    my dryer is doing the same thing running but no heat. So you say it probably is not the breaker? Would it be the 220 outlet? Or a new 220 plug? Thank you so much

If your home has fuses, one of the 30 amp fuses may be blown. If breakers, not as likely you have a bad breaker, but possible. Check voltage at main electrical distribution pannel. Look for loose connections.

The dryer runs just doesn't get hot. is it the heating element or is there a fuse somewhere?


More than likely the heater element has failed. typically there are no fuses for this application. Also, be sure that you have 220 volts at plug receptacle outlet, you may only have 110 volts feeding dryer and it requires 220 volts for heating unit and all other operations of the dryer. Hope this helps to answer your question.

My 70 series dryer the heating element is not working. I checked the heating coil for continuity and it is holding 12 ohms, the fuse has continuity and it has power. Flipped the breaker to se If that was...


your voltage is not right as it should be 220 volts, check the outlet to see if you have 220 if you do then its the cord, if not then it is either the outlet or the breaker-panel, to check panel remove panel and test both legs of the breaker you should have 220 if not then replace the 30 amp breaker.

My drier 110 volts was accidentally plugged to 220


The least of your problems would be a burnt out relay or internal switch which can be replaced at reasonable expense. In a worst case the motor or heating element "fried" and it'll be cheaper to buy a new dryer.
BTW 110 and 220 plugs are entirely different and a 110 plug cannot be plugged into a 220 outlet.

Dryer will not start door is closed


Carefully check your 220 outlet. You can check a 220 buy a volt meter. Make sure your volt meter is set over 220 range and put the red lead into the slot and black lead into the L shape. It could be you are not getting 220 power out of your outlet. We all know on a 220 outlet both legs have 110 on each side. A dryer takes 110 for the motor, and takes 110 for elements.

A diagram of how to wire a 220 volt outlet from two 110 volt outlets.


You can't really do that. The two 110 outlets probably come for the same 'leg' of the 240. If you check them with a meter, there will be '0' volts between the two hot wires. So, they have the same 'potential'. You need a regular 240 volt circuit from a double pole breaker that is rated for the wire size that it's feeding. 20 amp-#12 ; 30 amp- #10 etc.

    You need to check for 220 volts at outlet.  It's possible to have only 1 110 volt circuit.  May be a bad breaker. or outlet.  If you have 220 volts at outlet,  you need to have an ohm meter to check continuity of the thermal fuses and the heater.   Access by removing rear panel.  UNPLUG FIRST!!!!!
