Dryer doesn't get hot enough to dry clothes


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The first thing that should be checked is the Thermal fuse which is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover. If this fuse goes bad the dryer will not heat and you’ll have to replace it as it cannot be repaired. If this I fine then you’ll need to check the thermostat, igniter and coils. Also as its only 3 months old so it is recommended to use the warranty to avoid any further issues. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

My Whirlpool dryer has stopped heating-still seems like air flow and tumble is good. Recently replaced computer. Dryer is only 5yrs old.


if your heating element is good then you need to check the thermal fuses in the cabinet if one of those is bad then it needs to be replaced.all thermal fuse should have continuity as well as the element if one of them does not have any continuity then replace it

I have LG DLE2101W just installed yesterday. It


I found your manual and learned yours is a GAS dryer... the FIRST check is to be SURE the gas valve to your dryer is OPEN.

There is a Troubleshooting section, but NOTHING about no heat?

Know that LOW gas pressure CAN be a issue too!

I did find this:

"If the dryer no longer heats then the heating element may have failed, but it is not the most common cause. The most common cause for a dryer to stop heating is a blown thermal fuse."

The SECOND Link will be VERY helpful...

More help?
Cause 1 Thermal Fuse
Cause 2 Gas Valve Solenoid
Cause 3 Igniter

Dryer does not heat up.


Most likely the Thermal fuse has blown (remove back cover to get to it). Find out what it looks like and part number by typing model number in here:

Whirpool dryer won't heat up


You need to replace the thermal fuse and the timer. A bad timer will over draw a thermal fuse and cause it to blow.

Please remember to unplug the dryer before servicing
