Dryer not drying


another user's Q&A for the same issue try that or call may tag, they are supper helpful

Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:

Proper Voltage

If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.

8574d88.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

d5b5af3.jpg Thermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
77d6bd4.jpg Thermostat

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.

    Timer motor


    A defective timer motor could also cause your dryer to not heat up. Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is no longer functioning as it should, replace either the entire motor assembly, or just its motor.

    Electric LG DLEX2801W (steam dryer) not heating.


    Hello & Welcome to FixYa


    If you have already cleaned the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair. It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    Hello, welcome to FixYa.

    Based on your post I understand you have a Whirlpool dryer that you stated "
    set the timer and press the start button, you can hear the timer running but, the drum doesn't and the heating elements don't heat", correct ?

    Having said that, by far and away the most common and the first thing I'd look for on these dryers is the fuse which is located on the blower housing, not likely the timer or start switch.

    **Unplug the dryer from the wall before performing any service or removing any panels...safety first**

    You can use the link below for a tutorial video to locate, test and replace the fuse that is specific to your model.

    **please check the part with an ohm meter or "jump it out" (if you know how, if not, check the second link it will show you) before replacing it...the timer or start switch is possible, just not as likely as I mentioned**

    I have a kenmore elite dryer model # 11070952990 that will not heat up, I replace the glow bar ignitor, I don't know what i'm missing.


    Check the thermal fuse. You can temporarily bypass it by hooking its two wires together then see if it heats.

    The dryer will not heat,I don't have a manual and am trying to find out where the heating element is.


    Hi lhatcher2003..

    Here are a few things to check:
    ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
    Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
    Check your Wiring
    Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
    Check the Door Switch
    If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.
    Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
    Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
    You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
    If the heating coil is ok, then:
    You can check the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
    If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse as it is faulty.
    If you have an ohm meter then you can test the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse,
    then you do not have to tape the wires together as described above.
    To test your thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse remove the wires from the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse and check for continuity, if you DO NOT have continuity then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse.
    DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST AS THIS COULD CAUSE A FIRE BECAUSE YOU HAVE REMOVED THE SAFETY.
    Check your blower wheel to make sure it is secure to the shaft and not plugged with lint,socks,etc.
    If the thermal fuse overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset.
    You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, remove both wires from the thermal fuse and put the test probes to each of the ends of the thermal fuse, if no continuity then replace the thermal fuse.
    A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat.
    Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
    If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

    There is a failure in the circuit of the heated oxygen sensor-bank 1 sensor 2. I don't know how to check the fuse since I don't know where it is located.


    If you're getting a code for a heated oxygen sensor circuit problem, replace the sensor. I don't think I've ever seen a fuse be the problem. Bank 1 is located at the back of the engine compartment, close to the firewall. Sensor 2 is the sensor after the catalytic converter.

    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.

    It seems I need to replace one of the thermal fuses in my GLEQ2152ES1 dryer. (The tub spins but there is no heat.) I re-set the circuit breakers for the house (just in case) but no change. I don't know...


    Hi debbie carls...
    Your probably right, it could be the thermal fuse/thermistor/thermostat.
    I will supply you with what you need to know, but you have to decide if it is too difficult for you to do.
    I use this info below for when the dryers are not heating, some of it will apply to your situation.
