My Hotpoint Aquarius TDL30 is working all fine apart from no heat. Is there a quick/simple fix I can do, or is it an engineer job, or a new machine? Thanks Andy


There is a high probability it is a thermistor tripping out. It cuts power to the heater or fan, or both if the tumble dryer overheats.

UNPLUG THE MACHINE FROM THE WALL BEFORE PROCEEDING.

At the back of the machine, you will see a bulge, held in place by half a dozen or so screws, that covers tha fan and heater element. Once removed, you will see the heating element and the thermistors (I think there are 3 on this model). The thermistor is round, about the size of your thumbnail, set into an oval metal casing, usually with 2 holes in it to mount it and a couple of spade connectors coming off it..
(See a picture here: http://www.espares.co.uk/part/tumble-dryers/thermostats/indesit/isl70c/p/1587/805/0/552087/552036/tumble-dryer-thermostat-k.html)
Typically, the back of the centre thermistor will have a small hole in it that you can poke a paperclip end into.
Basically, the thermistor is a convex bi-metal disc that, when it gets too hot, pings and becomes concave, by pushing a paperclip into the hole, you push out the disc and make it concave again (You will hear it click as you push the pin in).

This is usually all that you will need to do to fix the problem. However, if it was an overheat trip out, you need to ask yourself why this happened. There are usually 2 possible causes:
1) The dryer was overloaded
2) The filters were clogged
3) The heating element is faulty and requires replacement.

1) Is very unlikely. 2) is the most common culprit. 3) will show its self if you clean the filters and the problem keeps reoccuring. If you do have to swap out the heating element, you will find they are easily available on Ebay.

Indesit 70c drier is working but the drum is not spinning


Please if the drum is jammed mechanically. if so you will need to reset with a mechanical job , Please check supply to drum, if absent check the controller unit for failure of the driver. If present then the motor is faulty, if capacitor is present for staring check for failure or attach one in parallel to confirm.

Tumble drier tumbles but no heat its an Indesit...is it the thermostat


Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.

Indesit washer dryer will not heat up in dryer mode


this will probably be one of the thermostats on the element, on some models these have a reset button.

Take the lid off the machine and you will see the heating element, the thermostats are sat on top of it with wires going to them, if they have buttons in the middle press them and if one of them clicks your heat should be restored.

Try this and post back your findings for further assistance if required.

Thank you for using Fixya

Indesit is70c dryer is not heating?


Take off the back plate of the drier to expose heating elements. There you will find two thermo switches, one with a hole in the middle of it. Push something like a pin into this hole until you hear a click. Re assemble back plate and it should work now
