Will it immediately start back? If you have to wait a few minutes for it to start, motor may be bad.

Maybe the things you are trying to dry are really soaking and it overloads the machine; have you tried hanging them up first to drip?

I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.

I think that I have already suggested some possible reasons for the prob you are experiencing with your dryer, but I don't think I have mentioned the fact that the pump could be fauty, you should be able to hear it running, just a thought , you never know.

Thermostats rarely go. You could have a bad heater or even a voltage problem. Even if the dryer runs, the voltage can still be wrong, it only needs 110 volts to start the motor but must have 220 to have heat.

Without actually taking meter readings I would suggest that its probably the thermostats that are fitted to the heater unit on the back of the appliance.

Hotpoint Part Number: 1703607


Hope this helps

No, the float switch activates when the storage tank is full. To confirm this lift the float and you will see the "Empty Water" light come on at the front of the machine.

My hotpoint condenser tumble dryer keeps triping the mains in my house when i try to switch it on


you could have a defective start switch on the dryer motor, bad motor bearing making motor drag and draw excessive current or a heater element shorted to the dryer case

Hotpoint aquarius tumble dryer, drum not going round but still


If you can hear the motor going, then the belt probably needs replacing, if no motor action, then prob is more serious.

Drying Problems with a Hotpoint CTD00


There is a thermal fuse at the back that you must check. The thermal fuse can be tested using a multimeter.
If the fuse is ok, then check the heating element , the temp probe, wiring harness to heating element and temp sensor, and if there is nothing in there , then test control timer board.


Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).
