    With the help of Josh video (espares) traced the fault to the Heater element/Thermostats. Although readings were all correct, blowing the house main breaker brought the fault down to these parts. Replaced, gave the Proline Tumble Dryer a good overhaul and all restored to new condition. Thank you espares.

    When your daughter rings and says Dad the dryer isn't getting hot this is my first place of call. Within minutes I find out what the problem is and watch a video of how easy it is to fit. Within a couple of days I have a happy daughter. Being disabled it took me about 20 minutes to install but it was very easy. Once again Espares has come to the rescue!

    Faced with a choice of a new dryer, an expensive call out with two visits or Espares with a training video the latter proved the right choice for by far the lowest cost. Simple, effective service, much appreciated.

      Before buying a new tumble dryer element, try resetting the thermostat on the one you have. To do this, unscrew the cover on the back of the tumble dryer, then remove the two screws holding the element to the cover. Look at the "black" (rather than the silver) side of the thermostat. One of the two "buttons" has a small hole in it. Insert a pin in the hole and push down. If you hear a "click", then the thermostat has been reset. Re-attach the element to the cover and the cover to the dryer. The dryer should now blow hot air when operating.

  • Q I have a hotpoint aquarius drier that won't heat up 1 Answer

    I know what caused the problem, it was a bra bone that got caught in the drum, the drum goes round smoothly but the air is very cold. Hubby took the back off and had a look but all he said was that the elements had an awful lot of fluff on them and he says we need new elements, Do we??? would appreciate any advice thank you

  • Q my dryer is getting hot all over when in use, not just warm but hot, what could this be? 1 Answer

    ive got a hotpoint tvm570, ive recently replaced the drum bearing due to the noise it was making, that all went well and now theres no noise, the dryer is still drying clothes, and I hovered it all out when I replaced the other part but not the whole dryer seems to be getting really hot when in use?? I have no idea why, so was wondering if anyone had any ideas what this could be thanks.

      There is no insulation for the drum and heat will build inside the dryer. However if the air flow is restricted by fluff in the filter or condenser or a blocked vent pipe all the heat and air will be forced into the case from around the drum seal. Check the air ways and pipes are clear and the seals to the drum at the back and front are both in good order. if they are the heat may just be normal.

  • Q I have a indesit condenser dryer idc75(uk). I have just changed the heating elements and thermostats and all worked fine for two days, however the water light has come on and the water tray is empty also it's blowing cold air. What can be the problem 1 Answer

      Water is not being removed from the reservoir at the back and the float switch has turned the heater off to prevent flooding. Check the pump (Stock Number: ES1024993) and for blockages to the container.

  • Q internal fuse? 1 Answer

    i just replaced the stat and element on my hotpoint vtd00 but it's still not heating. i've checked all wires etc and everything else seems fine but i'm wondering if theres an internal fuse/switch i need to reset? the belt had gone when i inherited the machine so i wonder if it'd overheated before due to not spinning and needs resetting somehow?

      This dryer will only heat if the timer is set to over ten minutes as the last ten it turns cooling and removing the heat from the drum. There are no other cut outs or thermostats but if stopped hot it can trip out the thermostat as the heat is not disbursed by the fan.
