Where IS the heating element?

My husband is sure the heating element is out on our dryer, but it's not like the others we've had and he can't find it. Thanks!

Hi my dryer is only just over 1 year old so of course warrenty is up and it wont heat. it runs and circulates but no heat, my husband cleaned out the vent tube what else can we do?? it cant be major its...


it could be the heating element even though it is just over a year old, i have seen heating elements go out on 3 month old dryers, it also could be a thermostat the best thing to do is make sure it is getting the full 220 volts going to it, if it only has 110 volts the motor will run and have no heat and vise versa, then if that is good get to the heating element and look it over real good most of the time the heating coil will be broke into it wont look burnt just broke

Dryer is not heating my husband pulled the heatin...


It could be the high limit switch. It is about 1 in dia. And 1/4in tall. And it is hooked up in line with the heating element. There is two of them that can cause it. Take an ohm meter and check to see if power will run through it. 0 ohms.

Electric Maytag Neptune Dryer not heating up.


If the dryer won't heat up, the problem is typically either a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is located just inside the back of the dryer on or near the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. The thermal fuse and heating element can be tested using an ohm meter or multimeter. These components should have continuity. If either does not, that component is faulty. There is no telling if the moving around of the machine caused the problem or if the timing of the problem was coincidental. Sure hope this helps ya and best wishes.

Could it be the heating element/coils?


From the info you've given, I'd suggest confirming whether the electrical circuit breaker arrangement for the dryer is single-pole (one wire and handle, 120V) or two-pole (2 wires and handles, 240V).  The heating element requires 240V.  Also, you mentioned a "fuse box". Hopefully you meant circuit breaker panel.  The wiring in any house old enough to have fuses instead of breakers would be a major concern unless you're into indoor barbeques in the middle of the night.

My dryer doesn't heat up


I had the same problem. I called the repair man and my heating elements were broken, I had them replaced and now my dryer works fine. For me getting it repaired was cheaper then buying a new one. Your repair man should give you a free estimate on the cost

Hoover TC650 Tumble Dryer will not heat up


Hello,
Not all that familiar with the Hoover Dryer line but in general if you have 12 volts being fed to the heater element.. you identified why it isn't heating .. Your husband is correct in that heater power should be line voltage.. You may have a non-resettable thermal fuse that has opened or a relay that feeds power to the heater is not being commanded to turn on by the logic on the control board. If your husband is handy and technically competent, he should verify that there is 220VAC at the input termnal block of the dryer itself ( carefully) to make sure you don't have one phase missing.. Those are the chief suspects... not sure that helped you but you now have a few ideas where to look...
Regards,
Rick
