Aquarius WD645 - dryer has stopped heating up

We have replaced the thermostat and dryer element but it is still not getting hot. We've been told it could be a wiring/fuse problem but i'm not really sure where to start looking, is there a diagram of the inside or a wiring diagram?

There is a safety device to prevent overheat. this can be a resetteble stat ie with a little button in the middle - press this button and there may be a little click as it resets. dryer will then work.
other type of safety device is a thermal fuse. this will be mounted on top of the dryer duct inside a sleeve. test for continuity and if open circuit, replace it

Dryer keeps shutting off


DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

The dryer does not get warm everything else works fine just no heat seems as though the heating element has stopped working any idea on how to fix this


its more likely to be thermo stat if you take off the lid you will see the dryer unit on top of that there are 2 little round objects with 2 wires on each they are held in with little metal springs if you buy a thermostat kit they are easy to change

I HAVE A HOTPOINT AQUARIUS WD62 WASHER DRYER. THE DRYER FAN TURNS ON BUT DOES NOT HAVE ANY HEAT COMING THROUGH, ONLY BLOWING COLD. CAN YOU SUGGEST WHAT NEEDS CHANGING? THANKS - RICHARD S


It will be a faulty thermostat or element more than likely, or a broken wire.
Remove top cover, and you will see the heater manifold over to the right side, there you will see the element and thermostats.
You will need a meter to test them.
Hope this helps.

Wd645 has no power to on/off switch. changed plug


Could be mains choke. Mains power comes into mahine via wall socket /worth checking this then onto mains filter/Choke..then to switch..So if no power here check this..wish you well

It runs, but no heat


i dont believe at this time its anything mentioned at top most people dont realize that dryers are split cuircuts
is this a 220 setup
and if its a 220
the cuircuit breaker for this is set by 110 each one for the heating element one 110 for the guages and motor
goto circuit breaker and flip the breakers this should return your dryer working ability
other thing is are the guages working properly
dryer doesnt have to run to test guages turn to the highest setting and let them run completly threw cycle if they stop on a particular setting for a long length of period then the guages are bad
