Check the heating element and the thermal fuse for continuity. Also check for clogged vent.

Dryer heats sometimes and sometimes it doesn't


It could be a house electrical problem. Dryers need 240v to heat but can run with only 120v. Sometimes I seen were the power cord where it plugs into the house outlet is loose and will sometime heat and other times not.

I HAVE THE WHIRLPOOL LER4634JQ0. IT SAYS 120V/240V. CAN I USE IT AN APARTMENT ?


Is your apartment wired with a 240V outlet? Ask your landlord. A regular outlet is 120V. Electric dryers use 240V, thus where you are plugging the dryer into has to be a 240V outlet.

I have a GE Profile Harmony Dryer. No Power. 240v, 110v, 110v at the outlet but soon as I plug in the dryer I see 240v, 110v, 0v. Is the problem in the dryer or the power outlet on the wall?


Its not really clear to me where your measuring once you plug in the dryer, but all phases are measuring the correct voltage before, it appears you have an open circuit once you plug the dryer in. Now a dryer is 2 phase, so I would check all of your wiring connections, I would also check your circuit breaker and try swapping it out with a new one(as a last resort). Do some experimenting. In a dryer the heating elements are the only thing that runs on the 240V power. I would swap the hot leads in the dryer and see if any of the electrical components come on. Also try testing the continuity on your dryer plug wires to make sure there isn't a break in them (which can be proven by swapping the leads because now the same lead will read 0V on the other terminal).

No heat


Hi!

The issue you are facing is due to the thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse is the problem, the dryer wouldn’t run.

First of all verify the voltage for the dryer by using multi-meter to measure the voltage at the dryer outlet to make sure you have 240v because the dryer motor only needs 120v supplied by one of the lines to run. But the heating elements, on the other hand, need 240v supplied by both lines to get hot.

If the voltage is ok, then the most likely bad parts are given below. As always, you should use your meter and the tech sheet supplied with your dryer (hidden inside the control panel) to verify:

1. Even Heat Board

2. Heater Relay

3. Thermostat

4. Sensor

You need to check and replaced the bad parts to resolve the issue you are facing with.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Just hooked up outlet. Dryer tumbles, wont heat. Have I wired the outlet wrong?


Hi, Did you put red and black wire to the outer posts? White wire ti center and green to ground screw on cabinet? Dry will run on 120V but needs 240V for heat. Make sure there is 240V to the outlet as well.
Hope this helps. If so, please feel free to rate my answer so that I know how I am doing.

Our dryer was working yesterday morning, but later in the day it would continue to run but would not produce any heat to dry the clothes.


If the dryer runs but doesn’t heat, don’t even think it’s the thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse was the problem, the dryer wouldn’t run at all.
First thing to do is verify your source voltage for the dryer; for those of you in Manhattan, this means to use your multi-meter to measure the voltage at the dryer outlet to make sure you have 240v. Y’see, Slick, the dryer motor only needs 120v supplied by one of the lines to run. But the heating elements, on the other hand, need 240v supplied by both lines to get hot.
If the source voltage is ok, then the most likely bad parts are listed below. As always, you should use your meter and the tech sheet supplied with your dryer (and cleverly hidden inside the control panel) to verify:

2. Heater Relay
3. Thermostat

No heat we plugged in dryer and it works but it gives no heat


Check for 240V at the outlet. If you have 240V, check the continuity of the thermostats on the element housing, and the element itself. If those are ok you could have an issue with the timer.
Good luck!

My dryer is not heating


it could be a bad: heating element or internal temperature switch. but i would turn you circuit breaker in your house off then back on first. sometimes the dual breaker will trip only one side leaving you with a partially functioning machine.
