Dryer Heats on High all the time

This dryer is on High heat all the time except for air dry. Low and Medium do not work. I check ed the control circuits and the different resistance values seem to be there. The heatin element is 12 ohms and the parallel circuit is 10K for medium heat with 2.4K added for low heat. It all seems to check out. Would the heating element be the problem?

I don't think it is the heating elements. You have checked out all the important stuff. Is there power coming from the controls on medium and low. It sounds like this is the problem.

LG Dryer low heat doesn't work


It may be as simple as checking your lint filter.
If you use fabric softeners sheets, they tend to clog the lint filter holes. Washing it with soap and water will restore it back to normal and will allow the circulation that the dryer needs to properly dry your clothes.

My dryer wont dry laundry in1 cycle


A lot of the times if a dryer starts taking numerous cycles to dry clothes it is because the vent to the outdoors has become clogged with lint. This keeps the dryer from being able to discharge the moist air. You can buy dryer vent brushes with a wire attached that you can use to keep the vent clean.

Dryer only heats on medium and high settings and the medium setting is very hot. Does not heat on low at all.


Sound to me like you need to check the vent for proper air flow. Make sure the pipe to the wall aint kinked. Take it apart and clean it up real good. My homemade crappy movie;

Kennmore Elite HE4 no heat on low or extra-low setting


Assuming this is a gas dryer, it is likely the igniter has failed. The igniter plate has to heat up to glowing in order to heat up the thermocouple that turns on the gas valve.

Frigidaire Front Load Dryer Model # leq2152eeo Problem: it is not drying the clothes. The dryer heats up and everything else is working, except it takes 4 cycles to dry something that should have dried...


while the dryer is running.go to the outside of the house and check the air flow,there should be a large amount air being blown out if there is not check the vent and ducting for lint build up and make sure the hose is not kinked.
when there is restricted air flow all the warm moist air will stay in side the dryer causing the clothes to take a long time to dry. i hope this helps you with your dryer

Poorly heating clothes dryer


Best way to test the elements and stats is to disconnect each one in turn, and with your meter set on the ohms range ,test each one in turn for continuity, you should get F.S.D.(full scale deflection) on each component.
Another way to test the element, is to bypas the stats, and connect the 240v suplly directly to the element, it should get red hot, but do not leave it on for more than a few seconds..
If it had gone down to earth, then theoretically it should trip the circuit breaker.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Frigidaire dryer heats but clothes not drying


A1 Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.

Dryer heats up but clothes won't dry


Sounds like to me, that you need to check the vent going outside from the dryer. I had the same problem, and found a birds nest in the dryer vent on the outside of my house restricing air flow. If that doesn't fix the problem, look into a new heating element and or thermostats for the dryers. The old ones could just not be getting hot enough anymore. Good luck.
