The problem happened after an indoor flap to the outside was installed backwards, preventing the air to vent out.
One cycle was done like this. After cycle was done, clothes were still very wet. I fixed the flap so that it lets the air vent outside properly.
We then started the dryer once again and the dryer ran for about 10 minutes and then stopped on its own.
Now, when we turn it on, the heating element heats up, but nothing else seems to be working. The temperatur is set to Regular for the above. I've tried on the temperatur setting for Air Fluff and Low setting, and same result, except for Air Fluff, I don't hear a click that I hear for the Regular setting.
Also, when element heats up, a distinct burning smell can be detected (the kind of smell when an electric heater has not been turned on for a long time and dust has accumulated on the elements).

Re: Crosley CDE6500AZW heating, but drum not rolling
OK Here is what I think happened. I have heard of this before. You melted a wheel and that broke the belt. This is a simple dryer to repair and parts are not that much. Well worth fixing. Start by popping the top remove the front then get the drum out and inspect the damage.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Make sure the setting on the remote is correct . Sun symbol for heating. Make sure the filters are clean. On heating, the indoor unit will 1/2 open the flap but the fan shouldn't start. The outdoor unit should start and if working properly, will be blowing cold air. The indoor unit will open the flap fully and the indoor fan will start once it gets hot then you should feel warm air. If the outdoor unit is blowing warmish air, I would say the reversing valve coil has failed or one of the indoor temp or pipe sensors are faulty. If a sensor fails, a "CH" error should appear on the display.
How on earth can you get hot air or hot water from very cold outside air? How does a heat pump make this heat out of cold air?
When certain gases change their state from a liquid to a gas or from a gas to a liquid the magic happens.
A heat pump can do some pretty amazing things, when it comes to making heat. To understand the way they work, you must first understand what happens when certain gases change from a liquid state to a gas and back to a liquid again. To simplify it a bit we need to look at a basic air conditioning system. The refrigerant in an airconditioning system is changing to a liquid in the outdoor condenser. The compressor compresses the gas forming a hot gas. As this gas cools under high pressure it changes into a liquid form.
Inside the indoor coil the liquid is pushed through a small hole or orifice. When it comes out the other side it rapidly changes it’s state to a gas as the pressure suddenly drops. The rapid pressure drop changes the refrigerant to a very cold gas. Air flowing over the cold gas inside the pipes makes the air cool and provides air conditioning.
Now for a heat pump the process is much the same, only coils are just switched by used a reversing valve in the outdoor condenser unit. Instead of the heat being purged to the outside from the condenser unit, the indoor unit then becomes the condenser coil. The outdoor coil becomes the cold coil and cools the outside. This is why if it is very cold outside the unit will have to run in air conditioning mode for a short time to defrost the outside cold coil. When this happens the system will usually have electric heat inside to run and keep the indoor air warm.
The reality is that a heat pump is really no more than an air conditioner running in reverse. Through the magic of using refrigerants, a heat pump can then run many times more efficiently than straight electric heat. A careful heat loss/gain should always be performed by a qualified service person before any sizing of a unit. Too large or too small of a heat pump system can make it inefficient and possibly cause it to be very uncomfortable. The longevity of the unit can also be affected by sizing and installation. Be patient and look carefully for the best contractor to install your system.
A properly designed and installed heat pump system can give you many years of comfort and efficiency. If you look for and find the contractor that can do the job right you will get many trouble free comfortable years from your heat pump unit.
If you have a heat pump the electric heat is the emergency heat. Short explanation of a heat pump is it switches the jobs of the indoor and outdoor coils. So instead of taking heat from inside and moving it outside it works backwards picking up heat from outside and moving it indoors. Probably an electrical problem.
Water in the drum anytime after drying a load of clothes is not normal.
Was the load prior to you having found the condensation fully dried? If not, check for lint in the vent system and make sure that air is coming out of the vent (the flap or louvers on the vent cap should open fully on a short vent line). Even so, this would not account for a small amount of standing water in the drum.
The first thing that came to mind was outside air being drawn in through the vent. If you have air conditioning and a well-sealed house, the warm, moist air hitting the cool drum (in a relatively dry atmosphere) may cause condensation. Check the outside vent to ensure that the vent cap flap (or louvers) is (are) closing all the way. Convection or air flow from the basement to a vent fan in an upper level might cause this.
The blinking light is because the unit is waiting for the outdoor unit to come on. If in heating mode, the indoor fan will not run before enough pressure and therefore heat has built up. You should check that the indoor air return sensor is not faulty and therefore preventing the outdoor unit from coming on.
unit should be locked out on low temp and your electric heat should be running. is your installer a service tech or just an installer that could also be the problem if he is a service tech it would work correct when he left
