    Hi all,

    Having trouble with my hotpoint washer dryer. When using the drying phase, the drum fills with water and blows the fuse in the plug.

    The machine works fine on washing cycles.

    My initial thought is that it is a faulty inlet valve allowing water into the drum?

    Thought I would ask on here before opening it up to have a look, as someone may have more knowledge/experience, and be able to help.

    Thanks in advance...

    Cheers,

    Just tried it again to be sure, and this time it tripped without any water entering the drum.

    How difficult/costly is it to replace the dry element?

    Check its resistance with a multimeter. This meter will pay for itself almost immediately. Many members here will help you pick one.
