Yes. The heating element is controlled by an internal bias thermostat that regulates the temperature that you have the dryer set for. The heating element is not supposed to stay on continuously or the unit would overheat. The thermostat regualtes the internal temperature to prevent damage to the applaince and/or your clothes.

Dryer is cool not getting hot?


1. Close the dryer door and press the "Start" button for at least one second. Some dryer brands require the button to be pressed for several seconds. If the drum tumbles, you can eliminate the possibility of a problem with the electrical circuit that supplies the motor.
2. Check all the connections on the back of the dryer. Many dryers have two electrical circuits--one for the heat and one for the tumbling motor. If the motor works, but there is no heat, check to see if the larger plug is plugged into its receptacle. Your dryer may have two plugs--one small regular household plug and one larger 240-volt plug for the heat. Both must be plugged in for the dryer to work properly. The larger, three-pronged 240-volt plug will not fit in a normal household outlet; it needs a special dryer outlet. The plug cannot be cut down to fit.
3. Check the circuit breakers or fuse panel if the dryer runs but there is no heat.

Whirlpool electric dryer - looks like a WED5200T but no model number on the unit. The drum turns and air blows from the vent, but the timer has stopped working and there is no heat.


you have a white strip on the back of your dryer un plug your dryer first.....then un plug the strip and hook the two wires together that will allow the heat to start again.....the timer shouldnt have anything to do with the heat....turn it on and put your ear to the knob and you should here a clock sound if not your timer is bad

Coils get hot


Hi, as soon as you turn your dryer on, power is sent to these heat strips and they will glow red hot. This is normal. They will kick on and off through the drying cycle by several thermostats in the unit so it will not over heat. Nothing to worry about as you have 240 volts going to them.
Sincerely,

Dryer will spin but not dry , heat element is fine


Try replacing the high limit switches if the element is fine. The limit switches will not allow power to the heat strips if they are blown. They are the little silver buttons on the heat strip. There are usually two wires connected to them one coming from the controls and one from the heat strip itself

The dryer doesnt get hot enough to dry clothes


Pull the dryer out and remove the lint hose . Turn on the dryer and feel if there is good air flow and if you feel heat . If there is good air flow and heat , dry a load of clothes , to see if they dry normally .
If there is not good air flow , then the blower wheel is probably stripped and needs to be replaced . If there is good air flow and heat , then the problem is in the vent ducting , between the dryer and to where it vents to the outside . Dryer could be pushed back too far , causing the hose to " kink " , restricting the air flow to the outside .
Remember , a dryer either heats or doesn't heat . If no heat , then a dryer problem exists . If heat , but dryer does not dry , then a vent problem is the cause ( except for maytag , which the blower wheel sometimes strips out ) .

My electric trips out when I switch the tumble dryer on


Sounds like the plug cord is wired wrong on the dryer, or the breaker is too small or going out. Or the heat strip could need to be replaced.You should have a 30 amp breaker for the dryer. Check the heat strip then your breaker.
