No heat from dryer

The dryer runs ok, except there is no heat (no matter what settings we use). I checked and cleaned all the vents but no change.

Thanks for any insight!

Sounds like the heating element has gone bad I would call a repair man to fix. But it can be done yourself if you know how to take the housing off. Replace wire element the was the old one was on.

Whirlpool dryer will not heat


Gas or electric? If gas check for flame. If electric check the heater element. Go online and get a replacement. Doesn't really matter which watts you get. Should always run dryer on low setting and let the air do the work not the heat. Check the air vent and clean as necessary. You can save energy by doing loads and then adding wet clothes to dry clothes. Break up the wash load into managable sizes. Let me know.S

Dryer works except there is no heat. Gas line is open and looks fine, what could be the problem?


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
This is a fairly common problem with gas dryers there are several components that need to be checked thoroughly i will list them here below ok?
Quick Gas Dryer Tips:

Problem -
Gas flame comes on first few times then quits and igniter keeps cycling on and off but never lets the gas go.
Answer ( most common ) -
Replace the coils on the Gas Valve.

Problem -
No flame, no igniter glowing at all,
Answer ( most common ) -
Inspect igniter for small burnt spot on dark gray or black part of igniter or check for 110 volts to igniter when dryer should be calling for heat.
On the back of the dryer near the fan blower housing is a thermal fuse, if this opens up ( no continuity ) the gas burner often quits but the motor will still run. If the thermal fuse is open/bad, always clean, change, adjust the venting system and vent hood first and clean out the dryers air ducts. Sometimes it is a good idea to replace the operating thermostat at the same time.
Thermal fuse parts help link...on blower housing cover, can not be re-set, must be replaced if is open (no continuity between pins).

I replaced the thermal fuse because there was no heat. Now the dryer over heats and shuts off. Everything checks ok on ohm meter. The timer works in the "no heat" mode. Could it be the timer...


after you changed the thermal fuse did you clean out the dryer and the vent line?if not you blew the fuse again and it will keep doing this until you clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac and blow out the motor and the cabinet where the motor is and blow out the vent line,if it's a long run remove the vent line from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower.the dryer went over 300 degrees from lint buildup and popped the thermal fuse,it's a safety so the dryer doesn't run hot and start a fire.if the dryer is running and sfter like 20 minutes it shuts down and won't start for a while until it cools down then the motor is bad also probably from the dryer running to hot from the lint build up.

My dryer is working, but it's not heating


pull the vent line off the back of dryer and see if it helps,also the duct that the lint filter slides into could be loaded with lint,when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?sounds like from what you said when you had the top off it worked better because you had better air movement with the top off.go out side and check the vent,if it's a long run from the back of the dryer to the outside vent i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,you also need to vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,if you have a shop vac blow off the motor and blow through the inside vent to clean out the heating duct and vac out the back of the drum,you should take it apart and clean it out once a year so the dryer will run correctly

My Kenmore dryer seems to have a mind of it's own on heating. Sometimes it heats very hot, sometimes little heat at all. It does not seem to matter what setting it is on, low, med, or high. Nor does it...


when was the last time you cleaned it out,try running it with the vent line removed,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off the motor and clean out the vent line and the outside vent,if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to clean out the vent line,also is it gas or electric?next time send model number?if it's gas you could have bad gas coils,when they heat up they fail,clothes are warm at end of cycle.run the dryer for 15 to 30 minutes and check to see if the flame is still lighting if not bad gas coils.hope this helps

It seems that I have to run the dryer longer to get the clothes dry


when did you last clean out the dryer?you have to clean out the vent line if it's a long run i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line to clean it,unplug the dryer and clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the inside where the motor is,this should be done once a year,also if it's gas you could have bad gas coils,when the coils heat up they shut down if they are failing,run the dryer for 15 to 30 minutes and check to see if the flame is still liting,if it isn't change out the gas coils but still do the clean out no matter what

Maytag dyrer mdg6200aww the heating systwm does not stay on


Remove the vent from the rear of the dryer.
With no clothes in the dryer and the dryer set for hi heat run the dryer several minutes.
With a accurate thermometer check the exhaust vent temperature.
It should be 135 to 160 degrees.
If it is, you are OK. Just need to clean your vent and connecting tubing.
If not, replace your gas valve coils.

Frigidaire dryer heats but clothes not drying


A1 Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
