Generally, these units are gotten into from the back panel. Be sure to disconnect the power. There are two breakers linked together.

My candy tumble dryer gov218-80 blows just cold

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or

The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty, test it with avolt-ohm-multimeter (VOM)set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the leads from the power terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. The meter should read about 12 ohms. If the reading is higher ohms, the heater is faulty and should be replaced. Replace a faulty heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. A heater connected to a 115-volt line usually has an 8.4-ohm resistance; a heater connected to a 220-volt line usually has 11 ohms resistance.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

OR you may have a broken centrifugal switch in the motor because this switch activates the motor and the heater as well. supposed to be if the motor does not run , the heater should not heat in order not to create fire but you said that even the motor is not running, the heater is still heating, then there could be a problem with the motor centrifugal switch that is connected to this interlock switch that should trigger the heater.

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Hi, My candy CIC60 tumble dryer has stopped drying and the empty water light is constantly on. The timer works. I have cleaned all filter,emptied water, checked for loose wires and I can not see a problem....

Tumble dryers are really not around my neck of the woods however I have studdied them just in case they do begin to show up around here. What turns on the light and kills power to the dryer when the water tank is full? A float switch. I bet that float switch is stuck. Probably something simple like that.

The tumble dryer tumbles but I have no heat and the filter light

Since the heating element is not heating up when powered up you must have a bad heating element.

Creda Reversair Sensa Dry Tumble Dryer produces no heat.

There is only 1 heater element, and normally one thermostat.
they are located at the rear of the m/c, behind a removable panel.
If you are not sure whether it is the element or stat, join the two
wires togeher that go to the stat, if the heater then works, replace stat. if no heat, replace heater.
plz leave feed back for this solution.
