Sounds like the heating element has gone south
if you open up the dryer you can check continuity across the element but make sure power is unplugged

If a dryer is not heating - and it is electric, then the first thing to check are the breakers. It runs on a double breaker and half of the breaker may be good (allowing for other functions other than heat). Half breaker will run motor and timer but the element needs both breakers (220v). If that is not the issue, then element may need to be inspected.

Dryer not heating. Originally worked for 10 minutes then stopped. Cleaned inside - spotless. Installed brand new ignitor (glow type) old one was fine - didn't need changed. Worked for 10 minutes...


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

My dryer runs but it won't heat up to dry the clothes. It worked until my sister brought it to me yesterday. Could something have happened to it during travel?


Classic, Check your breaker box. It will be the one with the double breaker. If one side pops it will run with no heat. Rate me if I helped. I just saved you a 100 bucks or so.

Will not heat


Check your house fuse/circuit breaker panel. The dryer runs off 2 circuits -one for heat and one for the motor.

I have a Sears Kenmore Model 65862 that now does not heat. Worked yesterday but not today.


Looking for the two circuit breakers or fuses since this is a 220 dryer that would need two 110 inputs.

My Dryer Will Not Warm Up Or Heat Up At All!!!


Hope this info helps, ps don't forget to give me a rating thanks!!


For an electric dryer that runs but doesn’t heat, follow this repair roadmap:
Flip the circuit breaker off and then back on. Electric dryers run on a two-pole, 240v breaker. A common problem is for one of the legs to break which cuts the 240v that the elements need to heat up but it still supplies the 120v for the motor. The result is that the dryer runs but doesn’t heat.
If the breaker checks out, then it’s time to do some surgery. Unplug the dryer and open it up.
. Use your ohm meter to test the thermostats. All should show continuity.
Measure the resistance of the heating element with your ohm meter. Normal readings are in the neighborhood of 30 ohms.
In rare cases, the centrifugal switch in the motor can fail which breaks the power circuit for the heating elements. If this is the case, then the entire motor must be replaced since the centrifugal switch is built into the motor.

I have a Maytag Neptune Elect dryer MDE9700, that won't heat. It worked fine until yesterday. A breaker kicked off, I reset the breaker and now dryer will work it just doesn't heat up. There is no error...


Your heat strip has burned out, shorted against the frame, and kicked the breaker. Take off the back, it is not hard to replace. Be sure all breakers are turned off.
