Heat level in dryer


A dryer usually overheats because of a kink or blockage in the duct work, blockage in the outside wall cap, or because of a defective cycling thermostat. The cycling thermostat tells the dryer when to heat and not to heat. Clean any lint from the inner and outer ductwork. You can also remove the vent from the back of the dryer for a load or two to determine if the clothes dry faster or not. If this doesn't fix it, go ahead and replace the cycling thermostat. Make sure to use the appropriate setting to dry the clothes.

DRYER HAS NO HEAT. TUMBLER TURNS OK. LINT FILTER CLEAN.


Make sure the dryer exhaust tube is clear of lint and not kinked. Next thing I would check are the thermal fuse and thermostat. Check this out: http://removeandreplace.com/2013/09/21/fix-clothes-dryer-heating-drying-clothing/

Dryer air heats up but does not dry the clothes. Just replaced the timer but did not fix the problem. Air vents are cleared.


One of two possiblities:

1. Dryer vent is blocked - check the air coming through the outside vent
2. Blower Fan is clogged - remove the lower front panel and clean out the fan wheel

Hi I am trying to clean my drain unsder my washer. I do not know how to pull the cover off.?? It appears I need special alan wrenchs for two little screws..?? any ideas??


Though the idea of repairing a clothes dryer can be pretty intimidating, the truth is that some types of repairs are surprisingly easy. Yes, dryers appear to be built like huge, impervious metal boxes, but they are typically pretty easy to open and relatively simple to fix.


As shown at How Clothes Dryers Works, a clothes dryer has a motor that turns a big drum containing the clothes, a heat source for blowing warm air into the drum to dry the clothes, and controls for operating the motor and heat source.
Some dryers have an electric element to do the heating while others utilize a gas flame; the latter must be vented.
Clothes dryer problems generally occur because the heat source doesn't heat properly or the motor fails to turn the drum.
If a gas dryer doesn't dry properly, the first thing to check is the pilot light or igniter--it may not be lighting the burner. The second thing to check is the dryer's vent-if it is clogged with lint, the heating system won't work properly.

Pay attention to basic safety measures when working on a dryer. Always unplug the dryer, and turn off the gas supply to a gas dryer at the appliance shutoff valve.
As with most appliances, maintenance will keep your dryer purring. Clean the lint trap after every load, and clean the vent system once a year.

Dryer heats &revolves but clothes do not dry


  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

  • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.
if this helps please vote me a fix ya
