Logik 8kg heat pump tumble dryer error message unknown

HI sorry to have to ask again but the previous post seams locked to me. I have a dryer as stated above with an error that is not listed in the manual. When you turn the dial to select a programme the start led begins flashing and will let you start but regardless of starting a programme or not the machine appears to go through a self-check procedure. Shortly after you turn the dial to select a programme an error of 3 beeps and the level 1 and 3 elements Leds of dryer level begin flashing. Could someone confirm what the error is? thank you. Having been an electrical engineer in manufacturing for a long time my guess would indicate a heater element fault but would a heat pump version even have a heating element.

I think it is a play on words and heat pump means it pumps heat. A heat pump in normal parlance is taking heat from a source that would be wasted, like turning a refrigeration system around and using the heat supplied from cooling, to heat an area.


I would guess it has an element, and when you look at the wider view, it is a condensing dryer so the heat from the element makes steam from the clothes which is condensed by the incoming cold air, ergo, it is a heat pump.


Get your old multimeter and screwdriver out and start testing.

Testimonial: "Hi Thanks for the reply, in the mean time I had being just that, wasn't able to fault any of the components but in the mean time Ive managed to clear the fault and its working okay now (maybe I disturbed a loose or poor connection along the way. From the internet - What is a heat pump tumble dryer? A heat pump tumble dryer absorbs the water from your laundry by passing hot air through the drum. This air then goes through an evaporator which removes the water and stores it in the tumble dryers’ reservoir. This air is then reheated and sent back through the drum multiple times until your laundry is dry. Also for those who want a video description of how these dryers work without a heat element (uses a condenser). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWqNmOLHwt0 This works considerably different to vented and condenser tumble dryers, as in both instances they do not take advantage of the air they have already warmed. Heat pump tumble dryers will use considerably less energy, as they are reheating the same air, which is already warm from the previous cycle."

    Thanks for that Neil. The video is great and I never realised that they actually had a true refrigeration system at the heart of them. I am pleased to hear that your issue is fixed.

My tumble dryer keeps stopping and showing E15 in the middle of a cycle I've cleaned the air filter it's hoover 8kg

E 15 is an error message. Turn the machine off from the socket. Unplug it. Change the cycle to a different start point. It may have a worn bearing because of overweight and resists the weighthe bearing because of damage. The weight is important to regular functions.

Hi. DLEX8377WM - no heat...dryer tumbles and there are no errors, but no heat. Happened a few months ago, but started working again.

sounds like the heating element is out, you can disconnect the vent hose turn on dryer and see if heat comes out.

How to fix Hotpoint CTD00 Tumble Dryer?


The link above should solve your problem. I have the same problem and my parents who bought the same tumble dryer also had the same problem. Its water backing up to the fan then its hitting the heating element which is tripping the electric off.

At the back of the Tumble dryer near the bottom you'll see a panel that has about 8 screws that you can taqke off as well as a small panel that cover the pivet for the drum. If you unscrew this you will see the fan and heating element and no doubt a small puddle of water and damp dust that has clung onto the panel. You should dry this with kitchen roll and clean the old dust off then carefully turn the tumble dryer on (at your own risk lol) or you can take the advice of the person who posted the link above and use a hair dryer. This will stop the element getting wet and tripping off.

Also there is a water reservoir to the right of the panel i mentioned. If you prise the clips open and remove the top section you will see the water in the reservoir. If you look inside it on the bottom left hand side there is a little **** that the water drains in from. If you use something like pipe cleaners or a knife and wiggle it about you may have some fluff or hair trapped there that is making the water back up to the fan and causing the tumble dryer to trip off.

Hopefully this willsolve your problem for the time being but the filter in the bottom of the dryer needs to be cleaned thoroughly every week or so to stop this happening again.

Personally i think this is a major design flaw and the tumble dryer should be recalled but Hotpoints aftercare service is awful to say the least so lesson learnt, don't buy a hotpoint tumble dryer!
