Well if it was the door switch or heater box fuse nothing would work,i'am almost sure it's the heating coil that's broke,it is a $39 part online ,it's pretty easy to do,let me know if if you want to give it a shot,before ordering we'll check to make sure that's it-mike

My dryer we've had for about two months won't dry clothes. it heats up, but they are still wet four cycles later


I was thinking you have a bad circuit breaker. This dryer runs on a 2 pole 30 amp 240 volt breaker. The motor runs on one side of the breaker on 120vac. The heater has to have 240 volts to work correct. When that breaker is on the way out it will take a new dryer 3 or four times as long to dry the clothes. themobilian_294.jpg
If you are cleaning the lint filter out and don't have a clogged vent pipe themobilian_295.jpgthen in my opinion you have a bad circuit breaker. Seen it.

Our Neptune only blows super hot air. Which may sound good but it is ruining the clothes. It will not blow cooler air at all. Seems like this problem started more than a month ago. Is there an easy fix...


Clean the lint out of all air passages including the exhaust hose to the outside. Wash the lint filter in hot water and detergent to clean away fabric softener deposits which block air flow. Make sure that nothing is obstructing the air intake for the machine. If the problem continues, the heater thermostat may need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

The dryer has no heat


Hi,
Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.

Select the heat setting other than Air Fluff.

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

My maytag front load dryer turns on and runs,it does not blow any hot air


Hi,
Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check that the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.

Good Luck and have a nice day.

Dryer gets really hot, blows circuit breaker, vent is clean and clear, circuit breaker replaced, seems to be something that controls the heat isnt working..


Howdy: In back of the dryer is a thermostat (inside) that lint hangs to. If it reads too hot it should stop heating. If not working then blows breaker. Inspect please, we do not want a electric fire. Good luck - Doug

LG Dyer blows 30amp fuse frequently


Hello davidkado,
There is a high probability that when you replaced your fuse box to circuit breakers that the wiring at the fuse box was retightened. If your dryer had been operating Ok for the better part of a year and then you started to blow fuses on a regular basis.. chances are the wiring coming from the fuse box tap was becoming loose from thermal expansion and contraction and that by changing to a breaker system.. your wiring was cut and reterminated to fit the breaker tap. I suspect you won't be having any additional problems...
Regards,
Rick

Try cleaning out the the vent tube. Sometimes lint gets caught up in there over time. Hope this helps.

Code "PF" = N/A


Soft Touch -PF- means power failure, nothing else. Most likely the problem is not with the dryer. The circuit breaker became too weak for the dryer load. I beleive replacing the circuit breaker will solve the problem. Gendos...post back
