Hi.
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 .
Plz rate my solution
Thanks

How to fit belt on Creda Reversair 37643 Tumble dryer


New belt is very tight, so you have to use more strength. Put it on motor and all other on "drum". Spin it easily and slowly but with strength until its done.


Be carefully, use gloves.

How to fit creda thermostats


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 elements that 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 their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down we will try and cover as many as possible in or video tutorials section. Tumble dryer heating 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) or t.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. Blocked filters or 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 kinked vent hosecan also cause overheating.

Not getting hot


Sounds like the heating element has broke. If it spins and doesnt produce heat its best to call someone out, or buy a new one. If nothing works, check fuses and connections

Hi, I ahve a creda tumble dryer T60CW which has sunddenly stopped getting hot. Is this a problem I can fix or do I just by another


It is more than likely going to be one of 2 things, the stats and /or the heater element need replacing.
You will find these located behind a removable panel at the rear of the dryer.
You need a meter to test them for continuity, it is more likely to be the stats as opposed to the heater element.Disconnect 1 wire from each stat to test them.

Creda Reversair Sensa Dry Tumble Dryer produces no heat.


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.
Thanks.

No heat to tumble dryer


Check the thermal disc with an OHM meter. One will be next to the heat element (high limit) and another on the air exhaust area which is the low limit.

Check the thermostats. Could also be a reset-able overheating thermostat that needs to be reset.
