Hi, we have a Siemens iQ500 tumble-dryer that has just started

Resolved Question:

Hi, we have a Siemens iQ500 tumble-dryer that has just started not to work. When we select one of the programs and press start, the machine beeps and the program does not start. We have tried various things including: (i) selecting different programs, (ii) switching the dryer off and on again and (iii) holding the start button for a couple of seconds. Could you offer any advice please?

The most common issue is the condenser container is full, if you have a hose leading to the drain check to see if its blocked, by disconnecting it at both ends.
If this gets full or blocked it will prevent other programs starting.
As for any other reason, its most likely to be a non serviceable issue, and require an engineer call out.
Please get in touch should you need anything clarified.
