    My hotpoint dryer is not heating up and i regularly empty the water container and keep the filters clean. The company can offer no advice until a service agent sees it at a cost of 116 euros.

Doesn't dry

Drying consists of removing moisture through heat and airflow. Check to make sure that your venting tube is not kinked somewhere and therefore not allowing the air to flow freely from the dryer.

I have a Siemens e44-10 dryer. It works for few mins and that stops. The light looks like. Up of water flashes. I cleaned all filters, and the water tank is empty. Can u help me?

I had the same problem above. I tok the side panel off and disconected the float and cleaned it. I noticed alot of water mixed with dust. I used a dry cloth to get the water away and made sure the reservour was clean. I assembled everything and it is all working. Tips, make sure the condense tray is emptied after each Washington aswell as the dust filter. Clean out bottom filter once a month. This saved me having to buy a new machine and tok just half an hour. Phew, money in the pocket!

Wd440 not drying. how does the fluff get emptied?

Because it is a washer dryer, there is no fluff filter to clean.
It is self cleaning, because the fluff is washed away by cold water entering the condenser and flushing the fluff away.
Trust this answers your query.

Whirlpoos washer dryer combi awz510e combi.... when it spins it is emptying but when I dry clothes it is filling with water and still heating to dry them....I checked outlet pipe and its not blocked and...

Washer dryers use a small spray of water into the dryer 'condenser' to remove the 'steam' - the condenser is a plastic or metal box on the side of the machine the hot air flows through. To remove this spray, the water pump has to run most, but not necessarily all, of the time the machine is drying.
If the water pump is beginning to fail, it may well be ok on the short wash cycle, but seizes after a long time drying. That would make the machine very slowly fill with water on dry - the heater would be on. I would check the drain pump for wear, and if in doubt replace it - check carefully the filter and drain hose for blockages, and i would remove and clean out the dryer condenser which I bet will be full of fluff and half blocked. Every one i ever checked as an engineer was blocked to some degree!
If the machine is filling FAST on dry, check the insulation resistance of the wash water heater and motor and rest of machine. These are complicated faults and you may well need an expensive engineer like me to call!

Hotpoint WD440 creases clothes badly & takes ages to dry

This sounds like excess steam in the drum. Check that the drain filter is clean as washer driers rely on cold water being taken in to cool the condenser tank during the drying cycle. If the filter is clear, the tank may be blocked with fluff. You have to open the machine a look for a big plastic tank, usually down the right hand side.

Fluff has blocked the drain hole into the water drawer.Try locating the hole and using a small bore plastic tube **** the debris out of the container.

I have to use my indesit condensing tumble dryer about 3 times to get 1 load to dry

Make sure the fluff filter and water tray are clean and empty.
Also make sure it is on High heat setting, and set the correct time.
