Thanks. I popped off the old heating element and noticed that one of the coils had snapped in two. I bought a new element for $49 and popped it in there, and the dryer is now running good as new. The repair wasn't difficult at all. Thanks for responding ... gdickson817

Assuming it is electric, Check the wiring to the back of the dryer. The next area could be the thermal overload switch. It is located under the top of the dryer. Bypass it and see if it comes on. If it does, then there is the problem. If not you element is probably the cause. You can check it by using and OHM meter or perhaps you can visually check to see if there is any break in it. Let me know how you do.

Ge dryer way too hot. I have cleaned all the lint out but still way too hot. unplugged vent hose and ran machine still too hot. Took apart machine and tested continuity of heating element and its fine....


I do not know your definition of "way too hot". Remove the exhaust vent and insert a accurate thermometer in the dryer exhaust. Run the dryer on high heat. The temperature should get up to 165 degrees then cool down to about 125 degrees then back up to 165.
If it goes above 165 and stays there replace the high limit thermostat.
If it cycles correctly it is OK.

I have a Bosch WTL5410 dryer, which has no heat going to the otherwise functioning tumbler. Do you know where I could purchase another heating element and where I can get instructions regarding the...


Open front panel, remove heat exchanger and clean.
Unplug the dryer. remove the panel in the back of the dryer that covers the heating element. ( the inner panel). On top of the heating element you will see a thermal sensor with a small red button on it. Thats the manual reset button To test if the heating element is working properly you can disconnect the wires from the sensor and clip the connectors together . Plug the dryer back in and start it. pay attention to the heating element. It should begin to glow shortly. if it doesn't then your heating element is bad and needs to be replaced.

Unplug the dryer. Connect the wires back to the thermal sensor. Plug the dryer back in. Before you start the dryer, press the red button on the switch. This is your reset button. Start the dryer. If the heating element doesn't come on and dryer doesn't heat, then you need to replace that sensor.

Dryer only heats minimumly and is not drying clothes. Do I need a heating element?


The first thing you can try is pulling the dryer out and disconnecting the vent hose. Then run a normal load of close through the dryer to see if it drys the cloths quicker. If it does then the element is okay your vent is just plugged somewhere. You can check the temperature of the exhaust air with a meat thermometer which should be 120 to 160 degrees farenheit. If it is not then you may have a bad heating element.

Tumble dryer is turning and heating up but the clothes are taking twice as long as they should to dry. why? could it be the fan and is it worth fixing or buying a new one


it is not likely the fan. check your vent and see if it is kinked or plugged. look behind the dryer for a kink. take the dryer out and vacuum the vent. then go outside and see if there is enough air coming out. there is the possibility that it could be the element as well as it have two heating element strands and one could be broke or grounded. get a digital thermometer and check temp at back of dryer when you take the vent off. somewheres around 140 degrees F to 160

Hotpoint Aquarius Condensor Dryer not getting Hot


I don't know Hotpoint models but I do know Malber models very well which also have a condensing dryer. The dryer has a fan and a heating coil or heating element, similar to a hair dryer. If you are getting no air flow, then it could be the fan. If you are getting air flow but it is not hot, then it is probably the heating element which burnt out. In the Malber machine, the top cover comes off and you can see an aluminum duct on top with two terminals sticking out the side. These two terminals go to the heating element inside the duct, and the heater element is like the heating element in an oven. You have to remove the duct and then it splits into a top and bottom half, and then you can remove the heating element to replace it. The way to tell if it is bad is to run the machine in a dry cycle and see if there is 110 volts across the heating element terminals. If there is power, but no heat, then the heating element is bad. That element is usually the first thing to fail.
