There are other possibilities. Dryers have one or more temperature sensors that will open circuit the heater element if they get too hot. If the sensor goes bad you get no heat. These are usually located near the end of the heater element. Find the wiring diagram and you will see them. With the dryer unplugged you should be able to measure almost no resistance across their terminals. Another possibillity is in the timer. The contacts inside of it could be bad. This is likely if you get heat on some cycles and not others.

Have had two hoover vhv 680c tumble dryers from the coop electrical store. They have worked for two days exactly then when you go to use it again there is no power to the machine (replacement for each...


Purchased one of these tumble dryers on 20th Oct 2011 from Currys, yesterday morning no power whatsoever.
Have refused repair or replacement after seeing your similar problems and also after finding this review that indicates that these tumble dryers dont like the cold.
As many people like us have them in the garage, I'm not interested in one that needs it's own radiator and blanket !!!! grrrr ..

My hoover tumble dryer Hnc175 wont heat up,is still working as normal, just no heat, i have cleaned out the filters and still not working


Heating elements can fail. These are relatively easy and economical to replace. The heating element is not necessarily the culprit if your tumble dryer does not get hot, however. There are thermal overload cutouts fitted to many machines. If they fail, the current will not be passed to the heating element. Replacement is again, fairly straightforward.
Tumble dryers will often have thermostats fitted. A heater control one, and an exhaust thermostat. The first keeps the temperature correct. The second, as its name suggests, monitors the temperature of the exhaust (in case the airflow in the machine is impeded) Once again, replacement is not too much of a problem.

Please look, at the link above, it will show you how to perform troubleshooting. procedures and repair.
If you feel you don't want to do it yourself, please call a Hoover Tech, and get it looked at. Ask for a "Quote" for the repair, so you get an idea of whats what.

Our Hoover Washer Dryer HW130M has stopped drying on the Tumble cycle. It continues to turn and dial turns to cmpletion but doesn't seem to heat up. Only realised as days cooler and not been using outside...


Yes could be the element but there is also a reset button for the element, designed to trip out if ever gets too hot. Remove the top of the machine and button should be clearly visible. Try this first before committing to a new element

Not getting hot


Sounds like the heating element has broke. If it spins and doesnt produce heat its best to call someone out, or buy a new one. If nothing works, check fuses and connections

Hoover OHNV171X Vented Tumble Dryer


It could be the temprature sensor located behind the front cover, it has 2 red wires and is an easy replacable and cheap part.It will need the top removing,front switch cover removing and then the screws for the front cover but not the screws securing the door as this will come off as one. Hope this helps
