Please first check if both fuses or the circuit breaker has not tripped.
If you are getting only 120v on one leg of the 140v power, you may get lights and no heat, otherwise please give the make and model.

SOURCE: Hoover nextra mega load 7.5kg

On the rear there is a Heating element hidden under the silver cover, on the top of this unit, there is 2 thermostat's, one is a auto-reset set (On the left) around the 100'c mark and one is a single use thermal trip set at 130'c (on the right, also denoted by a blue spot), the idea is when the heater reaches 100'c is powers off until the air temp drops, once it drops the auto-reset kicks in and forses the heater to power back up, however, in the intrests of safety, if the auto reset fails to power down then the 130'c thermostat will permenently remove power from the heater and will illuminate the filter care light, the only way to restore the power to the heater is to either have an engineer replace the whole heater as Hoover/candy do not sell on the thermal cut out to anyone.

you can usually find the heater unit for £30-40, an engineer may charge upto £140 for the same part and fitting.

SOURCE: hoover tumble dryer filter light staying on and

if you have cleaned your filter at the door and checked the outlet is not blocked either then it will most likely be the heater element on the back of the machine, it has three parts to it, 1 thermal switch,2 is some sort of magnetic type switch and 3rd is the element its self,

problem is its only sold as one unit, but very easy to replace.

the filter care light comes on when the machine is over heating so the "brain" thinks the lint trap is full , clean the entire venting system, including the outside vent cover and remove any debris , then unplug the machine for a few minutes and see if it resets

Hi the my filter light keeps flashing and iv got no heat!


My guess is that the heater element has gone out. There could also be a lint clog in the exhaust vent...it takes air out through the filter...across the heater element....and back through the tumbler to heat the clothes. This is usually what causes heat elements to go out is the excess lint that gets on them and causes them to overheat and burn out!
