Look for the air tube that runs from the blower to the drum.
The heating element is normally located inside of it.

I hope this helps

Dryers do what they are designed to do, Dry things. In the process everything inside the drying cylinder makes dust and airborne particulates called Lint. The Biggest bane for dryers is Lint accumulation. Clean the Lint filter screen. If it detaches from the dryer housing with screws remove them. Clean out what you see if you have a wet vacuum with a small hose carefully push this down into the opening and vacuum it ou. Another thing pull your dryer out from the wall disconnect the power and remove the vent hose. Vacuum inside the opening in the back of the dryer. You would be surprised how much lint accummulates here. Lastly check your vent hose for lint accumulation or blockage. If you find it blocked, disconnect the hose from the vent going outside and clean it all out with a vacuum . Put it all back together and run a load of clothes if you dont see a marked improvement in circulation and drying time, then either the blower fan is n't working properly or you have a burned out thermostat. If you have heat flowing turn it up to max heat and see how hot it really gets if on opening the dryer you feel extreme heat then it is either working right or the thermostat is not shutting off at the high limit. the Thermostat is a piece of Bimetallic metal that is extremely sensitive to certain temperatures. When they reach the preset heat limit they shut off allowing the heating elements not to burn out. A good investment is to keep dryer maintenance at regular intervals. They sell dryer cleaning brushes and Vacuum hose attachments for getting into the deep crevasses and nether regions of your dryer. Good luck and happy drying

Hi, My Simpson maxidry 456 dryer, heats up and appears to work, gets hot and cuts out. It is steaming the clothes but does not dry them. Would this be a fan problem, How can i fix it? Ta!


9 out of 10 times this is going to be a restriction in your vent line. Check where it goes outdoors and see if there is a steady flow of warm air. If not, take the vent off of the wall behind the dryer and either have a handyman snake it clear to the outside or take a leaf blower and blow it clear. A good way to test for a restriction before doing all of this is to run a cycle with the vent disconnected from the back of the dryer. The steam is a result of the hot wet air from the clothes having nowhere to go. Good luck =)

Simpson Maxidry Tumble dryer (Cloths dryer) How


Hi there, There is a switch at the bottom of the dryer. It has a groove for the spring to fit around. Then the spring goes through the metal tag with the holes in the pulley. The pulleys 2 prongs then fits into the slot near the motor. The belt goes through the pulley and around the motor wheel. When fitting the drum, tape the belt at three points on the drum with the machine door facing down making installation easier. Once installed remove the tape. The dryer now works like a dream. See the attached photo. Good Luck!8e72e75.jpg

Yes - the vent exhausts humid air, and draws IN fresh dry air. So the humid air is staying trapped in your unit.
