You need to check the heater element and thermostats which are lolcated behhind a removeable panel at the rear of the dryer..
You will need a meter to do this. Remove one wire from each thermostat and with the meter on the ohms range, test for continuity,if the stats are o/k you will get full scale deflection on the meter., if no movement then stat faulty, you must replace both stats at the same time.
take note which stat goes where as it is important you get them the right way round.
If stats o/k then the heater element is probably faulty.Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
PS, make sure all filters and vents are clean
Particularly the filter at the bottom left, remove it and wash it out under running water.

Hotpoint not drying clothes


Check the vent hose and the vent in the house for dryer lint. Excessive amounts will block airflow and the dryer senses that and shuts off the heat to prevent a fire.

Hotpoint Aquarius TDL30 tumble dryer timer not advancing


fmw76:

This could be a timer issue or a thermostat.
If you are using a timed dry it would be timer .
If you are using an auto dry cycle it would possibly be a thermostat.

Drier Motor


Disconnect the vent at the back of the dryer and dry a load unvented to make sure you don't have a clog in the vent line too the outside causing an air flow restriction, if still not drying check and make sure the blower wheel that circulates the heat inside the dryer isn't broken.
