    this dryer won't give any heat, what electrial test could I do to fix this problem

  • EpiX Dec 17, 2007

    I have the same problem. I noticed that neither the lights for air dry or heat dry dont work. could there be something wrong with the logic system that operates the heat? Thanks

    My Roper dryer is no longer drying and takes at least 3 to 4 times to dry. Also I just moved and now not only is it not drying properly but it gets stuck in a cycle all day in one spot and doesn't get dry and doesn't stop unless I manually stop the dial or open the dryer door. I know I have a heating element problem obviously but what is causing the latter problem. Maybe if I replace the element that would fix everything I dont know. Thanks, Mad in Modesto.

    Hi I had the same problem. I just paid a $144 service call to fix it. Turns out the thermal overload switch was tripped. Its under a metal plate in the back of the machine. The service man had a proprietary screwdriver (he said Maytag uses the same screws) You can't buy it in the store (I asked). If you can remove the plate, you just reset the switch with your finger. This whole problem happened from failure to remove lint religiously from the screen on the door and underneath, behind the white panel on the bottom. Also maybe too many loads at once, which contributed to the overheating. DON'T LET YOUR FRIENDS USE YOUR DRYER WITHOUT REMOVING THE LINT. ha ha.

Hi there, I have had the exact same problem with my dryer also. Mine is the same model as yours. I did some digging with a borrowed multimeter and I found the problem to be the thermostat that is inside the drum itself. If you can, open the door and position yourself so that you can put your head inside the drum of the dryer with your face towards the ceiling (not easy, I know), you will see a silver coloured button like device fitted to the inside of the front of the drum area above the door opening. Note, this part is not attached to the drum itself, and does not move, but instead it is attached to the front "wall" of the drum. There are two phililps head screws holding this in place. Undo these screws and the retaining piece of circular plastic will come off. You can then get your hands on the thermostat. ( I have enclosed a picture of the item in question). Remove both spade connectors and that is the thermostat removed. (Remember to pull the two pink coloured wires through the hole and maybe tape them to the inside of the drum so that you can get to them later.) You can test the thermostat by checking for continuity between the two spades. Test it first when it is cold, and then dip the "button-like" part of it in hot water until you hear a click, test it again and the result should be different. You should have continuity when it is cold, but not when it is hot. The part ( Part No. 125 84 06-10/5) is reasonably cheap to replace, I got one for 25 Euros, and the dryer has not missed a beat since. Please note that when I rang various suppliers looking for the part, they all told me that it normally does not fail. I was not put off by their attempts to have a service engineer come out to charge me 50 Euro to tell me what I already knew, so be prepared to stand your ground if the above test indicates that this thermostat is to blame. When you get your new part, dont worry about which pink wire went onto which terminal, because it does not matter. It is just a switch really. I hope this is of some use, and perhaps you have already solved your problem, but maybe someone else will get some benefit from all my typing. It took me about an hour! Cheers!

My Use and Care Manual suggests for the problem of "Drying level not reached or drying time too long" to "Clean the Moisture sensors in the drum as described in section titled CARE and CLEANING" which then states: "Occasianally the moisture sensors will need cleaning, due to a build-up of a fine layer of lime scale on the inside of the drum. This build-up of lime scale can be easily removed by wiping the sensors, the metal inserts in the paddles, and the inside of the drum with a soft cloth soaked in vinegar (use white vinegar). See Figure 10." You may want to try the vinegar trick before you start tearing into your unit. I hope it works and good luck, Del

If you still have your instruction manual check to see if there's a cut out or trip switch. If there is, a simple push of the reset button could fix your problem. Check your outlet filter. If it.s clogged with dust and fluff, give it a good clean and replace. Blocked filters can cause the safety device to deactivate the heating element. If all this fails the heating element is easy to remove. Take it to your hardware store and ask them to check it. Obviously if you do have a multimeter and know how to use it you can check it yourself. If not and the hardware shop says it's burnt out then get them to order a new one. Prior to refitting the element give the dryer a good clean out. You'd be amazed at the amount of lint and dust there'll be just waiting to clog the works up again. As usual, always remove the power cable from the wall when working on household items. BMW

Michelle, I'm not famillier with this specific drayer, but I can give you some general direction to solve your problem. Its look like heating element (a simply long coil of special wire) problem. Open rear panel of the dryer and check for heater's resistance (by ohm-meater) Be aware you should do it while drayer power cable is is disconnected !!! In case there is no resistance, you should replace the element. In case you have a resistance meserment: -On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel (in a white plastic house). If the fuse has blown, it should be replaced. - look for no burned wires or bad connections. Good luck!

check to make sure lint trap is clean also make sure exhaust is not clogged. if both are clear than you probably need to replace your heating elements. if this the case than you need to call an appliance repair tech. trying to do it yourself could result in electricution. also make sure your drum is turning.

Hot Point Dryer won't dry, gets hot on top.


An educated guess would be either the lint tube or the tube that exhausts the air outside is blocked with lint----no airflow or greatly reduced flow will cause this symptom.

Takes forever to dry even the smallest load , its has hot air coming out the exhaust and the clothes are warm .


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Sounds like the exhaust fan is not working. There's an electric blower at the back of the unit that forces air out through the exhaust vent. Unplug the unit, pull the vent off the back, and see if you can reach in and touch the fan blades and make them move. If it won't move something is probably caught in there. You may need to take off the back of the unit and remove the housing cover to the fan assembly in order to really tell what's going on, but it sounds like your fan has an obstruction. It could also be that the fan motor is fried but that seems less likely. Remember to have the unit unplugged, there's some dangerous voltage inside.

Have a whirlpool cabrio gas dryer. It takes several hours to dry one load of clothes. The clothes seem to stay damp towels may take all day... what could be the problem


Have you opened the door while its running to see if its warm inside (heater working) If its getting warm and still not drying the clothes properly you likley have a air circulation concern. With the unit running check the exhaust vent outside from dryer it should have a good flow of warm air, if not you have a restriction sowher between the unit and outside. Heat alone will take forever to dry clothing,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture from the clothes otherwise all you will end up with is warm moist clothing.This generaly happens over a long period of time and then all of a sudden you realize the dryer is not working like it use to..Hope this helps you with your concern.....

Dryer gets hot but wont dry clothes


Do you know if the dryer vent is free of obstructions?Check outside where the dryer vents outside ,and see if the air is weak or flowing freely.If it is not clogged the air should be pretty strong from the vent outside.If it has blockage it will definitly take longer to dry your clothes.
