Re: no heat in dryer
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....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
check out this electric no heat tip...

NORMALLY WHEN A DRYER COMPLETES IT'S DRYING TIME IT WILL GO THROUGH A COOLING DOWN CYCLE,
DRYER WILL START TURNING WITH FAN ON ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN STOP, AFTER A SHORT PERIOD IT WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL UNIT HAS COOLED DOWN, HOPE THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING
It could be a number of things, but i would start with these first:
The thermal fuse is designed to prevent the dryer from overheating. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
There are also a couple of 'thermostats' that could be the problem:
The 'high limit thermostat' is a safety device mounted on the heating chamber and is designed to prevent the dryer from overheating when the exhaust vent is restricted. A restricted vent will cause the high limit thermostat to trip or activate, interrupting the circuit to the heating element or gas valve. The high limit thermostat is not designed to activate repeatedly like a cycling thermostat and will eventually fail causing a no heat symptom. Disconnect the power to the dryer and check the thermostat for continuity with a multi-meter. If there is no continuity then it will need to be replaced and the restricted vent system corrected as well.
Cycling thermostats control the temperature inside the dryer drum. They are designed to "cycle" the heating element on and off to maintain the correct amount of heat. Cycling thermostats are normally located on the blower housing or elsewhere in the internal airflow ducting. Over time, the cycling thermostat can become defective. Disconnect the power to the dryer and check the thermostat for continuity with a multi-meter.
I hope this helps you fix the problem.
Hello, The problem with it not drying is most likely going to be a worn out blower wheel thats slipping and not moving the warm air through the clothes to dry them properly. Always a pretty good sign the blower is slipping is,if you hear a rumble noise from the dryer at start up and also that same rumbling noise when the power stops. So if you hear it at start up...wait 30 seconds and open the door and listen for the rumble noise as drum stops. also you can check where the vent exits the house and see if their is air flow when the dryer is running.
E4A = The drying time has exceeded program time for cycle.
Press Pause Cancel and SELECT buttons for 6 seconds to exit test modes.
Position cycle selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to
HIGH HEAT and touch START. Check for any
thing that would extend dry times such as: no
heat, restricted vent, blower fan blade broken
or loose, dryer installed in closetwith solid door,
or bad connection in moisture sensor bar cir
cuit or dirty bars. If dryer operates normally but
code returns, replace electronic control.
68 = One of the keys (buttons) is stuck closed (active).
Enter function testmode and perform key
(button) test to determine which button is at
fault. Carefully free the and perform the test
again. If button is free but the key struck code
still exists, replace electronic control
Hi There I have this for you to read this should get you on the right track. Let me know how it went. It seems to run foreverIf
your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent
or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns
off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special
thermostat or moisture-sensing system. Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When
the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the
timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer
advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)The
timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the
timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This
cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged,
the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it
doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run
indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the
problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork. Thank you for writing to fix ya. Best Regards Richard
your heating element or the thermostats that control the heating element could be bad. research no heat for your make of dryer, it should show how to ohm the thermostats and element for fault. They should all read 000 when ohmed. 000 being a complete circuit. I have been having thermal fuse problems with my whirlpool dryer, so I'm learning as I go.
not familar with the code but usually wash has a built in thermo stop to wait for water to heat to correct temp,if it works normally in a rince cycle and spins out and finishes properly i would look at heat element or stat,hope this helps
couple things this could be lets start obvious
faulty door switch even though door latches doesnt mean its working properly
bad guages easy to check dont have to run dryer just guages
turn on setting let run threw cycle if it stops on cycle and dont move for a length of time this will be the problem
these 2 things are main causes of why a machine wont work or partcially works at times everything else is easy
