Before you replace the heating element, check the thermal fuse. All heaters have safety thermal fuse. This opens in case the thermostat fails. This is normally attached on or near the heating element, looks like diode. (When replacing, do not solder ! this will damage the fuse)

SOURCE: Crosley Dryer Heats then stops

If im thinking right, this dryer has the element in the top left corner.  This unit has two thermostats, one mounted right above the element, and the other in the lower left front mounted on the fan housing.  The one in the front is called the high limit thermostat, which means when it gets to a preset high temp, it cuts off the system until cooling occurs.  The top thermostat, mounted above the element is the operating thermostat.  It probably is one of the two thermostats.  Its a very good idea to replace not only both of the thermostats, but the fuse as well.  The fuse kit (Maytag Part# LA-1053) comes with a thermostat and 2 fuses, be sure to follow he instructions on how to determine the fuse for electric and gas.  The high limit thermostat (Maytag Part# 53-0771) is an easy replacement.  Something is causing the unit to short cycle.  Sometimes you can hot-wire the operating thermostat (use caution, severe caution if doing this, not recommended if you arent sure whats going on).  By doing this (removing the two wires from the thermostat, taping them together), you can watch and see if the element stays on longer, at least until the high limit switch comes on.  This is really not recommended, if the high limit is out, it will not be good.  Just easier to replace them both.

Formed in 1976 in Winston-Salem, NC, the Crosley Corporation consists of a group of independently owned distributors who resurrected the Crosley trade name and introduced a line of refrigerators, freezers, ranges, dishwashers, air conditioners, and other appliances. We carried the heritage of such features as "Shelvador" and "Conservator" that were marketed for decades.

Crosley CDE4700LW0 FRONT LOAD DRYER


Shut power off to dryer at breaker. Pull the two wires to thermostat off terminals. Using electrical tape wrap around wires to join them. This will bypass your thermostat. Turn power back on. Start dryer. If it heats your thermostat is faulty. If it doesn't heat it is most likely your heating element.

My electric dryer is a crosley conservator-- looks like a wide front door front load dryer and it will not start. The timer button works but nothing else. It is 3-4 years old. There was no odors or any...


While this could be any number of things it sounds like for whatever reason the heating element is not working. If a thermostat fails it will not allow the machine to work for safety reasons. However, I had a problem with excess moisture getting into my circuitry and it would not work until I let it dry out. I had to flip the circuit breaker off for quite some time until it dried out and it finally worked. I could cheat the process a bit by using a hair dryer to speed up the circuit panel drying time. In the end after finally finding which electronic button was the culprit I was able to spray WD40 on the affected button to help keep it dried out.
So, try letting it sit for a few hours and if it works after that it is moisture getting into the circuitry. If it does not work after that it is either the heating element or one of the thermostats. You can Ohm these out to check them if you need to. Let me know if it starts working after setting or if you need to check the readings on other parts.

Dryer won't heat


Jess, the model number comes up as a Crosley electric dryer. Start first at the terminal block where the cord attaches. Should read 120V from each end to center and 240V across the two outer. If this is ok, check the thermal cut out, this will be the top limit switch on the heater housing. Should read closed. Ohm out the element itself with the wires off, should show continuity. You should have 240V across the terminals on timed dry. If that checks good, go to the motor harness. One leg of power to the element goes through that switch. Check that all the wires are intact in the harness and reseat it. Check these things first...Catriver...post back.
