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
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
