SOURCE: I have Bosch dryer 800 series, WTVC8330US/09 that won't heat. Is there a reset, or should I consider the element shot?

Before declaring it shot, find out whether the heating element has failed.

Hi, I have a Lamber model DSP3 dishwasher that does not heat during wash cycle. Suspect heating element, is there anyway to check? Thanks

If you can get access to the heating element, a continuity check will reveal whether it is open or shorted.

Dryer spins but no heat

Conventional dryers are usually accessed by removing the rear panel. I would think these would be the same. Unplug the dryer and remove wires from heating element. Test for continuity with an ohmmeter. If there is no reading, the heating element is bad. Disconnect wires from the hi temp thermostat and test with an ohmmeter and if no reading it is bad. Sears has these parts available.

Model LEQ9508PW1. It has stopped getting hot. Just stopped putting out any heat. I assume that it is probably the heating element that has gone out. Is there anything else I should check first before...

Check first the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat located on the heating element housing by bypassing the said components. Disconnect power then remove the rear access panel to access the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat. Disconnect the wires of each component then connect them together and insulate it properly. Reconnect the power then start the dryer. The problem is in the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat if the dryer heats up. Replace both parts and it should solve the problem. It is an easy and cheap repair to make.


Also bypass the cycling thermostat if the dryer still doesn't heat up with the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat both bypassed. If the dryer still doesn't heat up, take the heating element out and inspect it for damage. Replace the heating element if damaged.

No heat in kenmore series 80, model 85040

hello there:
here is some troubleshooting ideas for you to help
A dryer sometimes won't heat or heats too slowly because of a variety of reasons. By following the guidelines below, you can inspect the heating elements on a gas or electric dryer to pinpoint the source of the problem.
Electric heating elements, found in electric dryers, are self-contained units located in the back of the dryer. A defective heating element is frequently the source of no-heat or drying problems. Remove the back service panel to gain access to the elements.
The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty

Dryer runs, but no heat. Is there a heating

No heat is not always an element. It could be the thermal fuse (check this first), a thermostat or a leg of your 240VAC missing. Replacing an element is relatively easy depending on ones mechanical abilities. Depending on the model it is accessable from either the front or the back. Back one is easiest.

Dryer lost heat according to different cycles

the model number you have is for a gas dryer if this is an electric dryer then you can access the heating element by removing the back cover this has a small element you can remove it by taking the 1/4 inch screws from the sides of the element there could be two screws or just one remove the screws and pull the element out you con then visually inspect it but the best way is to ohm it out with a meter but your problem sounds more like a timer

Crosley CEDS774JQ0 electric dryer. It wasn't drying well so I pulled the vent line and cleaned it out well, ran the brush down the filter area too. Good venting now. But no heat, none at all. Ideas?

Do not know the model in particular, but by "not drying well" you mean not much heat, and then after cleaning there was no heat---would suspect the heating element (220Volts divides to 110 to make lower heat, like on a range burner) or operating on only 110v. The jostling could have completed the burn-out point of the heating element. Could check for continuity of the element (unplugged) using VOM (volt ohm) meter or flashlight bulb, wire, and battery--bulb metal to one end and wire to bulb tip and other end of wire to other end of element. If careful and safe access could check that voltage to heating unit is in fact 220 volts with VOM set to AC 600v setting (greater than 220v) unless automatic range setting VOM. (or check voltage to element first).
Also, remember when finished to check that vent hose is to inner vent pipe, not just to cabinet; lint build up in cabinet is a common reason for heating elements to burn out.

I have an Maytag model # MAEDZ600TW2 Epic Z Electric dryer , the drum turns but no heat , circut breakers were checked , lint screen is clean , btw , date of purchase was 3/23/09

There are 2 common reasons your dryer will not heat.
1. Your limit switch is out on the dryer not allowing the heating element to switch on.
2. Your heating element is out.

before you try to fix this yourself it should be covered by warranty.
