If it's not turning at all, the belt is probably broken. If it turns a little and then stops, the belt is slipping. In either case, the belt needs to be replaced.

700 dryer wont shut off automatically


If it will not turn off on the Timed Dry cycle the failure is in the timer. The timer is the component behind the large knob on the console. If you supply me with the full model number from the front panel inside the door, I can get you a part number and approximate price of the part.

Magic chef dryer quit working


There is a thermal fuse inside the dryer usually located behind the back cover on the upper part of the combustion chamber. When this fuse "blows" it turns off power to the whole dryer. This keeps your house from burning to the grown, and you from dying. The fuse "blows" for a reason, most likely to is lint build-up in the dryer and/or dryer vent system. The good new it only cost a few dollars to get a new one. The bad news is you need to find out why it "blew", the dryer got to hot for a reason.

Dryer not drying


HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.(clear the lint trap as well)

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.

Dryer turn on, heats up but doesn't get hot


I just had the same problem with my electric dryer. Check your exhaust vent (dirty/clogged). I have seen brushes designed for cleaning the vents at many hardware stores. I replaced mine because it was pretty bad (it's was over 10yrs old). Hope this helps.

Hi, My Indesit WIDL 102 is faulty. It washes OK, But does not dry at all. I dont think it heats up during the drying time, but the drum does turn round. Is there a thermal reset switch on the inside...


I don't know your dryer model, but I assume it is electric. Electric dryers have a heater coil like a toaster which eventually wears out and doesn't get hot anymore. This is typical and is likely the case especially if your dryer is old or has been used alot. Has the dryer been taking longer and longer to dry before it lost all heat? If so, I bet it is the heater coil.

Dryer turning but not hot


First check your electrical panel and make sure the breaker is not tripped. If breaker is not tripped you could have a blown fuse inside of the dryer or the element could be bad.
