    Change heater element on hotpoint TVF770K Aquarius dryer now have F13 fault

    There is a small thermostat button ontop of the Heater mechanism which has tripped . It has either a red dot or blue dot ontop. Use a pin or opened up paper clip and push through the red wax. It will go click and it is reset. .
    It sometimes trips out with a F code which normally trips the machine off because it thinks the Heater unit is on fire.
    There is a small disk which costs about £15 to buy which you can change.
    You will need HEX screwdriver set to change and open up the Heater matrix to clean the fluff off the element.

    My hotpoint waher dryer edd960 keeps flashing f13 on cuts out drying half way through, what is the problem and can i fix it myself? if not how much it cost ish? thanks

    Do u want to resolve the f-13 fault code ON HOTPOINT WD machines
    Fix the fault . It is a tricky job but the heater thermostat switch has tripped as it senses something burning. Probably a little bit of fluff on the heater element inside the heater unit.. There are 2 switches on top of this heater unit. One where the 2 blue wires go on the top left of the 3rd picture and the other which has a tall black wire connector on shown in the middle of the 3rd picture. Remove that connector and undo the holding screw . You can then reset the switch. The switch is a small circular switch hidden beneather the connector on the photos. This thermostat switch has a yellow. red dot ontop of it. If you use a small pin or needle and press into that dot you will hear it tick back into place. you have reset the switch now. You will probably need to clean the inside of the heater element unit to get rid of the fluff particles or it will keep switching off. To take this apart you will need a set of Star screwdrivers. Its a bit tricky but you will be able to undo the star screws and take them all out. I will add some photos to show you the unit apart. You can see the build up of fluff on the photos i have added from my hotpoint WD860 heater unit. This is a tricky job and takes about an hour due to the screw being awkward to take off and put on again but mine hasnt faulted for 2 years since sorting it out. You can buy a new Thermostat switch which is about 10 pounds sterling from Hotpoint or other spares stores.

    I have a hotpoint wd 640 on the drying cycle it works fine for about ten minutes then shows error code f13 this does not affect the washing cycle ,, i have read on this site to clean out the heater chamber...

    The heater chamber is probably oocated in the back side of the dryer on this model on the lower side. If not on the lower side, it should be right next to the drum.

    I have a hotpoint ctd80 showing error f13, have cleaned all the filters, and cleared the water and still it doesnt clear error on the low heat setting

    F13 indicates the rear thermistor is open/short circuit, this is part of the heater circuit. it is akin to a thermostat, but there is more than one!!
    Hotoint recommend you call an engineer..
    I am assuming that this is a lcd tumble dryer.
    Plz leave feedback.
