Indesit widl126 does not dry

Had the same problem, very hot but wet clothes. This is a condensor drier. The fack that the clothes are hot rules out the heater or its control. If yoy hear the fan running and there is no blockage the fault is caused by the 3 stage water valve. During drying a small amount of water is passed through a condensor chamber, the cold water causes steam the condense backi into water then is pumped out through the drain. If the water valve fails no condensing takes place and the clothes remain wet. The valve is easy to change and costs about 15 pounds.

My hotpoint tumble dryer plug is very hot and making my socket hot to is it a fault with my dryer as scared incase it causes a fire .It is 2 years old.

It is normal for a plug to get slightly hot, but it is more likely to be a problem with the plug or the socket if it is getting excessively hot, and less likely to be a problem with the drier.
Firstly inspect the plug pins, are they discoloured? If so have the plug replaced.(You can cut the moulded plug off and fit a quality plug)
Try a different socket if you can.
I assume the drier is working normally, but you should not put excessively wet loads in the drier as it will be on for too long. Make sure the clothes are as dry as possible that will reduce the time the drier is on.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

How do you remove top from a Hotpoint CTD80 tumble drier. 2 Screws holding at back. Does it slide forward or back or lift vertically, or are there other screws to remove?

2 screws at the back and then push the top towards the back of the might need to give it a bit of a wack, if it's too tight just take the 3 screws from the back of the side panels and things will loosen up a little

When you take the large metal plate off the back of the drier you will see the 4 elements (bars/coils with fins!). separate the plate from the element bracket by removing the 2 screws. there are 3 round cylinder type electrical connectors, there will be a black one with a hole (approx 2mm) poke a small pin into it and you will hear a click. This is the Bi-Metallic thermo cut out device. as it has tripped once it will have slightly weakened the "sprung contact", This may cause it to trip again a little while later. A new thermostat will be required if it keeps returning. dont forgot to clean the condensor unit on a monthly basis.

Hotpoint ctd00 tumble dryer does not get hot at all

Most probable cause is open ciorcuit thermostat/s. Replace stats, if still no go, then replace heater element.
Pleas rate my solution.

remove 2nd largest panel on back of dryer then remove the heater unit (two small screws) from inside panel,on the top of this you will see two small units with wires going in and out both sides looking closer one of these units has a small hole using a pin push it down into hole this resets thermal cut out,you should hear a small click.
