My condo has a Hotpoint dryer. It is about 3 years old and last fall it no longer dried. I took the dryer hose off from the wall and the dryer works fine, heats the condo. The dryer vent goes into the...


Hi.

With most Hotpoint/GE dryers the blower motor is not spin by a belt. The problem is unlikely the blower motor. The problem is lint in the air ducts and in the blower housing. The lint results in overheating and the high limit switch cuts off the power to the heater (burner or element depending on the model).
As a result the dryer does not heat up.

Access the heating group and remove lint from the air ducts. Also clean the lint filter.

Hotpoint appliances are built by GE. Below service manuals for different GE-manufactured dryers:

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

Older Ge Hotpoint Dryer will tumble but not light the gas to heat


You state it is an older dryer, so I'd suggest replacement. The water may have damaged numerous components, including the motor, which would be costly to replace.

HOTPOINT DRYER VTD00G REPLACED BELT BUT WONT SPIN


Most likely to be a faulty start capacitor.
This a round plastic cylinder adjacent to the motor.
This gives the motor a kick start.

Hotpoint dryer


Completely disassemble your vent from the dryer to where it exits the building. Clean out all lint. Disconnect the dryer from the electrical service and check for lint build up inside the machine. This lint build up usually makes the motor shut down on it thermal overload. Check the motor also to see if the air vents on it are blocked with lint. If no lint is present, the motor or the start relay need to be replaced.

Wiring diagrame for hotpoint gas dryer


E-Mail me and I will send you a copy of my Schematic. It's 2 pics, but they are pretty clear and should help you. I came to the site wher I saw your post looking for a pic of an exploded view of our dryer. Trying to open it to fix the glide bushing. Started makin metal to metal noises lately, so I am assuming it's like a nylon glider for the drum?

Dryer not working


there are some switches that have to be closed before the hit start WILL FUNCTION. Most obvious is the door switch. a thermal overload in the motor circuit may have opened preventing power getting to the motor. check the overload in the blower housing. just jump it out with a piece of wire [temporarily] if it starts, replace the overload.
