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.

My hotpoint condensed dryer is steaming up my windows and I don't know why as I thought that was the point of the condenser. It's model number is Tcm 850, anyone got any suggestions or can help, thanx

Hello Scot, just make sure the fluff filter is clean and the exit tube for the air is clean they should just slide out fluff filter and pull off the fluff and the air exit tube normally get quite dirty with fluff and debris. So take that out and take it outside and wash it through with a hose from both ends. The water tray should also be emptied regularly but the panel will tell you when that is full.
Hope that helps

Hi i have a hotpoint tcm condenser dryer and dosnt seem to dry my clothes anymore?

You need to clean all the fluff out of the dryer, the heat exchanger gets fluffed up, the fan gets fluffed up.I am assuming that the dryer is getting hot?

I have an IDC75 condenser dryer. Everytime i press the start button to start drying my clothes, it will not allow me to start it and immediatley shuts off the electricity in the whole kitchen. PLEASE,...

the culprit seems to be the CONDENSER BOX. This can quickly get blocked up by soggy wet lint/fluff debris from clothes. Some clothes shed more than others, so it is best to check this frequently. What happens is that when the CONDENSER BOX gets partially blocked up, it fails to condense the steamy moist air into water efficiently, and the insides of the drier start to get damp ans steamy. Depending on the amount of moisture, and the make (Some Zanussi and Hotpoint driers may be vulnerable to this), if any vulnerable electrical part get too damp, then there will be a "flash-over" between a live component and neutral or earth (usually a part connected to the casework). This can cause the kitchen circuit breaker to trip. The fix: remove your condenser box, and give it a good spray clean in the garden with your garden hose. Any large lumps of fluff/lint that are stubborn can be pushed out from between the condenser slots with a plastic ruler. Allow to dry. Then , with power removed from the drier, use a good flashlight checking that there has not been any build-up of fluff behind the condenser box area at the rear. You may need to remove the water tank as well to see more clearly. It is worthwhile also checking the little buffer-tank at the back, where there is a level sensor switch for the water tank level. If it is full of gungy water and lint, try to give it a clean out. Give your machine an hour or 2 to dry out internally a bit before attempting to dry any clothes, in case the breaker goes again. If it DOES go again, try leaving it for linger. If it still fails after being left for 24 hours, there may be a more permanent fault, inside the top back of the dryer there should be a wiring diagram(might be on the back panel of dryer) you will need to trace wires and with multimeter try to figure out what is causing the short. Hope this helps Tim

HOTPOINT CTD40 CONDENSING DRYER not drying clothes any more.fault codes is on/off light and time delay lights are flashing after 30 seconds of switching the appliance on.the condenser unit is free of fluff...

Without actually taking meter readings I would suggest that its probably the thermostats that are fitted to the heater unit on the back of the appliance.

I have a Hotpint Aquarius CTD00 Condenser Tumble Dryer, it has stopped drying the clothes. It occassionally works on the high setting (but makes my clothes smell a bit burned out and shrinking) but it...

it could be blocked up with lint, take out the condenser (silver fin bit) and clean run under a tap if necessary, this is the most important bit of the condenser if this is dirty it reduces the efficiency of the dryer. clean all filters with a vacuum cleaner even remove them and clean where they sit in the machine with the vacuum cleaner.
for the reservoir remove a check the inlet is clean and clear. look inside the machine where this is located and again clean and clear this area, then using something long and thin press open the valve that the reservoir mates with (this can often stick with lint and water residue) be-careful though when opened the valve will **** out water so have a few towels to catch it all. and finally raise the front feet a little this will help the water fall to the reservoir.
if this does not work the internal tank may have fluff and this would be a big job to get to this and clean it you have to strip the drum out which can be a pain.

Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry

I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.
