TDC 30 tumble dryer

Where is the heating element on the TDC30? The t/stats are at the back but I may as well replace the element at the same time.

Any help? My dryer is working but its not heating up. I have cleaned all the filters. Whats the problem?

Your going to want to remove the back of your dryer. There should be a heating element housing back there. You may be able to see it by taking the top off to. It might not be your element that is causing the problem with your drying. You may have a bad thermal fuse. When you find the element turn on the dryer and as it runs watch the element. If it turns on and then off after just a few seconds then you have a problem with the thermal fuse. If it doesn't come on at all chances are the element needs to be replaced. Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck. Also, let me know if this was helpful to you please.

SOURCE: TDC 30 tumble dryer

To test the heating element you need to access it by taking apart the back panel, and test it for continuity using a multimeter.

There are also a couple of fuses/circuit breakers that you should test.

Entering the model number here you get the exploded view, and replacement parts.

When you start the dryer does it sound as if it is running but it does not tumble? Or does it make a humming noise?

If it sounds like it's running I'd check the belt first,
Humming noise and burning smell Dan indicate a bad motor or something stuck in blower wheel.

My beko tumble dryer is not heating up

Elements is generally behind the back panel, may not be an element fault but a tripped stat. If you're lucky the stat will be a self resetting one and not have to be replaced just reset. Always isolate from mains before removing any covers etc.

I have a hotpoint tumble dryer model TDC30 and it is not drying the cloths. I have looked at the heating element which was broken so I replaced it. I have buzzed out the thermostats which seem to be fine....


If you are sure that the thermostats are both ok and the element has been replaced then the only other thing it can be is either a blockage or the timer that is at fault.

Hope this helps,

Hotpoint Aquarius VTD 00 Tumble dryer no heat

Hi, it sounds like the reset stat gone on your vented drier. Remove the back cover, where the element is, and you should find two stats, one with a green spot. That's your reset stat. If you have a multimeter, turn it to buzzer and check the stat by touching the connections with the meter leads. If there's no buzzing, it's the reset stat. also check if the dark side of the stat is pushed inside. Remove the stat and hold it about 20inches from the floor. Drop it on the floor and the dark side will become flat. Repeat as many times as necessary. GUARANTEED TO WORK. Put everything back and that's it.

Creda Reversair Sensa Dry Tumble Dryer produces no heat.

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.
plz leave feed back for this solution.

Zanussi tc7103w tumble dryer not generating heat

There is a thermostat inside the drum if you open the door and feel up the front you will feel a disc with 2 screws holding it in remove the screws to expose the stat pull the stat out there will be 2 wires attatched to it. If you have a ohm meter check for continuity across the 2 conections or If you connect those 2 wires together and try the machine it should heat if so you will need to replace that stat. If still no heat i would suspect the heater to have failed
