Creda Reversair Sensa Dry Tumble Dryer produces no heat.
Model number is 37649,
Machine rotates and operates as normal but no heat in either the low or high heat setting. Do you think it is likely to be a thermostat cut-out or the heater element. Do you know if their are more than one thermostat cut-outs or more than one heating element?

Re: Creda Reversair Sensa Dry Tumble Dryer produces no...
There is only 1 heater element, and normally one thermostat.
they are located at the rear of the m/c, behind a removable panel.
If you are not sure whether it is the element or stat, join the two
wires togeher that go to the stat, if the heater then works, replace stat. if no heat, replace heater.
plz leave feed back for this solution.

The issue isn't a "problem" with the dryer, the issue is that it's hard to tell which switch position enables the 'low heat' function. The question is: Is the switch pressed in at the top or the bottom for 'Low Heat'?
It depends on which make and model of tumble dryer you have as to
how easy it is to replace the relevant parts. Some tumble dryers have heating elementsthat are easily accessible by removing
the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious burning
out or open circuit. Others though have theirheating elementsinside, which aren't accessible
without stripping the dryer down we will try and cover as many as possible in
orvideo tutorials section.
Tumble dryerheating elements
are always protected by thermal fuses and thermostats which are usually simple
devices with 2 wires connected and have a bimetal strip inside them. They can
be tested for continuity with a test meter. The problem is that if a
stat (thermostat) ort.o.c. (thermal overload cut-out)has gone open circuit, it may be for a
reason. Overheating could have caused it by not being able to vent the air due
to a blockage some ware. Blockedfiltersor even the machine not being allowed
its ten minute cooling down period, Overloading can cause it as well. Sometimes
they can go for no apparent reason. A blocked or severely kinkedvent hosecan
also cause overheating.

If you plan to try to repair the problem yourself, then the first thing you want to do is unplug the dryer from the electric. Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil. You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty. If the heating coil is ok, then: You can check the thermostat/thermistor by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape. If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor. DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST. This could cause a fire, as you have removed the saftey of overheat from the machine. Good Luck, Hope this helps
You do not state whether it is a condenser or vented dryer.
the most obvious reasn for no heat is element and/or stats..
The only way to confirm which it is-- is to meter them out with a multi meter..
If you have one then set it on the ohms range and test the components for continuity, you should get full scale deflection if they are o/k.
You must disconnect the wires to the components, or you will get a false reading, and needless to say, have the m/c unplugged.
If all test o/k then the problem could be with the timer and or control unit, or the heater relay if it has one.Unknown to me as I do not know your model number.
If it is a condenser dryer, make sure all filters are clear, air intake and outlet vents clear, water container empty .
