Electric dryer won't heat

Thermal overload cutout tripped or is defective and needs replaced. Look for a red reset button near the heater element on the thermal overload. If no reset button, replace the thermal overload cutout. The timer itself could be defective, which will prevent power going to the heater element.

Samsung DV218AEW/XAA not heating

If the technician that came out told you he simply reset your heating element, he was not telling you the truth. Heating elements themselves cannot be reset. The element is either good, or burnt out and would need to be replaced. More common on modern dryers is that the thermal fuse on the side of the heater duct will blow out and needs to be replaced. This is usually caused due to poor air flow because of a lint blockage in the outlet duct. I would recommend calling a good, reputiable service company to repair the issue and to check the outlet duct as well. To get to the heater duct assembly, the top cover, control panel and front panel (including the door) must be removed.

Zanussi white knight dryer - the dryer is not heating up. i have pressed the red reset button the back but no heat? the drum still rotates.

It is possible the heater element is faulty or a thermostat problem.
You need to test the element and stat's with a meter to check for continuity.

Heating element

Hi Nichole, welcome to

The heater kit you need is a part number 395711.
You can get them here:

If you have been able to get to the reset, you are 90% of the way to the heater elements, they are located inside the aluminum "box" that the reset-able t-stat is mounted on.You take two screws out and the whole heater box can be pulled forward. Then you remove the two wires that are on the backside for the elements and it will come all the way out so you can remove the top half of the element box and switch out the elements. The kit comes with new thermostats as well, be sure to replace all the parts that come with the kit.
You can do it, it's not that hard,

I had the same problem. Turns out the reset button on the back of the dryer needs to be pushed; when you push the reset button you should hear a click. If you do not hear a click the problem was probably not the reset button. The button shuts down the dryer heating elements if they are getting too hot and also keeps the drum from turning unless the start button is held down.

If you push the reset button and the dryer starts to work again, I strongly recommend that you stop the dryer and investigate why the heater elements overheated. In my case there was lint/hair build up on the heater elements themselves. Extensive dryer disassembly is required to properly clean the heating elements but it is worth the prevention of a house fire. While you're at it, clean the rest of the machine and the duct work.

Hope this helps

Not heating

It is probably a thermal fuse. Take off the back of the dryer and you will see it on the lint outlet tube. It is white and is 1/2 inches wide and 2 inches long. It has two leads coming out hooked to wires. To check it just pull one of the leads off, turn on the dryer and touch the wire you took off to the other one and the burner should come on. It costs $12 at a parts store.
