Do you hear the motor running. If you do then the belt is broken. If you dont then you have an issue with either the centrifical switch on the motor or the motor itself

Admiral dryer timer not turning and no heat


It could be the high temp fuse on the element and the timer not turning depends doyou have it on the auto dry because it will not advance if it is not heating because the sensors are not detecting a decrease in the humidity levels because the element not working.

Dryer wont heat


The only thing left to check is the voltage at the heating coil. IF it is not present then the timer or relay is bad.

Dryer wont stop buzzing


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is bad and need replaced. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. replace the heating elements

Whirpool dryer, no heat, timer is not going right


no heat and the timer not operating is an incoming power problem,shut off and reset the breaker or check both fuses at the power panel in the house,the element needs 240volts a.c. to heat and the drum motor that turns the clothes is on one side of the 240volts which will be 120 volts a.c. and the timer is on the other 120 volts a.c.,if you lose either phase either the timer or drum motor wont turn and for sure it will not heat up,also check the neutral terminal wire inside the dryer for burning off as it carries all the return current from both phase power wire,if this opens tho it will only heat and no drum or timer operation

I have a whirlpool LEC6646aq2. Noticed a burning smell inside drum.The dryer baffle inside the drum was completely melted. The timer was stuck on 20 minutes and the heating element was full on . The...


it sounds like one of the coils on the heating element could be touching metal and grounding out constantly running until you shut it down manually,when the heater is on the timer doesn't move until the heat shuts off,then the timer advances,when the machine calls for heat again the timer stops and the heat comes back on,it does this until the timer reaches zero but in your case the heater isn't shutting down and is keeping the timer from advancing.the filter is on the top of your dryer so unplug it,pull it out remove the ventline from the back of the dryer and remove the back panel,you'll see the heating element on the right side,also with a meter check the thermostats on the heater box,when checking any part at least one wire has to be diconnected or you won't get a correct reading,check for continuity on all the parts on the heater box,when the dryer is running correctly say you have a blocked vent line,when the dryer starts running hotter than normal the thermal fuse or the high limit thermostat will pop,the thermal fuse is the white piece to the right of the lint filter duct and the hgh limit is the top thermostat on the heater box,but with the element grounding out nothing will shut it down until you manually cut the power by moving the timer to off,if it melted the baffle you could have damaged other parts like the motor,check the rear end of the drum and see if there's like yellow on it or lint stuck to it where it touches the back wall,if there is then the oil from the motor sprayed out and the motor could last for a week or 5 years but the overheating most likely damaged it,if the dryer is old you might want to think of buying a new dryer instead of repairing it and then you have problems with something else like the motor or changing out thermostats in a month or two but you have to make that call,good luck and let me know what you find

I would pull dryer and re-investigate the element to make sure no connection came off and to verify the coil did not burn in half. Hope this helps Tim

Dryer not heating


usually when the dryer is not heating is because the heating element has break. you can purchase a heating element kit with insulators at a parts appliance store.requires taking the dryer apart and removing the drum. the heating element is behind the drum. if your handy you should have no problem. good luck!

Electric dryer model LEB6300PW0 does not heat. No breakers tripped, drum turns, switches and timers work.


Pull the back panel off & remove the heating element. Examine the coils in the heating element. If some of the coils are burned through, you will need to changeout the heating element. The part costs about $65.00.

NO HEAT FRON DRYER , DRUM OK


either your heating element,hi-limit switch,cycling heat switch, thermistor,control panel, or you don't have 240 volts supplying the dryer,120volts will still let the drum turn or the timer count-down, its the way there wired
