Excerpt: I've had this tumble dryer for approximately 12 months now. The hotpoint CTD00P 'Aquarius' is an extremely good and efficient dryer. It is a condenser dryer, that is you no longer require a hose (or elephant's trunk as the kids would say) hanging out of the window to vent the steam. This particular model cost me approximately £240 from Sainburys.
Excerpt: I also have the noisy Hotpoint CTD00 Tumble Dryer. The only solution offered is below: glenn''s review of the August 22, 2009 1:54:46pm. Does anyone know of a fuller description on how to do this. My CTD00 doesn''t correspond to glenn''s description.
Excerpt: I have had this piece of junk for 11 months In that time I have called out an engineer 7 times & STILL the NOISE is terrible The casing on this model is very thin & the heating element has already blown twice and although this has been repaired NOTHING it seems can be done about the TERRIBLE noise it makes. One idiot engineer suggested we place it on a piece of carpet!
Excerpt: Mine is just over a year old and is also blowing the main house fuse when turned on. This is obviously an inherant problem with this model. Hotpoint, i hope you are reading this, but just for good measure you are going to get an agry phone call as well!
Excerpt: I bought this dryer from Ebay, it was sold as faulty as it was claimed that it tripped the main house fuse when it was plugged in, and like a lot of this model, it failed when it was 16 months old. I got it home and plugged it in, and it worked for a few days, then it did what most of this model does, it tripped the main house fuse.
Excerpt: I have owned a CTD00P for just over a year and it has always been very noisy indeed, due to the drum scraping parts of the metal bodywork. It was inspected by a Hotpoint engineer initially who managed to keep it quiet for a short while, but then the noise resumed again. After the 12 month warranty had expired by 9 days, the CTD00 packed up altogether. A telephone call to the Hotpoint Customer Service resulted in a request from them for £89 `callout`. Abysmal.
