Check the resistance of the heating element (8 to 14 ohms). If ok, then check continuity of the overload devices attached to the heat element duct. If either one or both are open then replace ($14 for both). Dryer should heat.

If heat element is faulty, the part can be purchased at Sears/Kenmore Parts Center and swapped out ($45.00).

Provide your dryer model number and ask for the needed parts.

Unplug your dryer first before attempting any service work. Safety first and always!

Overheats and turns off on timed setting


Is the drum turning? Also, the blower wheel on these tend to wear out and not hold the shaft of the motor. If the blower wheel does not turn with the motor then it will over heat. I am here if you need more help.

The dryer heats but the drum does not turn. The belt is fine, could this be the blower? model # sdg3606aww


If the unit is heating...I don't think it is the blower. It may actually be the motor-part: 2200376

My condo has a Hotpoint dryer. It is about 3 years old and last fall it no longer dried. I took the dryer hose off from the wall and the dryer works fine, heats the condo. The dryer vent goes into the...


Hi.

With most Hotpoint/GE dryers the blower motor is not spin by a belt. The problem is unlikely the blower motor. The problem is lint in the air ducts and in the blower housing. The lint results in overheating and the high limit switch cuts off the power to the heater (burner or element depending on the model).
As a result the dryer does not heat up.

Access the heating group and remove lint from the air ducts. Also clean the lint filter.

Hotpoint appliances are built by GE. Below service manuals for different GE-manufactured dryers:

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.

No heat and No blowing


Clogged lint filter, exhaust vent or outlet would reduce air flow but there would be some heating unless a high limit safety switch has tripped and needs to be reset.  There may be aa air flow switch that prevents the element from heating up if no air is flowing.  Blower wheel may have broken off at connection to motor shaft.

No heat


HI,

correct me if i am wrong your problem for your Dryer is not heating Right?

if so you can check this suggestion.

you do need a new motor.you need to take 2 screws out of top where lint filter goes. take top up and their will be 2 screws one on each side take screws out and pull upward and forward and the front panel will come off. you will need to remove belt and tub then you will see motor. you will need to be able to grab back side of motor that attaches to blower and front shaft of motor and turn opposite way to come loose from blower. you will then take back clip off and front clip and unplug motor and pull out. good luck hope instructions helped.

thanks,

Dryer runs but no air circulating


love2fix,

First use the dryers service mode and make sure that you are getting the same information as you suspect:

It's called "Field Service Mode"
1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.

There's a 95% chance that it is your blower and your dryer should confirm that.

I just recently replaced the blower in my GE Profile Harmony as well. While I had my dryer apart, I also cleaned the heck out of it. Excellent opportunity to take your vaccum cleaner and get all of those dust bunnies out!

I purchased the blower from www.applicancepartpros.com for about $146 S&H included.

Best of luck!

Dryer guide wheel was noisy and I opened the dryer up and found the wheel and stud badly scored. Fixed that and put machine back together and now the motor is very noisy and the machine shuts off...


you need to check the blower fan. the motor has a "D" shaped shaft. over time the blower wears, the motor will spin but the blower does not. the air flow stops and the drier over heats. replace the blower and it should be fine.
