    Hi, My Candy Grand O Vita condenser tumble
    dryer (model: GVS C10DE-80) is giving error E21. I have cleaned the condenser and left it dry and also left the machine unplugged for ages. I could not find a service manual online . I have an electrical background so I have no problem checking stuff. I just need to know what to check and where it is located inside the dryer. The dryer is 13 months old.
