Hello all, After following these excellent instructions from @bob12241 and @jonboyuk, I have tested the D7 diode (faulty) and will be replacing it to try to get my Beko WDIR7543101 going again. At the same time, I thought i'd have a go at fixing the long-standing problem with the dryer and was hoping for some help. The issue is that it cuts out after a few minutes of running. I've not used it in over a year now but since I had the machine open and multimeter in hand, here's the readings I got from testing the following parts: A. Element: 39.8 ohms B. Thermostat/Cutout 1: 0.01 ohms C: Thermostat/Cutout 2: 0.01 ohms D: Motor: 46.1 ohms These readings all seem fine, so I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions please and whether or not (see pics attached): -It's worth trying to take out the condenser and clean it, as it looks like it is quite dirty on the inside? If so, does anyone know how to do this please? -It's worth trying to get to the fan to clean it? The small motor cooling fan does spin freely when I use my finger. I did try to remove all the screws on the top cover of the fan/heating box but there was no movement of the cover. It's almost as if it is glued down? Thanks in advance for any replies, Circuital
