Finding The Thermostat

Hi There, I am wondering if someone can point me in the right direction as to where to find the thermostat on my tumble dryer please? The problem i am having with the machine is, its spinning but its not heating up!! After reading some of the posts already i've tried testing the heater element and it appears to be okay(I THINK!!!) Could somone also just let me know how to test it with a multimeter to make sure i am doing it the right way!! Cheers Dicko69

Re: Finding The Thermostat

Overheat stat is near the heater - maybe moiunted on it. to test heater. disconnect from mains. disconnect all wires from heater - this may mean disconecting at plug and socket. put meter on ohms. put probes on heater terminals. don't know value of heater off hand but propably about 20 ohms cold

It will not dry our clothes. There is heat and it tumbles just fine, but it won't dry. There was a major clug in the venting, and that's all cleaned out. I was wondering if one of the sensors might need...

Hello- Yes, you may have a thermostat or sensor issue. Also, check the breaker and flip it off and on (it will be a double breaker 220V) there is the possibility that it is only getting 120V. I would also disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer and run a load through it and see if it dries better. You may want to attach some pantyhose to the back to alleviate lint in the air if you are worried about it. If it still doesn't dry well have someone out to check the heater and thermostats. Good luck, best regards.

I have a indesit is31vu tumble dryer and it started to blow cold air i think it must be the thermostat hust wondered is it easy to change or am i better off buying new one?

There is more than 1 thermostat, and it could be the element.
TThe parts are located at the rear of the dryer behind a removeable panel.
You need a meter to test them with.
Hope this helps.

Hi, My Indesit is60v tumble dryer has developed a heating (or lack of) fault. I have replaced the heating element & stats. I notice that it only heats when the drum is going in one direction, when it...

yes it will heat in one direction the longer clockwise one... when it does its short reverse tumble it switches off... there is also a duct thermostat that could be causing the premature heat output but also check the vent pipe and hose for blockage plus door filter remove and look down the hole as build up could be hidden...

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
