SOURCE: Filter lamp flashing

The condenser has two "channels" one for the moist hot air that are easy to clean and inspect. The other flow is perpendicular where cool air drawn from outside and passes through. These channels, viewed from the side can get blocked over time with dust/fluff. I blasted mine with a pressure washer and it was obvious from the change in light when looking through it that it was clogged before I blasted it.

I have had dryers do this in the past-- easy fix.. just a part that needs replacing. I had a family
member that is handy order and replace the part but you may need a tech unless you
know what to look for.

SOURCE: bosch nexxt 3300 dryer not heating

with the dryer unplugged 220v is not fun
with a meter, and first disconnecting cables to each component and reconnecting them after the test is complete
check the continuity of the element, it may have burned out
check continuity of the thermostats on the heater housing and fan housing,
check the interior of the fan body for sox and lint

not a solution, yet

I had the same trouble after moving to a new house, I first thought I had a voltage problem. It turns out that the heating coil has a high temp re-setable switch in side the back - lower right side. the sencor has 2 screws, I took it out and cleaned off the lint and now have dryed 5 loads with 0 issues. looks like a flaw in design that would allow lint to get in the heating coils!!!!! I think I'm going to look for a new dryer before I burn down the house!!

the thermostats at the element have to be replaced, they burn out prematurely if the condensor unit is not cleaned on a regular basis.

Amana electric dryer LE8317W2 tripped circuit breaker. Orange wire fried at end by heat element and was off terminal end. Also the purple wire was fried at thermostat end. I cleaned up connections and...


These units are totally repairable and will run for ever. Need to assume that other damage has occurred as a result of the failed shorted terminal connections.

Possible that the circuit breaker is defective caused by the dryer failure.

Assume that one of the components has shorted to the grounded frame of the dryer.

The 11 ohms of the heater is about right.

Confirm that heater element is not shorted to the dryer frame (heater housing)! This condition would have caused the initial wire terminals to fail and now trip the circuit breaker!

Use an ohm meter and check resistance between hot leads on back of dryer. Check resistance between each hot and neutral.

There is a switch located on the motor that connects power to the heater. When the motor is running the centrifugal switch closes. This saftey circuit confirms that the blower is running before heat is turned on. Check that the switch is not damaged from prior terminal short circuit failure, Repair kit is p/n WPL-501218

Timer is the next check. Same thing confirm that no damage to the switch circuits has occured. Last check thermal fuses and thermostars for short to netural.

Hope this helps?

My dryer still runs but does not heat up (just blows cold air), any idea how to fix? Will it be a thermostat or the heater element itself?


Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Whirlpool electric dryer not running.


Hi,
Check the blown fuses and home's circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

IT RUNS BUT DOES NOT HEAT


Hi,

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.

Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Dryer won't heat up during dry cycle


Hi,

Make sure you check these to fix the problem.
  • Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

  • Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

  • A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Thank you

Dryer runs but does not get hot to dry clothes


Hello there:
There are a couple of things to check if the dryer does not heat properly
There's no heat If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Power from the house Heating element Thermal fuse Wiring Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Kenmore dryer model number 110.66912691 not heating.


Check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer-circuit breaker-pair. Push off, then on. If immediately re-trips, the dryer has a dead short circuit in it. If they hold, then retry the dryer. If it now works, ok! If not, recheck the breakers as above. If tripped again, there is a likely short in the dryer's heater assembly. The drum must be removed to access the heater.

Runs but does not heat up


if the dryer runs and doesn't heat check the fuse or circuit breaker first flip the circuit breaker to off then on again. to check fuses check visually to see if wire across meter is broken. if this doesn't solve the problem check the terminal block where the line cord attaches to the dryer the red block is the heat block, if ok turn power off and manually take the heater out and check for a break in the coil. if you have a multi-meter just take one wire off heater and set meter on ohms and put one lead on one heater terminal and one on the other if meter pegs the heater is ok if it only moves a little or not at all the heater is no good if heater is ok check the thermostata in the same way. but my money is on a bad fuse or heater, thermostats very rarely go bad

Runs, but no heat


First of all if you have fuses check for one of the fuses being open, if circuit breakers be sure they are ok. Next check for 240 volts to the heating element, if you have that and no heat replace the heater

House fuse


If you have a two pole circuit breaker
there will be no fuses
the breaker replaces the fuses mentioned in the manual

Most common cause of dryer running but no heat is a blown thermal fuse. a protective device that fails if airflow is restriced and temperature rises.
the thermal fuse is mounted on the fan body or exhaust duct and looks like one of these
ac65851.jpg ce345c9.jpg wired in the heater circuit
explicit instructions to open the case/body of the dryer depend on make and model which are not stated.
If the thermal fuse has blown the dryer needs to be cleaned of the lint that got past the screen, into the fan and exhaust duct all the way to the vent on the exterior wall 2092f63.jpg thermal fuses are ~$14
