The first thing I would check is the heating element. if that proved to be ok I would go after all the little safetys that are mounted around the dryer at various spots to detect over heating etc. If you find any of them open that will be the orpblem. To get an acurate reading remove at least one of the wires from each disc/clixon and the heater element.

Admiral Dryer, runs bu t does not heat


The thermostat, timer or the heating element itself are the places to check. Look at the circuit breaker for the dryer in the power panel. It will be two breakers connected together. If one trips but not both, the heating element will not heat but the dryer will run.

Dryer does not heat up checked all thermostats and replaced heating element still no luck


hum... I ve seen where the motor was only getting 120 and not 240 and with most dryers they use 2 speeds or modes on the windings , 1 direction for drying with heat and the other to run minus heat thus if u only get 120 volts u have enough to run the dryer but not enough to run the heat to that dryer?

How do you check voltage to dryer?


The first thing you should check on a electric dryer when it does not heat or run is the voltage at the cord.

If you do not have the correct voltage your dryer will not heat and may not even start.

The dryer needs 240 volts for the heater to work. It gets 240 volts by using two 120 volt lines. If one of these 120 volt lines is dead it will not heat. It may or may not still run as the dryer only needs 120 volts for the motor to run.

If you have one 120 volt line missing power and it is the same 120 volt line that runs to the motor then the dryer will not run or heat.
