SOURCE: indesit IS70C tumble dryer not heating

This caused by one of two possible things. Either you have poor air flow, or a clogged vent preventing air from flowing freely and therefor making the dryer short cycle, which in turn will take you two or three times to dry yor clothes, or the heating element has gone bad, burnt in half and is making contact with the case to provide it just enough power to barely heat. The second thing is a very rare occurance. I would turn the dryer on, find out where the air vents out to, and with the dryer running, go to where it vents and check to see if there is a strong flow of air. 9 times out of 10 that is going to be your problem. Another way to check air flow is to just pull the vent off the back and let the dryer run and see if your clothes dry faster. If you do it that way and they still take a long time to dry, then you'll probably need to replace the heating element

Tumble dryer eeps tripping electric


Had same problem found a lot or water at the rear of the condensing element at bottom front of dryer because the float at the rear was blocked with fluff resulting in water being flicked up by the fan onto the heating element and tripping the electric. Cleaned out float compartment and been fine up til now. For a quick fix (UNPLUG FIRST) remove the condensing element at the bottom front of tumble dryer(behind the drop down cover) then carefully tip the dryer forward and to the left so that it practically balancing on the front left corner, you will probably get a fair bit of water come out so have some towels ready, then dry as much as you can see inside the compartment then replace element and should be good for quite a while until you have more time to clean out the rear compartment. Hope this helps, let me know.

I've changed the belt on my indesit is60v but now it will not start could it be a loose wire? my test pen says power is going from the start button to the timer


Just because power is getting to the switch doesn't necessarily mean the switch isn't bad. It is also possible that the motor or timer is defective.

How can i fix my indesit is70c tumble dryer? my indesit is70c tumble dryer wont heat up during performance


open the back panel , not the the full back just the smaller panel located near the bottom half.
the termo will be screwed onto this panel . unscrew and you will see two circles near the top one will have a small pin hole in it . stick a pin in till you hear a click replace and should work fine

Condensing tumble dryer tripping main power switch , power getting to power switch on the machine and buzzing when pushed then tripping at mains. any ideas?


found that moisture is getting to the timer control and causing mains trip!!!!!! need to dry out timer control then all should be well , aided drying with hairdryer, design flaw will cause this on most is70c i think.

I have in indesit tumble dryer model no;-IS70C.When i hit the start button the machine cuts out right away and trips the main socket RCD in my fuse box.Sometimes the machine starts and then cuts out again...


Hiya drodger, i had the same problem with my hotpoint dryer, (same company) if this is a condenser dryer make sure the drawer is collecting the water there is a small hole at the bottom of the drawer if you have a straw poke it in and clean it out, also at the back of the dryer there is a clear plastic pipe and a black one take them both off and clean them, your problem is exactly the same as mine so you will probably have to buy a new heating element (they are a lot cheaper from ebay) they are so easy to fit just 2 clips (i did it and im not dead yet!) hopefully you will then find the dryer will work perfectly, word of advice though clean the collecting drawer out at least once a month.
Hope this helps
