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.

What is the best settings to wash jeans on.


While hand washing and line drying is safest, it's also costly in terms of time and effort. Unless your jeans are particularly dirty, it's best to wash them in cold water, select one of the gentler cycles, and dry them at a low temperature. Special detergents formulated to preserve dark colors really do work.
What temperature do you wash jeans? When to Use Warm Water - For man-made fibers, knits and jeans, use warm water (90°F). Most of your clothes can be washed in warm water. It offers good cleaning without significant fading or shrinking. When to Use Cold Water - For dark, bright colors that bleed or delicate fabrics, use cold water (80°F).
Wash your jeans in the sink or a tub.
  1. Fill a tub with a few inches of cold or lukewarm water. Mix in a gentle, color preserving detergent.
  2. Turn the jeans inside out, then lay flat in the tub. Don't bunch them or wrinkle them. Let them soak for about 45 minutes.
  3. Run them under the water to rinse. Hang up to dry.
  4. Can you put jeans in a tumble dryer?
    According to Good Housekeeping "All fabrics and especially jeans benefit when youtake them out of the dryer slightly damp. ... If, even after tumbling on low heat and a delicate cycle, you see lots of lint on the dryer's filter, you may want to switch to linedrying your jeans to help preserve the fabric.
    hope this helps you out.

Hotpoint WDF740G Dryer not Very Hot


Most likely to be either that the capacitor is defective which starts the motor slowly at first and then picks up speed or the drive belt is worn, usually this happens when the drum has clothes in it otherwise it looks as if it is operating normally

E15 error code on hoover tumble dryer


Controls
  • The control unit on the tumble dryer will vary among different makes and models. The main purpose of the controls is to allow the user to select the drying cycle. You can choose the time and temperature setting on most units, while others allow custom settings such as moisture sensors and end-of-cycle alert signals. The controls may include a dial or a touch panel and LED screen display. Some tumble dryers allow you to independently select the appropriate time for the load you are drying and separate programs for temperature.
Motor
  • The motor inside the tumble dryer spins the basket to allow the clothes to tumble while being dried. The tumbling action allows the air to pass through the clothing to dry them faster. Heating laundry that is stagnant will likely dry the clothing on the outside while leaving damp clothing inside the pile. The constant motion, along with the heat and steam created by heating the clothing, reduces wrinkles. The motor also powers the fan that delivers the heated air to the basket of laundry. The heater can be an electrical element or gas powered.

Dryer will not Dry!


A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.
