Easyest way is to follow the wires from the heater element, there will be two one near the heater element and one near the vent exhuast.

The heat on our tumble dryer does not appear to work but I am not sure how to detect if we are doing something wrong?

Hello Colin;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There are many different dryers with different electrical components.

You may have a hot air circulation problem. This is common where lint will block the air flow. You have a hot air distribution manifold, remove the manifold. At the smaller bottom is where the fan wheel discharges, this is where dryers usually plug up. The manifold is located where the hot air fan discharges air. Also, check the fan to make sure it is not plugged up and turns freely.

Needless to say unplug your unit first.

It could be a bad thermostat, and several other things.

If your unit is not plugged up with lint, please post again and provide a model number so I can see what you have

Your Air Conditioner's Condenser

Look for crimping in both refrigerant lines. They are most vulnerable where they leave the condensing unit and where they go through your exterior wall.The larger tube should be cold and insulated.

Check that the insulation is in good condition, without wear or cracks.The smaller tube should be warm along its entire length.

Use a carpenters level to check whether the condensing unit is level.

Cut back plants near the unit to improve airflow.

Do not place the outdoor air conditioner unit where walls, decks, fences and other structures restrict airflow.

Either move the unit or the feature restricting the airflow.
.Place the unit at least 6 feet from things that discharge heat, such as vents from water heaters and dryers.

Dryer vents also discharge lint, which plugs air conditioner coils.

Shut off your air conditioner when mowing the lawn to prevent clippings from getting sucked into the condenser.

And point the lawnmower discharge away from the condenser so it doesn't throw stones or other objects into the condenser's delicate aluminum fins.

Not heating

There are a few things that can cause the dryer to not heat there is a one time thermal fuse that can blow causing the heating element to not function . one cause of this thermal fuse to blow (in this case heat) would be the lint in the dryer vent tube it clogs the tube then the heat builds up by the heating element and blows the resistor this is very common . One other problem that can occur is the heating element could get burnt out and short out .after some years of use the wire come out of its normal shape and move around and eventually touch the side of the metal housing causing the element to open or break. you can check out this site and put in your model number and find the thermal fuse kit should cost around 22$ the heating element can be from 60 -180$ depending on what type of dryer you have

take the 9 hex head screws out of rear cover remove cover then on the blower housing toward the left side where the black duct comes down from the lint chute theres a thermal fuse on this round shaped housing with 2 wires to it its about 1" long by 1/4" wide if this opens the unit will appear dead,you can test it or bypass it for testing only if bad it needs replacing as its there for fire safety,also if its open/bad clean out any lint as this lint will cause overheating and burn out this fuse

Lint filter light goes on; vent unattached so no blockage and lint screen is clean. Thermostat? Temperature regulator? Model 3510 - about 6 plus years old


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with the first thing you should do is to remove the lint filter and clean the lint out of inside where the lint screen goes, I mean if you have not done this already. After this unplug the unit for 5-10 minutes and then push & hold the start/pause button for 10-15 seconds and reconnect the unit. If still it won’t work then it’s the Thermal fuse that has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Dryer will not heat

Probably nothing is wrong with the unit mechanicaly & electrically wise. Remove all vent tubing and thoroughly clean all lint out of the exhaust tubes. You will have a load of lint I will expect accumulated inside of yours. Once it is all removed the dryer will heat up back to the normal settings it had before. The moister control sensor will prevent the burner to ignite if the exhaust is plugged up with any obstruction especially lint which is a fire hazard

I have a maytag gas dryer model no# ldg7314aae.The dryer runs but there is no heat. the dryer vent was cleaned as well as the interior of lint and still no heat.I was wondering where to start as far as...

your thermal fuse near the dryer vent opening or blower housing inside the unit,this is a one-shot fuse when it burns out you can't reset it,you need to replace it,then the radiant sensor(senses the flame),high-limit and cycling thermostats located on the burner tube on the dryer,then the boost and secondary gas valve coils located on the units gas valve body near the gas inlet to the burner tube
