    Hello - What is the model number of your Hotpoint dryer? I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Please add details in the comment box.

    Note: One thing which may have caused your dryer to stop is that it is clogged with lint. Check the lint filter for your dryer and remove all the lint there. Plus, check the dryer vent (at the back and possibly the bottom) of the dryer.) This YouTube video may prove instructive:

Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws

Where will I find the heat reset button on my tcm580 condenser dryer


Hello Mandy, I am not sure what you mean by a heat reset button; perhaps explaining what the problem is, I may be able to assist you. Are you referring to the dryer motor's overload reset button? As a safety feature, a dryer has a high-limit thermostat and either a thermal fuse or thermal cut-off fuse.

In the event of poor air flow where there is no proper ventilation to the heating element- the internal temperature of the dryer exceeds its high-limit, the dryer will shut-down; once it cools off, you should be able to run it again.

However, if the thermal fuse (located on the blower housing) or the thermal cut-off fuse (located on the heater housing) goes, the dryer heating element will will not heat up or the dryer will stop running altogether.

Please note, a dryer will have either a thermal fuse OR a thermal cut-off fuse, but not both.

By-the-way, there has been a recall on certain models of HotPoint Creda, and Indesit tumble dryers due to a fire hazard risk; I am sending you the link...If your dryer is manufactured by HotPoint model TCM580, then your dryer maybe affected. Read the info in the link- it'll give you instructions on how to determine if your specific dryer is affected and what to do.

WERE IS THE RESET BUTTON ON HOTPOINT DRYER CDT 80


Not sure if all dryers have a thermostat reset. You can check your model (which might be CTD80 and not CDT80). Usually it can be reset if there is a small hole in the middle of the device where you can insert a tooth pick and press it.

Location of thermostats is at the back. Make sure the power chord is unplugged from the wall.

See this youtube video.

Hotpoint BWD129 1200 spin - unwanted drying cycles


This is more a workaround than a solution. When you choose the washing programme (say "D") and push the on/off button, two lights will flash, the "door locked" and the "drying" one. Now turn the "drying programme" button until the "drying" light stops flashing (in my case, this is true when I set the drying programme to 40°C). Then start the washing mashine.

Seems like the function of the drying programme button has shifted against the settings written on the button...don't ask me why! Of course, no guarantee but works for me. Please let me know if it does for you.
