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

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 on a hotpoint tdc32


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)

Hotpoint ultima super silent w f 840 shows fault 03


Code f03 means wash thermistor open circuit, this is normally part of the heating circuit, suggest you test heater and thermistos located in the end of the heater, and replace if necesscary. If heater o/k , then could be bad connection to control module, or broken wire, if still no joy, then call Hotpoint.
Please rate my solution.
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.

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.

Wd640 hotpoint washer dryer - error code F03


This indicates that the wash thermistor is "Open Circuit" and I think it is situated on the heater assy at the back of the machine.

Check the wiring and contacts between the thermistor and the PCB. If you still get the fault it could be the Thermistor ( which means replacing the heater ) or a faulty board.
If it is under 5 years old - Call Hotpoint as you have a 5 years Parts Guarantee mind you the call out is £89.98 but thats cheap if it happens to be the board!
