It could be the heat limiter switch which is either one or two run in series little button looking things near the element on the back, usually under a bowed out cover. Also check the resistance on the heating element after you have pulled the wires that go to the terminals so you don't get a false reading. Other than that it gets into checking contacts on the timer itself and that gets a little lengthy in discussing. Hope that helps.

Whirlpool AWZ 7303 tumbling but not drying.


blower wheels will get loose in dryers. Sometimes they will get a whole lump of lint in them or you can hear a rattling noise in the dryer, this is the blower wheel, its worn out and it can cause the fuse to blow too,or it can half *** work and take fifty forever's to dry the clothes.Or it could be just that the dryer needs a good blowing out .I use a lawn blower to get all the lint out of the dryer as well as the vent pipe and vent to outside. I take the filter HOUSING out and wash it also. That is, I remove the housing and clean is good! Making sure that the dryer is properly flowing air is a good thing!

Dryer is working but wont tumbel


This does sound like the belt has broken. Is the Defy autodryer the one that made the sound and then stopped tumbling?

Tumble dryer


Can be a few things. Start by resetting your circuit breaker. The dryer motor can run with partial power but the heating element cannot. Make sure your not set to a no heat setting. After those checks you have to get into the mchine to check your heating element and thermostats.
