First, use a voltmeter to confirm that you have 240 volts to the outer two terminals where the cord connects onto the dryer, and 120 volts from each of the outer terminals to the center terminal. If that checks out OK, look for a broken belt. (a broken belt opens a switch to prevent the motor from running) If that is OK, look for a safety thermostat, about the size of a dime with two wires on it, usually near the top of the heating element. If no continuity there, replace it and try to improve the vent to prevent future problems with it. Newer dryers have auto reset safety thermos, but older ones didn't and they acted like a fuse and needed to be replaced if they tripped. Next time you post a problem, please list the brand and model number. Thanks.

    Sorry, I'm in the USA and don't have any direct info on Idesit brand so I can't look up part numbers or find diagrams on it, but the info in my solution should still be sound. If you need more assistance, prehaps you will have to try another post listing brand and model so someone in the UK will take a shot at it.

I have an AEG Lavatherm 56840L condenser dryer which has just died.No dispay anything! I have checked the fuse and know the socket is good but beyond this I am lost.Any ideas?

Ok you said you checked the outlet, question is how did you check it. Cause it may show power, but the neutral wire may have the problem. You could have power to the box but without the neutral it will do you no good. Now if you open the panel of your dryer you should find the tech sheet, which will aid you to trouble shooting, in case your outlet is good. Take a lamp and plug it in, see if will light up.

My dryer quit heating and I replaced thermal fuse. It heats now, but when the door is opened it does not stop running. The switch seems to be OK. Have any suggestions? It did not do this before fuse...

Hello Rohanna

You need to check this following:
Make sure the dryer is plugged in securely
Check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker
Test the power outlet for voltage
Inspect the electrical cord for damage
Eliminate use of an extension cord, if any is being used
Check the outlet voltage
Test the door switch
Test the start switch
Test the safety fuse
Test the thermostats
Test the timer motor
Test the motor

Dryer has power but will not heat

Remove the back of it and also the top. There is a relay switch that could be bad. If the element is ok, check the relay by bypassing it. If it works, then replace it . Look at the wiring first when you take ff the back. This is common to it, since the fuses are ok. There could be just a wire that is burned and come loose from the connections.b

Same problem with my Whirlpool Dryer: Model LER4634EZ2 which stopped heating. I checked the coils that was "OK" then I checked the fuse that was "OK" I replaced the Thermal Fuse and High Limit Thermostat then after starting the dryer the heat came on ... problem solved NO.... the dryer just kept running and running until I opened the dryer door. Not going to put 70 or so $$$ into this 10 year old dryer which up until 12/15/2011 worked fine.

I have no power

Check all your breakers/fuses panel if none are tripped or blown we will assume power is @ the outlet, check it w/ a meter if you have one. I have never seen a reset button on one before but there could be a internal fuse inside the unit, to check for that you will have some disassemble work 1st

Dryer won't come on. it is plugged in and the outlet and breaker checked out ok.

are you getting voltage when you say you checked outlet? is it a gas or electric dryer? should have 220 or so at dryer for electric and 120 for gas. if voltage ok, trace it through to fuse most likely. no light in dryer means no voltage...
