Check the heating element and the limit switches they are the only things that would keep it from getting heat

My Bosch Nexxt 500 dryer stopped heating. All other functions work fine except heat. I've checked continuity on heating element & overtemp breaker- both OK. What else could be the problem? Fuse?


CONSIDER THIS
BOTH LEGS OF AC MUST WORK TO GET HEAT FOR DRYER
Maybe you don''t have power to both legs of your receptacle. Both legs of the 220 volt AC have to work go get heat. Only one leg is used to run the motor etc.. Your motor runs so this can fool you into believing that the electrical connection is ok when it really is not. Your dryer is on a double circuit with two breakers. If one fails you lose one 110 volt leg which can be the one giving the full 220 Volt needed for the heater. This happens quite frequently and people mistakenly replace heating coils. You could have a bad breaker, one of the two. You must check this first before assuming anything else. Get help if you are uncomfortable with potentially deadly voltages

My 70 series dryer the heating element is not working. I checked the heating coil for continuity and it is holding 12 ohms, the fuse has continuity and it has power. Flipped the breaker to se If that was...


your voltage is not right as it should be 220 volts, check the outlet to see if you have 220 if you do then its the cord, if not then it is either the outlet or the breaker-panel, to check panel remove panel and test both legs of the breaker you should have 220 if not then replace the 30 amp breaker.

DOES NOT HEAT


Dryers have thermal fuses that goes out. Unplug the dryer and check all the thermal fuse for continuity with an ohmmeter. A good thermal fuse would read very low reading in fractions of an ohm.

Dryer not heating, everything else is working fine.  Already tried heating coil replacement.  I think that was unnecessary.  Am looking for the fuses but don't know where to look.  Also...


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

Kenmore dryer makes no heat


replace the heating element. Or the control panel has weakening capacitor not sending correct current flow to the heating element

MY drier heating element shows 9 ohms continuity, it also shows 120 volts into and out of it when the drier is running. But the heating element wont heat up?


Have you checked the voltage at the outlet? You're supposed to read 220-240 VAC at the heating element. Your dryer heating circuits require at least 220 VAC to work. The motor, however, only uses 120 VAC. That's why your dryer may be running, but the heating circuits aren't heating. I would go back and check your outlet. You may be missing one leg of the 220 service, or have a loose, burned, or broken wire in the plug or terminal block (on the back of the dryer). Let me know what you find. I hope this helps you.

I have a maytag washer/dryer single unit stacker that works fine except the dryer does not give off any heat at all.


Start with resetting breaker dryer tumbles with 110 but needs 220 to turn on element. If still no heat might have a bad element.

Re: no heat and timer not moving


  If the timer is set for a auto dry cycle,  the timer won't advance if not heating.  You need to check for 220 volts at outlet.  It's possible to have only 1 110 volt circuit.  May be a bad breaker. or outlet.  If you have 220 volts at outlet,  you need to have an ohm meter to check continuity of the thermal fuses and the heater.   Access by removing rear panel.  UNPLUG FIRST!!!!!
