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!

There is no heat


Disconnect power and access your dryer fuses. Check and test your fuses for "continuity". Most likely, a white thermal fuse. Can possibly be your ignitor or heat element as well. Is your dryer gas or electric?

Hoover nextra mega load 7.5kg HNC175 condenser dryer has 1)stopped heating, the drum still goes round and cold air goes in. 2) The filter care light is on, i have taken out the condenser assembly and...


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.

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.

Dryer stuck in sensing mode


Since no help was available without premium assistance, I actually contacted a repairman. He performed all the tests again and told me the problem was the control board. Then wanted $600 to fix. I found the part online for $150 and fixed it myself in about an hour. Instructions were easy.
