This is possibly due to water in the wrong place and being thrown by the fan onto the element.
take the rear cover off, drain the water (won't be much) and dry area with paper towels.
take out the condensor and clean it while you are about it.
feel round at the back and youb will find a small hole for the condensate to flow away and this hole may be blocked. poke something down it to clear

sounds like its blocked with fluff somewhere and your element could be wet take off the back and check your element and if water around it you need to compleatly clean out your filters and down where the condenser is then leave it for a day or two to compleatly dry the element

My machine flicks the mains switch as soon as i turn it on, both washing and drying. it first flicked the safety switch about halfway through a dry load...what could it be?


Hiya,
there is a few things that will do this to your electics 1st & formost if your trip switch is tripping off remember this is a safty device to prevent fire so ignoring the problem & switching the power back on to try again could run the risk of fire!!

This sounds like a heater issue since it's tripping the power on both the wash & dryer, in events of overheating the machine will trip your power for safty & to prevent the risk of fire however since you mention that it trips the power as soon as you switch it on you could have a blocked pump or burnt out motor too if your finding that the machine is tripping the power earlyer & earlyer each time you retry i would focas on the motor or the pump 1st

on rare ocasions you can spring a leak & if water gets on the electrics this will also trip the power but this is 1 of the least likely posabilatys..
remember always get a qualified electrician to work on your electrics to ensure the job is carried out correctly

Hope this helps

Dryer tripping RCD


Try disconnecting the heater and thermostats.
They are located behind a removeable cover at the rear of the dryer.
If it still trips, then the problem is likely to be more serious.
Hope this helps.

Hotpoint WDM 73 keeps tripping ringmain when powered on


I suspect that the problem is probably being caused by a fault on the dryer element or thermostat.
Remove the top cover and disconnect the heater, and see what happens..
If it does not trip, then prob is the dryer element or stat.
Hope this helps.

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.

As soon as you do a spin program at more than 800 it trips the switches in the main fuse box


Sounds like a motor prob to me, unplug motor and try on spin cycle without motor, if it does not trip, then the motor is faulty..
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Keeps going on test cycle


Try the following, may work:
  1. Press the Start/Cancel button together until all the console Led's illuminate
  2. Press both Start/Cancel and On/Off buttons together until 'd off' appears
  3. Default screen should return and you can select a new programme

HOTPOINT WD71 ERROR E 30


Hello john walker24
Welcome

You said, you have a Hotpoint Ultima 1200 Washier dryer model WD71s and keep getting an E30 error code after it fills with water.
Any idea what the problem is?

This is what Hotpoint tells us!
E30 = A motor drive problem has occurred.Try running the programme again.
If the problem persists call for a Service Engineer.

BUT, I will tell you to unplug the appliance for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system and solves the error code.
Sometimes it is only a glitch and you can reboot and be alright if there is really no mechanical failure!!
Let me know how it goes?
Huuum,
Please remember to leave a rating!
Thank You.
Waiting for your response!

No heat on tumble dry programme. Display flashed F 13.


You need to replace the heating element for the dryer which is positioned on top of the outer drum. Remove the top cover of the machine and locate the heater.
