ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor with an ohm meter or by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape. If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.

Tumbles but dont dry


74632 is not a model number. But what you have stated the dryer probably has a bad thermal switch. Cost around $6-8. Unplug dryer, remove back, with a tester test everything that has wires hooked to it. Test from one side to the other to see if power goes through, if not replace that part. They are small round or small rectangle with two wires connected to them. Check the one one the duct first, this one usually goes bad. Vacuum out all lint out of dryer and hose to exterior, excess lint will cause dryer to heat up and blow this part.

My white knight tumble dryer does not heat up,tried pressing the reset button but still does not heat up


you have a heating element burnt out. You will need to remove the back of the dryer and in the bottom of the dryer casing you will see the element Looks like a toaster element. Take model and serial # to an appliance parts house for replacement. An appliance tech shouldn't charge you that much to repair if you dont want to do it yourself.

Good luck hope this helped you some

My tumble drier dont heat up. It works but its


there will be a red overheat switch on the rear on most models, simply pull the machine out and press reset, the most cpmmon cause is running when empty or a build up of lint. if the doesnt work then it will be an open circuit element.
