SOURCE: Defy Tumble dryer not heating

Is this an electric dryer? If so, the most common problem would be a burned-out heating element. There could also be a defective temperature sensor inside. This will need to be evaluated by a qualified appliance repair technician to find the exact cause.

SOURCE: Tumble dryer not heating

Hi irshaad,
If all the componants are good, you are loosing voltage somewhere. Check the voltage to the dryer. If you do not have 220 volts then you have a blown fuse or a kicked breaker in your fuse box. This would allow only 110 volts to get to the dryer and the dryer would run and not heat. If you have the correct voltage to the dryer check the connections on the terminal block and the wires to the block. Before going any further than that I would really rather have your model so I could guide you correctly. Good luck and I really hope this will FixYa.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Dryer Does not dry

Its the thermal fuse. when you jump or, by-pass the cycle thermostat, you are basically by-passing the fuse as well. replacing the thermal fuse will fix thsi issue.

The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Wiring diagram for dtd313 tumble dryer


Here is a possible. I know this is where it is located on some of their driers. Disconnect dryer and in the back of dryer in top left hand corner is your diagram, looking from back of dryer, just remove the 6 screws from the top panel at the back of the dryer. Most appliances have them tucked away somewhere on the equipment itself

Where do I find the capacitor in a defy tumbledrier model DTD242


Capacitors are used on the motors to add additional starting torque. If your dryer has a cap, it will be on or near the motor. Dryer electrical elements do not have caps: they are resistive.

Mod LEQ9558KQ1 won't heat at all. will tumble and otherwise run. Have multimetered ht element, 3 thermo's, power cord, 220 outlet, thermal fuse, and temperature switch. All check good (believe I checked...


After also checking the main selection switch (for perma press, normal, timed, etc.), which was also good, I finally started checking wiring. Found a wire burned in two. It was the red wire coming off the connections where the power cord connects to the dryer. Cut it, spliced it, put it all back together and it's now working as it should.

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 :)
