Hi there: I have a Hoover VHC 68B-80 condenser tumble drier that lights the filter warning light more often than it should. The fluff filter in the door and the condenser are all clear but the light still comes on after a few drying cycles after clearing out the filters. Is there anything in the back of the dryer that could be clogging up to give the indication of filters being blocked. Its not a 5 minute job for me to get the back of it off so I thought I'd ask on here first.

Thanks Ian

You need specialist advice, try the White goods forum

there is no sensor its just a timed light it comes on after x amount of time, clean the condenser out and flush it in all directions under the tap

how often do you empty the water ? as that can affect drying times

Given the recent rise in (apparent) tumble drier fires it wouldn't surprise me at all to find that the manufacturers err on the side of caution when calculating when the filter should be checked. More is good......

I am taking a wild guess. A friend with a miele washer/dryer got similar problems blah blah blah ... unless it was for a different problem the advice from the repair shop was to run every now and then a wash at 90 degrees (even without clothes). It cleaned some of the internals ... sorry I never paid much attention because she would not tell me much (she would hate it if a man found the answer to the problem)

Sorry, but the clue was in the question.
