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 :)

HOTPOINT Aquarius VTD00 Model. The dryer is producing heat but the barrel is not revolving


hello, first thing to check is the long pin on the inside of the door make sure it's not snaped off, 2nd thing is the belt inside the dryer . if these are both ok then it's possible that the capacitor next to the motor could be faulty give a tap to see if the motor turns good luck

Where do i Find the heating element on my wd640 washer dryer


on top of the drum there is a metal dryer box. the heating element is connected by 2 wires.
it maybe that a build up of lint has tripped your thermal wire out or the thermistor,(you will have to test the continuity).

Hotpont aquarius condenser dryer wont heat


There are a number of reasons for dryer not to heat, first and foremost is failure of the stats and or element. You will find these located behind a removable cover at rear of dryer.
If you know how to use a meter, then test these for continuity.
If o/k then it gets more involved as there are several other possibilities and you need to know what you are doing.
The only other thing to check is that all the filters and air inlet and outlet vents are clean, particularly the one at the front left. pull out and wash under running water to flush all fluff out.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
