    I have the exact same problem with my whirlpool electric dryer it is just shy of 2 years old. Before I went to bed at 10:30 I turned it on and when I woke up yesterday morning it was still running but only blowing cold air. It turns on and rotates but does not heat up......

Bosch WTVC3300 dryer keeps tripping reset button


If it keeps reseting, check if the ventilation house is clean, also check if the dryer blower is clean in convention with the filter conductor.

Maytag MED5700TQ occasionally completely shuts down during cool down mode


Sure!
You may have a bad timer, that is turning off the electricity to the motor while the heater is still energized.

Long time ago, dryers had about 3 "automatic shut-off's" two on the heating element, and one on the motor.
Because of the lint that comes with drying clothes, fire is always a danger.
Today, the "thermostat shut-off's" are up to 5, 6, or 7 on some models!
Sounds like your dryer is getting hot enough to trip one of these. When the whole machine cools down, the thermostat resets, and the machine starts again.'
I had a dryer do the same thing. The problem with that one was nothing more than dust and lint in the motor, and all I had to do was vacuum out or blow out the motor about once or twice a year.
Be blessed

I have a gas GE dryer DPGT750GCWW ;- it only heats occasionally. Sometimes it will work all day, other times it will heat one load and won't heat up for the next load. The vent has been cleaned...


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

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.

Dryer ran for hours and did not stop automatically, now runs but wont heat?


Good day,
If set to automatic and there is no heat it will run continually run without shutting off. You'll need to trouble shoot the heating problem.

A lot of the problems are due to limit fuses and limit thermostats located in the back. Beyond that you'll need to supply the model and whether its gas or electric.

Dryer has no heat.Changed the heating coil rear


Maybe you already know this, but occasionally the coils will swell when you first turn them on and they expand to the point of arc'ing off the housing. This puts you right back to square one. I learned the hard way to buy the entire assembly when changing and not just the coil. Not sure if this is your problem or not, but worth another check. I believe the next step would have to be in the control system.

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

MAYTAG PYE3200AYW, WILL NOT RUN, PRIOR TIMER PROBLEM


When it ran all night was it heating then? Are any of the breakers tripped? Are the connections secure in the back? But I believe if the heat was working when it was running, the timer may be the problem and they are simple to replace and not that expensive. If this unit is older than 15 years, then it may be time for a new one. The parts and time wasted may be better spent on a new one.

My dryer ran all day long. The timer was still in the same position as when I left the house. The 'regular' heat is now not working either, air fluff only.


one of the fuses in your house's fuse box is blown check both fuses for continuity and replace the blown fuse you only have 115 v coming to the dryer which will run the motor but wont run the heat or the timer let me know how you make out and dont forget to rate this suggestion thanks
