I had this problem. If you look at the valve on the plastic water tank, you will see that those parts are the same. They fit inside the tumble dryer to shut off the water from flowing onto the floor when the water tank is removed. The white hollow cylinders in the tumble dryer and the water tank push each other open. If you study the water valve on the tank you will see how it is put together. It is all held in place by a little 9mm O ring at the back of the valve. The ring gets tired after a while and pops off. The valve then falls apart and you find the cylinder and spring on the floor and the O ring still inside the dryer. I bought an O ring kit and reassembled the valve inside the dryer using a new ring. You will have to pull the dryer out, turn it upside down and remove the floor to do this

Either your heater is blow or your thermal cut outs are blown easy to check and replace ...
The are located at the back of the dryer behind the protuding funny shaped panel...
Check the continuity on the t-stats if no present then replace both of them small round things
then its the heater....

Got a similar problem with an HNC172. The supplier said it is the water indicator sensor that is not working. He fixed it! It still stops!!! Clear lint from the trap in the door. Empty what little water there is in the tank, then make sure it has a good shove to get it back into place and the tube/catch is well joined back. Also take out the condenser unit above water tank, stick in the bath and put the shower hose through it to clear lint. Recommend getting a tea strainer over the plug hole or you block your drain as quite a bit comes out. It helped for a while, but it still has problems. Might be the thermostat for the heater? check the error codes. They flash a different number of times within 15 seconds to indicate which problem is happening.

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
