The wire connecting to the heating element keeps melting/burning. Ive replaced it twice, each time it melted, how do i fix it?


What size wire? When you replaced the heating coil, what did you use? Was it OEM? What part number? Do you have an ohm meter?

Dishwasher is not heating water and wont dry dishes.


Hi

The water is not heating as the heating element has gone bad or a fuse has blown which is preventing heating element to turn on. To check the heating element you'll need to turn off the dishwasher, unplug it. After unplugging it check the heating element for mineral deposit on it, clean the deposits using a soft brush and a cleaning solution (Don't scrub the element hard). If this doesn't resolves the issue then remove the panel and examine all the wiring connections to the heating element. Now, use a multimeter and check for the resistance reading (ohms, Rx1) for the heating element. The multimeter should display between 1200-1600 ohms or 1.2K ohms. If it is less than 1200 then you'll need to get the heating element replaced. Also, check for any blown fuse around the element. This should resolve your issue. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

My worldpool dryer truns but will not heat up??


Hi,


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.

Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Check the thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) that is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.
If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation.

Dryer doesnt work but i hear the timer working


Change your cycling thermostat. When your cycling thermostat fails, then the reponsibility of your heating element to shut down goes to the high-limit thermal shut off (closest to heat element) and the thermal fuse. Your cycling thermostat should shut down heat element when it detects about 140* air in the blower housing. Yours can't detect that anymore so it lets your dryer heat up and up till you blow the thermal. new cycling thermostat and thermal

The dryer works but does not heat


Before you buy an expensive heating element change out the thermal fuse. It's only about 15 dollars for a fuse as opposed to around 100 dollars for a heating element. Both can be purchased at a appliance repair shop. The thermal fuse is usually located near the heating element housing and has two wires coming off of it. Make sure you unplug the dryer first though. If the thermal fuse if dead then your heating element will only heat for about a second or two at a time. The way to check this is to open up the dryer so you can see the heating element. While it's running watch it and it the heating element comes on and then turns off then the thermal fuse is bad. If it doesn't come on at all then the heating element is bad. Wait a good 5 minutes though before determining if the heating element isn't coming on. Sometimes it takes a bit before it engages. I hope this helps you and if you have any more questions feel free to ask me. Good luck.
