Ok thanks for that. If the heater on the back and the thermostats on there are ok then its possibley either the front thermostat or the timer itself.

If you remove the top of the dryer and look down the front on the inside you will see 2 wires going into the plastic frame. This is the front thermostat. You need to test this with a multi meter and see if its faulty or not. If its open circuit then it will need to be replaced.

If that thermostat is fine then its going to be the timer on there at fault. As theres only a few things that can cause a heating fault. Either the thermostats or heater at back, Front thermostat or the timer.

So check them out and see what you find. If you need anymore info just get back to me.
