Question about Equator EZ 3600 CEE Front Load Washer / Dryer
My dryer is no longer heating up--in chicago Area--need to get parts or someone to repair. Can't find any repair service.
I am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----
Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Tips for a great answer:
It is possible that your dryer isn't
heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are
irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to
replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so
that you can test it.
Another possible cause for a dryer not
heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's
thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse
is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and
locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
If any of your dryer's thermostats have
become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not
heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's
thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.
A defective timer motor could also
cause your dryer to not heat up. Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is
no longer functioning as it should, replace either the entire motor
assembly, or just its motor.
