Thanks, ***** ***** does not dry it means the heater element for this dryer has failed and will need replacement ... a new one will cost £75 + labor... you can check the dryer and thermostat with a multimeter for continuity... no continuity means the element has to be replaced

when we open it up its steaming, so the element must be doing something or it would be cold.
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 1 year ago.

yes correct but as it fails regularly so it is either the element and/or the thermostat

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
why would it work on a different cycle if the element was done like a say it's always steaming when we open it sounds like it might be worth trying thermostat first

What do you think
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 1 year ago.

Sorry was away ... yes if you can test the thermostat or you can just replace it... usually when heater is replaced the thermostat should be replaced with that as well
