Question about Dryers
Hi there I have an Ariston A1600WD washer/dryer. And ever since I first got it, it has made a really loud (imbalanced) sound when its on full spin. However now (2 years later) the dryer isnt working. It turns and makes all the right noises, just that there is no heat at all. Do you think the two are related? I'd happily get an engineer out if there is something I cant fix myself, but essentially I'd like to try and sort it of my own accord (with your help and wisdom!) Many thanks and kind regards to you. The dryer has just suddenly stopped giving of heat. It still washes fine and goes through the motions of drying just without the heat.
Assuming everything else is working, it sounds like your heating element is burned out. Two years is a little short for the typical life span but not unthinkable.
Here's a photo of the part for your unit at a site that sells them. If you pull the back panel off and trace the wires, you should be able to find this part easily. It is designed to be replaced.
