How do I reset my tumble dryer?
Likewise, do all tumble dryers have a reset button?
In some models this should be easily fixable – some tumble dryers have reset buttons on the back of the machine so all you will need to do is hold in the button and wait for it to click.
Additionally, why does my tumble dryer not heat up? Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
Simply so, does a dryer have a reset button?
Many dryers are equipped with a reset button on the control panel. If the motor won't run, let the dryer cool for about ten minutes. Then push the reset button. If there are no problems with the motor, switches, or electrical system, this should restart the dryer.
How do you fix a dryer?
Replace the bad heating element on an electric dryer by unscrewing the retaining clip at the top of the heater box. Then pull out the box and remove the element retaining screw. Swap the elements and reinstall. If you have an electric or gas dryer that tumbles but won't heat, check the thermal fuse for continuity.
