    I've got a Hotpoint Aquarius WDL520 and instead of drying, all the light on the front panel start flashing. This happens when going into drying on a set cycle or with a standalone dry.

    I was looking for a filter thingy at the front to empty (as per previous machines I've had) and there isn't one. The manual says it's a self-cleaning filter :-s

    Anyone got any advice, please?

    Same thing here - how do I unblock the condenser? Is this a job for the engineer or can I do it myself? (novice DIYer but pretty competent mountain bike mechanic!)

    Well I finally got round to looking into this problem and I couldn't see anything obviously bottle-like on the back of the drum.

    I don't suppose anyone has anything helpful like a photo or an exploded diagram?

    I've got the same issue.

    The dryer has stopped working. All the lights on the machine flash in unison. The rest of the functions seem to work fine. If somebody can tell me what the issue is I'll tackle it.

    As I'm not sure what the condenser is, an exploded diagram would be very helpful too. Thanks for reading, hope somebody can help. A

    Have you checked the fan and heater first. The condenser is under the heater box.
