If it's a gas dryer, check the thermal fuse in the rear in unit,, a lead on each end,,white plastic with a hump on it,,,careful it's live if unit is plugged in

    Ignitor should be at the front of the burner unit,,, should gloww when you turn on dryer,,,,if the burner is not getting any gas to it,, check that thermal fuse

  • ride_guy_69 Apr 21, 2009

    The burner mounts inside of the cabinet, under the drum,,you basically have to dismantle the case to get access to it,,,some dryers have an inspection hole by the burner,,the thermal fuse is usually located on the back of the dryer and would appear as a piece of plastic approx 1-1/2 inches by 1/4 inch and is held in place by one screw. If this fuse does not have continuity,,there's your problem

Admiral dryer timer not turning and no heat


It could be the high temp fuse on the element and the timer not turning depends doyou have it on the auto dry because it will not advance if it is not heating because the sensors are not detecting a decrease in the humidity levels because the element not working.

Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is faulty replace it. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. Replace the heating elements.

Dryer Tunrs on and runs with no heat and timer never moves


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...

Hotpointdryer timer problem


There are two coils in the heating element, and if one burns out, the timer will not advance in automatic dry. The timer should still advance when using manual (or timed) dry.

Why no heat


Absolutely. A bad timer will not initiate the element function once the load has started. there is a point on the timer board where, the timer sends a heat signal to the element and it also controls the shutdown signals as well. the high limit thermostat controls the actual temp once the timer initiates the heat signal. if the timer is bad or malfunctioning, the element will malfunctioning as well.

Replacing the timer will fix this issue.

Dryer turns on. no heat and timer does not advance?


sounds like glow bar or photo sensor not working properly. should be access panel to veiw ignition system, if glow bar turns white hot when dryer is started, try to clean face of photo senser and re-start. unplug dryer before cleaning sensor. timer will not start until dryer comes up to temp.
