SOURCE: Hotpoint CTD00 trips the power

This happened to me.

Your condenser unit on the front bottom left corner may be clogged up and causing water to back up around the fan and heating element behind the rear panel.
Take condenser unit out and give it a good clean removing as much fluff as possible.

If the heating element senses damp on it, then it will trip the electric.
The back panel which is at 45 degree angle on back. I took this off and sure enough there was water in there.
Wipe away all water and use an ever so slightly damp cloth to remove as much dust stuck to the metal as possible.
I used a hair dryer for about ten minutes fanning over the heating element and circular fan. Don't rush this. Take your time to make sure all signs of damp have been removed from heating element before putting the back panel back on.
After carrying out the above my machine worked fine and no longered trip electric.
It is a pain, but to prevent this problem happening I suggest cleaning condenser unit about once a week if you have alot of washing. Empty water panel after every two loads, maximum.

Good luck
Jon

SOURCE: my hotpoint condenser dryer keeps

HI The dryer timer, located in back of the control panel, controls several things: the drying time of the clothes in the drum, the flow of electricity to the heating element, and the flow of power to the timer motor and the drum motor in the dryer cabinet. 
Timers are driven by synchronous motors. Although the contact part of the timer can be cleaned and adjusted on some dryers, this is a job for a professional repair person. Timer motor repairs should also be handled by a professional, but you can replace a faulty timer yourself. Here's how to test and replace a dryer timer:

Step 1: To access the timer, remove the front of the control panel. On some dryers, the timer can be removed without removing the panel. In either case, pull the timer knob off the shaft and slip off the pointer. The pointer is usually keyed to the shaft by two flat surfaces to keep the pointer from slipping when it's turned.

Step 2: Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Turn the timer to the NORMAL DRY setting and disconnect one of the timer power leads. Some timers may have several wires connected to them: The power leads are usually larger than the other wires, and this size difference can be spotted under close examination. Clip one probe of the meter to each timer terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the timer is faulty and should be replaced. Replace the timer with a new one of the same size and type.

Step 3: To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer close to the old one, especially if there are several wires to be changed. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram detailing the proper connections. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for accuracy.

SOURCE: 8kg Candy Condenser dryer keeps stopping and

Hi Andrew, Nothing I found on-line worked. So tonight I had a good look. Inside the machine at the back of where the water caddy fits there's a reservoir. This was full but oddly the water caddy was empty. On the caddy there's a spout with a valve, inside it was fine dark fluff which was being compressed every time the caddy was reinserted. I picked this out with a little stick. I also, and this may not be necessary, removed the valve socket that the caddy valve goes into. It's attached by three screws to the bottom of the machine. This was also clogged with the same sort of fluff. Both blockages were stopping water passing freely into the caddy and so water built up in the reservoir tripping the empty light. Something to check for. Anyway mine works fine now and thought I'd share. Best regards, Ed

have you cleaned the condenser down at the bottom of the dryer and pull it out and put hose through it and look in where you have taking it out and make sure its clean and take off back off the machine and see if the element is wet leave it to dry out and if that doesnt help check if the water is going in the tank or your pump could be faulty

Hoover Tumble Dryer trips out


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Whenever this fuse goes bad it'll either trip the circuit breaker or the dryer wont heat. You can also check it for continuity with an ohm meter, no continuity means the fuse is bad and you need to replace it. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Our Hoover 8kg tumble dryer is not working - lights on but not moving around. Any ideas?


if you are adventurous take the plug out of the wall to remove power for safety . there is an access panel at the bottom of the dryer take off the cover and with a flash light look at the motor and pulley assembly to see if the belt broke it might be laying in the bottom of the dryer if not might might be the timer assembly . their is also a switch on the door it can go bad you can check it by taking a pencil or some other small round object and pres the switch in and try to turn on the unit that will check two things without replacing needless parts.

Hoover HDV6UK keeps tripping circuit breaker


There are only 2 things that it could be both are heat related:
THe thermostat and thermal limiter OR the heating element. We can not rule out the motor though. Then you can get into the control boards. Maybe it is time.
