SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Dryer not heating

The first thing to do would be to check if the element is broken. Most dryers have a couple of screws that hold the top, and it opens like the hood of a car. The next step is to remove the drum, usually a couple of screws holding the front.

i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


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.

SOURCE: My dryer wont heat up...It just blows cold air....?????

It may be the thermal fuse but it could also be the heating element. The way to check is to open it up as described above and run the dryer. Watch the element and if it turns on then off again immediately then it is your thermal fuse. That is only about 15 dollars to fix and you can get a new fuse at any appliance repair shop. If the element doesn't ever come on then the element is burnt out and needs to be replaced. This is a little more expensive. I hope this was helpful and if you have any more questions feel free to ask me. Good luck.

SOURCE: whirlpool dryer won't heat how can I fix?

Hey, I just read an article online titled, Testing for 240 Volts to Your Dryer - Without a Voltmeter, here's the link http://www.davesrepair.com/DIYhelp/DIY240Vtester.htm

I am not sure how you could test anything else though, such as the thermal fuse or thermostat, without the Volt/Ohm Meter. They are about $10 at any big box home store--we just went ahead and bought one.

Good luck!

Kenmore dryer blows cold air. I replaced heat element still no luck? model 96263800


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when an electric dryer stops heating. The heating circuit is not just composed solely by the heating element, it is composed by the thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, motor centrifugal switch, and the timer. The first thing to look at when an electric dryer stops heating is the thermal cut-off. It cuts power to the heating element when it blows most likely due to the failure of the high-limit thermostat. The thermal cut-off must be replaced, together with the high-limit thermostat, if found open. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

Dryer goes on and spins but no heat. I've opened up the back but what now? Is there a specific part that if blown would cut off the heat? Model is a small one - probably cost about $300 - don't know the...


The thermal cut-off at the top of the heater duct/housing blows when the high-limit thermostat below it fails to cycle the heating element on and off properly to regulate the heater temperature. This thermal cut-off along with high-limit thermostat including the cycling thermostat on the blower housing are wired in series with the heating element and power to it is cut when the thermal cut-off blows as a safety feature to prevent fire. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

Roper electric dryer will not heat after replacing heating element and thermal fuse. what's wrong.


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when the dryer stops heating and the thermal fuse is not part of the heating circuit, it is part of the motor circuit. The heating circuit is basically composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The most common part that causes the dryer not to heat is the thermal cut-off and/or the high-limit thermostat. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further assistance.

Dryers tumbles but there is no heat


The problem is obviously in the heating circuit which is basically composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The most common part that causes the dryer not to heat is the thermal cut-off and/or the high-limit thermostat. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components.

Disconnect power then access the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat. Disconnect the wires of each component then connect them together and insulate it properly. Reconnect power then start the dryer. The problem is indeed in the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat if the dryer heats up. Replace both parts and it should solve the problem. It is an easy and cheap repair to make. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further assistance.

Also bypass the cycling thermostat if the dryer still doesn't heat with the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat bypassed. Check the heating element visually for obvious broken or damaged coil. An ohmmeter will be of great help in checking the resistance/continuity of the heating element. Replace the heating element if broken or damaged, NEVER attempt to repair it.

The problem is likely in the motor centrifugal switch if the dryer still doesn't heat with good heating element and the three components above bypassed. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further assistance.

Heating elements gets very hot


check the air flow into the unit if clear and the outlet pipe is clear as well the dryer need to breath freely or it over heats till the thermol cut out shuts it off,,, but this may kill it off all together

NO HEAT


The electric dryer heating circuit is composed of the heating element, high-limit thermostat, thermal cut-off, cycling thermostat, timer, and centrifugal switch. Parts may vary depending on the make and model of the dryer; specify it for a more specific advice. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The dryer will not heat when any of its components has failed. Check the continuity of the high-limit thermostat, thermal cut-off, cycling thermostat and the resistance of the heating element using a volt-ohmmeter. The heating element has a resistance range of 8 ohms to 12 ohms depending on the make and model of the dryer while the other three components must have zero resistances.

The timer and the centrifugal switch are less likely to cause a no heat problem and must only be checked when the components mentioned above are found to be in operating condition.

Again, specify the make and model of the dryer for a more specific advice.
