there is a sensor located beneath the lint filter, more the likely the dryer sheet residue is on it, gently brush it off, it has two screws. As far as the loud thud noise is/may be a problem with the drum/rollers/glides/belt/idler arm/motor Here is a website that will assist you, once the filter light goes off and the drum will not turn.Good Luck Tim
1) belt may be stretched, examine belt for cracking and if it looking old replace 2) idler arm/pulley may be wore out, examine 3) drum rollers/glides may be wore out (second link) 4) motor may be going out
take it that the belt is ok and the drum is turning.The heater comes
with thermostats fitted as a complete part.There is an overload safety
thermostat which is situated inside the drum and above the door,it is
held in place with a self tapping screw then prise open the plastic
cover and then the thermostat will pull out,if replacing remember to
refit the small gasket.Have you checked the filters and exhaust hose for
any blockages as this will affect the heating.
this could be the stats or the drum is not turning
Common faults - 1 Theheating elementscan fail
(meaning open circuit) 2 There arecut-outs (T.O.C's)that
might need resetting 3 Thethermostats (stats)can trip
out or burn out (meaning opencircuit) 4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors andpcb's (Printed circuitboards)thesehave
programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode
showing you were the fault is. 5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be
The belt is acessable from the front of the dryer you can remove it by popping the top up then taking off the front of the dryer off the drum will come out now place the belt around the drum and put back in now the belt goes around the drum the motor pulley and under the tentioner pulley replace front and top and you are good to go thank you
