Question about Hotpoint Dryers
A beeper keeps sounding and a message telling me to empty the water bottle keeps coming up. The water container is empty, the filter is clean and the condenser has been cleaned. Any ideas please?
Hi ime not sure but some dryers have a small tank inside at bottom with a float maybe float is stuck or if it has a pump maybe not working will have one if water tank is at top of dryer

I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.

Either your heater is blow or your thermal cut outs are blown easy to check and replace ...
The are located at the back of the dryer behind the protuding funny shaped panel...
Check the continuity on the t-stats if no present then replace both of them small round things
then its the heater....

There are three water reservoirs - one at the bottom behind the condenser, a second at the back bottom of the machine and then a third at the top which is the one you would normally pull out to empty.
There is a hole at the bottom of the filter in the first reservoir (at the back of the condenser) which leads to the second reservoir at the back. If the hole gets clogged up with lint/muck then the reservoir at the back does not fill up.
So to solve this, unplug the machine, take out the condenser (front left bottom of the machine) reach through to the back and mop up the spare water with a towel and check that the hole to the back reservoir - you can feel this it is towards the right side at the back of the machine is clear from muck.
Once you have cleared it, water will flow to the second reservoir and then (once you switch on the machine) up to the main removeable reservoir at the top.
Hopefully this helps. GB
