    After our tumble dryer stopped heating up I feared the worst and thought we were going to have to fork out for a new machine. However thanks to espares not only were we able to repair the dryer ourselves but at a fantastic price. Their service was second to none with a speedy delivery service meaning we were able to use the dryer within 24 hours of ordering the parts
  • So far so good ...

    Received safe & sound in good packaging. Having seen the instructional video, expected a thermostat wiring guide as quoted, but none included. Took the tumble dryer panels off to reveal the thermostats, as shown in video, but not the side panel as that wasn't needed unless changing the heating element too, which I wasn't. One new thermostat was marked with a green dot, and the other new one was maybe yellow. The first old one I took off, had a green dot on it, so replaced it with the similar green dotted thermostat. Guessed that as the green dot was at the bottom, that was the right way round, and replaced the wires accordingly. The other old one was burnt out and blackened with smoke, so put the new one in not knowing which way round it should go (gasp), and wired up as before. Putting everything back together in reverse order as shown on video was the easy part. Turned it on, and all OK (so far), and have used at least 6 times since fitting at different temperatures.

    After watching the You Tube video about tumble driers not heating up, I ordered replacement thermostats which arrived quickly. I just replaced the hot thermostat very easily and the drier works fine again.

      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.
