Please first check if both fuses or the circuit breaker has not tripped.
If you are getting only 120v on one leg of the 140v power, you may get lights and no heat, otherwise please give the make and model.

SOURCE: Hoover Condenser Tumble dryer HSC 170 not heating up

The heating element have got old and brittle over time and finally gave up the ghost. But it is not always the element. It could be one of the safety Hi-limits have blown. All parts of the dryer will have continuity if its working properly. Test for continuity by using a meter set on Ohms,or use a poor man's meter. You can make your own poor man's meter by using an ordinary flashlight . Break the circuit in the flashlight and add a couple of wires to it so that you can make the light come on in the flashlight, that's right hot wire that flashlight. When the bulb lights up you have a circuit! You now have a poor man's meter. The next step is to check each little gizmo on the dryer that the wires attach to. All the limits attached to the side of the heat element, the door switch (when door is closed) etc.should have continuity (closed circuit)(the light should come on in the poor man's meter) If you come across an thing near the blower housing with 2 wires attached to it, that is a thermal limit, a safety or a control thermostat (So as not to get a false circuit you need to remove one of the wires to each thing you check) Look for lint buildup or blocked vent going out the house. If everything is good and you have paid the electric bill, then the timer could be bad.

My Hoover tumble dryer is not heating up - is there a cut out switch that needs to be re-set? - filter and hoses are clear


Typically there is a sensor that keeps the temp of the drying clothes at the proper range.
This sensor may be faulty.

My hoover tumble dryer Hnc175 wont heat up,is still working as normal, just no heat, i have cleaned out the filters and still not working


Heating elements can fail. These are relatively easy and economical to replace. The heating element is not necessarily the culprit if your tumble dryer does not get hot, however. There are thermal overload cutouts fitted to many machines. If they fail, the current will not be passed to the heating element. Replacement is again, fairly straightforward.
Tumble dryers will often have thermostats fitted. A heater control one, and an exhaust thermostat. The first keeps the temperature correct. The second, as its name suggests, monitors the temperature of the exhaust (in case the airflow in the machine is impeded) Once again, replacement is not too much of a problem.

If you feel you don't want to do it yourself, please call a Hoover Tech, and get it looked at. Ask for a "Quote" for the repair, so you get an idea of whats what.

My hoover maxi 6 reverse air tumble drier has no hot air when drying. the filter care light is on. what does this mean?


The thermal overload has failed. Replace the heater assembly on the rear of the drier, under the metal cover.

Hi the my filter light keeps flashing and iv got no heat!


My guess is that the heater element has gone out. There could also be a lint clog in the exhaust vent...it takes air out through the filter...across the heater element....and back through the tumbler to heat the clothes. This is usually what causes heat elements to go out is the excess lint that gets on them and causes them to overheat and burn out!
