Question about Dryers

Open Question

Creda Simplicity T620CW Tumble dryer. Switches on ok – gets warm (don’t think its getting too hot) and runs for a few minutes then shuts off. Cleaned filter etc. Can someone point me in the right direction? I was thinking thermostat’s (there are 3 – two near the heater and 1 near front door) or relay above door. Any help appreciated and gratefully received. David

Check the thermostats. Could also be a reset-able overheating thermostat that needs to be reset.

SOURCE: TUMBLE DRYER DOES NOT GET HOT

Hi, - The first thing to do is UNPLUG THE DRYER! Then remove the heater cover situated on the back panel. It is the curvey shaped panel.
Remove all the screws and the panel may be slightly stuck - just prise it off.

Next - there are 2 small screws holding the heater and thermostats assy onto the back panel. - Remove these to free the assy from the back panel. Be careful not to touch the elements as they break easily.

The problem is probably the Thermostats.

The one on the left is the Overheat Thermostat - You will notice a small hole in the centre of the thermostat. Take a Pin and push it firmly into the hole and you may hear the Stat "click". That has re-set the stat.
Re-assemble the Dryer being careful with the elements.

Now - Why has it tripped? If it has overheated it is because of one or all of the following.

1. The Condenser unit is getting blocked - Remove and clean under running water like a hosepipe or tap.
2. The door filter is not being cleaned
3. Sometimes opening the door to check if the clothes are dry and then not allowing the dryer to cool down can cause the problem. Always allow it to go through the cool down process.

Hope this helps. The Heater and the Thermostats are available as Spares - Terry

SOURCE: No hot air from my tumble dryer

Hi.
You do not state whether it is a condenser or vented dryer.
the most obvious reasn for no heat is element and/or stats..
The only way to confirm which it is-- is to meter them out with a multi meter..
If you have one then set it on the ohms range and test the components for continuity, you should get full scale deflection if they are o/k.
You must disconnect the wires to the components, or you will get a false reading, and needless to say, have the m/c unplugged.

If all test o/k then the problem could be with the timer and or control unit, or the heater relay if it has one.Unknown to me as I do not know your model number.
If it is a condenser dryer, make sure all filters are clear, air intake and outlet vents clear, water container empty .
Plz rate my solution
Thanks

hello dave to do this you'll have to take the front panel off so you can pull the tumbler out so you can get to your pully and tensioner on the bottom on the dryer,loop the belt on the pully and keep tension on it while you slip the tumbler back in now loop the belt around the tumbler and after the tumber is sitting on your glides spin the tumbler till the belt is in place,if you can have somebody help you its easyer putting the tumbler back in with 2 people while keeping the belt on the pully on the bottom of the dryer. any other problems or questions let me know i've dont mine about 6 months age its a little pain in the **** but not inpossable

My creda reverseair tumberledryer won';t work. my


Hi

If you can hear the motor running and have also checked the belt tension and they are O.K., then the only thing I can think of is the Motor pulley, where the belt sits on.

Check that out and make sure it is not loose on the motor shaft, so that the motor turns but the pulley slips.

Regards
Ash
