    Which way should the drum be turning clockwise or counter clockwise and what is the part number of the thermal overload switch.



    Thanks Mike

Yes Mike there is. First check the wiring to the back of the dryer and the terminal block inside the back. The likely problem however, is a thermal overload switch located underneath the top of the dryer at or near the drum. You can bypass it and see if it works. If so, replace it for abotu 20 dollars. If not, your next area would be the element itself. Check it for continuity or take it out of the cage and visually inspect it. I am assuming the drum does work and is turning but like you said, no heat. Let me know about this and we will go further. Hopefully, this will take care of it.

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

Why isn't the dryer heating up? How old is this dryer, and should I call a repair person or buy a new dryer?


I don't go out ant Google peoples machines her. You need to do it, but no heat almost always means a hilimit switch or the element. Both are fairly easy to fix. You need an ohm meter or voltage meter and a battery to check a hi limit switch, bit just your eyes to check an element. Gonna have to pull the back panel off either way. Really not hard. If you see that the element is broken, replace it. If element is not broken, test the limit switches by using an ohm meter, or test it using a battery and low voltage light tester and battery to see if the circuit is open or closed. Closed means the switch is bad and just MAYBE another prob but not likely.

My beko dcrs76w condensing tumble dryer was blowing out cold air so we repaced element & thermostat buts still not fixed. We have cleaned out filters aswell. Any clues as to what the problem could be?


In most dryer, there is a thermal fuse and open from overheating. Generally, it installed on the dryer's exhaust duct. Typically, you must remove the back panel of a dryer to access the fuse.

Why wont dryer heat up after changing out coil ?


most dryers are 220. its possible your breaker is half tripped. try cycling the breaker.. you should get 220 across it while its running. (Be careful).

Why would the Dryer not heat after an international move from Austrailia 230V 50 hz to Thailand 220V 50 Hz, when programs, air movement, evrything else functions properly?


Your problem is one electric leg has no power. You are getting power for a single need. But you need double that power for the heating need.
like 110. And. 110. Equals 220 Soo 110 is supplying one need ,that needs only 110 But the heating coils need 220 that is where the second leg comes in... Be sure bothe breakers have powers going out. Into dryer

If this is a 220 VAC dryer use a voltmeter at the wall plug. Chcking from common, usually the leg with the angled blade, to each of the hot legs, each with the straight blade. You need to have 110 VAC in both of these. If there is only 110 at one of the legs the motor will run but the element will not heat. If you find only one leg has 110 VAC try a new circuit breaker in the breaker box. If the breaker is bad it will appear to reset, but still not send current. If you have 110 on both legs check in the dryer for a burned off wire at the timer or element.

I have a electric dryer Model WED5810SW0 THAT I WAS TOLD I COULD CONVERT TO 120V from 240v is this true and if so how do i do this?


If you consider doing this the first thing is SHUT THE MAIN BREAKER OFF. Use an auxiliary light source to see when working in a dead panel. Always keep in mind an ARC FLASH ACROSS HOT MAINS HAS ENOUGH HEAT TO PEAL THE SKIN OFF OF YOU. Before an explanation of how to do it you should keep in mind that this is for a single receptacle only. If any other receptacles are on the same circuit they will also be changed to 240 volt receptacles and if you plug any 120 volt device into them, the 120 volt device will be destroyed. That said OK, any 120 volt outlet can be changed to 240 volt by removing the 120 volt circuits neutral, re identifying the white wire with red or black phase tape and connecting it to a new 2 pole 15 amp breaker. The maximum that this circuit will now load up to is, on #14 wire at 80% = 12 amps at 240 volts. The 120V receptacle must be changed to a 15A - 240V receptacle so that 120 volt devices can not be plugged into it. Never use 2 single pole breakers together because code requires that on a fault trip both legs of the 240V circuit must be disconnected simultaneously.

Voltage converter buying guide. Voltage Transformer Buying guide.Voltage converters also known as voltage transformers are devices that convert foreign electricity to power devices from different parts of the world. A step down voltage converter is a 220 to 110 volts converter. A step up converter is a 110 volts to 220 volts converter. Our 2-way converters are voltage transformers that convert power from both 220 to 110 volts and 110 to 220 volts. They also work with 100 volts, 110 volts, 120 volts, 220 volts and 240 volts. This model is a 2 way voltage converter / voltage transformer available in many different sizes including 100 watts, 200 watts, 300 watts, 500 watts, 750 watts, 1000 watts, 1500 watts, 2000 watts, 3000 watts and 5000 watts.

Will run but will not heat up


If the dryer runs, but does not heat, the first thing you need to check is the wall receptacle for the proper input voltage. A reading across the two hot leads (left and right slots) should read 220-240 VAC. If this reading is incorrect, check your breaker panel. Some homes have the dryer circuit on two breakers, vice one single 220 breaker. If the voltage at the receptacle is good, unplug the dryer and remove the cover on the terminal block in the back of the dryer. Plug the dryer back in and take the same voltage check at terminal block across the RED and BLACK wires. You should see 220-240 VAC if good. If the voltage is bad at the terminal block, but good at the wall receptacle, you have a bad power cord. If the voltage is good at the terminal block, then the problem is internal to the dryer.

NOTE: The reason a dryer will still run if the input voltage is incorrect is because the dryer drive motor only uses 110-120 VAC, while the heating circuits require the full 220 service. So, if you are missing a portion of your input voltage, the dryer may exhibit the symptoms you have.

If your problem is with the dryer heating circuits, the following link explains what to look for and how to troubleshoot:

Pay particular attention to the paragraph that discusses proper ventilation. The number one cause of dryer heat related problems are caused by poorly installed, kinked, or clogged dryer ventilation. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
