Most electric dryer problems not heating are due to the heater coil circuit being broken. The wiring can be replaced by the coil kit being purchased from an appliance parts store. Need make and model numbers. Follow directions in package.

SOURCE: Dryer Heats - Drum Turns - Clothes Don't Dry - Dryer Seems To Over Heat

Before ripping into the dryer, with the dryer running, check the vent outside. There should be a rather strong air flow. I'll bet you have little or maybe no air flow. Check behind the dryer to make sure you don't have squished flex duct. If you have flex pipe, try running the dryer for a few minutes with the dryer pulled out into the room to stretch the vent out, and check outside airflow again. Try to eliminate all or as much of the flex stuff as you can, replacing it with aluminum dryer vent pipe. (tape joints with foil duct tape) Clean out remaining dryer vent. (there are special brushes you can buy to clean out vents, but they really only work on ridgid pipe.)

SOURCE: DRYER RACK DOES NOT DRY CLOTHES

try timed dry cycle instead of the auto-sensing setting. In your drum if you have auto dry such as less dry normal dry and more dry, There is a sensor sometimes in the drum and sometimes in the exhaust right after the blower. If in the drum then your clothes brush by this and if moisture is sensed then it keeps on drying. With your rack the clothes can't touch the sensor so it tells your dial to turn and that items are dry which in fact are not. Try this and see how it does.

Is it heating up at all? I just fixed my vision hd hoover 381 dryer by replacing the heating element. Email me if you think this might be you (matskm@gmail.com). When the dryer is running, feel the metal heater housing (carefully) on the back (silver bulge) if your model is like mine.

Our model medt5870tw0 maytag dryer does not dry properly


First , remove the vent hose from the dryer to see if good air flow is coming out the dryer vent . If not , could have a bad blower wheel . If so , then check the vent hose AND vent to outside to see if blocked . A dryer will either heat or not heat . Since your dryer heats , try drying a load without the vent hose connected to the dryer and see if it heats fine (telling you , a vent problem is apparent . Sometimes a dryer is pushed too far back , kinking the vent hose also .

T^o much lint in duct work, causing moisture and not allowing cloths to dry. Vacuum out duct work in dryer and from dryer to outside of home.

No heat, will turn on and spin with cool air only. does not dry clothes.


Okay, let me try to solve this with three possible solutions:
EASY AND CHEAP: Check the hose, the lint filter and the vent for obstructions. If the air is not getting out then the safety switch in the dryer will tell the element not to heat up. Without this safety switch the dryer becomes a fire hazard (and that's a whole other FixYa problem!). Make sure the hose is not crimped or clogged and that the outside vent is opening properly.
HARDER AND MORE EXPENSIVE: The heating element may be burned out or have a loose connection. This is a little bit harder fix but can be done without consulting a repairperson. However, if you have little or no experience then don't try that at home.
EASY BUT MOST EXPENSIVE: Buy a new dryer. If you do, see if the company you buy it from will take a trade in. If not, call a small appliance repair shop and see if they would like to buy your machine to repair and resell. This might offset some of the cost of the new dryer.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Dryer not heating Enough


Ceck the vent hose and vent. Make sure these are clear of obstruction. This is tipical of poor venting. The dryer can`t remove the moist air to dry the clothes properly.
