Question about Hotpoint TDC32 Electric Dryer

RE: Not Heating Up (only heats low)

Can anyone suggest possible fix if my dryer only gives out mimimal heat even when set on 'high' with a small load. I have stopped the dryer when in mid cycle and it is warm inside but not hot (even with a small load). I have cleaned filter, emptied water, checked for obstructions etc. and all else seems fine. Thank you!

DLE1310 Dryer not heating up. Tested everything and even replaced everything to be positive. This includes all sensors, heating element, and even the computer board. Still doesn’t heat. There is 120v on...


A classic example of why diagnostics is the key to fixing appliances :>)

In 90% of cases where dryers work and don't get hot, it is either the

High Limit Thermostat (this is a fusible link that may not reset)

Thermal Fuse (this is a fusible link that does not reset)

Thermostat, (this is the one that clicks in an out to give the correct temperature).

or finally the element.

in your case, I suspect the High Limit Thermostat. it is a small circular device fixed to the heater housing somewhere held by two screws and a wire in and a wire out.

All three of your fuses and thermostats are listed here. Check them with a test meter after disconnecting the wires. You should have continuity. If the fuse has failed, no continuity.

Dryer not heating


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer is not heating. This could be a potential issue with your heating element, timer, or thermostat. In order to accurately check each part you would need to disassemble your dryer and test each piece for the proper continuity. This is not a simple DIY job and I would highly suggest contacting a professional technician comes out for proper diagnosis and repair. Best of luck! -Matt

I have a Whirlpool LER4634PQ1 it was working just fine then all of a sudden the dryer just keeps running the knob on the dryer doesn't move and the air isn't warm. Any suggestions on what to s


there is a cycling thermostat in line with the high limit thermostat and timer circuit,on timed dry its disabled and the timer will run no matter what,on any sensor dry setting it uses the heat of the element to heat this cycling thermostat to move the timer as the clothes get drier as the heating element heats the timer doesn't move,when the heater cycles off from the high limit thermostat then timer moves again,you need to find out if its a bad heating element,thermal fuse or possibly even a circuit breaker in the homes electrical panel tripped out on one of the 2 phases that gives you the 240 volts required to operate the dryer element,the breaker may not show its tripped,so shut it off and back on and try this first

Two problems with Whirlpool Dryer


I would suspect the heating element. I bet you are asking why this clown is saying that when you already told him that on high heat it worked fine. SIMPLE! Your heating element is made up of five coils. For low heat your dryer uses two heating elements and for high all five. So if one or two of the heating elements are open and they happen to be the low temp dry setting ones, that would explain it. That model doesn't have the dryness sensor on it (according to my documentation) so the heating element is the most likely cause.
Hope this helps!

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.

I put a small load of washing in the dryer and it doesn't dry and takes 2 or 3 drying cycles.


A restricted vent is the most common cause for long dry times. You can run a load of clothes with the vent hose disconnected from the back of the dryer. If you don't get any heat dring a cylce, and you verified an "air fluff" cycle has not been selected, I suggest having a professional service tech give you a diagnosis. The problem could be in one of a few thermostats, the heating element, main control (timer or control board), sensor, motor switch or even supply voltage.
