Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Can you tell me what fault code E2 on a Hotpoint dryer 9344 means please? It seems as if the heater works for a while but then I think it cuts out and I cannot decide whether to call the repairman or not. It does work a bit but bleeps after about 5 minutes and displays this error code. Thanks Kate

    Thanks, I'll get someone in to look at it then, it doesn't sound too expensive from what you say.

Hi,

To my knowledge, on most brands/models, an E2 error code indicates a a "thermistor failure" This could be indicative that the temperature is too high (which I am assuming is not the case) or the temperature sensor is defective, more specifically shorted (the continuity test reads below 500 ohms).You would need a continuity tester (DVM) to verify this. Should you find it useful, the standard resistance measurements are:

  • 60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms;
  • 70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms;
  • 80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms;
  • a reading greater than 50K would indicate an open thermistor and would display error code E1.
This of course would require opening the unit, replacing the aforementioned part (if tested bad), a fair knowledge of electrical/electronic components and circuitry as said, use of a DVM and safe working practices. If you are uncomfortable with w DIY (do-it-yourself, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning open circuit)
4 Modern tumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuit boards) these have programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an error code showing you were the fault is.
5 Faulty connections and burned wires may also be the fault.

F10 error code on Hotpoint ctd80. How do I fix ? Thanks


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.

Have a hotpoint tdc30p dryer that will not heat


Check to see if the new parts fitted are o/k,
If they are, then your problem is probably a faulty control unit or possibly bad connection in the wiring.
If the new parts are faulty, then something else is causing them to fail.
Make sure all filters are clean and that all air vents are clear

Dont know what the fault codes are for my Hptpoint Dryer CTD80


Hi.
F10 indicates that the heater is open circuit, or the thermostat is faulty, more likely to be open circuit thermostat, you should replace both thermostats.
Also make sure that you clean the filters regularly

This should solve your problem.
