when you say reset, do you mean the little button at the back?
#2
it's more than likely either the thermostat or heater element gone
both are changable
if you do it yourself or a friend changes them for you, it will cost around £40 max
or if you have to call out an engineer to fix it your probably goign to be better off buying a new one

depends on model-mine was the element-repair man-free-told me and quoted £45 so i bought one from a local spares shop £12 and fitted it myself 5 minutes job(and im a woman and NOT technical!)

def sounds like the heater element to me, dependent upon the model they can be a bit of a ****** to fit. New driers are available for about £100, so that may be the simplest and safest bet :thumbsup:

If you buy the spares check something like Quidco as some of the spares companies give good percentages

ok get the paper and cal out a no callout repair man. He will tell you whats wrong-make sure you have a look what hes doing-and then buy the part. Ok not ethical but if you really cant afford a new one:whistling:

A drier that age would probably be uneconomical to repair, if its had enough use to kill the heating element the motor may be next, its probably the start of a downward slope, its had a good life put it to rest and buy a new one.

Try looking in the flexible pipe where the condensation leaves the drier, the same thing happened to mine and when the man came out to repair it he pulled about three hand fulls of fluff out of it.
