DRYER NOT HEATING. Heat Element test good. No visible breaks. Tested the Thermal fuse it was bad so we replaced it. The dryer worked about 5 minutes. So we tested everything again and the Thermal Fuse and...


Somehow you are not getting enough air through the dryer to maintain a temperature below the thermal high temp cutout temp. or there is a control problem for the heating element so it may stay on the 5 minutes but like an oven the thermostat turns the element on and off. I hope you understand. There may be a relay that turns the element on and off, but the contacts have "frozen" or welded themselves together. If so that's your problem. Or there is another device with a similar problem. Unplug, trace the 220vac wires to controls and the heating element. Double check wiring. the Safety devices may be 110vac rated and 220vac is going through so won't hold the power flow. Hope this helps.

Dryer spins but no heat


Conventional dryers are usually accessed by removing the rear panel. I would think these would be the same. Unplug the dryer and remove wires from heating element. Test for continuity with an ohmmeter. If there is no reading, the heating element is bad. Disconnect wires from the hi temp thermostat and test with an ohmmeter and if no reading it is bad. Sears has these parts available.

Washer heating elent doesnot come on


I would use a voltmeter and test the power to the element. If there is power than the element is probably bad.

My dryer whirlpool still blow cool air but do not heat please tell me what the problem henry le


Bad heating element or bad thermo fuse.
You will have to unplug the dryer and remove the back to access the heating element. The thermo fuse is located on the side of the heating element.
If you don't have a meter to test the element and thermo fuse or just don't know how simply remove them from the dryer and take them to your local appliance repair shop and they can test them for you.

I have a Maytag Neptune Dryer that won't heat. we replaced the thermistor and the control board. What else could it be?


First unplug dryer and test your heating element for continuity with a multimeter if it has more than about 30ohms it is bad.Next check for 220v-240v at the heating element with the dryer running (This is not a test for an amateur. If you are not familiar with electricity I would recommend calling a service tech. If you have 220v-240v there and no heat the heating element is most likely bad. If not then trace the wires back to find the open circuit could be a thermostat or the thermal fuse or just a loose wire/bad connection.

No heat from dryer


there are ways to the element disconnect the power, then get to the element from the back of the dryer. disconnect the 2 wires on the element and use a muti meter. find the ohm section on the meter(it will beep when you connect the test leads) . connect the test leads to the element, if the meter does not do anything the element is bad.
