Here are the most likely problems:

- bad heating element, or

- bad thermal limit switch/tstat, or

- loose/corroded/broken connection in heating element circuit

All of these require taking the dryer apart -- if you want to pursue this, let me know.

Dryer wont heat up on a aquarius VTD00, do you think its the element


A tumble dryer that isn't heating up at all needs checking with a continuity test meter. The most common cause is a heating element failure, or t.o.c's going open circuit. . Some tumble dryers have heating elements that are easily accessible by removing the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious breakage. Others though have their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down. Tumble dryer heating elements are always protected by thermal fuses which are usually simple devices with 2 wires connected. They can be tested for continuity with a test meter. Also overloading and blocked filters can lead to thermo cut out, it is best to check your manual and call someone out on this occasion. You may even have a red reset button on the rear of your machine some models do, if yours doesnt then call out engineer :)

Kenmore dryer doesnt heat


You may also need to change your thermal fuse and the thermostat. On some models the thermal fuse operates the heating element only and others the whole dryer

Dryer will run forever if it doesnt heat up, Dryer has to heat up and thermostat has to get hot and open to start the timer. Odds are rally great, it is your heating element.
