Dryer not heating


Check Heating elements if ok check the in line fuse that go to drying element and if it open replace it and clean filter and check pipe that blow out side make sure it not stop up because if in line fuse is open stop up filter and pipe that blow air out side will cause the heating element in fuse to open up. And check for lose wire going to element to.

Dryer has no heat


I have one of those Kenmore "Laundry Center" stacked washer/dryer units. It comes built that way - it is not two units stacked on top of one another (if there is such a thing).

My guess is that it is at least 13-14 years old now (it came with the house I bought) and about 3-4 years ago, it also stopped heating. The dryer would run for a couple of hours and all of the clothes would still be damp and the air in the dryer was not warm or hot.

I searched online and found that the usual cause is the heating element wire was probably burned out if the dryer was otherwise running all right. I found some repair instructions online and the procedures to take the dryer apart (can't recall where - just Google it).

The heating element is like a long coiled resistance wire, similar to what you would see in a toaster but heavier duty. It is strung in a circle behind the dryer drum tub to heat the air that enters the dryer.

If you've ever looked into a toaster when toasting, you'll notice that that thin resistance wire glows red hot which generates the heat. Now imagine that thin wire being red hot and the dryer tumbling, causing constant vibration. It's amazing that the heater resistance wire doesn't break more often!

A pretty handy DIY-er can take the dryer apart and replace the heater wire, but the challenge is getting the stacked unit out in the open somewhere where you can work on it. You need a fair bit of room.

My advice would be to also buy the drum belt replacement kit to also replace that at the same time. If you're going to go to the trouble of taking the dryer apart to replace the heater wire, you might as well replace the drive belt and associated felt pad, etc. at the same time. You DON'T want to have to take the dryer apart again a little later to change that part when it breaks. (It's like a timing belt on your car - if you're doing major work on your car and have the engine apart and it's "about time" to replace the timing belt per the manufacturer's maintenance schedule, might as well do it a the same time to save on repeating the labor again.)

What could it be


Hello Reese,
I see that you're having a Problem with your Frigidaire GLEH1642DS Front Load Stacked Washer/Dryer. I see that the washer will not work until dryer is turned on and the dryer will not heat. I would recommend giving the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or switching the circuit breaker off that the appliance is attached to. When you do this you will want to leave it off for 3-5 minutes. Once the 3-5 minutes has elapsed, bring power back on and try to restart it. If you are still having trouble with the washer not working until dryer is turned on and the dryer will not heat. I would suggest contacting your local authorized technician to diagnose and see why you keep receiving this error code.

-Best Regards-

Whirlpool stacked washer/dryer won't heat


Check your wiring connections, then check your upper limit thermostat for continuity with an ohm meter this unit should show short when cold, open when to hot. It will be located near the heating coil assembly.

My dryer stopped heating up...it still spins but without heat


Dryers are pretty simple. There is a door switch, a thermostat, and a heating element. The thermostat is what generally goes bad in a dryer.

Unplug unit! Remove top screws and pull off top lid of dryer. Heater terminals should be at top right. Use ohm meter to check resistance. If ohms won't display, then your heater unit probably has an open circuit. For instance, my GLET1031 has a reading of 12.5 ohms.

Dryer no longer heats up on my Kenmore 417.94812301 laundry stacked unit


On your dryer the common problems found is either you lost some of your electrical power (check your fuse box) or you need a new heater #131475300 about $100 for the part.
