Haier HLP140e Dryer won't heat after circuit tripped

Hi. I installed this dryer in my inlaw apt just over a year ago (so of course it's just out of warranty :-) It hangs on the wall, is vented to the outside, and is perfect for the space. It used to work perfectly, but now it won't properly heat up ever since I overloaded that circuit (by accident) and the breaker tripped. I reset the breaker in the box and the dryer and controls work fine, it just never heats up enough to actually dry clothes anymore. Normally I would guess a heating element was worn out but the failure seems to have been caused by the circuit tripping (I was using a portable oven in another part of the house). Can you help? I'm guessing it could be hard to get parts for this dryer here too. Am I stuck having to replace this? Your advice would be GREATLY appreciated! I'm a woman but reasonably handy if I have instructions to follow. Thanks!

There may be more than one heating element or the heating element could be partially defective. Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter HLP140E. You will be presented with a list of common replacement parts and may be able to view a video showing disassembly of a generic Haier dryer (like the sound of that) and identification of parts.

SOURCE: Ventilation question regardingHAIER HLP140E

Hi I own this dryer and you have two choices for venting it. One reason I originally bought it is because you can run it safely without venting it to the outside. That's a huge plus for many small apartments or a dorm room etc. For that option you purchase a 'ventless' kit from Lowe's or Home Depot, can't remember the exact cost but definitely less than $20. It works very well, but will add some heat to your living space (nice if you're in NY, less nice in Miami). It didn't add a lot of heat to the space, but later on I ended up installing a vent through the outside wall (which was much easier to do than I thought) because I was doing some drywall work in that area anyway. That vent is also very inexpensive, maybe $10. The standard vent kit opening will be for 4" whereas this dryer's vent opening is 3" - but the dryer comes with a piece that makes the 3" to 4" transition for you. This is a very convenient unit because it only needs 110v (standard household outlet) instead of the usual 220 (or is that 240?). The main thing that will help you be happy with it is just to have the realistic expectation that it takes about twice as long to dry clothes (60-90 min) because it's on lightweight power. But it does a very nice job, and we love the little washing machine we got with it too!

SOURCE: My portable haier dryer (HLP140E) has a bad odor.

No any smell coming from a dryer is not "normal," no matter what anyone tries to tell you. I would seek a replacement model immediately. You are not the first to complain about this model. Likewise, I would seriously consider a replacement for the washer as well, even though the smell has diminished. I hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: I bought a brand new

http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/High-Limit-Thermostat/DW-7350-04/1220912 is probably what blew from overheating and will need replaced.

I would also recommend that if you don't have an exhaust system going to the outside you purchase on of these: http://www.amazon.com/Dundas-Jafine-TDIDVKZW-ProFlex-Indoor/dp/B000DZFTC6/ref=pd_bxgy_k_text_b

Dryers require that there be an exhaust or they will overheat.

The bad news is that since that is covered in the users manual it might not be covered under warranty. But since it is brand new you might try returning it.

SOURCE: Haier HLP140E clothes dryer heat

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

The dryer does not heat up and only cycles for about 10 min. Then will not turn on for about 15 minutes. Is it the element?

Haier HLP140E Electric 110V dryer exhaust filter.


I have had this dryer for 4+ years and finally have used the "floor vent" filters that come 12" x 4" and cut two of them to fit. It's a pain because unlike the round design they can "fall out" when you snap the filter back in. Be that as it may, they work well because you cannot buy the black round wool filter anywhere.
