Question about Dryers
SOURCE: creda tumble dryer
It is probably the electric heater coil. How old is the machine? If a couple of years or more, the coil is probably burnt out. It is accessible through the back. Good luck!

its either going to be fluff in the float which you can get at by taken the side panel off .or its fluff in the valve behind the water tank

You need to check if the belt is o/k.
Remove top cover, and grasp belt, it should be firmly wrapped around drum.
If o/k, then could be a motor problem, or programmer fault
Once you have got the drum turning again, it is possible the filter light will go off,if not, then you have another fault
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: water tank full light on
i dont know make of your machine but there has to be a transfer pump somewhere. follow the hose back from the container at the top it will end up at the pump look for blockage or faulty pump.

I had this problem. If you look at the valve on the plastic water tank, you will see that those parts are the same. They fit inside the tumble dryer to shut off the water from flowing onto the floor when the water tank is removed. The white hollow cylinders in the tumble dryer and the water tank push each other open. If you study the water valve on the tank you will see how it is put together. It is all held in place by a little 9mm O ring at the back of the valve. The ring gets tired after a while and pops off. The valve then falls apart and you find the cylinder and spring on the floor and the O ring still inside the dryer. I bought an O ring kit and reassembled the valve inside the dryer using a new ring. You will have to pull the dryer out, turn it upside down and remove the floor to do this

As a matter of fact I have solved the problem. The dryer is now fully functioning again. :-)
I'll try to explain how to fix the problem:
The water that condenses in the condensor (doh!) drips down into a container situated below the condensor. The moist air that passes through the condensor is the same air that circulates via the clothes, thus it also contains some lint that the filter doesn't catch. Over time there will be some build-up of lint and mucus (?), clogging the tank AND a sensor that sends a signal to the electronics to start the pump that evacuates the condensed water to the removable tank in the upper part of the machine. This messes up the function of the water evacuation system.
Alright, pull out the condensor and find a hatch in the 'floor' in the farther part of the compartment. Below the hatch you'll find the container that collects the condensed water. Start by cleaning it as thoroughly as you can. There are a few 'nooks and crannies', take your time, also flush with some fresh water and maybe some gentle cleanser to get rid of the mucus. The pump and the sensor for the pump are located in the left part (viewing from front of the machine) of the container. Try to flush there as well.
If this procedure doesn't solve the problem you'll have to disassemble the machine to also be able to remove the pump and sensor housing. I had to do this on mine. Quite a few screws to remove and keep track of, but pretty straight forward if aren't too uncomfortable with 'fixing things'.
I have some pictures of the 'project' somewhere, let me know if you would like to see them or if I may help you some other way.
