If you are testing the heating element your almost there.

There will be several thermostats/thermal cutoffs/etc. in the wiring leading to and from the heating element.

These will have wires plugged onto them.

Remove them and test for continuity between the contacts. They should all have continuity -- if not, that's your bad component.

    Next, I would check for corroded and/or heat-damaged connectors/wires. Often, connectors which look clean are not clean enough to pass current.

My maytag neptune dryer doesn't blow any hot air


on top of the heating element on the left side there is a white 2connector part, that is the heater thermal fuse. disconnect the dryer power cord and one wire of the thermal fuse and use a meter to find out if you have continuity to it. if not replace it. also check for burn wires at heating element. also test heating element by disconnecting one wire and using an ohm meter test it at 2 therminals. it shoul measure 10-12 ohms.

Dryer will not get hot. All the vents are clean.


Check for burnt out heating element and electrical connections to element and thermostats. If okay check all thermostats, operating and high limit, with an ohm meter. All must be in closed position. If element,thermostats,and electrical connections good then check timer.

Maytag Neptune Dryer not heating


Q - My electric dryer runs but will not heat, what could stop my dryer from heating?
A - Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:
- house fuse or breaker ( needs two of them ), heating element, burnt wire, thermostat(s), thermal fuse ( not all models ), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug.
A ohm meter test for these parts is here.

Amana electric dryer model LEA30Aw will not heat


The heating element measures 10 Ohms at 68 degrees farenheit. Usually if the element is bad, it will measure infinity.

Maytag dryer isn't heating


You never mentioned if you checked the large klixon mounted above the heater.If it is bad you will have no heat but the dryer will run. If the thermal fuse (mounted on the right hand side of the heater chamber, 2 white wires) is bad then the dryer simply will not run. If it is good then the next thing you need to check is the control thermostat mounted on the blower housing. While down there check to see if that wheel is loose. If the control thermostat is ok then you have a bad contact inside the timer. Sometimes you can clean the contacts in the timer like cleaning points on a car.

Maytag dryer: pye2300ayw


yes, it will. you should be able to take off the panel on the bottom of the front of the dryer. way in the back is the heating element. do not put your hands in there with the power on, but start the dryer and look in there and you will see if the heating element comes on. it will be like looking inside your toaster.

Whirlpool dryer LER5656EZ3 no heat


If the heating element read 0 ohms with the wires removed, you have an open heating element, (should be around 10 ohms) replace heating element and you should be ready to rock.

Whirlpool dryer won't heat


Okay...first of all, what led you to this point where you are troubleshooting the heating circuit? Does the drum still turn? The first thing to do before assuming you have a bad component if check the power at the receptacle. You should read 220-240 VAC. If you are missing one leg of your 220 service, you will get similiar symptoms as the dryer heating circuits require 220 service, while the motor that turns the drum only uses 110-120 VAC. The result: A dryer that the drum spins, but won't heat. This has caused many people to believe they had a bad appliance, only to find out that the problem was the electrical supply.

The heating element should read between 9 and 13 ohms. Make sure you aren't measuring anything to ground or you will get improper readings. Also, make sure you are actually measuring on a resistance scale and not using a continuity check. Disconnect the wires from the terminals of the heating element before measuring. Measure at the terminals of the element. If you still get 0 ohms, you may have an element that is grounded to the chassis. If this is the case, I would recommend replacing.

Some dryers also have a heat relay. The manufacturer places a wiring diagram inside the operator console. Sometimes the heat relay will go bad and will not energize the heating circuits. This can also cause a no heat problem. The realy (if equipped) will be located inside the operator console, and is a simple item to replace.

I hope you find some of this helpful. Let me know what your dryer symptoms are.

Dryer spins but no heat


Did you check the power coard where it connects to the dryer? Start at the source. Make sure that you have at least 110v on each line. The dryer will tumble on 110v but requires 220v to heat. If you have 220v then check the t-stat and thermal cut-out on the blower. Check all wires for loose or burnt terminals. If all that is good it may be a bad motor or timer/control. I'm happy that you have a meter.
Good luck.
