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.
QSwitched 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 else1 Answer

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.
