Whirlpool or Kenmore Dryer Does Not Heat


First , check the circuit breaker to make sure they are on . Be sure to UNPLUG the dryer , while checking with an ohm meter . When checking WITH power , BEST to have another person available in case of emergency . I do know of 1 person killed while working on his dryer .
A dryer operating on 240 volts , sends 120 volts to the timer and 120 volts to the motor . In between these two , are the thermal cut-off , and the element ( this is the basic operation parts ) . The 120 volts from the motor , goes directly to the element if selected for heat . The timer circuit , sends the other 120 volts , thru the operating thermostats , then thermal fuse , then thermal cut-off , then high-limit thermostat , then to the element . Usually , not ALL the time , the thermal fuse ( number 1 ) is the problem . The heating element ( number 2 ) is usually the problem , if the thermal fuse is good .
If the thermostats , element , and thermal fuse check good with an ohm meter , remove 1 wire from the element and check with a meter , which side is NOT getting 120 volts . Trace the wire which will either go to the timer ( occasionally ) or to the motor ( extremely rare ) .


On a gas dryer , for no heat , or , heats for a short time then runs but no heat afterwords until cooled down , first check that the electronic igniter , glows red . If it does NOT glow red , then check power to the burner ( 2 wires ) . If no power , then the thermal fuse is bad . (On electric dryers , the thermal fuse keeps the dryer from starting . On gas dryers , it keeps the dryer from heating . The thermal fuse , is a 1" long , or oval , white piece , with 2 wires going to it ) . Also if it does not glow red , the igniter itself could be bad . Again , check with an ohm meter . If the igniter glows red and clicks off , but no gas , the sensor could be bad . This sensor , is mounted to the side of the burner box , and when the igniter gets hot enough to ignite the gas , the sensor opens , sending power to the coils , which open dispensing the gas to heat the dryer . To check the sensor , with the drum removed , start the dryer , and after the igniter gets red , pull one of the wires OFF the sensor , and the gas should ignite . Do this very carefully , as electricity WILL be in the wire pulled off . If the dryer heats for a short time then stops heating , the problem will be the burner coils . These coils will get warm from the electricity going thru them , and will " open " ( short ) internally , until they cool down . Then heat again for a short time , then open , until cooled .
Most of the time , either the thermal fuse ( 1 ) or the coils are bad ( 2 ) or the igniter is bad ( 3 ) .

........A thermal fuse is a white 1" long torpedo looking piece , or , a white oval shaped piece , with 2 wires going to it .

NOTE1 : The thermal fuse keeps an electric dryer from starting and keeps a gas dryer from heating .

NOTE2 : If your dryer heats but the clothes do not dry , then a venting problem is obvious , as a dryer either heats or doesn't heat . Pull the dryer out and disconnect the vent from the dryer . Dry a load of clothes and if/when they dry in the normal amount of time , this tells you either the vent hose is kinked , maybe pushed back too far , or , the outside vent is blocked , or , the vent in the wall is restricted to the outside .

Electric Dryers

NOTE3 : If your lint screen is on top of the dryer , the element , thermal fuse , and thermostats are behind the rear dryer panel ....If the lint screen is behind the dryer door , then the element , thermal fuse ( located behind the lint screen housing ( 2 screws ) , and thermostats , are located behind the lower front panel .

Maxx heater lights all burners for aprox 20 sec blower fan starts flame goes out flame lights again for 20 sec never blows much heat ?

sounds like its not getting gas fast enough to keep burning,that happen to me and the gas line was to long of a run for enough gas keep coming. so I up the pipe runs real good the flame keeps burning, so you know you can only go 25 ft in half inch pipe then u lose your flame

Hi would heated grips added to a honda transalp 600 cause the batterie to boil.thanks

No--but.... Heated grips will only put an added load on a battery, and that won't cause boiling of a battery. What WILL cause a battery to boil is overcharging or charging at too fast a rate. Now, then--when you add heated grips to the bike and you make a mistake somewhere in the wiring, you can affect the charging rate, and it's possible that a voltage regulator/charging system sees more current being drawn than it's used to and it's trying to replace that current as well as charge the battery, and it's feeding a higher voltage/current to the battery than was intended by the designers. You can check this out--put a voltmeter on the battery terminals, run the engine, and turn on your heated grips. A normal charging voltage for a vented lead acid battery should be about 13.8 to 14.4 volts; yours may go a little higher. If you're seeing a lot higher than 14.4 volts, you either have a defective voltage regulator or perhaps such a bad battery that it's screwing up your charging circuit.

Alternator not charging battery

voltage regulator, it may be internal in the alternator, if so then you can get a bad one, take alternator off and autozone or advance auto will test it for free. if it is external then it shld be fairly easy to replace note:if its external it usually has a cable running from the battery, and another cable running to either the fusebax or alternator itself

Your regulator should be controlling your volts to 13.4 any thing more than that is not good ,put a D/C test across the battery and hold at 1000 revs you should not exceed 13.4 volts anything higher ,throw it away and purchase a new one .

Monitor black but power light blink green

The 470uF 25 Volts capacitors on the power supply board are probably bad. Replace them all and tell us the result !

Dryer runs then stops after short periods (5-10 mins)

THere maybe a thermal limit sensor gone bad. Keeps the dryer from over-heating. Located behind rear panel on most and mounted on the heat tube. Verify with volt/ohm meter if possible

No Heat

first check to see if you have 229 volts at the plug. then take the rear cover off or pop the top with a thin butter knife. there will be access inside or out they are all differant. once you find it use a ohm meter or a self made test light with a d size battery 2 wires and a 1 1\2 volt bulb. build your light and make the heating element will close the circut if it dont light its bad. BE SURE TO PULL THE PLUG BEFORE TESTING ANY THING. 220 VOLTS CAN AND WILL KILL YOU. YOU CAN DO THIS EASY REPAIR. THERE ARE 2 HEAT SENCERS YOU MIGHT HAVE TO HEAT UP WITH A CIG-LIGHTER. GO FOR IT GOOD LUCK SAW
