ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!


For this problem you will need to use factory service!

Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!
A&E Factory Service
A Nation Wide Company. / Available 24 / 7 for arranging appointments! In the USA.
1(800) 905-9505

If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!

Good luck!
You will be fine now!

Thank You
Bless you,ngfam1

Faulty control board hotpoint ctd85

You can remove the panel and check for fault in the connectors and the line to the display, use a hair dryer to warm and dispel any moisture on the board and panel. If there is no result then the panel has to be replaced.
To remove click : control panel

Condenser not drying stuff properly

I am hoping your talking about a clothes dryer here. based on the model number you posted here. Does your dryer even feel warm to the touch as in any signs of internal heating? If not then here are some things to check. 1 the basics: Check the circuit breaker and make sure that both of them are in the on positon. Just trip them off and then back on again to reset them. 2. Check the power cord for any signs of a bad connection. It will show up as a dark discoloration. 3. I know you said you checked the lint filter but have you gone outside and verified that the external outlet vent is free of obstructions? If not please check it and clear any obstructions. 4. The heating element itself may be open. Ovetr time they are like light bulbs and the burn out requiring repl;acement. 5. There can be a thermostat failure causing an open circuit and no power to the heating element. 6. The motor switch also controls the heating element circuit and it is actuated when the motor is running. If the switch has failed it will prevent the heating element from being energized. 7. The least likely suspects are the timer and heat setting controls yet either of them can cause a no heat condition. You did not mention if it was a gas or electric dryer and the comments above are for an electric dryer. If you have a gas dryer then you can have 8. a bad ignitor, 9. a bad gas valve, 10. a failed gas regulator. Based on this model number CTD80 it does not cross to anything that I can find. The bottom line is your unit is probably worth the cost of getting it repaired. You may want to check your model number again please and repost it you need more information. It appears this is a UK model. I hope this was helpful. It certainly was educational here.

My Ultima CTD80 suddenly stop working mid programme, supply is okay and fuses are good any ideas would be a welcome help thank Martin

if you have no display then the overheat cutout on the heater has tripped. can be reset but check air path (door filter and condensor ) as this usually trips for a reason.. safety first.

Hotpoint CTD80 display not working

Sounds to me like you are having a problem with the control board........Bad news is its one of the more expensive parts on units....Good News is its one of the easier parts to replace if you are not an Appliance Service company.......Look into getting the control board in the control panel!

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

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.

Hotpoint Ultima CTD80

i have a hotpoint ultima ctd80 which i have had the last 2 years, it has shown error codes f11, f10 and f15, every time i fix this problem by first switching off and unplugging appliance then removing small cover from back (middle with 2 screws) then larger panel that the smaller panel overlapped. once you remove these you will see the heating elements, remove the 2 screws at the back off this, remove cover carefully then at the top you will see two things (not very technical lol i am a woman), with a pin press the pin in the one with a hole, mine makes a clicking sound when i do it, not sure if it meant to but works for me. put all parts back together and thats the job done. make sure both fillters and water emptied regular, hope this helps and saves you a fortune on call outs
