Power light is on as is Drum light.Dryer is approx 20years old

Hi Vic thank you for the reply.
This sounds like a bad motor.
The best place to try for this part is Espares: phone 0844 9777 888.
The motor can be replaced pretty easily if you are a bit handy.
I will help you as well;-)
Have a great day.

How Certain are you that its the motor and not a thermostat for instance

HI Vic, you could check that with a lest light but the fishy smell would usually indicate the motor;-)
I'm here if you need me.
