Also question is, why has my condenser dryer stopped working?
In many cases, if your dryer is not heating it's because the heater fuse has tripped or the thermal overload has cut out. These appliances frequently have mechanisms to prevent them from overheating and catching fire. You can reset these mechanisms yourself simply by pressing a button.
Furthermore, do all tumble dryers have a reset button? In some models this should be easily fixable – some tumble dryers have reset buttons on the back of the machine so all you will need to do is hold in the button and wait for it to click.

How do you know if your dryer motor is bad?
When a dryer motor goes bad, the loud grinding, rumbling from the worn-out bearings makes it seem like the dryer's going to blow up any second. It won't, but fairly soon after the noise starts it will stop dead in its tracks when the bearings seize.
