What makes my heating sensors go out on my dryers?

I live in a trailor and since moving in weve went through three dryers and would like to know if it could be the sircuit breaker or another reason why the heating sensors keep going out. I dont think there just the dryers.
Its gotta be another reason, would like to know what though. The dreyers still turn on but no heat.

The most commen reason for sensors to go is a poor air flow situation. plastic venting that collapses in behind the dryer or a restricted vent

Hotpoint nvl333gyoww gas dryer's timer stopped working and ran for an extended length of time (about a day). After looking over the dryer, i noticed that during the no heat cycle the timer would work. So...


the timer : if you use time dry the timer should always move and complete the cycle. if you use auto dry the timer uses a sensor to tell the timer to move. If your not getting any heat your sensor might not tell the timer to move.

So lets start with the no heat problem. First make sure your Vent is clear or just disconnect the vent and put a pair of womans stocking over the end to keep the dust down, This will ensure you do not have a blocked vent. ((( If you have a blocked vent on a gas dryer the safty sensor will shut off the gas valve and you will only get a little bit of heat))) Now try the dryer for small load, ((( if this solved your problem then you have a cloged vent )))

If this did not solve your problem then the coils on your gas valve in the dryer are probably bad.

LIGHT COMES ON IN DRYER, CAN HEAR TIMER, DRYER WON'T COME ON, HAVE CHECKED CONTINUITY ON DOOR SWITCH,HEAT SENSOR, START SWITCH


there are two or three heat sensors in a dryer one on the vent one by the fire/drum and one sometimes just for fun. Make sure you follow the wires and check all of them

Tumble dryer spins, but doesn't heat up


You need an ohm meter to do needed checks. Unplug dryer from power,,, then look for sensors and locate the heat coils. Using the ohm meter, check each device by connecting meter to the posts ( your looking for an open curcuit) Note that when you touch the leads of the ohm meter together, the gage will move? This is closed condition, and if the needle did not move, this is called "open". When you find a sensor or heat coil that reads open, that part is bad.
Now make sure there is not a tripped breaker in the fuse panel of the house,,, because even though the dryer is 220 volt,,, 110 volt runs the tumble motor while the other 110 volt curcuit runs the heat side ( so one will work without the other)

Hi, I hooked up my LG DLE5955W dryer and it powers up fine but I have no heat. The outlet I had for my old dryer was different than the one required for the LG. I went to home depot and got the correc


The following link explains how to properly wire a three or four prong 220VAC appliance:

Read through the link provided, and make sure you have the power cord wired correctly at the terminal block in the back of the dryer. NOTE: If this is a new installation, you are required to be using a four-prong outlet with 4-prong power cord. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps solve your problem.

My dryer is running but it doesnt producing any heat. The dryer has air moving thru the system and the timer but no heat? it worked yesterday


One of three things is your issue.

1. Thermal fuse is bad
2. Thermistor is bad
3. Heat element is bad.

This is a newer type dryer that probably has control board also. Probably gonna need a service tech to come inspect unless inside parts are like an older style dryer.

Old dryers are easy to fix, but these new ones have parts like a computer in them making it harder to take apart and fix unless you have technicial background.

Make sure your lint trap stays clean all the time, this is usually the cause of one of the three parts above to go out prematurally.
Hope this helps

Maytag Neptune Dryer-stopped heating


first, check the exhaust, make sure every inch of it is clean on the inside. if there is any blockage, the heat will build up in the exhaust and a sensor will shut down the heating element.

Kenmore Dryer heat is on high on all three settings


Before assuming you have a component problem with your dryer, ask yourself this question, "When was the last time I inspected and cleaned my dryer ventilation?" If you can't remember, or if it has never been done, you may have a simple case of a dryer exhaust system that is clogged. A dryer requires proper air flow in order to work properly and efficiently. If the dryer is clogged, the heating circuits actually will overheat. The result will be longer dry times, a dryer that is too hot, or eventually a dryer that fails. A simple way to determine if it IS an exhaust problem is to perform the following:

1. Pull the dryer away from the wall and remove the exhaust hose.
2. Start the dryer with a load. The air at the exhaust should be forceful and warm (about 140 degrees F for most dryers).
3. If the air is warm, allow the clothes to dry to see if they dry efficiently like they should.
4. If they do not, or if the air flow is weak, inspect the dryer blower fan housing to make sure it is not clogged and that the fan is moving.
5. If the air flow is normal and the clothes dry just fine, reconnect the exhaust vent and check the air flow at the exhaust where it leaves your home. If the air flow is weak, I recommend cleaning the ventilation, and checking for any kinks that may be obstructing air flow.
6. If the air flow at this point is normal, and your dryer is still not operating correctly, then we may have a problem. A common problem is the wire coming off the auto dry sensor inside the dryer. The auto dry sensor bar is located inside the drum along the front. There is a connector wire that attaches to it behind the lower panel.

Inspect your dryer first and make a determination of what it is or isn't doing correctly. I would hate to recommend parts without you first doing some routine inspections. It could be that you may not need any replacemnt parts and may just be able to save yourself a service call. I hope you find this information helpful. If you need addtional assistance, please let me know.

PS It is recommended that you use the semi-rigid metal type dryer exhaust hose. It is crush resistant, heat resistant and hold up well against rodents.
