It just stopped heating yesterday, it still tumbles but is just not heating up.
There is no reset button and there is no lint stuck anywhere.
What can i do?

Oh I was going to suggest clearing the filter. That's what I tell DH to do when mine stops heating. grin

cost me about £50 to fix some element thing or other that had gone when mine did this. funnily enough it happened just after dh left about 8 kg of washing on tumble dry for 2 hours

It's the fan probably. Ours is the same and we are waiting for the engineer to come back and fit it. He didn't understand why the machine hadn't cut out.

We felt the top of the machine once it had been pulled out and it was HOT!! It had melted the plastic trim around the top.
