Hi, we had the same problem with a WD420P. After a washing machine repair man plugged in the diagnostic machine and found that there was no fault, my boyfriend had a look. The nut securing the cooling fan inside the heater element was not tight so the heater overheated and tripped it's stat. This was a 5 month old part fitted after the original was replaced under warranty.

Hi, I also had an Aquarius 1200 with the same problem but the solution was different. I removed the top and found that the heater was working OK (i could even feel the heat through the top but the clothes did not dry) Checked both elements and both read around 68 Ohms. Problem was the evaporator motor (top left when standing at front of machine) - one of the wires had broken at the snap connector and the motor was not working. I re-made the connection and it now works ok. If the heater is not working you could also check the thermal cut-out (the round one nearest the front on mine) - It should have 240 volts on both sides when the heater is cool (below the cut-off temp.). As previously advised - switch off and unplug the machine before doing anything. Only do checks on a live machine if you are competent and comfortable with this type of work.

Hi, I have a Hotpoint WD640 myself and funnily enough I have the same problem. Knowing a tiny bit about washing machines you will probably find that your heating element from the dryer has stopped working. If you can still wash clothes that means that your other heating element for the washing is fine and that your thermostat for the machine is also working. If you need to buy a dryer component may I suggest 4hotpoint.co.uk, I have just bought an element from them and it cost me £27.99 including tax and P&P. May I also suggest that you get a suitably qualified or competant (not saying that you are not) person to fit the element for you as you do not want anything to go wrong with your washing machine. Hope this helps :o)

NO Heat ,when in Drying Cycle. Drying cycle works, but with no heat.Does not dry clothes.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things: Mainly Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If that’s fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Thor laundry system won't dry clothes I have a thor no venting washer/dryer combo machine, that has been working fine for years. Suddenly it is not drying clothes and instead, clothes are soaking wet...

I am having the same problem on a WD9900A. The wash cycle works great. Spins fast and clothes are completely rung out. Dryer cycle heats up well. Fluffs and heats cloths. At some point during dry cycle water is injected on clothes and they end up sopping wet; much wetter than after wash. Filter is clear. Outlet pipe clear and functions well. Possible problem with dryer timer? Or washer timing kicking back on?

Washer-dryer # wm3677HW will not dry,heats up, run, on and on

You're a moron. This unit washes and dries. That's the whole point of it. Perhaps you should do some research before answering the question. the most likely cause is the water lever sensor.

Smeg wdf1 washer dryer not drying clothes. Wash cycle fine but no heat produced when drying- any idea where to find/check the fuses/elements?

Hi, Take the top cover off and click the little red button on the thermostat/overload (small black box). Then try again. Sometimes these trip out as a safety precaution.

Where do i Find the heating element on my wd640 washer dryer

on top of the drum there is a metal dryer box. the heating element is connected by 2 wires.
it maybe that a build up of lint has tripped your thermal wire out or the thermistor,(you will have to test the continuity).
