  1. Considerations
    • A dryer needs the proper voltage to produce the correct amount of heat. If your dryer isn't heating properly, it's possible that the power supply is the problem. Make sure that the dryer is firmly plugged into the outlet, and if you have a circuit breaker or fuse panel, check to make sure that everything is in working order.
    Theories/Speculation
    • Several things affect a dryer's ability to do its job. If an external source isn't causing the problem, then the dryer probably has a faulty part. Possible culprits include a damaged or burned-out heating element, a blown thermal fuse or damaged wiring, all of which will require replacing.

    Warning
    • The San Diego Fire-Rescue Department recommends having your dryer serviced by a professional repair person. If the problem is caused by something within your dryer's mechanism, you could make matters worse by trying to find and fix the problem on your own. With the exception of checking the dryer's external power supply, you should leave troubleshooting to a professional.

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.

My dyer heats and tumbles, but doesn't dry


I'd check first for clogged vent hose or clogged lint filter or clogged vent flap on wall (outside).

If that's not a problem, it may be a faulty thermostat. Heating element is probably okay if it heats some of the time.

More info, let me know.

Dyer not working


Most likely a faulty heating element or a blown thermal fuse. Both components can be tested using a multimeter. Test for continuity. A lack of resistance indicates a bad component. The thermal fuse located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually mounted on the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. If it has no continuity, the thermal fuse is blown. Hope this helped and best wishes.
