SOURCE: bosch tumble dryer, model wta 4100 , no heat,

If the dryer isn't heating, check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. Both components are located in the rear of the dryer. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.

The tumble dryer is working perfectly and is vented through the external wall with a plastic hose , however the dryer is producing high moisture levels we have checked the connection fro the dryer to the...

Your problem is probably a heavy lint build up in the Dryer or Hose.

Check your blower system on the dryer for a heavy lint build up, also remove to clean or vaccum or whatever is necessary to clean the plastic tubing because they will still flow some air, but be really plugged up with lint and could cause a dryer fire.

I have an indesit IS60V tumble dryer and it's no longer drying my clothes even though the dryer tumbles fine. I have checked the filters to ensure they are clean and the vent hose which all appear ok.


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

The tumble dryer is working but not heating??? cleaned all filters and water tank. any ideas???

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. In your case it is better that y ou call in an engineer to test it. Also overloading and blocked filters can cause the thermostat to cut out and they can also go with simple wear and tear. Check your service manual for spare parts etc

No heat from my tumble dryer

Presumably the motor and fan are working.
Check filter, and if it is vented with a hose, make sure it is not blocked with fluff. if all seems to be o/k, then the heating element is probably faulty.
Please leave good feedback if this helps with your problem

Hoover nextra tumble dryer

Please first check if both fuses or the circuit breaker has not tripped.
If you are getting only 120v on one leg of the 140v power, you may get lights and no heat, otherwise please give the make and model.

Dryer takes longer

You need four things,each in the right amount to effectively dry clothes: Heat, Airflow, Tumbling and Time. The first two account for probably 90% of dryer problems. It looks like you almost ruled out #2 but this design likes to build lint up in the filter housing below the filter. Shine a strong light down into the slot where the filter goes. Pick out any clumps with a refrigerator coil brush and a vacuum. To rule out not enough airflow due to long vent etc. run one load through with the vent totally disconnected and see if it makes a difference. Otherwise we'll asssume the drum tumbles and that you're setting it for enough time. Check the temperature is left. You can get a rough idea of the drum temp by using a meat thermometer in the exhaust duct. Normal range is between 140-200 degrees.
