    When turning on the dryer (CTD00) the empty water light comes on and no heat is produced. The water has been emptied and filter cleaned.

I have just had a similar problem and fixed it today.
The "Empty Water" light was staying on and no heat was given out to dry the load.
I found it to be the float switch in the condenser unit at the back left. It had stuck with fluff and debris. I cleaned out the condenser reservoir and the polystrene float and now all is well.
To get to this unit you must first,
Take of the top and the left hand side panel.
Locate the 2 locking tabs that hold the top half of the condenser onto the back panel and release this part.
Remove this by releasing 2 further tabs that hold it to it's bottom half,
and you will see the float switch assembly on the left hand side.
Clean out the condenser reservoir of any water and aslo clean the polystyrene float, it needs to be free to slide up and down between the plastic guides.
Hope this helps.

John2201's solution was very helpful. In addition, to his instructions would suggest to check that the water line leading from the pump up to the tray is unblocked and there is nothing in the pump. My problem was a blocked water line. Then of course clean all the crud out in the reservoir and in the condenser cavity as well.

The door on my Hotpoint Aquarius Dryer CTD00 pops open during cycle is it the door catch that's worn?


If the door latches correctly at the time of wash then it is possible that there is a false trigger to release the door, if so you need to check on the lock.

Dryer not heating up


To be certain whether it is the element or thermostats that are faulty,you really need a test meter to check them with, as it is not obvious if they are faulty or not, simply by looking at them

Empty water light stays on and doesnt get hot


allways with this type of unit it is best to always empty the container after every dry,this is because when the water rises in the pump chamber it operates a switch which shuts of the heater and puts on the light. and they stick quite a lot,disconnect from power and rock the appliance from front to back quite hard and this should rectify the problem

Hotpoint dryer CTD00


Remove the lint filter at the front bottom left of dryer, and run water through it to clean all the fluff out. Clean the other filter, and make sure the air vents air clear.
Before you replace the bottom filter reach inside the opening and remove any build up of fluff and gunge that you can ,get a plastic bag tie or similar and feel for and poke clear a small hole that is located there.
I f it still does not work, then the element and or stats are probably faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Tumble dryer not heating/drying


To check the element and stats, you need to remove the rear panel of the dryer, there you will see the stats and the element, you need to check for contin uity with a meter set on the ohms range, do it with the stats disconnected, or you will get a false reading.. if one of the stats has gone, then you must replace both of them.
Check thst all filters are clean ,air intake and outlet clear, and wash the lower fluff filter out under a running water supply.
If still no joy ,then could be a control unit prob..
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.

Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry


I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.
