Question about Hotpoint WD62 Front Load Washer / Dryer
I am not very technical but I have taken the top and back off the washing machine to see if it's anything obvious. There are no broken wires and the fan spins when I put the dryer on. The square unit (wraped in foil) on top must be the heater? and the two things on top of that the Thermostats? how do I check if these have gone? a few weeks ago our washing (after using the dryer) smelt has if something electrical had burnt out.
some idiot proof help would be much appreciated.
They are totally separate systems
one of the stats on top of the dryer manifold is usually a resettable type ie has a little button in the middle of the top. press this button and chances are dryer will work. an alternative method of guarding against overheat used by hotpoint, is a thermal fuse located on top of the dryer manifold. this may be open circuit. it is unusual for dryer heaters to go open circuiit but it is possible so that needs checking as well.
if a resettable stat has popped, the cause is often a lint build up in the dryer duct so if you get dry heater working and fault reoccurs, you must check for lint blockage in the dryer duct
take rear bottom panel off and heater is slightly to the rhs. you will need to check for continuity in the heater. if you are unsure if the wash heater is working or not, put machine on the hottest wash and you can check if heating
