First thing is to check the fuses. Often there is a separate line for the heating elements. If that fuse or circuit breaker is tripped there is no heat but the dryer will still turn.

There are heating elements behind the drum that may need to be replaced if broken. Also check thermostat control.

Electric dryer tumbles but does not dry clothes on any setting. dryer is only 4 yrs old.


Heating element has gone bad. You need to unplug unit. remove back, then find heating element and remove it. Look for what looks like broken springs, if found replace element. 99% of electric dryers not drying are the heating element. Cost around $50

My dryer is not heating,we have checked all of the settings, and the barrel is spinning so can you please help, the unit is about 4 yrs.old I have a maytag neptune


check ur breaker first, dryers will run on 120volts but wont heat unless have 240.

if electric check ur heating element, thermostats, and thermal fuse for continuity with a meter.

if gas check the ignitor,thermal fuse, and secondary gas coils,

No heat from dryer


Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.

Lightning strike power surge partially disabled dryer.(Whirlpool)


If it took a lightning strike something in the heating coil is shorting to ground tripping the breaker. DO NOT Keep trying it, you could cause more damage or even burn your house down.

No fire


This link --->click here<--- is the exploded view for your unit. If you look at diagram 4 (gas valve), the first guess would be a faulty igniter (diagram location 12). This is only a guess for no tests have been done to narrow down the faulty component.

If you need assistance, let me know.

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating.

My Kenmore Elite dryer spins with no heat


please check the thermal cutoff. these are the parts with 2 thick wires attached to it. they are normally located near the heating element ( if electrical ) and (near the exhaust if it is gas).

these parts control the heating element.

tnx 4 using fixya,
