My tumble dryer is blowing cold air only. I had a new thermostat put in between 1 and 2 years ago, so hoping it's not that and something else. Can you help me please?

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

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.

Tumble dryer isblowing cold air only?


Your dryer is called smart dryer and in this case should have to generate familiy code E60 (or any of exactly fault code E61,62,63,64,65,66,67) if blowing cold air, as you explain. Means something is wrong with heating phase (drying).
So, in this case could be: Heater unit faulty; Wiring faulty; NTC sensor faulty/out of position; Electronic board faulty;
Thermostat faulty; and finally fun motor - but considering that it blows cool air I guess that is correct.

Simpson Dryer only blows cold air


It's either the fuse, heating element, thermal cut-off or thermostat

Blowing cold air out.


Sounds like the thermostat is broken, either that or the heating elements has gone.
There's not much else it CAN be, to be honest.
Maybe you just need a new tumble dryer. If you're on a budget don't forget you can get those "small" half size ones remarkably cheaply and they do a good job.
If a tumble dryer's more than a few years old they are seldom worth repairing. Don't let anyone other than a qualified repair man mess about with it, remember they can be a significant fire risk if they go wrong.
It's probably the heating element if it's an electric dryer.

I have a indesit is31vu tumble dryer and it started to blow cold air i think it must be the thermostat hust wondered is it easy to change or am i better off buying new one?


There is more than 1 thermostat, and it could be the element.
TThe parts are located at the rear of the dryer behind a removeable panel.
You need a meter to test them with.
Hope this helps.

Hotpoint tumble dryer condenser


have you clean the whole dryer air duct?. try cleaning all the walls for lints and check the blower wheel. it could be filty with lint and decreases the airflow there by increasing the temperature too much to blow those limit fuses. you would not believe how much dirt and lint we collect on those ducts. check also the exhaust hose at the back, it could hinder the flow of air if its dirty. and too many turns. as much as possible, limit the turns of the hose.

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.
