Simpson Clothes Dryer not getting hot.

My 5kg Simpson Clothes Dryer works well except that it is not getting hot. The drum turns as it should and the air is blowing freely but the air does not get hot. I have replaced the element in the back but it has not made a difference, it's as if the element is not getting power. Any ideas?

    I sorted the problem, it was the the timer switch at the front which wasn't delivering power to the heater element at the back. See if there is powere getting to the element, if not it may be the timer switch.

    cheers,

Maybe the fan is broken. Or clogged with lint.

SOURCE: maytag compact dryer low heat doesnot dry. works for hrs clothes still damp.

i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

SOURCE: Simpson Sirocco 350 Dryer not heating

there is an oval cover on the back of the dryer. Remove this cover and you will probably find a broken fan belt. A replacement costs about $20 Aus.

NOTE: If you have been using the dryer for a while in this condition there will certainly be moisture inside the dryer. Replace the belt and leave the dryer for a few days to dry itself out (motor and electricals) before firing it up.

Where does the spring clip onto for a simpson ezi loader 5kg clothes dryer


Hi, I too have one of these dryers & have also found a spring, along with alot of fluff, some staples, & remains of the rear seal inside the dryer. must be a manufacturing fault by the looks of things, the spring was bent & twisted & must hold the seal in place. I would say it will need to go to the repair people for replacement. also note the fluff (remains of the seal) had an area where it had burnt from the heating element & could cause a fire.

I repaired my broken fan belt with a drop of super glue - there is virtually no load on the belt and it now works perfectly again. A 30 sec quick fix.

My dryer (Simpson Minimax 150) seems to be choked? It gets hot and the drum spins, but it doesn't dry clothes and upon opening the door, heaps of steamy air pours out. The lint filter is clean. Is there...


Probably the belt from the fan has broken. The fan is what moves the hot steamy air out of the unit.

Simpson Clothes Dryer is smoking from the back


You should check your vent. is your vent in the front or back as some Simpson can vent in the front or back. You may be pluged with lint. safety therostat should shut down if too hot. but the lint may catch on fire. please check it before you use it again.. let me know what you find out? krazytech
