Question about Dryers

Dryer does not heat up

I have a ADMIRAL 20 pound Capacity heavy duty with Model # LDGA400AAW, SERIAL#KH18442. When I put a load in turn it on the tub spins. But does not heat up. Took the top and front of the housein off. Took tub out to see if any thing looked brokin. I have noticed that the blower is missing a clap, cleaned everything around it. Would this be the cause or a sensor is not working.  The igniter is still together. Please help me THANK YOU

Re: dryer does not heat up

  Does the ignitor glow at all?  If it comes on then goes back out you may have a bad burner coil.  If it doesn't and the ignitor is good you may have a bad hi-limit stat.  Check your vent for restrictions.  If it is full of lint you probably have  bad hi-limit.  This is usually mounted on top of burner assembly.

Admiral heavy duty super capacity dryer won't heat up.

see this causes , fix it. God bless you, use the common sense
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door Switch

If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.

Thermal Fuse / Thermal Cut out

On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel or behind the front panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing or is sometimes round and made of metal and plastic.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse this is the most common reason for blowing the fuse. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)


Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
