Dryer low heat

It sounds like one of the heating elements has gone out. I've replaced the one in mine and it's not difficult. They just plug in like the ones in an oven. You'll be able to tell which one when you get inside if that's it.

LG Dryer low heat doesn't work

It may be as simple as checking your lint filter.
If you use fabric softeners sheets, they tend to clog the lint filter holes. Washing it with soap and water will restore it back to normal and will allow the circulation that the dryer needs to properly dry your clothes.

Low heat

Dryers either heat or they don't heat. Complaints of "low heat" are always due to a restriction in the venting system.
There is either a clog in the hose somewhere or the hose is smashed. There could be an obstruction at the exit outside or the hose runs longer than 12 feet before exiting the house, to name a few.

Kennmore Elite HE4 no heat on low or extra-low setting

Assuming this is a gas dryer, it is likely the igniter has failed. The igniter plate has to heat up to glowing in order to heat up the thermocouple that turns on the gas valve.

My dryer does not not produce enough heat when in operation. It seems like it is just running and generating very low heat. Please help.

Really sounds like an element is burnt out or a safety has malfuctioned. Possible loss of power so check plug, recept., and breaker. Look for burnt terminals and reset breaker even if it does not look tripped. Dryer usually have 2 elements. One for low heat and both for hi heat. May want to check this out. Please keep in mind that some repairs can cost more than buying a new dryer. I got one at Lowes for about $200 and it works great. I don't think you can get a repair guy out and to the repairs for that amount. Just depends on how many whistles, buzzers, and bells you want on your machine.

Good Luck.

Dryer Heats on High all the time

I don't think it is the heating elements. You have checked out all the important stuff. Is there power coming from the controls on medium and low. It sounds like this is the problem.

Whirlpool dryer low heat works low heat does not

You may have either a bad thermostat control or wiring to the heat element burned in 2. Are you getting power coming out of the control switch when it is on high. If you are, then the element or wiring is bad. If you aren't, then more than likely it is in the control switch. Let me kmow how you do.

Extremely low drum heat but setting is on HIGH.

Electric (Kenmore - 60931) dryer takes forever (several cycles) lately to dry clothes set on high heat (actual heat in tub feels low though). There are no obstructions in the venting and the 240 volt connection is fine. The timer rotates the dial (timer motor working). Help!!!
