If the dryer has dryness sensor strips they may have a coating on them repelling moisture from wet clothes. The brains might think them clothes is dry. Clean the sensors with windex and party on.

SOURCE: Hello - I have a

1...You may have more than one problem on your problem with your dryer not heating.
2...Your noise (ba-ba-dum) is being made by your drum rollers that probably have flat spots on them and is in need of being changed.
I will include two solutions to your two problems, I am not sure if the disassembly of the dryer that I am going to send if for will be applicable to your dryer disassembly but it may help
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Problem 1...Not heating

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If 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.
Check the 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.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
(Thermal fuse.If it overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.
For video and pictures on how to replace the element go to the following website:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Problem 2...
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm
pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the
idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

The engine stops after a half hour of mowing and will not start until it cools down, after which the cycle repeats itself


engine getting hot. Take rope pull off and clean off all the air fins on the cylinder block, use air how and do a good cleaning. If flywheel still have all the cooling fins it should help the problem or even solve it. Keep mower airways clean.

Pull off exhaust vent. Clean. Remove back cover. Clean all airways free of lint and debris. Is this electric or gas dryer? If electric, plug back in and run dryer. Is the heating element glow red? Yes, check and make sure that air is now flowing freely out the back of the exhaust vent. No, replace heating element.

When a laptop starts to get very hot, its usually due to the airways between the fan and the outside being full of dust.

Some fridge freezers take the cold air from the freezer and moves it into the fridge via small duct in the back of the inside of the fridge and freezer . Empty frige and freezer , take plug ouy of wall and carefully remove involved panels taking note of any mechanical valves and order for reassembly. Clean and clear all airways and check for any blockages . Over loading of freezer can also obstruct airways . Whilst you are doing this you will allow a good defrost time for fridge and freezer airways . Hope this helps

Laptop shuts itself down after 20 minutes.


Check the cooling fan. Not just the fan itself but all the airways and metal fins that it blows air over. This often requires removal of the fan itself. PC and laptop fans act like little vacuum cleaners!

Model RT14HDXGW02 Refrigerator compartment wasn't


Yes its possible that the defrost water instead of going down the drain properly, its clogging the airways. pull the covers off and see if the defrost drain is plugged or frozen. clear it if its plugged and make sure panels and gaskets go back on properly

on your heat setting you should see less dry, normal dry and more dry. put the setting on more dry and that should take care of the problem. and for the airways. first check your lent trap and if that doesn't do it, check your exhaust hose from dryer to the outside and if that is clear you may have to remove rear cover and clean out. i hope this help.

Hoover Light on


ALTHOUGH MOST FILTERS SAY WASHABLE THEY DO STILL NEED TO BE REPLACE AS WASHING THEM SHRINKS THE FILTER AND EVENTUALLY CLOSES THE AIRWAYS. WHICH ALSO IF NOT REPLACE WILL OVER HEAT MOTOR IN MACHINE AND CAUSE MOTOR FAILURE.
