Check the thermal fuse on the dryer.
Remove the rear panel.
The thermal fuse is located on the exhaust vent.
It is about 1 and 1/2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. It is white in color.
It is at the left side of the exhaust vent outlet.

Samsung DV422 No heat already replaced heating element

I would hate to ask a question and be left hanging, so I'll toss a couple of ideas your way. I'm sure you did already, but check your incoming power again. It is a 220vac input. If you have a voltage tester, make sure you have both 110vac phases. If you have power, since you changed everything else, my next guess would be the temperature selector switch. If I could see an electrical print, I'd tell you where to jumper it out. If your switch is in the " air fluff" setting, you will not get heat.

The heat stopped working on my Bosch WTL 5100 dryer (the dryer turns around just fine). I cleaned out the condenser filter, then opened up the back and pressed the red reset button. It worked -- once.

are u getting the full 240 voltage in some machines it uses 2 settings to run and to heat? u might get 120 for running it but the other 120 to run heat> thus u get it running but no heat? other wise u may have a bad heating element or hi-lo thermostat or the thermal cut off fuse, u can check with multimeter and u can buy cheap multimeter at places like harbor freight for 5 bucks

Model 66944 Electric Kenmore Dryer has no heat. Runs but doesn't get warm. Check basement fuses and they are fine. What else can I do does this model have fuses on board?

your heating element is out,or one of your hi and low thermostat, or possiby a burned wire leading to these items,best option is to hire a professional,this can all be tested with a tester

The dryer is no longer heating up to dry clothes. it was fine one load ago and now it's not working. the coil is not clogged and there was no excess lint blocking anything.

The first thing to check is the power coming to the dryer. If you have fuses instead of breakers, make sure both fuses are good. Even if only one is bad the coils wont heat up. If you have power, then check the small "cricket" switches inside the rear cover to the dryer. To check them, unplug the dryer, locate the small disk(s) with wires connected to it that is attached to the housing for the heater coils. unplug the 2 wires, then check the disk with a continuity tester or ohm meter set on ohms. there may also be a fuse with 2 wires ( about an inch long fuse) attached to the heater housing, check it for continuity also. the fuse is usually the problem, but not always. Hope this helps . Robin

Possible blown dryer thermal fuse

to check thermo fuse set digital meter to a low resistance setting typical 200 " omega symbol" on most digital meters the 200 setting also has an audio beep for continuity which means that if the fuse is good it will beep and also show on the display a zero out, and if fuse is bad there will be no beep and the display will show a 1. good luck.

Horn not working looking for fuse

First check fuse then relay. If trouble finding obtain repair manual.
Basic diagnostic method is to start at the horn(s). There should be two wires. One is negative the other positive. If connections good. You will need a voltage tester and a jumper lead. A simple 12 volt bulb can be used as a tester. Pull one of the horn wires and attach tester then attach other tester lead to negative. Test horn. If no indication repeat with other horn wire (don't confuse horn connections). If voltage present Horn defective. Next check for voltage at relay. If voltage in to relay but not out replace relay. If no voltage in to relay replace fuse. If still not found then problem is with horn switch or wires between.

Dryer has no heat on any setting after house fuse blew.

We got the problem with our dryer figured out. After checking possible solutions on-line, we checked the power going into the dryer with a ohm tester and discovered we weren't getting full power that we expected. Just after changing the fuses in the house the first time we heard a snap sound but the fuses appeared to be fine, but no heat to the dryer. When we discovered we weren't getting full power we used the ohm tester to test the fuses indiviually and discovered one of the fuses were bad. Put in a new fuse and wala! the dryer is putting out heat. Thank you so much for the service you provide to "do-it-yourselfers" like us!
