Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer has no heat. Tested everything and it all tests OK.

I am working on a LTE6234DQ2 whirlpool dryer and it is not heating. All of the thermostats and limits have continuity and i have jumpered them just to be sure. The wires going to the element when removed from element terminals read 240volts, the element itself reads continuity and 12ohms but when you put the wires back on the element terminals and read across them they read 0 volts together and 120volts on each leg to ground. All thermal cut offs and thermostats have voltage on each side while this is going on.

Look at the heating relay.
You might be able to swap the motor relay with the heater relay in the control panel if the are the same.

If all of the components are reading ok then you need a timer. Touch your 2 leads together. 0 ohms rght. That means you have a complete circuit.If you get the 0 reading then the element must be otay. Bad timer. Take that fancy meater of yours and atttach one of them leads to the timer leg marked RH. Yank the wire off the terminal beore you test. Move the timer around. You should get the famous 0 reading along the way. If you don't then that means you have the bad timer.

SOURCE: electric dryer spins no heat, replaced heater

in addation to checking the high limit t-stat have you checked the thermal cut off (the small t-stat) on the heater housing where the element fits into, the high limit t-stat and the thermal cut off BOTH shoud have 0 ohms (the thermal fuse is in the blower housing) the cut off is on the heater box, if you have checked those to be good, check that the heat relay on the control board is closing and sending power to the element, if not replace the control, if all above are good then the motor switch is bad and not sending power to the element(thats a built in safety feature so the dry would never heat when the motor isnt running)the element of course heats only when 240 volts ac is to the element ,120vac from the relay on control through the high limit t-stat then through the thermal cut off finally to the element and 120vac from the motor switch for a comined 240 vac

Whirlpool Dryer IED4400SQ0 wont heat


Check your thermal fuse and the thermal cut-out fuse, two different fuses that can cause a dryer to run and not heat when open, or some dryers will not start when one of these has gotten too hot and opened....Usually caused by venting restriction of too much lint, common problem...........

A open operating thermostat or the high limit being open are also possible........;.

The other checks are live voltage checks, timer contacts, wiring, temp and internal motor switch......schematic is probably in back of control panel........
Takes some reading of a wiring diagram, understanding how to split the circuit ............Not for beginners.............Hope this helps...........do not forget to unplug dryer when doing anything on unit besides live voltage checks on circuits,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Hi.

Be sure that you have checked the thermal fuse. The part is tested using a multimeter set on Ohms (impedance). Remove the fuse from dryer and read impedance touching the fuse contacts with the two multimeter probes. If impedance is Ohm infinity (open), then the fuse is bad.

If the fuse is OK because tested good or replaced, then the problem is either one of the three thermostats located in the heating group, or the heating element. All parts are tested similarly to what described for the thermal fuse. If any of the parts read open (infinity), then the part is faulty. After finding the defective part remove all the lint from heating assembly and air duct. The lint causes overheating and blows thermostats, fuse or element.

Regards.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

Whirlpool dryer will not heat


Hello there:
There are 5 things that would not make the dryer heat up i will post you them here ok
dryer_heating-element.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.
dryer_thermal-fuse.jpg Thermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
dryer_thermostat.jpg Thermostat

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.
dryer_timer.jpg Timer motor

A defective timer motor could also cause your dryer to not heat up. Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is no longer functioning as it should, replace either the entire motor assembly, or just its motor.

Dryer won't heat?


Make sure your electrical connections are correct.
Check the voltage to the dryer element and make sure you are getting 220 volts.
Otherwise I am at a loss also...good luck
I hope this helps

Kenmore gas/electric dryer


theordis:

When you say electrical power is working Ok ,I would assume you are saying this because the dryer is tumbling.
Which could mean you are only getting 120 volts to the unit but it will not heat with out 240 volts.

If you are getting 240 volts.
You could have an open thermostat, an open heating element. A bad timer contact or a open switch on the motor.

All these can be tested with a Volt-Ohm meter.

((((The Electrical supply must be turned off and at least one wire dissonnected from the component being tested.

CHECK FOR 240 VOLTS AT DRYER ELEMENT WITH DRYER
RUNNING IN HEAT CYCLE. IF NO VOLTAGE, CHECK WALL
OUTLET FOR 240 VOLTS BETWEEN LEFT AND RIGHT SLOTS IN RECEPTACLE. A DRYER WILL RUN ON 120 VOLTS TO
GROUND BUT WILL NOT HEAT IF 240 VOLTS IS NOT PRESENT. IF THERE IS 240 AT THE OUTLET, START TRACING THROUGH THE HEATER CIRCUIT. LOOK FOR A FAILED THERMOSTAT OR THERMAL FUSE NEAR THE HEATER OR EXHAUST OUTLET. CHECK THEM WITH A CONTINUITY TEST WITH DRYER UNPLUGGED, OR A VOLTAGE CHECK WITH A HOT CIRCUIT.
