Wrinkles clothes terribly. Solutions.


Check your settings on your dryer. See if it's on a longer duration of time to dry. Dryers have different wording depending upon the make and model. If you're trying to dry smaller loads the heat settings s
does not have to be set for very long. Heavier, loads with thicker clothing will need to dry a little longer. When you take the clothes out of the washing machine, do you shake the clothes before putting them in the dryer? And do you use dryer sheets? Believe it or not, they're not only used to help make your clothe's smell fresh but they also help elevate static and a few wrinkles.

One of the 2 breakers for dryer flipped off,


This is a strange situation.

I would normally expect a electric dryer to rujn on 220 volts which would be provided through a tandem breaker, When one flips off, the other must flip off, they are fastened to gether.

I would expect a gas dryer to operate on 110 volts and the poser to come throlugh one breaker. The motor would run but that is not to say the gas will burn to make the heat.

I suppose yoj could have a 220 Volt Gas drier, but there would be little benefit based on the added expense of the motor.

If you are certain you have two breakers for your dryer, it might be time to have a electrician take a look-see

Dryer not drying cloths even though it does the full cycle? hotpoint wd63


There are several reasons for this to happen.
  1. Heater element faulty.
  2. Thermostat faulty.
  3. Heater relay faulty.
  4. Blocked condenser.
  5. No cold water going in on drying cycle.
You really need a meter to test the components with, to get the bottom of the problem.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint WD63 dryer not working


Hi Jacky, Please make sure the power is off and unpluged.On the rear of the heater element board you will find a thermal cut out switch (it's about as big as a 5p piece with an oval outer body) what happens is the heaters overload and pops the bimetal switch, on the back of the switch you will see a small hole just big enough to fit a pin in, get a pin and gently push the bimetal disc and it should pop, if it does then you are fixed.

Drier Motor


Disconnect the vent at the back of the dryer and dry a load unvented to make sure you don't have a clog in the vent line too the outside causing an air flow restriction, if still not drying check and make sure the blower wheel that circulates the heat inside the dryer isn't broken.

Dryer keeps cutting out


Dryer outlet hose could be plugged or restricted not letting adequate air cirulate. Check this and the filter to be sure both are clear of obstructions. Make sure the flapper at the end of the dryer vent is working correctly.... A blocked vent will cause the temp to get too high and the unit shuts down rather than burn down the house.

Dryer keeps stopping


Plugged filter or exhaust hose to outside could be clogged...Have someone turn the unit on and go out to see how much air is coming out of the vent. Should be a bunch. I'm guessing you have a blockage somewhere causing the unit to shut down and not catch on fire.

Machine fuses house RCD if a drying cycle is selected


Suggest you turn the power off, remove the top cover, diconnect the live and neutral connections to the dryer element (likely to be two of each flavour of connection if the machine has high and low dry settings). Pop a bit of insulating tape around the wire ends so you don't short anything out. Now try to put the machine through a drying cycle. If it works (albeit cold) without tripping the house power, you need a new dryer element. If the house power still trips, turn the power off again and without reconnecting the element wires, disconnect and tape the live and neutral wires from the blower motor. Again, try to run a drying cycle. If this stops the house power tripping, then it looks like a motor problem (though this would be quite unusual). If the house power still trips, you need to have a careful look at all the wiring between the main timer, the dryer timer, any hi/lo heat switch, the blower motor and the element with its associated thermostats and thermal cutouts (all located near the element on the air duct). Look in particular for chafes where wires go round corners, and where wiring crosses from the case to the suspended machinery in the middle of the machine. Pop any follow-on queries in the comments section of this question - I'll keep half an eye on it. A.
