  • teoh Feb 11, 2009

    kenmore 90 series electric drying has no heat.
    This has happened before with another machine, That time the problem was fixed when we changed the fuse. This time , we could not fix the problem. We had tossed out the first dryer, cos we didn't know of the problem.This is the third machine, we brought back the 2nd dryer, plug it in and it has the same problem , no heat (the 2nd dryer is still working, but just older). Checked the fuse , replaced one, we switched the fuses with the stove, still not working.
    Can you help?

I had the same problem. If its a gas dryer it is more than likely the thermal fuse located in back on the exhaust duct. also check ( this site can explain alot.

Dryer will not dry clothes.

I assume it runs and this is from that stance. If it doesn't the motor has to be checked and the power coming in. In fact the dryer can run and still not have the correct power to opperate the heater.

Assuming you have a volt meter and know how to use it properly.

These are the steps that the power and machine have to take to operate properly

A. If the dryer has all of these things it has to be heating and an air flow problem (kinked or dirty dryer duck, motor fan clogged with lint, vent flapper not opening...) is suspect.

1. power is correct (USA 220V across line and 115v to ground/neut) 2 hot lines with potential between them and a neutral and possible a ground
2 Door switch is closed
3 Timer switch closes and ready s power to heating element through centrifugal switch in the motor circuit after the motor is running.
4 the heating element is assumed to be good and have 220v at this point. Checking for voltage at the element will assure all before are ok and at least allowing the heater to work.
5 the heating element is controlled by 1 or more thermostats and a safety thermostat. If either of these switches do not close when the dryer is "cool" they are bad. NOTE some dryers could ahve 3 wire thermostats. These can read closed on one set and open on the other. And this is how they should be if good. But tracing the wire diagram will tell which set is closed and when.
6 if you have power, the timer contacts to the motor and the heater (separate circuits usually)are "closed", the motor runs, the cent switch "closes", the temperature operating thermostats are closed, and the heating element is good you have to have heat.

1 Check for 220V power into the dryer. If not check breakers and turn off and on several time pushing them firmly. If this is ok and 220V present step 1 is done.

2 This assumes the motor will run

Dryer runs but no heat

There are several things to check. Check that there is 220v to the machine. Sometimes there is only 110v and the motor will run but no heat. Check the thermostat and thermal fuse. could be the switch in the motor. these are good places to start.

Dryer stops running before cycle is over then wont restart right away. it doesnt seem to be over heating. i have cleaned it to almost new condition so lint is NOT the problem. If i try to immediately start...

Hi, well you did the right thing by cleaning the lint and the unit up good. That's what causes a dryer to over heat. The problem you are having is with the motor over heating. I know this because I have had this happen on many dryers, and just from the information you gave me by trying to start it after it stops and it just hums. That's the motor locked out due to over heating for a internal problem, windings, maybe worn bearings or just wearing out.If you know about electrical, and you have an amp probe, you can see what the running load amps of the motor are and clamp the probe around the Hot wires AT the motor one at a time and see what the motor is pulling as far as amps.After the motor cools, I bet it will start again and run for awhile.The cost of the motor and getting it out may not be worth it. You can call a used appliance shop and may get a good used motor.But believe me, it is the motor. I'm sorry to tell you. Sincerely,
PS when it hums and then nothing, it trips the overload due to the heat.

No heat

if it's a gas dryer, it's the thermal fuse. if it's an electric dryer, it's the thermal cut-off located on the heating element housing. good luck bud :)

Dryer has no heat to it, but runs

Running is good. That means lots of stuff is working. On the motor is a switch that turns the heat on once the motor gets up to speed. The other wires on the motor are start and power for run. Check your heater elements for continuity. Running usually means the door switch is ok, timer ok. Check around for fuses, burnt wires, loose wires. Check the heat sensors for continuity. They should conduct electricity untit they get hot.

Dryer not heating!! Harmony dpgt750ec

If you have tried all the normal fixes for the harmony dryer you might be having a problem with your blower motor. To check, remove your dryer vent and start the dryer. If you have no air moving then your blower motor has stopped. When the blower motor is not running then your dryer will not heat. This is one of a few models that have a seperate motor for the blower so most techs will miss this. Good luck to you,
