Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi Craig,My name is ***** ***** I will help with your question. Please could you send me the model number of the dryer?
Hi Craig,When you start the dryer can you hear the motor spinning? Are you planning to repair the dryer yourself?The first thing I would check is the belt is still intact, then I would look at the motor brushes to see if they are worn.
If the dryer spins and gets warm but shuts off. It is quite likely it is ntc thermostat but it could also be a few other things.I would start with checking all connections on the PCB they should not have come loose but I have known it in the past. I would also remove as much fluff from inside the machine as possible driers often get a lot of fluff buildup inside the machine.Does the dryer display a fault code?The NTC is available here https://shop.ukwhitegoods.co.uk/154166-tumble-dryer-thermostat-sensor
Sorry a reply I sent you earlier does not seem to have sent correctly. Do you have a multimeter?
I agree after you said it does not get hot that was my thought. I asked if you had a multimeter so you could test the element and the thermal cutout.You may be able to see if it is the element by looking at it sometime the elements are broken or look burnt. Near the element should be a thermal cutout or more than one, sometime these are re settable by pressing a little switch on them. If these have broken the element will fail to work.
