    This is an easy installation and definitely worth trying if your tumble dryer stopped working (mine was a Creda). Video instructions on eSpare website were spot on. Saved myself having to buy a new Dryer but only replaced thermostats. Not sure would have bothered with heating element.

    I had no heater in my tumble dryer. I ordered a replacement heater element and it was delivered promptly. Great service. Unfortunately I should have read the blogs and I should have ordered thermostats first as this is the most common fault. I ordered these from espares and again the parts were delivered promptly. The help video made the job simple and everything is working again fine

      Actually there are two, a complete set, in each pack. I ordered two packs after seeing the original answer and end up with four stats! One pack will be going back...

  • Q Do you need to replace element ?? 1 Answer

    Tumble dryer not heating up am about to replace thermostats do you have to replace the element at the same time or is there anyway of testing it ? Water light is staying on even after emptying

      Check the thermostats measure short circuit, if not replace them and reassemble the dryer before switching on. If the dryer is stopped 'when hot' it can trip and stop heating so allow to run the cool down cycle if the dryer has been run for a few minutes.

  • Q Switched off tumble dryer mid cycle by mains switch(by mistake) since then no heat is available the water light is on but the water container is empty is this a thermostat problem or could it be something else 1 Answer

    By Beaker - York - 13 December 2013

      Yes this is a common problem if the dryer is hot and the air flow is stopped then these thermostats will cut out. If you measure them with a meter they should read short circuit, replace if this is not the case.

  • Q hi. is there any way of testing the thermostat? 1 Answer

    just wondering if theres a way to check if the thermostats are broken or its a heater element fault before deciding whether or not its worth fixing the machine

      the thermostat should read less than 1 ohm if measured with a multimeter. You can see this in our video: How to use a multimeter
