This will probably be one of the thermostats on the element, on some models these have a reset button.

Take the lid off the machine and you will see the heating element, the thermostats are sat on top of it with wires going to them, if they have buttons in the middle press them and if one of them clicks your heat should be restored.

Try this and post back your findings for further assistance if required.

Ive got a Indesit WIDL102 washer dryer and it will wash but will not dry any longer. It goes through the cycle but the clothes come out wet. Any suggestions???


This problem is normally caused by either the thermostats not working properly or the heating element is the problem.
Both are normally located in the air tube of the dryer down stream of the blower.

Indesit washer dryer won't heat up in dryer mode


i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
