Dryer heater not working

I have a Frigidaire front loading dryer that does not heat up. I have checked the thermistor and it is within specs. I can put it into test mode and the heater works fine but not when in regular mode. According to the technical data sheet, the electronic control is bad. Any ideas?

If heater works in test mode then the only thing keeping it from operating would be the ctrl as you guessed correctly. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

How do i clean the impeller?


ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or
overheating.

The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty, test it with avolt-ohm-multimeter (VOM)set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the leads from the power terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. The meter should read about 12 ohms. If the reading is higher ohms, the heater is faulty and should be replaced. Replace a faulty heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. A heater connected to a 115-volt line usually has an 8.4-ohm resistance; a heater connected to a 220-volt line usually has 11 ohms resistance.


Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

OR you may have a broken centrifugal switch in the motor because this switch activates the motor and the heater as well. supposed to be if the motor does not run , the heater should not heat in order not to create fire but if the motor is not running, and the heater is still heating, then there could be a problem with the motor centrifugal switch that is connected to this interlock switch that should trigger the heater.

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum 9 this is why in some cases the dryer will operate at lower cycles like gentle or low heat but not at higher settings?)

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

What is code f64? on frigidare affinity clothes drire mean?


The E64 error code is telling you that there is a problem with the heater
You will need to take the dryer apart and check the heater circuit.
The heater circuit is all the components inside the dryer that make the dryer heat. You have the heater itself that needs to be checked for breakage, and 2 or 3 thermostats and the wiring. The computer is sensing that the heater circuit is open, or in the state of not conducting electrical power to the heater.
Do you have a volt-ohm meter? This would be the least amount of tools that you need to even start on a problem such as you have.

Dryer runs but no heat. Stackable set, dryer on top.


More than likely the Thermistors are blown. They are located on the heating element canister inside the dryer, they are kinda oblong shape with two electrical connections. If you have a multimeter you can check for continuity on the thermistors and the heating element just be sure to disconnect one of the electrical connections on the thermistors and the heating element so you don't get a false meter reading, Thermistors can be purchased from most appliance repair businesses for around $30.appliancguru.jpg

Dryer is not hot.


you need to check your vent and if it is clean then check your heater some of them have 2 heaters side by side and 1 could be all that is working

Dryer won't heat


If it is an electric heater that means that either the heating element,or the thermistor , or the cirrcuit breaker connecting the element mustbe replaced.

Dryer problem


check input voltage make sure you have 240 volts red to black and 120 red or black to white. then check heating element. and hi temp cutoff. On Frigidaire built machines (includes some GEs) a temp thermistor on exhaust duct at front of machine is a common problem. 50ohms is normal- less causes problems
