Can be the bimetal type which comes in series with the main wire. So if you can trace the main line through the switch and to the coil, the cut off can be in this section.
Since you have confirmed the coils to be good it will be just to trace the leads from the coil backwards. Use a coninuity tester fromt he main power to the coils on swithc on and the missing link canbe easily traced as you trail the wire

My Zanussi TC7102S is not getting hot. It works but cold Air

Hi lorrainelkno...

Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
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/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. 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 one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If you have an ohm meter then you can test the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse,
then you do not have to tape the wires together as described above.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse as it is faulty.

If the thermal fuse overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

My dryer is not heating up I dont know where to find the condenser. I have a young baby and need a dryer as soon as possible and would be grateful for any help you can give. Many thanks Deb

Hi, There is no condenser in this model of machine its an open vent machine so you will not find any water container etc.

For the reason above it sounds like your heating element may be faulty and needs replacing, you can try emptying the fluff filters and making sure that the exhast vent in not blocked or obstructed in any way, I have included a link ---> HERE <--- for the manual that will show you where the fluff filters are located, if this doesn't help then perhaps you will need to call an engineer out to look at it and perhaps replace the element.

Hope this helps.

Zanussi white knight dryer - the dryer is not heating up. i have pressed the red reset button the back but no heat? the drum still rotates.

It is possible the heater element is faulty or a thermostat problem.
You need to test the element and stat's with a meter to check for continuity.

A Kennmore electric dryer, model 697267. Heating element checks out ok. Soninlaw said breakers are ok. Dryer drum turns but no heat? I'm 640 miles away, is there a thermal fuse in the circuit.

Yes there is a thermal fuse and a hi limit switch. The hi limit switch is attached to the heating element casing. You said the heating element checks out If you checked it with an ohm meter and it checked out good. If you checked it visually double check it. The hi limit can be checked with an ohm meter it should show continuity. If you dont have a ohm meter you can jump the wires by connecting them using a paper clip or copper wire. Make sure to tape them with electric tape. The thermal fuse is connected with the Heating element and hi limit by one wire and is located at the bottom back of the dryer and slightly to the right as you face the back of the dryer. It is a small two wire fuse and once it trips you have to replace it you can check it and test it just like the hi limit switch. Be careful and always unplug the dryer before starting any repairs. I hope this help. If you need me to clarify anything just let me know. good luck

Zanussi WJD1667W not drying at all


I've got this machine, and all washer dryers tend to have two heating elements and it sounds to me that the heating element for the drying side of the machine's functions needs replacing. You could probably find a cheap element for the machine somewhere and get it fitted for a small sum.

Let me know if this rectifies your problem
