Hotpoint condenser tumble drier not condensing

Postby Andy_S » Sun Aug 31, 2008 6:26 pm

Hi – I’ve had great help from these forums before, so hope that someone might be able to help with this too…

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius (TDC32) condenser tumble drier that has recently stopped collecting water in the water container (the clothes still dry eventually). I’ve tried cleaning (and vacuuming) all parts of the machine I can and there seems to be no fluff anywhere crucial. The manual doesn’t offer any help at all, so can anyone suggest what may be wrong?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated! Thanks…
