    This part is well worth investing, even if you have no trouble heating you unit. I replaced mine withing 20 minutes and have now prolonged the life of my drier. After taking off the old element, I had found that the heat proof material on it had all but gone. It heated up fine, but given how the heat is transfered through the drier, it doesn't take a Sherlock to figure out that the element was just about had is. Brittle and fell apart once it was removed from the back. Even a novice at repairs will be able to fit this part. Anyone wanting to prolong the life of your unit, I'd advise to buy this and fit it. It take about 10 to 20 minutes to replace, but can add years to your unit.

    Hotpoint 580P Condenser Dryer - unusual symptoms of heater element. the heater and thermostats worked fine, but when moving into the cooling part of the cycle (last 10 mins) the house RCD would trip out - clearly a current spike when switching off the heater element. as it's a resistive load, I wasn't sure that was the fault, but buying a new element/thermo kit on the off chance was a lot cheaper than calling out an engineer to check. watched the excellent eSpares video first to get an idea. Top off - side off - rear heater cover off - 10 minutes to swap and refit parts in reverse order. took longer to vacuum out the fluff from inside! only downside was that the replacement power connector didn't have a safety latch, so after replacing, I put a tie-wrap across both halves of connector to prevent it vibrating loose. it all seems to be fine now and hasn't tripped out again (so far :^)

    Did the job it needed to.. There may be cheaper non OEM parts available elsewhere, however, they do not come with the thermostats already fitted and the reassurance of an original equipment manufacturer.

  • Q my dryer is getting hot all over when in use, not just warm but hot, what could this be? 2 Answers

    ive got a hotpoint tvm570, ive recently replaced the drum bearing due to the noise it was making, that all went well and now theres no noise, the dryer is still drying clothes, and I hovered it all out when I replaced the other part but not the whole dryer seems to be getting really hot when in use?? I have no idea why, so was wondering if anyone had any ideas what this could be thanks.

      Remove the bottom filter (the one you can wash out) and then shine a torch at the back of the housing. There might be a build up of damp fluff that you will have to remove by hand - there should not be any sharp edges but wear a pair of rubber gloves to make sure you do not get cuts or nicks. I removed the LH side of my CTD00P dryer and was able to get my hand in to remove the fluff.

      There is no insulation for the drum and heat will build inside the dryer. However if the air flow is restricted by fluff in the filter or condenser or a blocked vent pipe all the heat and air will be forced into the case from around the drum seal. Check the air ways and pipes are clear and the seals to the drum at the back and front are both in good order. if they are the heat may just be normal.

      Before buying a new tumble dryer element, try resetting the thermostat on the one you have. To do this, unscrew the cover on the back of the tumble dryer, then remove the two screws holding the element to the cover. Look at the "black" (rather than the silver) side of the thermostat. One of the two "buttons" has a small hole in it. Insert a pin in the hole and push down. If you hear a "click", then the thermostat has been reset. Re-attach the element to the cover and the cover to the dryer. The dryer should now blow hot air when operating.

  • Q I have a hotpoint aquarius drier that won't heat up 1 Answer

    I know what caused the problem, it was a bra bone that got caught in the drum, the drum goes round smoothly but the air is very cold. Hubby took the back off and had a look but all he said was that the elements had an awful lot of fluff on them and he says we need new elements, Do we??? would appreciate any advice thank you

      Water is not being removed from the reservoir at the back and the float switch has turned the heater off to prevent flooding. Check the pump (Stock Number: ES1024993) and for blockages to the container.
