I have a Samsung dv220aew xaa dryer that does not produce heat. I've replaced the heating element, the thermistor, and the thermostats with the problem remaining, what could be the problem?


ARE U GETTING THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF VOLTAGE AT THE CONNECTION,? i VE SEEN IN SOME CASES WHERE THE MACHINE ONLY GETTING 120 AND WILL RUN BUT NOT CREATE MUCH HEAT? THE DRYER USES 120 TO RUN THE CYCLE BUT NEEDS A FULL 220 FOR THE HEAT CYCLE TO WORK, THUS IF UR MISSING VOLTAGE IT WILL NOT HEAT? ANOTHER CULPRIT COULD BE A BAD TIMER STUCK ON COOL DOWN OR FLUFF CYCLE AND WILL PRODUCE NO HEAT?

My dryer is running, but doesn't have heat.


All electric dryers use 220-240 volts of electricity to run. The elements that make the heat are what actually need the 220 volts, the motor that turns the drum only uses 110. If you have a fused service disconnect box, replace both fuses, as one side is gone. 220/240 is made up of two 110/120 lines coming in, if one fuse, one side, blows, then all that's left is the 110/120 needed to run the drum motor, but no 220/240 to run the heat element. If there is no service disconnect then check the breaker than runs the dryer, flip it off and then back on to see if that makes any difference. Sometimes it will. Then there's the possibility that the hi-limit thermostat on the heat chamber in the machine blew, letting the drum run, but not feeding the coils. If you're not real handy with tools you may want to call a repair tech for this one.

Dryer won't heat


The back panel doesn't come off for service!!! Most heating and control components are available behind the kick panel below the main dryer door..
With electric dryers my normal train of thought in diagnostics is to start with source of power. Do I have 220 volts available at the terminal board where the electric cord is connected??? Quite often I find a blown fuse, etc to cause it to stop heating as the motor will run fine on 120 volts as thats all it requires, but the unit will not heat with out 220 volts to the element..
best of luck, and have fun,
ttfn

Will run but has no heat. replaced element,thermastat and fuse


okay, you need to check to see if you are getting full voltage, see your dryer will run on 120 but if it is not getting hot, then you are losing 120.

see from left side of outlet to middle you should get 120
from right side to middle you should get 120
total voltage is 220-240 volts in order for dryer to heat

Had thermostates checked and still no heat


How does the dealer know if they are good? Did he come to your home to check it? and if so why did he not check for power to the element? If your heater and t-stats are good the only thing that will prevent your heater from operating is the centrifugal switch on the motor. that's provided your t-stats and heater are in fact good. And you have the full 220 volts suppy to the dryer. Keep in mind the heating element is the only thing that's runs on 220 if you only have 120 powering the unit your timer and motor will still run. you can check the power by removing the plug cover on the dryer, you will have a red,white,and black wires from white to black you will read 120, from white to red you will read 120 and from red to black you will read 220 if you don't read 220 between black and red or 120 from red or black to white you have a power issue and nothing wrong with the dryer. Good luck hope this helps you

MY drier heating element shows 9 ohms continuity, it also shows 120 volts into and out of it when the drier is running. But the heating element wont heat up?


Have you checked the voltage at the outlet? You're supposed to read 220-240 VAC at the heating element. Your dryer heating circuits require at least 220 VAC to work. The motor, however, only uses 120 VAC. That's why your dryer may be running, but the heating circuits aren't heating. I would go back and check your outlet. You may be missing one leg of the 220 service, or have a loose, burned, or broken wire in the plug or terminal block (on the back of the dryer). Let me know what you find. I hope this helps you.

Maytag dryer runs, does not heat


check for continuity in the thermal fuse, also check heating element. make sure you have disconnected the power first. if this is a 220 volt machine make sure you are getting 220 to the machine. if one leg of the voltage has dropped out the motor will run but unit will not heat
