This is a diagram of your particuliar unit. These Hotpoints are manufactured by GE. The heating element is right behind the drum itself. First is to unplug the unit. Open the door, and look at the top edge of the top of the door. You will see two screws that hold the top down. Remove these screws, then lift the top off. You will have to reach your hand under the drum (and really reach around) and unhook the belt from the idler pully and motor pully. The drum is now free to pull out, directly forward. Your heating elements are now right in front of you. Be sure you check both for drooping, touching each other or the sides, broken wires, etc. Also, these elements are very, VERY expensive. They make a rewire kit that will save you a TON of money. Instructions are included with the kit, Be sure when you put the drum back in, you grease the rear bearing slide and plug.

Heater Assembly (whole unit) Part Number WE11X103 $90.00
Restring Kit: WE11X203 Part Number $35.00

Also, both of these parts are usually found on E-Bay in groves. Do yourself a favor, do not buy them from Sears, they have too high a mark-up, shipping is also way to high, and takes forever to get there. Let me know if you need further help. Thanks and good luck!!!!

Where will I find the heat reset button on my tcm580 condenser dryer

Hello Mandy, I am not sure what you mean by a heat reset button; perhaps explaining what the problem is, I may be able to assist you. Are you referring to the dryer motor's overload reset button? As a safety feature, a dryer has a high-limit thermostat and either a thermal fuse or thermal cut-off fuse.

In the event of poor air flow where there is no proper ventilation to the heating element- the internal temperature of the dryer exceeds its high-limit, the dryer will shut-down; once it cools off, you should be able to run it again.

However, if the thermal fuse (located on the blower housing) or the thermal cut-off fuse (located on the heater housing) goes, the dryer heating element will will not heat up or the dryer will stop running altogether.

Please note, a dryer will have either a thermal fuse OR a thermal cut-off fuse, but not both.

By-the-way, there has been a recall on certain models of HotPoint Creda, and Indesit tumble dryers due to a fire hazard risk; I am sending you the link...If your dryer is manufactured by HotPoint model TCM580, then your dryer maybe affected. Read the info in the link- it'll give you instructions on how to determine if your specific dryer is affected and what to do.

Model number LER4634EQZ

I looked up your model and it is the same as a roper dryer I repaired some time ago. I did a video on it entitle roper dryer no heat. I believe you will be able to repair the machine you have if you watch the video. The dryer runs so the fuse mounted on the blower is fine. That means it is either going to be the heater element, one of the heater element safety limits mounted on the heater housing, the timer, or a bad electrical breaker/elkectrical receptacle. The motor runs on line 1 and neutral and is a 120 volt motor. This means the breaker could be open o the line 2 side and no power is getting to the element so you need to first verify power to the unit is 240 volts. Remove the rear panel and look for open components on the right hand side which is the heater assembly.

Hotpoint nvlr333etowb no heat.

Diode? Ain't no diodes. 3a90295.jpgIf all of theses items check good you might have a burred contact inside the timer. These dryers have a timer that is easy to take apart. Gently remove the motor and cover, look for a burr between the leaf switches. File em down smooth. Let me know.

My kenmore dryer is running but not heating - model # 110.66642501 - is 3 years old

CHeck if you have 220v at the dryer. The motor is 110 the heater is 220. If you have this then you'll have to access the inside and test the voltage at the heater with the unit turned on and running. If you have voltage then at the heater your element is probably bad but sometimes there is a safety fuse or switch inside or on the element case.

If you don't have 220v at the element with it runnign the typical items are the timmer, the safety(s) switches, the opperating thermostat, the motor cintrifgal switch and there may be more. Consult your diagram for complete circutry.

No heat in dryer

if you can see your heating element, use a meter to test for continuity. remove the clips or wires attached to the terminals of the heating element and put the probes of the meter.
the reading should be close to short since it is a heater. maybe 1 to 10 ohms.

Hotpoint Aquarius Condensor Dryer not getting Hot

I don't know Hotpoint models but I do know Malber models very well which also have a condensing dryer. The dryer has a fan and a heating coil or heating element, similar to a hair dryer. If you are getting no air flow, then it could be the fan. If you are getting air flow but it is not hot, then it is probably the heating element which burnt out. In the Malber machine, the top cover comes off and you can see an aluminum duct on top with two terminals sticking out the side. These two terminals go to the heating element inside the duct, and the heater element is like the heating element in an oven. You have to remove the duct and then it splits into a top and bottom half, and then you can remove the heating element to replace it. The way to tell if it is bad is to run the machine in a dry cycle and see if there is 110 volts across the heating element terminals. If there is power, but no heat, then the heating element is bad. That element is usually the first thing to fail.
