    Hi, I bought brand new Indesit dryer in October. It has stopped heating the air. I believe I may need to reset something. I have removed the back 2 plates but there was nothing underneath. Any ideas?

    You can reset the stat ,on the top on the heater is two stats one has a pin hole in it. Use a safety pin to reset it.

    The only cover is the rear banjo one. Then u will see the coiled heater. Two screws on the rear will release it. Stats on top of that

    If its not heating test the exhaust stat, heater stat/(s) and heating element.
    Check all vents, filters and hoses are clear.
    If those are all ok it could be a faulty timer or pcb.

    What I don't understand is why Argos advertise this has a 'reservoir full' indicator when it is vented and not a condenser dryer? Perhaps you could confirm, a) vented or condenser and b) does it have a reservoir full light.

    Three stat looking things above heating element, two silver disk, one black plastic one in the middle.

    Tested all for continuity, both sliver disk ones where ok, black plastic one had none, I bypassed this with a link, still no heat.

    I've emailed indesit.

    Edit... Wifey has just told me its now heating....
