Dryer not heating


Someone will need to take it all apart and check the heating element with an electric meter, and also the fuse if it has one, and each of the overheat thermostats. ( it may have as many as 4.)
If one of the thermostats or the fuse has failed, be certain to verify there is no lint in any of the vent pipes inside the machine, and a very clear vent pipe to the outside air.
God bless your efforts.

It takes about 3 hours for my clothes and towels to dry this is getting ridiculous, any ideas thanks


Hello there and welcome to fixya
This is a very common issue with most makes of dryers here is a few things that are the most common problems
Drying is too slow It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. To determine if the heating element is burned out, Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician. Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws. i will post a picture of the parts on the back so you can look at them too ok?

The dryer is not fully drying clothes


Here are a few basic trouble shooting things to try to get you started. Is this a gas or electric dryer? I will assume electric. Check to make sure the heating element is heating up. You can do this by taking off the vent hose on back, putting the dryer on a hot dry cycle and feel the air coming out. You should have a very strong flow and after just a few minutes you should have hot air. If the air flow is weak, you need to clean the vent and lint tray with a flexible brush to clear any lint and debris from the air path. If the dryer is not blowing hot air it could be a thermostat, the heating element itself or even a bad circut breaker only allowing half of the 220 volt electric to work.

If you have a strong air flow, and hot air the next step is to hook the dryer up to the vent again, go outside and find where the dryer vent exits the home. At the vent exit if you have flaps covering the exit they should blow out fully when the dryer is running, and if there is no vent cover the air flow should be just as strang as it was at the back of the unit. If it is a weak flow you will need to clean or replace the vent from the dryer to outside the home. The most common cause of slow dry or incomplete drying is restricted air flow or the heater not working. Please let me know if any of this helped or fixed the problem. If not we can look into more possible solutions.

My whirlpool AWZ510E washer dryer - the dryer doesn't seem to be working - it goes through the cycle but the clothes are still as wet as before. I am using the same cycle as I always have which used to...


there are 3 reasons for a dryer not doing the job yet running through the motions. 1st, the heat is not being produced and only cool room temp air is circulating. this can be a burned-out electric element or an over-heat sensor, or in0line safety fuse. ( if gas, can be ignitor or gas valve coils).. It could be that the washer is not ringing (spinning) dry the clothes verywell and there is too much moisture stiil in clothes which would double the dry time from 50-60 minutes to 2 hours. 3rd, could be clogged vent line and the hot moist air cannot leave the dryer so the clothes get hot by the moisture stays.

My Hirundo is not drying well. After hours of spinning the clothers are still wet, and not like usual. The water is draining. Is there a heat elementy to replace? A vent to clear?


Make sure all vents are clean and clear. Next, check the thermal fuse. It should be located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. It can be tested by using a multimeter or ohmmeter to test for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a blown thermal fuse.
Another cause could be a faulty heating element. It can be tested in the same manner as the thermal fuse. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My indesit widl 126 is not drying (no heat )


If electric, check the following areas.

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.


If gas, check the following areas.

1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective

Dryer that will not dry well


One of two things... An almost totally blocked vent to the outside or a bad heating element. Remove the vent form the back of the dryer and get a "feel" for how much air flow is coming straight out without any venting connected. Then connect it back up and with the dryer running, go outside and give it the "feel test" judging as close as you can the percentage of air flow loss through the house venting. Anything more the 30% air flow loss will cause the dryer to take forever to dry. As far as the heating element, on a Whirpool, it slides up into a plenum in the back as kind of a rack type assembly. Not that difficult to replace by remove wire connecting to it, thermostats attached to it and (probably) two screws that are securing it in the plenum.

Heats but won't dry


I'm not at all familiar with the Malber brand, but I do know that the basics any dryer needs to work are: 1. Heat 2. tumbling (so the air can reach all areas of the wet clothes) and 3. air flow, so the moist air is removed from the dryer.

The number one cause of poor or no drying is poor air flow. Check the end of the vent outside to see if you are getting a strong flow of air out when the dryer is running. I'll bet you are not. Find out why and correct. (clean out lint, reduce or better yet eliminate any flex duct, try to make vent pipe as short and straight as possible, use a dryer vent end cap which has a large opening, etc.)

No heat


If there is no heat during drying cycle, it is usually either the heating element, or a thermal fuse.

See the following suggestions from repairclinic:

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
