Beko washer/dryer WDR 7543121W does not dry

Recommended Posts

Beko washer/dryer WDR 7543121W product code 7161541500 does not dry. 

The element that fits in the bottom of the drum has been replaced but this only heats the water during the wash cycle.

Is there another element for the drying cycle?

If so, where is it located on the machine? 

Or could there be another cause?

Any help you are able to give will be gratefully appreciated.

Yes the element in the drum is only for wash. Just replacing parts and hoping it will fix the fault can be very expensive and time wasting. I have a specific article on this fault here - Washer dryer not heating on dry cycle but it may be cheaper in the long run to get an engineer in unless you can definitely identify the fault including ruling out possible causes of the fault. For example a TOC or stat could be the cause of the heating element not working, but that could be simply because the part has gone faulty - or another issue such as a blockage or fan failure could have caused it to overheat and blow.

@Whitegoodshelp (Andy) You're an absolute legend, your post pointed me in the direction of the TOC (hermal Overload Cutout). Tested it and saw it was overloading that had caused the cutout and so have reset and modified our washing behaviour! Thank you so much, as it's saved us an engineer visit or me trying to replace a heating element!
