    I replaced the belt recently ( 2 days ago) and now the heat is not working. I hear the air blowing and the drum is moving but no heat at all. I have a gas dryer front loader and I made sure it was plugged in and the gas was on. I also checked to make sure the wires were in place. I did not have to cut wires to replace belt just unclip them so that is not a problem, It was drying fien uptill the point of the belt breaking. Now that is is fixed though there is no heat.

It could be a malfunction heating element, thermostat or both. In most of the cases it's the heating element. Check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on the heater element tags. In case you get this voltage there, you should replace the heating element. In case you can't read the 115/220V on the heater tags: - Check thermostat's for continuity (you should read a low resistance). In case you can't get any measurement. You should replace the thermostat. Good luck!

    Check you input voltage, on back of the unit you should read 110V from one live wire to the neutral,110V from the other live to the same neutral and 220V accross the two live wires. If you don't have the 220V across the two live wires then check the breaker (it usually is a 30amp double throw which must be wired correctly in order to provide the 220V.)

    If the voltage checks OK, then it would be testing for continuity on the element, thermostat and high temp cut-off. Unplug the unit, access the components, remove one lead from each component and test continuity on each of them. Whichever fails to a 0 resistance reading or doesn't beep (in case you have it on audible) then replace such component(s).

Tip

Dryer Taking too Long to Dry Your Clothes?


A very common issue we deal with on FixYa is clothes dryers that are taking too long to dry clothes. Here's a few tips on keeping your drying time to the minimum.
1. Check and empty your lint trap before each load. If air flow is restricted, your dryer will need longer to get the job done. A clean lint trap will allow for maximum intake air to the dryer blower.
2. Check the exhaust ductwork for lint buildup. If the 4" ductwork that carries your warm, moist, lint-laden air to the exterior of your home is blocked with years of lint and moisture, chances are pretty good your dryer is taking longer than it should to get your clothes dry.
  • Disconnect the dryer power cord (and gas line if a gas unit), slide the dryer forward far enough to access the 4" ductwork clamp at the back of the dryer. Disconnect the ductwork at the dryer and separate to inspect both in the dryer exhaust duct and the ductwork as well.
  • Remove all built up lint. You may need to access under the floor, or in the crawlspace, or basement to get at all the areas that lint may be built up. Remember that when there's an elbow (turn) chances are pretty good there's lint in there, so take the time to separate the ductwork where needed to give it a thorough cleanout.
  • Long straight sections of ductwork can be easily cleaned by purchasing a "webster" style pole brush.
  • Clean the exhaust duct of the dryer but be careful not to damage anything inside your dryer
  • Reconnect and turn the dryer on air fluff to blow the rest out.
3. Remove lint build up from inside the machine
  • Turn power off again
  • Remove the front cover of your dryer
  • Remove the front drum support/air duct from the front of the dryer
  • Carefully vacuum the lint out of the dryer with soft brush attachment on your vac. Be careful not to damage any ignitor or electrical items.
  • Clean the inside of the lint trap duct of sediment/ buildup
4. Make sure your washing machine is spinning the water out of your loads correctly. This one is pretty obvious, but it bears mentioning.
If your clothes feel wetter than normal, it's definitely going to take longer to dry. Be sure to wash "like" items. A medium/large load of towels is better than a towel and 5 cotton shirts ( that towel will throw the load off balance and your machine won't spin as fast to get the water out).
5. Medium-sized loads dry faster than mega-large-cram-it-in loads.
The idea of getting all you can into a dryer (or washer) to save time and money will end up costing you both time and money. I've seen this played out many times in my laundromats: You will find that a medium, loosely packed load will dry faster and with less wrinkles and less ironing needed.


Using these guidelines will help keep your drying times to a minimum and also allow your machine to work for many years to come.

Dryer twists and knots up clothes


Many times, many types of Dryer have a variety of paddles. There are so many different ones, without your model, it's hard to know which your has, however, I have known many people that have had these problems.
  1. knots clothing;
    Solution: I have heard and seen a couple tennis balls or even a soft pair of tennis shoes used in the dryer whilst drying clothes keep this from happening. (again, the paddles make all the difference) I myself have always had Maytag, but even they are not what they used to be, however, the shoe trick works when we dry our large blankets and comforters.
  2. Length of drying time;
    Solution: Gosh, there could be many issues, but the first, I would think you either have too small exhaust tube, or it is kinked, smashed or the wrong type. Even the smallest of kink or flattening on many exhaust tubes will greatly effect the output of the exhaust. The only other thing could be overall length of exhaust, and possible clogging in the tube. Have a idea for a fix there as well. (if this is the rpoblem.
If you would like further discussions or ideas, please post here, and be sure to add as much info on dryer as you can, including year purchased and model number.

If the drying time has anything to do with my immediate thoughts (had similar problem when I just moved and reinstalled my own Maytag) I have a great fix to keep it from happening.

Whirlpool has been a good name for some years, in fact, they own Maytag now, so I am sure we can solve your issue as long as it isn't a problem with your particular unit itself as they do make a lemon evey now and again.

Electric drier takes 2 to 3 cycles to dry one normal size load


Have you tried cleaning the actual inside of the drier?
When you use drier sheets the wax on the sheets melts onto your clothes and makes them soft, but the wax often gets stuck in the holes of the drier making it incapable of drying the clothes in one load. Try scrubbing the inside of your drier with some hot water.

Dryer goes with 3-4 cycles to dry load of clothes


unplug the dryer.
Open the top lid.
Remove the front panel.
Inspect the blower wheel attached to the motor.
If it moves on the motor shaft replace it.
If iy does not move on the motor shaft, clean the lint out of the exhaust from the blower wheel to the rear of the dryer.

Dryer not drying clothes


I'm guessing it is electric? Do the clothes get very hot? If not, one or both of your elements may be bad. If it does get hot inside after running for 15mins, then perhaps your exhaust piping is clogged up. Can you tell if the output blowing from your dryer is a weak or powerful flow?
Let me know.
