Question about Hotpoint WD62 Front Load Washer / Dryer

No Heat during washing or Drying

Hi

I am not very technical but I have taken the top and back off the washing machine to see if it's anything obvious. There are no broken wires and the fan spins when I put the dryer on. The square unit (wraped in foil) on top must be the heater? and the two things on top of that the Thermostats? how do I check if these have gone? a few weeks ago our washing (after using the dryer) smelt has if something electrical had burnt out.

some idiot proof help would be much appreciated.

    Have a very similar problem with the dryer part with no heating but everything else works fine.

    In your response one of the 'stats on top of the dryer manifold is usually a resettable type'. Where can I find this stat and what does it look like? Help appreciated.

    is it no heat on wash or on dry? heaters are separate items for wash and dry

They are totally separate systems

for drying
one of the stats on top of the dryer manifold is usually a resettable type ie has a little button in the middle of the top. press this button and chances are dryer will work. an alternative method of guarding against overheat used by hotpoint, is a thermal fuse located on top of the dryer manifold. this may be open circuit. it is unusual for dryer heaters to go open circuiit but it is possible so that needs checking as well.
if a resettable stat has popped, the cause is often a lint build up in the dryer duct so if you get dry heater working and fault reoccurs, you must check for lint blockage in the dryer duct

for wash.

take rear bottom panel off and heater is slightly to the rhs. you will need to check for continuity in the heater. if you are unsure if the wash heater is working or not, put machine on the hottest wash and you can check if heating

good luck

Malber WD1000 wont condense the water that is fed through during the drying cycle


Since it drains properly during the wash cycle, we know the drain pump and its impeller (propeller) work, and the coin trap (you called it a filter) and hoses are not clogged. By the way, turning the rightmost knob to "4" will start the pump-out cycle, so you don't have to open that trap-door at the bottom. To condense, the machine needs COLD water (spritzing on an internal screen) during drying. Make sure your cold water hose is connected to the outside (outboard) connection on the back of the machine. As a long shot: If the gray drain hose is pushed too far down into your home's drain pipe (more than 8") there could be a "back-siphon" where dirty water siphons back into the washer. It's a long shot, but it does happen.
Lastly, the controller board (mounted at top of right side) could be bad, and not sending on-off commands to the pump during drying. During drying, the drain pump should cycle on and off constantly, every few minutes. Do you hear it running? If you remove back (about 12 Torx screws), at your lower left you will see the pump. There are only 2 wires (120 VAC) and they can be connected either way. Stick a meter on the terminals and see if power is cycling on and off. If not, the controller board is bad.
You can order one from Malber (in NYC) by calling Nancy at 516-323-5299. Tell her Mike, in Wash. D.C., says hi.

How do you turn up the heat on the dish washer drying cycle?


There is no way to turn up the heat of the dishwasher during the drying cycle. As part of the current ecological, energy-saving, environmentalist-wacko movement, dishwasher makers have cut back on the heating used to dry dishes. But you can do these things to help with drying:
1. It is imperative that you use rinse-aid (Jet-Dry). This allows more water to flow off the dishes and what flows off does not need to evaporate.
2. If the dishwasher has the options, turn on high-temperature wash and sani-rinse. This gets the dishes hotter for better evaporation during the dry cycle.
It is possible that the heater may not be working at all, and that will cause poor washing performance and no drying. That problem can be caused by a bad heating element, or by a bad controller.

Those 6 springs are pretty tough to get back on there without the special tool
other than that it all goes back pretty easy.

No heat during drying cycle


your heating element or the thermostats that control the heating element could be bad. research no heat for your make of dryer, it should show how to ohm the thermostats and element for fault. They should all read 000 when ohmed. 000 being a complete circuit. I have been having thermal fuse problems with my whirlpool dryer, so I'm learning as I go.

Hi,

I thought that when you purchase an electrical item you are covered under the 'SALES OF GOODS ACT'., for at least five years.

If an item is continually breaking down, does that mean it has an inherant fault?

Washes clothes fine, drying cycle no heat


Hi, I have a Hotpoint WD640 myself and funnily enough I have the same problem. Knowing a tiny bit about washing machines you will probably find that your heating element from the dryer has stopped working. If you can still wash clothes that means that your other heating element for the washing is fine and that your thermostat for the machine is also working. If you need to buy a dryer component may I suggest 4hotpoint.co.uk, I have just bought an element from them and it cost me £27.99 including tax and P&P. May I also suggest that you get a suitably qualified or competant (not saying that you are not) person to fit the element for you as you do not want anything to go wrong with your washing machine. Hope this helps :o)

Dryer heats but no condensing of steam


The cold water feeds for condenser cooling and for wash cycle drum fill are controlled by separate solenoid valves (manifolded together at the cold water inlet hose union). When the solenoid on my condenser coolant valve failed a couple of years back, I got symptoms like yours. A new pair of valves isn't expensive to buy and is a trivial job to fit. If this is what has been happening, suggest you also inspect the insides of your dryer fan and of the pump - neither of mine took really kindly to having been cooked for hours on end. Alastair.
