I believe tumble dryers have 3 thermostat fuses, they look like silver buttons, one on the back panel in the middle of the heating elliment, one in the ducting box for extraction and one somewhere else..I think.
tumble dryers are very empty inside, as long as its unplugged (I\'m an idiot.. 1 time) remove the back plate and have a look, if you need to unclip the wires inside to remove the panel, take photos so you know where they go back
for using FixYa. No Heat
issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly:
Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the
Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct
and is mounted in white plastic housing. If that’s fine then the Heating
Element should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the
issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
Getting to the heating circuits is not the same on every model of dryer. Some dryers have heating circuits in the REAR of the dryer, some have the heating circuits located inside the cabinet UNDER the drum and others have heating circuits BEHIND the drum.
If your dryer has the lint screen on the TOP of the unit, you will need to remove the BACK panel of the dryer to expose the heating circuits.
If the dryer has the lint screen in the DOOR, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips. They will be located along the seam in the front about 2 inches in from each side. If this is a Kenmore Elite or Whirlpool Duet, the lower toe panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel.
If you do not have a toe panel, you will need to lift the dryer top and remove the entire FRONT panel to access the internal components.
If you have further questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so I can determine how your dryer is constructed.
check breakers in panel make sure both are in the on possition(home elec. panel)....if thats not it replace both heating elements...they are located on the back usually held in by 2 screws in each one..youll find these at lowes or home depot
I'm haveing the same problem with my frididaire gas dryer. I replaced the ignitor and cleaned the inside parts with a vacume and still having similar problems as yours. I think I will replace the temp. sensor that is attached to the flame tube inside the dryer next. To gain access to the inside parts you will need a putty knife to release the top panel. Just slide the putty knife along the top seam in front of the drryer. There are 2 clips that realease the top peice. With the top lifed up you will see 2 phillips head screws attaching the front panel to the dryer. Remove those screws and lift upwards and the front panel will lift right off the unit.carefully place the front panel to the side without damageing any wires attached. Then all your gas assembly parts will be visable in the bottom left cornner of the unit.
The heating element is in the back of the dryer. Sometimes there is a small access panel that will allow you to check the terminals to the heating element. You will need an ohm meter or multimeter to check.
can you spin the drum by hand? if not,pull front panel off by removing three screws on bottom, remove lint screen, then remove three screws holding inlet housing ( the big brown thing in front) check to make sure not clogged with sock, panty hose ,bra underwire ,etc.
