Hotpoint Aquarius tumble dryer problems
Hotpoint Aquarius tumble dryer not heating
A tumble dryer not heating often relates to a tripped heater fuse or a cut out of the thermal overload. Other common problems can be down to the heating element or the thermostats. The majority of dryers have a cycling thermostat controlling the temperature by constantly opening and closing. The other thermostat is a safety feature which opens if the temperature gets too hot but won’t reset when cold.
Another possible cause is a defective heating element. Due to the thermostats and heating element being so closely linked it’s advisable to have an experienced repair technician take a look, and replace both parts if necessary.
Your appliance may have a mechanism to prevent overheating and catching fire and this can be reset if its tripped. You’ll find that your Hotpoint Aquarius tumble dryer reset button will either be red with a reset logo which can simply be pressed to actually reset the appliance, or there will be a small hole on one of the thermostats near the heater. You’ll need a pin to perform the reset if this is the case.
Hotpoint Aquarius tumble dryer won’t turn on
If the tumble dryer won’t start when you push the start button the most likely causes are a problem with the power supply, a defective socket or plug, or a blown thermal fuse. If overheated the fuse won’t have any continuity meaning the electrical path is broken. Any of these electrical issues should be checked out by a qualified engineer.
Other components that can affect the start of your appliance include the door switch – if this is faulty it won’t click when the dryer door is closed. The start switch may be at fault and when pressed won’t get any noise response from the appliance and may need replacing.
Hotpoint Aquarius tumble dryer keeps beeping
When your dryer beeps continuously this indicates an issue with the control panel. Unplugging or resetting the appliance won’t solve the problem, as the board will probably need to be replaced by an appliance repair technician. You shouldn’t confuse this with beeps that indicate that the drying cycle has finished, which is quite normal.
Hotpoint Aquarius all lights flashing
If all lights are flashing on the LED display it suggests that the appliance believes it has overheated and has gone into a protective mode. The main concern here is a fault with the control board which means you won’t be able to select any programme and points to a software issue. You’ll need to contact a qualified service engineer as you won’t be able to fix this yourself.
