That capacitor does not control the heater. With that in mind, it does control the motor and the motor not spinning at the right speed will cause the air flow to be reduced. This will cause the heating unit to become too hot.

SOURCE: Defy Tumble dryer not heating

Is this an electric dryer? If so, the most common problem would be a burned-out heating element. There could also be a defective temperature sensor inside. This will need to be evaluated by a qualified appliance repair technician to find the exact cause.

SOURCE: Condensing tumble dryer not running

has the belt shredded and wrapped itself around the shaft? try to manually rotate the drum to see if the belt is free and the motor shaft moves. it sounds like the motor is stuck and the smell is the uncirculated heat at the back. let me know your results.
taking the lid off will gain access.

Where do I find the capacitor in a defy tumbledrier model DTD242


Capacitors are used on the motors to add additional starting torque. If your dryer has a cap, it will be on or near the motor. Dryer electrical elements do not have caps: they are resistive.

Tumble dryer not getting hot


Likely to be a thermostat or heater element problem.
These are located at the rear of the dryer, behind a removeable cover, but you will need a test meter to check them out.
Hope this helps.

Maytag dryer runs and tumbles but will not heat up to dry clothes. model # LDG7500AAW, serial # A3351803. it does have flame but will not stay hot. Is this a thermostat problem?


I would suspect a faulty high limit thermostat is causing this problem. It is usually a small round, black device mounted on a small plate and attached to the internal ductwork with two screws. Hope this helped and best wishes.

A tumble dryer that isn't heating up at all needs checking with a continuity test meter. The most common cause is a heating element failure, or t.o.c's going open circuit. It depends on which make and model of tumble dryer you have as to how easy it is to get to the relevant parts. Some tumble dryers have heating elements that are easily accessible by removing the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious breakage. Others though have their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down. Tumble dryer heating elements are always protected by thermal fuses which are usually simple devices with 2 wires connected. They can be tested for continuity with a test meter
or
If power is getting to the tumble dryer and the socket is definitely OK, then the most common problem with tumble dryers not working is when the door micro switch fails, or the catch on the door that operates the switch either breaks or no longer activates the door switch. Check for broken door catches. There is usually a plastic peg on the door that pushes through a hole in the tumble dryer's casing where the door catch is. Closing the door should operate a simple micro switch. If the plastic peg is broken or bent it might not operate the switch properly

Kenmore dryer. 80 series. 6 years old.


There is no reset button on these thermofuses unfortunatly. Sometimes you can have a timer go out and cause a fault in the thermostats, thermofuses, etc. Doesnt happen to often, but it does happen. Be sure before you spend a lot of money, that you thoughly clean and check you dryer vent tubes or pipe. A clogged vent tube will normally cause major league problems (i.e. burned thermofuses, busted elements, out-of-temp thermostats, slow or no drying conditions, etc.). You can replace these yourself pretty easy if you have some hand tools (call Sears to fix and you can buy a new one) and a couple of minutes. Let me know if you want further instructions or help. Good Luck!!!! JIm
