Sounds like either the thermostat has gone open circuit or the element has gone open circuit, have you tried different heat settings just in case it`s just one on the elements or sensors that have failed?? If you`re handy with a meter, unplug the dryer from the mains, Remove the top cover and you should see a large shiny metal box on top covered in what looks like spongy tin foil, somewhere on that box you should see a couple of wires going to a sensor which is screwed to this box, disconnect one of the wires and read across the connectors, it should read short circuit, if it doesn`t, then this sensor has failed. There may be two or three, some are thermostats, and there may be one which is a thermal fuse. They should all read short circuit or low resistance. If they are OK, you then need to located the wires which go to the element inside the box. When you remove a wire from the element, (Only remove one wire at a time so that you can reconnect it immediately after the test) you should get a reading across all the connectors, ranging from about 20 ohms to about 200 ohms, anything above this and the element has failed. I hope this is helpful, Ian

It is taking far too long to dry, this has only recently started? what could be the problem?


Does it get hot? If it does, then the problem is reduced air flow, caused by a lint filter that hasn't been cleaned, masses of fluff in the exhaust pipe (usually on bends), or the external vent not opening properly. Birds can also nest in the vent pipe if the vent isn't protected or is broken.

If it doesn't get hot, you need a new element. Some dryers have two elements if the dryer has a high and low setting. just one element can fail.

Beko condenser dryer not drying clothes it is


Well the bad news is this is a extremely cheap unit. It was thought that a sensor that would know when your clothes were dry was a good energy saving idea. Well it wasn't This is a very common issue in these dryers. The Sensor needs to be replaced.

Zanussi tumble dryer does not get very hot


Hi, I take it from the description taht you have given your T/dryer is a condenser? If this is the case you could be looking at several problems? 1 it could be the large filter underneath the tumble dryer this could be blocked with fluff causing it not to condense quick enough! 2 it could be the water collection pump? Can you her it running? 3 It could be that half the heater has failed causing it not to get hot enough to dry?
Try these hopefully it should steer you in the right direction!

Washer dryer is no longer drying


two things to check take rear half of cabinet off and check the dryer duct (lhs from front) is not blocked. this is very common check water is being taken in during dry - the water is used to condense steam from the drying clothes. easiest way to check this is to see that some water is being drained during the drying cycle. i assume that drain is operating ok
