SOURCE: Heating element Zanussi washing machine

remove the back, the element is at the bottom of the drum tis maybe a split cabinet, where the lid comes off the it splits down the middle like cracking an egg, loads of screws, hard to describe, also 2 at bottom at the side in the middle, behind 2 plastic lugs, when removed the back half of the cabinet comes away, not an easy job until you have seen it done if you really are stuck try and send me an e mail address and i will send you a drawing, then you will see its easy, i am an engineer of 20 years and done loads, its easy job to do once you know how to split the cabinet

SOURCE: kenmore stack unit dryer not heating

Dryers usually have 2 thermal sensors a low temperature sensor and a high temperature sensor. The parts are inexpensive and if one or both are bad, they will keep the dryer from heating.

The way to check them is to use an OHM meter to see if they are OPEN. If you are using a Digital ohm meter, the setting will most likely read OL for overload.

It is most likely the low temperature sensor, but could be either. Replace both. Again, they are inexpensive and easily replaced.

To access them, you have to get to the back of the dryer and remove the panel. UNPLUG POWER before taking the back panel off. You will see 2 small rount (quarter sized) pods attached by sheet metal screws to a vent stack. One at the top and one close to the bottom. The wires should have push on connectors.

Remove the wires and check each with an ohm meter to be sure.

That is your most likely culprit.

Have FUN!

You are definitely right. The heating element needs replacement. So, go ahead.

Continues to blow the high temp stat. I clean the blower and replaced the venting. I also replaced the heating coil the dryer heats up for a load and then it stopss heating. I test the high temp stat


Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Zanussi white knight dryer - the dryer is not heating up. i have pressed the red reset button the back but no heat? the drum still rotates.

It is possible the heater element is faulty or a thermostat problem.
You need to test the element and stat's with a meter to check for continuity.

Clothes dryer

These t'stats are in series with the element monitoring temp's at different locations and are rated for different temperatures. When they are "satisfied", they close the circuit and allow power to the element. When dis-satisfied they "open" the circuit, thereby killing power to the element. If you are reading infinity on one or both of these t'stats when they are room temp, it indicates a failed component and must be replaced. Don't forget to OHM out your element, too. If you read anything other than infinite resistance, it's OK.

There is a thermostat inside the machine just inside and top, put your head in and look up. Took my whole machine apart before finding the wire which led to it!! It should be Normally Closed (NC) and cuts the power to the heating element when too hot or broken! Hope this helps.
