Question about Washing Machines
Hello, I hope you can help.
Essentially the problem seems to be that no hot air is being circulated around the drum as the clothes are cold and damp even after a drying cycle. I have tried both delicate and normal drying, but no joy. I have emptied the filter on the front of the machine (which did have a plastic shirt clip in it - broken!). There is water going in to the machine, and the water is being pumped out so the condensing side of things looks to be in order. I believe there is a thermal cut out, where is this situated?? And is it something that anyone could reset??
SOURCE: Dryer does not dry clothes
On the top of the heater box there is a thermal fuse that blows if the dryer overheats, on this model it could occur if the air circulation fan is faulty, or the condenser valve is faulty, alternatively the sump hose filter may be blocked, only a closer inspection of these items will determin which the problem is.

Check the 240v coming in.
You may have tripped a breaker and one side of the 240v is working allowing some control but no heat.
Check also for a burned element and loose connection.

I've got this machine, and all washer dryers tend to have two heating elements and it sounds to me that the heating element for the drying side of the machine's functions needs replacing. You could probably find a cheap element for the machine somewhere and get it fitted for a small sum.
Let me know if this rectifies your problem

Check The Ducting To Make Sure There Is No Obstructions Inside. Find The Outlet Outside Where The Duct Goes And See If Your Getting A lot Of Air. In Some Cases You May Have To Remove The Back Of The Dryer To Remove The Biggest Lint Ball In The World.
This Huge Lint Ball Builds Up Over Time And Quickly For Users Who Do Not Clean The Lint Trap On Every Cycle.
All Of The Above Will Cause The Dryer To Not Be Able To Get Good Air Flow Thus Causing The Machine To Have To Much Back Pressure.
