Let me know more about what exactly is going on.

WD63 Drain during wash but not dry cycle

the chances are you water valve has gone the drying cycle requires water to convert steam back to water, or poss your condenser is blocked this cant be cleaned easily better to change I dont know how competent you are if you have a muti meter you could test the soleniod which should have a resistence of around 3800 ohms. the valve is a triple one and the one that serves the condenser is the one facing downwards, disconnect power,take back off, turn water suppy off,take the 2 leads off the bottom solaniod only ,put your meter on contacts make sure you have selected crrect range on meter ie:10mohms if 0000 solanid faulty.Change valve if reading says 3800 valve ok change condenser
