Question about Dryers
I have an Indesit is70c dryer, it was working fine up to last night we put a load into it, cleaned the filters and emptied the water tray as it is the condenser model but after the full time the clothes are still wet. the drum is turning fine with motor ect... but its only blowing cold air is there a thermal fuse or switch on or inside machine or is the heater element gone???
Take off the back plate of the drier to expose heating elements. There you will find two thermo switches, one with a hole in the middle of it. Push something like a pin into this hole until you hear a click. Re assemble back plate and it should work now
- JUST TRIED THIS, WORKED FIRST TIME, IF I DIDNT SEE THIS I WAS GOING TO HAVE TO BUY A £50 HEATER ELEMENT AND £17.99 THERMOSTATS!.. THANKS SO MUCH WE HAVE SAVED £67.99 REALLY CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH (ianmann288). Cheers! A credit to fixya!

Must be Groundhog Day .. my IS70C has done the exact same ie: started a burning smell then stopped heating - a jammed bra wire didn't help.
I took the small cover off then the cover over the heater/motor - the two thermostats are located above the heater but you have to take the 2 screws out to release the heater element to get to the back of the thermostats. I used a drawing pin to reset it and it worked immediately.
I thank you very much for your help in this matter!

Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail(meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) thatmight need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can tripout or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehaveprograms that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcodeshowing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also bethe fault.
