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

I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.

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
