I have a indesit is31vu tumble dryer and it started to blow cold air i think it must be the thermostat hust wondered is it easy to change or am i better off buying new one?

There is more than 1 thermostat, and it could be the element.
TThe parts are located at the rear of the dryer behind a removeable panel.
You need a meter to test them with.
Hope this helps.

My dryer only blows cold air I replaced the

Yes it is quite possibly your thermostats, A kit can be purchased for the majority of all Whirlpool dryers and is around $30.00 part number is LA-1053. But it can vary based on your model. However the first place i would have technician check is the fuses or breakers inside your home as this can often cause the dryer to only run on 110v when 220v is need to run both the motor and the element.Hope this helps.

Gas dryer wont heat up, blows only cold air.what would cause this

Could be a bad hi limit thermostat. Could be a bad glowbar ignitor. Check the glowbar ignitor at the gas valve, is it glowing bright orange/red? If not. Replace the ignitor.

My kenmore dryer is blowing out cold air

Make sure that both poles of your circuit are live - An electric dryer uses 220 volts to the heating element, but taps into only one pole (110 volt) for the motor that spins the drum. Check your circuit breaker to make sure that neither pole has tripped.

Hotpoint tdc62p changed thermostats as blowing out cold air,

Make sure that all filters are properly cleaned, and that the air inlet and outlet vents are clear. Make sure water container is empty.
The best way to clean the filter at the bottom is to run cold water through it, this will clear out all the lint.. Make sure you have the correct stats ( there are many for the hotpoint range) and that you have them in the correct position on the heater back plate.
Plz rate this solution.
