Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer
Tumble dryier not heating. Sensors checked at top of m/c.Heating elements checked and work when connected seperately fron m/c.Fan motor turns ok and runs ok when not on m/c.Heater will not heat fan not turn when on m/c.All wires connected all wires checked for continuity.Dial turned to both dryier settings no result.Dryer setting switch checked and switches when turned.Door contacts ok Mains switch ok.No mains at heater element.Main pcb board checked no signs of burnout.Circular (valve?)with pipe by main pcb all conected.Motor works fine replaced year ago.Drum turns okand goes round on dryer cycle.Washer washes fine on all programmes.No burning smells when in use. Water pump ok and filter cleaned.
I am a retired engineer of 20 years, and its about a year since i worked on combination washer/dryers but if the heater elements fine and power comes from timer there must be cut out somewhere around where it should warm up, look all round the machine one may be hidden or hard to spot there maybe about 3 one of them one of them could be a trigger device (you can press a button to reset it) that style is a very small cube about the size of a sugar lump with2 spades on it, others look like a small flat oval or round shape the size of a five pence piece with 2 spade wires on them, remove the plug from wall and remove these spades and check the contacts for continuity, you need not remove from machine to do so, no circuit + no heat, replacement item not expensive, thats where to start based on the information given, check the sensors you mention again, it sounds like your so close, good luck and work safe
