Dryer wont heat up just spins keeps spinning with timer set. replaced heat element and still wont dry


Hi,

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.


check out this electric no heat tip...

My LG DLEX2910V dryer runs on and the drum spins but it doesn't heat up. It's only 3 months old and I have checked the vent and the power connections.

Plug problem


On a three wire configuration, the ground and the negative are tied together at the center position, using the dryer ground strap. Following is a description of the difference between three and four wire. Hope it helps you.
These two pictures illustrate the power wiring on a the terminal of an electric dryer. The one on top is the old-style three-wire configuration. Most people have this type in their homes. New code changes, though, require that dryers now have a four-wire cord, shown on the bottom.
Besides the number of wires in each cord, there are two important things to notice. First, in the four-wire configuration, notice that the dryer's grounding strap is folded back on itself. The whole point of the four-wire cord is to separate the ground from the neutral. The green wire (the "new" extra wire in the four-wire cord) is attached to the dryer cabinet. In the three-wire configuration, the grounding strap is left intact and the neutral and ground are tied together.


Sure hope this helps you find a resolution to your delimma! Best wishes.

Need to replace the power cord


This is actually one of the easiest repairs to make on most dryers.
Unplug the dryer from the wall of course.
At the point where the dryer cord enters the dryer itself there is usually a plate. One screw should hold this plate in place. Remove the screw and pull the plate out (it should only be held in by a couple of tabs). The cord is attached to the power supply with three (or four) terminals. Back the screws out and slide the cord out. Make careful note as to which color goes to which terminal. Usually the black (or red) color goes to the gold screw and the white goes to the silver screw. The green screw holds the ground wire in place which is also usually a green cord.
Once you have done this step then loosen the screws that hold the cord in place on the plate. This fitting should open as you loosen the screws and the cord should pull out easily. Then thread the new cord through the fitting and reverse the process. Just remember to thread the cord through BEFORE you connect the wires so that you don't have to undo your work!
Hope this helps!

GE Dryer not producing heat


First, replace the door switch. Second, check the wiring of the new cord. It should be as follows:
Dryers come with a wire or metal strap connecting the center "neutral" terminal to the frame of the dryer. When using a four wire power cord, take that wire or strap off the frame. (it can be discarded or better yet, in case this dryer needs to ever be converted back to a three wire cord) connect the frame end of the wire / strap to the center terminal of the power block. Now, Green (ground) wire goes to the dryer frame, White (neutral) goes to the center terminal, and the Red and Black (both "hot") wires go to either outside terminal. (one to each)
Third, if you still have no heat, make sure there is strong air flow out the vent outside the house when the dryer is running. If all that is good, check for 240 volts to dryer. (dryers can run the motor on 120, but need 240 to heat). Comment back (including model number) if you have further questions.

Read through the link provided, and make sure you have the power cord wired correctly at the terminal block in the back of the dryer. NOTE: If this is a new installation, you are required to be using a four-prong outlet with 4-prong power cord. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps solve your problem.
