Question about Electrolux Dryers

2 Answers

The heating coil went out. I replaced it and the connector was apparently broke which in turn damaged the new coil. I replaced the new on, again, and this time I checked everything before running. It is not heating up so I checked the electric protectors and replaced the one that is the size of a dime. Still no heat. HELP

Hi,

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

The problem may lie in the device that controlls the heating element.

Do you have the right part? do the part numbers match?

I have a Maytag dryer model DG412 that recently stopped heating. I replaced the igniter and it worked for a few minutes then stopped again. When I removed the igniter it broke into pieces.


Usually if it heats for few minutes then doesn't relight one of the coils has gone bad. They come as a pair as you know somake sure you replace both. You have done everything right so far... You do have bad coils though.

I have a DLG0332W everything was having some problems with the drum not spinning went in and clean everything and now it stoped heating just cold air


Hello,
seems to me you may have inadvertently disconnected the heater coils or you may have damaged the coil. Open the machine again, and check all the connections before you buy anything else for it. It could be that simple.

We have had to replace the heating coil that is behind the drum because it snapped. After replacing it, the dryer worked good for a week or 2. Husband took the dryer apart and the coil was broke again....


Hello,

A Heating coil breaking is very unusual, burn out yet, but actual breakage? That is due to excessive vibration (is there a ceramic support / insulator missing where break occurs?), an insulator that has become conductive (if the break occurs at a ceramic support) and is allowing the coil to partially short to chassis / ground. If your drum is off balance (for whatever reason) and causes a lot of vibration, it can cause the coil to resonate (vibrate) and cause a weak spot which ultimately fails.

I have a gas dryer that will turn on but no heat but fuse is good


if the dryer is heating correctly when it's cold and then after running for 15 to 30 minutes then no heat at all you have bad gas coils,when the coils are failing they will work until they heat up then they fail,the coils are on top of the gas valve,take out the two phillips screws,remove the cover,take off the coil one at a time,and pull off the wire connector,install the new coils and put it back together,it's pretty easy to do

Kitchenaid dryer heats for first 15 min


you have bad gas coils.the coils on top of the gas valve need to be replaced,when they are failing,they will work fine until they heat up and then they shut down,when they cool down they will work for a while until they heat up again,the part number is 12001349 and they are around 45 bucks for the both of them,take out the two phillips screws, remove the cover,remove the wire connector do one coil at a time,also the coil with three wires has a metal spacer that stays on the post it slides down onto,sometimes it gets stuck inside the coil you're removing,if it's inside the old coil remove it and slide it back on the post and then slide the new coil down onto the post and plug your wires back on,put the cover back on and the two screws.push on the wire connectors to make sure they pushed on tight and your down.while your in the dryer if you haven't cleaned it out now is a good time to do so,this should be down once a year moreso with gas so you don't have a fire,vac out the dryer,if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow the motor off and blow out the gas tube where the fire lights,remove and clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean out the vent line and the outside vent,if it's a long run from the dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,if you do this your clothes will dry on time,and it will be more energy efficient,the motor and other parts will last longer,if you need anymore help let me know,good luck

Gas......starts to heat then quits minutes later.


Problem is your gas solenoid coils. When they get worn they will open til they get out then shut. They will need to be replaced.

Part number 279834 replaces for most models.

Will not turn on


If you replaced heating coils, and did not space them out properly, they could have went bad again. A weak spot in the coil breaks, and falls down, touching the good one and burning out both of them.

My dryer turns but only blows cold


I just recently tore my dryer apart for the same reason. It seems that my timer got stuck and the dryer was running for almost 20 hours straight and burned out the clip that holds the heating coil to the connector inside the dryer. If you unscrew the back plate from your dryer (please unplug it first), it'll be on the bottom right hand side as you're looking at the back. The heating unit should have 3 or 4 quick disconnect clips and a few small screws holding it to the venting tubes. Remove the clips from the heater unit and then remove the screws, look inside the heating unit at the coils and see if any of them cracked from excessive heat or broke for any reason.
