Defy Autodry 252

Hi. I have a defy tumble dryer from South Africa. Firstly I cant get parts here in Australia. secondly I cant get it repaired at a reasonable cost after sourcing the parts from SA.
My problem is, the belt that runs around the drum had cut. I managed to buy 1 from SA and bring it over. My hubi put the new belt on and it worked for abt 10 mins and then it started to blow just cold air after that. we went to a repair company here, they tested the element and said its blown, and they dont have the same size so we must get it from SA and they will fix it. We bought the new element and now we find out the element is not the problem.
What could be the problem? Why is it only blowing cold air?

SOURCE: Defy dryer, not heating

Check that you have 220v first. Your dryer will work on 110V but will not dry. You need to check all thermostats with a ohm meter (be sure to unplug dryer), they should be 2 ohms or less. Set ohm meter to 1x. If they are good go to heating element (your ohm meter should be on 1X as wel. You need to check to make sure you have continuity (however, this does not mean that it is not bad). You need to take it out and visually inspect it to make sure it has no breaks in the coil. If it does you can buy a rewire kit for runder 30 bucks for most models.

I have a defy autodry tumble dryer - about 5 years old. In good working order, but a few days ago when I pushed the on/off switch in to put the tumble dryer on, it went all the way in. It still works...


I have not personally seen one but in most cases with washers and dryers, access at the rear, removing a few screws might loosen the top from the back panel and that might allow the top to be pry open. The top is usually held in place with clips rather than screws...same as door panel in cars are held flush against the body of the car with clips. I would try removing the top by way of the back. Just a guess.

I've bought a Defy Autodry tumble dryer, but the black "rubber" on the door keeps coming out, which then pushes the door open, and the machine then automatically stopped. Can i just replace...


A TUBE OF CONTACT CEMENT WORKS WONDERS ON THE SEALING RUBBER - JUST FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE TUBE . IF ITS GOOD ENOUGH FOR DOOR SEALS IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY ITS GOOD ENOUGH TO HOLD YOUR DOOR SEAL IN PLACE - GOOD LUCK.

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?

Defy Tumble dryer not heating


Is this an electric dryer? If so, the most common problem would be a burned-out heating element. There could also be a defective temperature sensor inside. This will need to be evaluated by a qualified appliance repair technician to find the exact cause.
