I have a hotpoint ultima ctd80 which i have had the last 2 years, it has shown error codes f11, f10 and f15, every time i fix this problem by first switching off and unplugging appliance then removing small cover from back (middle with 2 screws) then larger panel that the smaller panel overlapped. once you remove these you will see the heating elements, remove the 2 screws at the back off this, remove cover carefully then at the top you will see two things (not very technical lol i am a woman), with a pin press the pin in the one with a hole, mine makes a clicking sound when i do it, not sure if it meant to but works for me. put all parts back together and thats the job done. make sure both fillters and water emptied regular, hope this helps and saves you a fortune on call outs

My Hotpoint tvf770 starts but does not appear to heat and it stops after a few minutes. I have checked the filter and exhaust tube for blockages, both clear.

Suspect a broken/burned off wire to the heater element, or 'open circuit' of the heater element, or thermostat fault

Hello I have a hotpoint tcp 1p tumble dryer

this sounds like the thermostats

You-Tube video "sfGInKA3yp8" placeholder (do not delete)

Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.

Hotpoint ultima super silent w f 840 shows fault 03

Code f03 means wash thermistor open circuit, this is normally part of the heating circuit, suggest you test heater and thermistos located in the end of the heater, and replace if necesscary. If heater o/k , then could be bad connection to control module, or broken wire, if still no joy, then call Hotpoint.
Please rate my solution.

Hotpoint ultima condenser dryer TC71 is running cold

Thermostats rarely go. You could have a bad heater or even a voltage problem. Even if the dryer runs, the voltage can still be wrong, it only needs 110 volts to start the motor but must have 220 to have heat.

Hotpoint ultima tumble drier condenser has F 10 error code

Error code F10 means common feed of heater or thermostat open circuit.
You need to test the thermostats and the heater element for continuity.
You need a multimeter to do this, assuming you know how to use a meter,then set it on the ohms range for continuity, remove one wire from each stat, and test with meter across terminals of stats,
You should get FSD if stats are o/k.
If you don't, then you need to replace both stats, even if only one is faulty.
It is unlikely to be the element that is faulty, as they rarely fail.
Plz rate my solution.

Hotpoint wd865 dryer stopped working

I always start at the plug to make sure it has 220, a dryer will run but no heat with 110. This was a common problem when everyone used fuses instead of breakers, just an old habit.

Then I check the heating element and thermostats, this must be done with an OHM meter. More than likely it will one of these.

Hotpoint CTD80 Tumble Dryer F03 error

sounds like you will need a thermostat kit and possibly a heater unit, if your getting them shipped to oz you will probably use them. i would change the thermostats first as this will more than likely be the cause.

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply, thanks kj.

p.s if its still broken this time next year i'll come and have a look just waiting of my visa :)

Tumble dryer not drying

Either dryer element has failed, thermostat for drying or the drying condenser fan not working.

There are two heating elements and the top one is for drying.

No heat on tumble dry programme. Display flashed F 13.

You need to replace the heating element for the dryer which is positioned on top of the outer drum. Remove the top cover of the machine and locate the heater.
