This model is a condenser dryer, at the bottom of the machine if you open up the flap you will see the condenser on the left hand side, the manufacturer recommends that you clean this unit once every month and also empty the reservoir and clean the fluff filter after every use. While this may seem like a lot of hard work there is a very good reason for this. I suspect that your problem is due to a build up of fluff and or gunge in the condenser and bottom of the machine. Remove the condenser and give it a good clean of all fluff, you can run water through it either in the sink or bath as the best way to do this it is very fiddley using just your hands. Next check to see if there is a build up of water in the back the machine where the condenser usually sits, you will have to lie on your stomach and reach into the back of the machine (OBVIOUSLY ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS SUPPLY BEFORE YOU DO THIS!) along the floor of the machine you will feel a channel cut into the plastic which runs into the sump at the back of the machine, if you have not cleaned the machine properly this is probably blocked and is the culprit. With this blocked the water is unable to travel to the pump that takes the water from the condenser into the resevoir at the top of the machine, and therefore it stays in the machine and can get thrown about onto the electrics and could cause the machine to cut out and trip your electrics! If this is not blocked check the black rubber pipe leading from the pump to the reservoir is not blocked, failing that perhaps the pump (in the plastic case at the back of the machine) is faulty and will need to be replaced.

Tumble dryer eeps tripping electric


Had same problem found a lot or water at the rear of the condensing element at bottom front of dryer because the float at the rear was blocked with fluff resulting in water being flicked up by the fan onto the heating element and tripping the electric. Cleaned out float compartment and been fine up til now. For a quick fix (UNPLUG FIRST) remove the condensing element at the bottom front of tumble dryer(behind the drop down cover) then carefully tip the dryer forward and to the left so that it practically balancing on the front left corner, you will probably get a fair bit of water come out so have some towels ready, then dry as much as you can see inside the compartment then replace element and should be good for quite a while until you have more time to clean out the rear compartment. Hope this helps, let me know.

I have an indesit IS60V tumble dryer and it's no longer drying my clothes even though the dryer tumbles fine. I have checked the filters to ensure they are clean and the vent hose which all appear ok.


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

found that moisture is getting to the timer control and causing mains trip!!!!!! need to dry out timer control then all should be well , aided drying with hairdryer, design flaw will cause this on most is70c i think.

I have in indesit tumble dryer model no;-IS70C.When i hit the start button the machine cuts out right away and trips the main socket RCD in my fuse box.Sometimes the machine starts and then cuts out again...


Hiya drodger, i had the same problem with my hotpoint dryer, (same company) if this is a condenser dryer make sure the drawer is collecting the water there is a small hole at the bottom of the drawer if you have a straw poke it in and clean it out, also at the back of the dryer there is a clear plastic pipe and a black one take them both off and clean them, your problem is exactly the same as mine so you will probably have to buy a new heating element (they are a lot cheaper from ebay) they are so easy to fit just 2 clips (i did it and im not dead yet!) hopefully you will then find the dryer will work perfectly, word of advice though clean the collecting drawer out at least once a month.
Hope this helps

My indesit is70c tumble dryer isnt working correctly. The light which tells you to empty the water is staying on the water draw isn't filling up with water and it does not get any heat. ( I Know I Am Blond...


problem is probably the pump that sends water up to the container. take small panel off back and pump and water container is exposed. power the pump independently and see if it works
