Question about Hotpoint Dryers
Lint is getting trapped in the plastic pipe behind the drum. Three enigneer visits during the warranty period, thought the problem was solved. Took the lid off the machine today and the plastic tube visibly has lots of lint inside. How can I open or remove it to clean it out? Engineer took under 20 minutes so I assume this isn't difficult. UPDATE I cleared this by unscrewing and removing the heater apparatus and found that while the engineer had cleared out most of the lint from the plastic vent tube he had left the heater fan full of the stuff. Five minutes with a hoover sorted it. Heater gubbins re-attached and all has been good for two weeks.

If you are certain that the filter is not compromised or damaged and is properly seated into the housing , you may have a problem with the housing itself whereby lint is getting into the blower thru a break in that housing.. I would examine that area for damage.. and make sure when you reinsert the filter, it is seated all the way down.. Hope this helps you... BTW: over time, it is not unusual for lint to build up in the duct since some of that lint is smaller than the filter media and will work its way thru.. If you are getting that degree of lint build up very quickly then you may have a problem as mentioned above..

Well your high limit is blown. It mounts up top of the heat element chamber.

The font panel must be removed. This may be done by removing the control console (open upper cabinet doors to find screws behind the console). The screws along the top of the lower front panel are easily accessible. Disconnect the two interlock switches, remove the grounding clip attached to the bulkhead & lift the panel off the two lower clips. Inside the panel is a housing that leads to the exhaust blower. It will be packed with lint that may be hardened like papier mache. Just clean out the mess & reverse the process to replace the parts.
