Re: will not heat up

Did you check for 220 volts to dryer? Power to the dryer is made up of 2 110 volt circuits. If 1 is down it can still run but not heat. Check with voltmeter across 2 outside prongs of plug with it pulled partialy out of socket. BE VERY CAREFUL.

The procedure is as follows:--- 1) First of all unplug the dryer from electric outlet for safety reasons.2) There are two panels in the dryer. One is top and other is front panel.3) Both the panels are secured by clips in between them.4) Take a putty knife and insert it in between the top panel and the front panel of the dryer. Press the retaining clips with knife and separate the top and front panel by Lifting up on one corner of the top panel to release the opposite retaining clip.5) After the clips are pressed both the panels will easily get separated. But take care there will be a connecting wires between the panels. You don’t have to pull that wire while separating the panels.6) You will see the door switch on the upper right side corner area of the front panel.7) Remove the wire harness from the door switch carefully.8) The remove the flange of the front panel to the side panel on each side by removing the screws.9) The front panel will get separated from dryer after removing the screws.10) Now with the help of screw driver remove the screws holding the drum bulkhead of the dryer.11) Now push the idler pulley between the drum and the motor assembly with you hand to loosen the belt tension.12) The belt will easily come out one you loosen the belt tension.13) After the belt is out.

Will not heat just changed the heating element and thermstat

there are several thermal fuses in the cabinet that can or could be faulty you need to check the continuity of them all and replace the one that has no continuity.

Dryer drum turns, no heat, replaced thermal limiter

Your model which we call the 417, is not usually easy to work on. The heating element is located behind the dryer drum. The drum has to be removed to change the element. There is a lot involved but given the cost of a stack unit the element and labor may be worth it.

No heat (replaced heating element and another

It sounds like you replaced the heating element and the small thing you refer to was most likely the thermal fuse. If these are the components that you replaced, and if they are indeed good, the next thing to look at if the dryer is not heating up is the high limit thermostat. It is most likely faulty if the element and thermal fuse are good. Hope this helped and best wishes. Here is a picture of a thermal fuse and high limit thermostat to help you figure out what is what.

Motor does not turn

if coils is heating are you sure motor isn't running or just the drum not turning ? if drum not turning suspect belt ..if motor not running but element still heating suspect element is contacting outer case ..with coil touching case 110 volts is present even without motor turning if timer is turned to heat position element will not heat to capacity but will get hot enough to eventually blow element fuse

Motor not strong enough

The problem dosen't sound like the motor. Check to see if the drive belt is loose and slipping. This is the usual cause of the problem you describe. If not, the bearings for the drum may be going bad. The heating elements should turn off shortly if the drum stops so there is little danger of overheating.
