How do I change the element on Hotpoint Dryer

Hi, I hope you can help me. How do I change the element in my Hotpoint Dryer TDC62. The elements are like those of an old fashioned electric fire, but one is broken and I cannot get it off to take it to the shop. I am hoping to get a replacement element.
Many thanks, Pauline

It will be a faulty thermostat or element more than likely, or a broken wire.
Remove top cover, and you will see the heater manifold over to the right side, there you will see the element and thermostats.
You will need a meter to test them.
Hope this helps.

I am looking to replace the heating element on an old hotpoint electric dryer and cannot locate how to find it.

Depends when the dryer was made, older models had the element at the front behind the front panel.
More recent models all have the element located at the rear of the dryer..
Hope this helps.

Ive got a hotpoint tdc62 dryer and have changed the belt on it. it worked for a few seconds and now nothing any ideas?

If it was working ok before you changed the belt then i suspect a wire has come off somewhere. re trace the work you did and you hopefully will find the problem

Hi, my hotpoint wd860g washer dryer keeps tripping the fuse box. sometimes 20 mins in to a wash and sometimes up to 40 mins and then will keep tripping over and over. then it will run for a bit again and...

The most common reason for this is a Short circuit dryer element.
the best way to find out is to isolate the dryer and try it.
UNPLUG FROM MAINS FIRST... remove lid, you will then see the dryer box. on there is a fan (2 wires) thermistor (little wire plug goes in there) possibly a thermostat with a red or yellow dot in the middle or it could be a thermal fuse which looks like a long yellow thick wire, and finally the element, There are 2 different types of element, what you need to do is disconnect the wires to the element, put insulation tape around the ends of the wires and tuck them out of the way of the metal dryer box.
Put it on a wash cycle, if it does not trip then it is the dryer element.

Please note, with these wires disconnected, you will not be able to do a dry cycle as lights will flash.

Hope this helps..

Please rate my help.

Most likely, the orange relay switch (Schrack RT314024) on the circuit board of the dryness module (blue colour) is faulty. RS electrics and Farnell has it. Costs £2.50. Mine had the same problem and changing it sorted it. I also replaced all the four small electrolyte capacitors on the circuit board (which you don't have to replace - I am a bit fussy with capacitors).
Your thermostats and heating elements are good (don't change these).

There is no circuit breaker in this dryer as such.
Establish that you have got power to the m/c, if you have, then could be faulty door switch, or you may have inadvertantly pulled a wire off somswhere.
Try the dryer in another socket and make sure you know that the fuse is a good one.

I think the problem still lies with the thermal switches, they have a tendancy to corrode where the spade connector attaches to the body (see pic)
