Question about Tricity Bendix TM310W Electric Dryer

4 Answers

Tank full light stays lit.

After emptying the water tank and replacing it into the machine the tank full light still remains lit and the dryer will not run. I have went through all the steps in the trouble shooting guide. Turn the machine off for several hours, clean all the filters, removed and cleaned the condensor unit, and the light still is on. Any suggestions please?

Under the water bottle is a drain hole,when the bottle overflows water runs down this hole through a pipe to a reservoir behind the condensor unit, there is a float in this reservoir that rises and clicks a switch that activates the full tank light and stops the machine working,
removing the stopper at the rear and emptying the reservior should do the trick,If the float does not go back down due to dirt in the machine the left hand side panel can be removed by taking off the top then the retaining screws,one inside at the top the rest in the back panel,remove the one screw holding the float switch unit and clean the black float.(Make sure it's not plugged in)

Just fixed mine. it has a plug at the bottom rear of the machine. you undo the circlip and take off small white rubber stopper, then water comes out and hey presto. Then put it all back as you found it.

Hi I have problems with my mitsubishi dehumidifier Oasis Elite MJ-E-142NX-A1 The water tank full light stays on even though the tank is empty. I have emptied the water and replaced the container care


Sounds like your float is stuck in the full position, or the sensor that shows full is stuck on full.
If tank is empty but shows full, problem lies where full signal is coming from.

!. Check for water drips/leaks onto the wiring after removing the rear&or the side covers.This may sometimes not be visible to the naked eye -- a torch.

2.Check for loose connections to the pump.If all o k then remove the & test by connecting to the Mains.If it runs switch it off -- do not run it dry for more than a few seconds.If o k then it can only be the main board or timer.

I have the same machine. I just went on the coffee geeks website and it is easily solved. Just add a few grains of salt to the reservoir - the sensor cant detect water that is purified - strange but true as four grains and it fired up just like that.

There is a sending unit in the fuel tank that registers how much fuel there is. It is probably broken, giving you a funny reading on your gauge.

The tank may be full. Your dehumidifier has a safety device that turns off the dehumidifier when the water tank is full. Usually the tank itself either presses against a switch or there's a device connected to the tank that triggers a switch when the tank is in place and full.

If you've emptied the tank and the unit doesn't run, inspect the place where the tank rests to see if there's a switch or mechanism that's not being activated. You may be able to turn it on with a simple flick of your finger.

Indesit condensair dryer


Hi,

I have had a similar problem, my wife tried drying clothes that were too wet, causing the machine to flood. Even though she emptied the tank, the empty water light was always on!!

What I did was take the electrical plug out and tip the machine to one side, you probably will find there will be a collection of water in the base, which will leak out. Once you think you emptied it, plug it back it back in and try it.

It worked for me!
