Most likely, the orange relay switch (Schrack RT314024) on the circuit board of the dryness module (blue colour) is faulty. RS electrics and Farnell has it. Costs £2.50. Mine had the same problem and changing it sorted it. I also replaced all the four small electrolyte capacitors on the circuit board (which you don't have to replace - I am a bit fussy with capacitors).
Your thermostats and heating elements are good (don't change these).
