    Thanx for getting back so prompt. I think it is fixed. The vent hose was almost completly full of lint. After a thorough cleaning so far so good.

    Is there a "low" heat setting, too? Sounds like the circuitry that applies voltage to the heating coils is bad. Is the heat setting controlled by a knob or by touch-buttons?

LG Dryer low heat doesn't work


It may be as simple as checking your lint filter.
If you use fabric softeners sheets, they tend to clog the lint filter holes. Washing it with soap and water will restore it back to normal and will allow the circulation that the dryer needs to properly dry your clothes.

Kennmore Elite HE4 no heat on low or extra-low setting


Assuming this is a gas dryer, it is likely the igniter has failed. The igniter plate has to heat up to glowing in order to heat up the thermocouple that turns on the gas valve.

Hi, I have a Kenmore dryer (110.86873100) - the dryer has a 'fabric care knob with three settings - low, medium & high. The dryer does not heat on the 'high' setting at all, when I use the 'medium' or...


First off.. befor we talk about changing parts you need to verify that your circuit breakers are set properly. Manually push the dryer CB to the off position... and PUSH to off with conviction then turn it back on again. Test your high heat setting once again. If it works you had one of 2 CB's tripped. If it still shows the same symptoms then there are a couple of suspects.

1. The 155 deg thermostat

2. Possibly one of the two electrical legs of the heating element is open.

3. The timer & resistor has a problem.

All of the above can be isolated with a meter.

Thanks for using FixYa!

There is no difference in drying between medium and high setting.


You only need a certain amount of heat and air to evaporate a given amount of water. If you don't notice any difference, use the medium setting. You would notice a difference with a larger load.

Whirlpool commercial gas dryer - heating problem


Check the voltage to the switch when turned to high and the power button pushed on. If you are not getting any power there then the setting switch is bad replace it at repairclinic.com

Dryer Heats on High all the time


I don't think it is the heating elements. You have checked out all the important stuff. Is there power coming from the controls on medium and low. It sounds like this is the problem.

Frigidaire Dryer takes too long to dry.


First thing I would do is to take the drum out of the dryer and make sure the back is not all clogged up with lint. That is a very common problem with Frigdaire dryers. The back is where the dryer draws the heat from and it sounds like you have plenty of heat. The only place the heat will go is up and that may be why you are geting burn marks. I wold also clean out the front where the lit filter is that to gets blocked up. I think if you check all that ad clean it out good the dryer should work just fine.
