Your vent is probably clogged. Or your lint screen is dirty. The draft is enduced so, if it can't blow air, it wont pull air across the clothing.

Heat cuts out shortly after dryer starts. Have taken apart several times. First replaced thermal cut off (tested bad) and thermostat. Element ok. Good airflow. Dryer seems to heat up very quickly and very...


Sure can!
Most Kenmore style dryers have a heating element that has a long wire coil inside it, (often there are two wires or elements inside one housing). Regardless, if you have carefully checked the air exhaust, and you find it is "perfect" ( means no back-up heat from a plugged or impeded air flow) and you have determined the air flow inside the machine is like new, ( no back up there either), then what has possible happened is the wire heating element has wiggled loose and is touching itself, thereby shorting out and making super heat.
The wire coils are usually held loosely in place with white ceramic rings, to keep them from touching the metal housing. If you carefully remove the heating element "box or "tube" and look inside , you may be able to see the problem. Testing it with an ohm meter will not work, it will simply test OK. The element is made to heat at a certain temperature according to it's length, if it touches itself, the elecrttricity will take the shortest route and may make your element glow white hot in one spot. Be blessed.

Switched bottom oven on, then noticed it had tripped fuse for cooker in main fuse box. Swithed it back on and it wouldn't heat up. The fan and light were ok! Top ove? grill works ok still.


sounds like you have a heating element burned out. Look real close at the heating elements and you may see a hole burned in the metal tube. This is a sure sign of a bad element. Some elements are easy to unplug. Others a real pain. Always unplug and or turnoff breaker prior to unscrewing anything. If you fine the bad element just unplug and other element may work OK. Best to get your model number and search net for new element.

Dishwasher is running through cycles ok but water is not heating so only cold cycles.


Hi


The water is not heating as the heating element has gone bad or a fuse has blown which is preventing heating element to turn on. To check the heating element you'll need to turn off the dishwasher, unplug it. After unplugging it check the heating element formineral deposit on it, clean the deposits using a soft brush and a cleaning solution(Don't scrub the elemnt hard). If this doesn't resolves the issue then remove the panel and examine all the wirin connections to the heating element. Now, use a multimeter and check for the resistance reading(ohms, Rx1) for the heating element. The multimeter should display between 1200-1600 ohms or 1.2K ohms. If it is less than 1200 then you'll need to get the heating element replaced. Also, check for any blown fuse around the element. This should resolve your issue.

Thanks

Ok got a GE DVL223EB1WW Insufficent Heat


Yes think so , what should happen is element heats up controlled by fan blowing cold air across it this then heats to whatever thermostat is set to switch at, which in turn controls heat level..Air is then exausted via hose to waste unless its a condenser drier which then turns the steam back to water / which is collected in a waste condesate drum..hope this is helpful...

Kenmore series 70 dryer will not heat up replaced heating element thermostats check ok with ohm meter


If heating element was replaced and still no heat, Then what I would do is test the voltage current in the wiring and see if there is actually power to the element.

All parts to make dryer heat are:
heating element
thermal fuse
thermostat
timer

any one of these units can be faulty

Dryer tumbles won't heat


The problem could be related to one of the following; Not enough power from the house, a bad or broken heating element, a bad thermal fuse, or a brake in the wiring.

Solution
Check the house voltage for 220-240
Do a continuity test on the heating element.
Do OHM reading on thermal fuse.
Check wiring to heating element.
