After cca. 5 minutes F13 error code appears, ventilator buzzing

Hi,

I have a Hotpoint Washer/dryer. Washing works well, but drying stops with F13 code after cca. 5 minutes. The ventilator motor makes a buzzing noise. I think it turns slower, then it should, but can’t see any junk, to slow down it, I can rotate the blades easily. The motor of ventilator looks intact. In spite of that it is the reason of overheating?

Can someone help me?

New aspect: I connected the ventilator AC motor to the 230 V power network. The motor sometime spined well, then the rotation got slower and slower, then stopped, and after a bit it started to rotate again faster.

I don't know whether these AC motors are drived by frequency converter, or they get the 230V/50Hz power? In case the second option, I think the AC motor is faulty.

I’ve fixed it! :-)

The AC motor was faulty. In the beginning when I tryed to rotate it with my fingers I thought it rotates easily. But, when I get the new motor the new one was spinning so much easier, than the old one.

Since then the drying function works perfectly, no F13 error!

Thanks for every help!

Csaba Katona  F13 for Hotpoint washer dryers is a Dryer temperature sensing fault. So this could be a bad sensor. For now I suggest you start looking at something like this repair

Type is FDD 10761.. I read the previous answer, and it looks like the last error is the problem (Heather element resistance is 36 Ohms, so I think it is Ok)

Yes that could be a problem. See if you can fix it and let us know. while you fix it maybe you can create a new guide for all of us. That way it will be on iFixit for all to see. https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/new

Sorry for the late answer.

I have been hoping that the friction between the ventilator and heater had led to this failure, but unfortunately not, the heater is fitted strongly. I try to replace the sensor, because the present one is not exactly match to this model. When I'll have the new sensor, I'll write my experiences.

As I think the problem was with the insufficient ventilation caused by the sometimes stalled, sometimes stopped fan. This led to the very high temperature, that is why the display showed F13
