SOURCE: WHIRLPOOL AWZ2303 TUMBLE DRYER ONLY BLOWS COLD

It's call a bad thermal cut-out. You should have a thermal cut-out and a high limit thermostat located adjacent to the heating element (usually mounted right on the heating element housing). They both should read a short or fairly low resistance in the case of the thermostat. If the thermal cut-out is blown it is not a resettable device and must be replaced. The tco is usually sold along with the high limit thermostat. It is HIGHLY recommended that you replace BOTH at the same time. DO NOT attempt to bypass any of these devices either. They are there as safety devices to prevent overheating. You could end up with a fire if you do. Now...with all that said, the tco will blow for a reason. Not cleaning the lint trap will contribute to it, but the big item is the ducting. If the vent ducting is clogged you will experience longer dry times and eventually the tco will trip again. Take the time to THOROUGHLY clean and/or replace your vent ducting from the wall all the way to the vent opening outside. In addition, while you have the dryer open THOROUGHLY clean the inside as well. This includes the air baffle where the blower fan is located. Rule of thumb: if you have lint INSIDE the dryer, it's clogged somewhere. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry

I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.

SOURCE: hoover tumble dryer filter light staying on and

if you have cleaned your filter at the door and checked the outlet is not blocked either then it will most likely be the heater element on the back of the machine, it has three parts to it, 1 thermal switch,2 is some sort of magnetic type switch and 3rd is the element its self,

problem is its only sold as one unit, but very easy to replace.

How do i fix a tumble dryer blowing cold air


When you have to put this question here, I don't think it is wise to try to repair it yourself. It can be caused by lots of different things, Like a defective heater, a lose connection or a defect thermostat. When your dryer does not have an overheating security switch that came out and you can't reset it, a skilled technician should see into the dryer. It works with voltages, to dangerous to work with, when you don't know what you are doing. Please be careful.

Hi,

It seems that it is more likely a Burned Out Heating Element.

Check and let me know if the problem still persists.

Hope i helped you.

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.
