Re: No hot air from my tumble dryer
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 .

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.

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.

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.
