SOURCE: TUMBLE DRYER DOES NOT GET HOT

Hi, - The first thing to do is UNPLUG THE DRYER! Then remove the heater cover situated on the back panel. It is the curvey shaped panel.
Remove all the screws and the panel may be slightly stuck - just prise it off.

Next - there are 2 small screws holding the heater and thermostats assy onto the back panel. - Remove these to free the assy from the back panel. Be careful not to touch the elements as they break easily.

The problem is probably the Thermostats.

The one on the left is the Overheat Thermostat - You will notice a small hole in the centre of the thermostat. Take a Pin and push it firmly into the hole and you may hear the Stat "click". That has re-set the stat.
Re-assemble the Dryer being careful with the elements.

Now - Why has it tripped? If it has overheated it is because of one or all of the following.

1. The Condenser unit is getting blocked - Remove and clean under running water like a hosepipe or tap.
2. The door filter is not being cleaned
3. Sometimes opening the door to check if the clothes are dry and then not allowing the dryer to cool down can cause the problem. Always allow it to go through the cool down process.

Hope this helps. The Heater and the Thermostats are available as Spares - Terry

SOURCE: kenmore gas dryer wont heat up

Check the following areas to combat this issue. the most common problem spot will be a blown Thermal fuse.


1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

SOURCE: hotpoint tumble dryer making a banging noise, is

This could be a simple fix or more of a major task, so if you think you can have a go then great, first find tools and torch, empty any clothes, unplug from the power supply,disconnect vent if any, place unit on a table or bench then remove the back check for large quantities of fluff and dust, clean as much as possible, see if drive belt is secure and not damaged if this is not the case then the drum bearings may be worn, try to move the drum up and down, try the same thing from inside the door, as these dryers tend to wear front bearings quicker than rear ones, if excessive wear and you are confident, remove the drive belt and tensioner take note of the layout, remove supporting bracket at rear of drum taking careful note of where any nuts bolts are from, withdraw the drum you should now have access to all the bearings which are usually like a special plastic runners or ring, contact local supplier stating make and model number ask for a bearing kit, replace bearings and rebuild machine, all this could take up a few hours to a few days so ensure you can manage without a working dryer.............good luck

My Hotpoint CTD00P tumble dryer is not getting hot why could this be?


If it's electric heat then more than likely it's the heating element burned out. If it's gas heat probably the gas solenoid is bad.

Tumble dryer not getting hot


Likely to be a thermostat or heater element problem.
These are located at the rear of the dryer, behind a removeable cover, but you will need a test meter to check them out.
Hope this helps.
