There should be a small door on the top, side , or just inside the door with a removable screen that you clean off. Pull the dryer out and check the vent hose as well making sure that this is not clogged as well.

Ctd80 hotpoint dryer panel flashing dryer not working


Filter at bottom of machine needs pulling out and cleaned on a regular basis. This is a common fault and the lights is telling you to clean the filter. It is a large filter that unclips at the bottom front of machine. Remove two small screws from the front of the filter located left and right and gently remove the front plate. Once removed you will see a metal filter clogged with clothing debris. Clean with cotton buds and a damp cloth till clean. replace all parts and you should have it working once again with a good heat source as well. Every 2-3 months is sufficient to keep it cleaned. Hope this helps.

I have a Miele T9800 dryer and it stopped working and the vent/filter check light came on. I checked the filter and vent and both are clear and removed the rear cover and made sure the heating element...


Hi - it makes me wonder as why we always tend to do things first prior to seeking the right/correct advice.

A T9800 Miele is not your everyday cheap dryer as you will know - the questions is have you still got your user Manual and if you do - have you read it carefully - it will tell where the problem lies and how to clean it.

I cannot grasp the fact that you would remove the rear access panel for a heater bank to check the resetable over temperature unit.

The machine clearly indicated a vent/filter error not a heat error - I know at this moment you have and are swearing & calling me names...

I will let you cool down a little ....................and I will tell you what you should have done instead of removing that panel Ok?

My condo has a Hotpoint dryer. It is about 3 years old and last fall it no longer dried. I took the dryer hose off from the wall and the dryer works fine, heats the condo. The dryer vent goes into the...


Hi.

With most Hotpoint/GE dryers the blower motor is not spin by a belt. The problem is unlikely the blower motor. The problem is lint in the air ducts and in the blower housing. The lint results in overheating and the high limit switch cuts off the power to the heater (burner or element depending on the model).
As a result the dryer does not heat up.

Access the heating group and remove lint from the air ducts. Also clean the lint filter.

Hotpoint appliances are built by GE. Below service manuals for different GE-manufactured dryers:

My hotpoint aquarius dryer is not got any heat


Most likely reason is failure of thermostat/s or heater element.
As you do not specify model, Ir is difficult to tell you exactly where to locate them, but generally speaking they are at the rear of the dryer.
Hope this helps.

Dont know what the fault codes are for my Hptpoint Dryer CTD80


Hi.
F10 indicates that the heater is open circuit, or the thermostat is faulty, more likely to be open circuit thermostat, you should replace both thermostats.
Also make sure that you clean the filters regularly

This should solve your problem.

Not heating up


I would check the thermo fuse in the back of dryer.. its on the burner towards the top.. use omh meter and check if its good. If you dont have a meter, if very careful and just hook wires togeter and tape so nothing touches and will not short out by touching anything, bypass switch JUST to see if switch is bad! Replace it if bad
