Not heating up

Check the filter is clean

There is a fluff filter situated in the door entrance of your dryer. For best results clean this before you start using your dryer. If it becomes blocked with fluff the machine will not heat up. Open the door and lift the filter out. Gently pull the sides to open it out and scrape out the fluff build up.

Check the vent hose is not blocked or kinked

The air escapes from the dryer through a vent hose. This is the white corrugated pipe attached to your machine. If this becomes blocked or kinked the air can't escape and the dyer will not heat up. Pull the machine forward and disconnect the hose. Have a look to see if it is clogged up with fluff and make sure it is not trapped or kinked when the machine is put back. If it goes out through a hole in the wall it is a good idea to go outside the property and check the venting arrangement outside. If this vent is blocked or clogged or obstructed by something, the air can't escape and the machine will be unable to vent properly.
