By the time a dryer has worn out a motor and element, the wire connections are old too. You are going to have to check every connection, especially the push-on type for tightness and corrosion.

If I remember correctly, this model has a switch on the motor which activates both legs
of the 220 to allow the heating element to come on. There is a wiring diagram under the
lid of the dryer and should show this. Hope this helps.

HE5 dryer has no heat - everything else appears to work, tube spins , controls can be set, start. But no heat. Purchased new in early 2008, may be used 2 times / week.


Several reasons this could be. There is a separate fuse for the heating element inside the unit...find it and check it. Second...The element works on a 220v system whereas the spinning and lights work on regular 110. Check the 30 amp breaker in the house. Third, the element is bad and needs to be replaced. There are only 3 or 4 major parts to a dryer. There are easy to repair if you take the time to get the repair manual and study it.

Heating element is not working


I would say it could be one of two things. The heating elements could be bad, not likely though as the were working when the dryer was reset. You may want to try changing your circuit breaker, as your heating elements work off of the 2 phase 240 voltage while everything else in the dryer works off 120V. Check the voltage on each phase of the breaker in your electric panel see if your putting out the full 110-120V per phase.

First Clean out your filter, Assuming the element is okay and cut-out are fine it should run okay, you could also try running it on low heat will take a bit longer but hey if it works great..Good luck

Everything seems fine but will not heat up I checked continuity, on every thing and it seems fine and I did the more less more less and all codes came up fine took the heating element out and it seems fine...


First things first...Are you sure that you have 220 volts to the dryer? Just because the motor runs doesn't neccesarily mean you have the proper voltage. Also check the connections where the cord comes in to see if they are tight and intact.

Dryer will not heat


Check to make sure you have 240V at the outlet. If you do, check the continuity of the element and thermostats. If still no heat, it could be the temperature setting switch, the timer or the motor.
Good luck!

Estate dryer electric, heating element gets hot but motor does


shut off power to dryer. take front off dryer,remove belt from motor and idler pully (if there is one) try turning the motor shaft by hand. if it doesn't turn ,take off back of dryer and remove blower housing and see if anything is blocking the impellers.. if not any of these then you may have to get professional help it may be a bad motor or timer

Roper REX5634KQ0 runs for two minutes in any cycle and then stops


This problem sounds like a bad motor bearing causing the motor to overheat, when the motor overheats there is a thermal protector that opens and the motor will not run until it cools down.
