There are a number of reasons for dryer not to heat, first and foremost is failure of the stats and or element. You will find these located behind a removable cover at rear of dryer.
If you know how to use a meter, then test these for continuity.
If o/k then it gets more involved as there are several other possibilities and you need to know what you are doing.
The only other thing to check is that all the filters and air inlet and outlet vents are clean, particularly the one at the front left. pull out and wash under running water to flush all fluff out.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

The noise could be .... the drum sometimes has stick on metal pads for balance or heat shields that will come up and start smacking on the cabinet of the dryer. Remove or lift the top of the dryer and turn the drum and looks for these pads. if one has lifted either glue it back or cut the part off that has lifted.

As far as the not drying part ..... it could be that the dryer is just getting tired and the heating element is gong bad or it could be something as simple as cleaning out the vent going out of the house. You can do this by disconnecting the dryer from the wall and blowing it out with a leaf blower or having someone come in and do it professionally.

Hope this helps.

No heat


Check on the back of the drum for a thermal fuse or relay. Common fault on tubledryers is no power to heating coils becuse of blown fuse or most likely the relay to heating coils is dirty. have to be cleaned about every 2/3 years depending on use.

Hotpoint aquarius tumble dryer, drum not going round but still


If you can hear the motor going, then the belt probably needs replacing, if no motor action, then prob is more serious.
