My dryer turns on and spins and everything but it has no heat to it. Whats wrong with it.

My dryer was working perfectly fine before i moved into my new APT. The first time i tried using it at the new apartment it started just fine and i left it for the whole cycle of 80 mins. I came back to try and take out the clothes to fold and realized nothing was dry. My husband tried switching the power cables on the back but still nothing. HELP

Don't know if you fixed your dryer problem yet.if it worked fine at your old place and now you're having problems at the new house how did you vent the dryer outside?if you hooked your dryer onto a vent line that was there the line could be blocked with lint and popped either the thermal fuse or the high linit thermostat or it's just coincidence that you have a problem right after the move.if you still need help with this let me know and i'll be happy to help you,if you open the door and look around the opening you'll see a tag with the model number,if you send this i can look up your dryer to see what parts are in it.thanks

Jimbo, this dryer uses a cyling thermostat to turn the heater on and off. If your vent is pinched or clogged, or the vent to the outside is clogged, you are going to have long dry times and damp clothes. Try doing a load with the vent disconnected from the back of the dryer. If everything turns out ok, then it's a venting issue. Catriver

Kemnore 80 electric dryer: dryer spins, light works, heat does not work...used multitester on ohm setting to test for continuity on coil and thermal fuse...both seemed to be fine...back to square zero


Hello,

In addation to testing the element and thermalfuse what ya need to check is both of the thermostats that are on left side of teh housing where the heat element fits into,both of those should have zero ohms resistiance,also should check the cycling t-stat there where the thermal fuse (in the blower housing) be sure to not confuse the thermal fuse which is the blower housing with the thermal cutoff which is on the heater housing that and the high limit t-stat are the ones in the heater housing and are the most likely things making the dryer not heat.

If all above checks to be good, the timer, or the motor is whats wrong causing it to not heat.

I have a kenmore elite, model# 11062952100. Everything works fine but there is no heat on any cycle. it is about 5 years old. Whats wrong, cost to fix, is it worth fixing


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

I have a Roper dryer and it just turns off we can


first thing to do is to find out whats wrong with the cord, get to the part of the cord that goes into the machine, wires are loose. a 220volt dryer will not heat if one of the wires are loose. you need to get into machine and make sure wires are tight. this is also a safety hazzard, do not leave machine plugged in until problem is solved

Have you tried to bypass the hi limit switch or the thermal switch. It will work. If it works for a few times, then you will know the switch is bad. I did this on a friend's one time and it solved it. Only cost about 15 bucks. Godd luck and let me know how it turns out.

Dryer not spinning


ok this sounds simple
if the dryer stopped spining there are 4 things to look at
1 the belt for dryer if this snapped the drum will stop spining
2 the dryer wheels these ware down and break off this is what helps keep dryer in a spin straight
3 this is the crucial one the motor siezed up from lack of appliance oil not being added to a regular maintenance
4 the guages has stopped working but i doubt this if it still keeps a timer going round this would not be it you dont have to run dryer to test guages just set guage to a time and see if it rotates with the time on it
the belt you can check your self by pulling down the dryer pan that will show bottom of dryer with belt if its a belt simple maytag can come out and do a replacement and maintenance on the spot
i hope this helped seeing im not there to actually see in person whats actually wrong
