Question about Hotpoint WD62 Front Load Washer / Dryer

2 Answers

Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 WD62 (Tumble drying issue).

Our washing is always damp after it's been "Tumble Dried"! I note that some washer dryers have a long tube coming out of back of machine and through he wall of the house. Is our Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 WD62 meant to have one? It hasn't - the person who installed the machine did not fit one nor mention the need for one. I just wondered where all the condensation goes from the drying process. Is this the root of the problem? Please advise.

    Okay, thanks for the assistance which was useful.

    Can you offer any solutions to eradicate the problem?

    We do run the machine for quite a while before removing the clothes, but they remain somewhat damp.

    Is this to be expected, or should they be bone dry?

    I have just taken the back of the unit apart but where do I look to see if there is a blockage?

When you open the door at the end of the dry time, is there lots of steam???

if so it can be one of 2 probs, the 1st is check the condensor unit which is on the back of the drum/tank, its a cream/blue colour and will be full of fluff lint. clean this out and retry. if that does not cure it will prob be the 3 way inlet valve sticking causing the machine not to condence

No the steam from the dryer part comes out of outlet tube the same tube were the water comes out hotpoint washer/dryers use a condensing chamber which allows the steam to cool down a pass through it as water does and through the outlet pipe

    How do you dry clothes in this machine please

    A fairly common problem! The official instructions are

    Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
    remove dust from storing and shipping.
    1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
    pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
    2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
    3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
    4. Push the START button.

    Stopping and Restarting
    You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
    To stop your dryer
    Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
    NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
    the dryer is not in use.
    To restart your dryer
    1. Close the door.
    2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
    3. Press START

    Check your dryer vent (probably outside) to be sure something or a kid hasn't flattened it, making it not vent moisture properly. Replace the vent or pull it back out so the damper door will open.

    Dryer not working effectively

    Be sure you know, and anyone else who reads this with the same problem, that a dryer that dries slow may not always be the dryer. Be sure before you call a service man, always try to do a couple of things first. The number one thing that will cause a dryer to heat slow is poor airflow. First, be sure that your lint screen is completely clean. Next, the number one reason we find is a blocked or restricted vent tube. Be sure you check the entire tube, inside and out. Check the outside duct to be sure a bird or rodent hasn't built a nest in there. The easiest way to clear a vent tube, is to remove the tube from the back of the dryer, and place a leaf blower in the tube and blow her out. Also, be sure the tube when you put it back on the dryer is'nt crimped or twisted in a way to stop airflow. Give these tricks a try, if these dont work, you may have a problem in the dryer.

    Tumble dryer getting too hot

    It sounds like your vent tube is blocked or kinked. Look at the back of your dryer and you will see that tube coming out. Make sure that it is not kinked. If it is, make it not so. You may have to pull out the dryer to make room. If that is not the case, check the following:
    1. Follow the tube to where it goes outside and make sure it is not blocked. Sometimes critters will build a home in the nice warm tube.
    2. Make sure your lint collect in the door is cleaned out.
    One of these suggestions should do it.

    Good Luck!

    Tumble dry is heating but takes forever to dry

    check your air exhaust (including the lint filter) from the air duct connector (remove duct if necessary) on back of dryer to the exterior of the building. Somewhere, there must be air blockage.
