First, as a retired Fire Captain I must recommend turning off all running appliance before leaving the house or going to bed. I can tell you some real horror stories. Now, there are several parts that can keep the heat off or flame off and they all need to be checked with an OHM meter. It could be the ignitor, ingitor sensor, or gas solenoids. Get a service tech out to check which you need or if you have an OHM meter I can give more info on what to check.

If your ELECTRIC dryer is still running, but does NOT produce heat, the following two links can give you advice on how to troubleshoot an ELECTRIC dryer with a no heat problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576548-dryer_runs_but_does_not_heat

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574266-thorough_dryer_advice


IMPORTANT: Your problem may or may not be related to a heating element problem as there are numerous factors that can cause a dryer not to heat. The heating element has protection devices that are designed to regulate the heat and internal temperatures. If the dryer overheats the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) typically will blow BEFORE the heating element. The replacement kit is much cheaper than purchasing a new heating element that may or may not be the problem.


Begin by verifying the source voltage at the receptacle and service breaker, and verify your power cord.

The reason a dryer may still run if the input voltage is incorrect, is because the drive motor only uses a portion of the 220 service. The motor runs off 110-120VAC, while the heating circuits require 220-240VAC. So, if you are missing 1/2 your input voltage due to a tripped breaker or bad power cord, your dryer may exhibit these symptoms.

If you determine the problem to be internal, the heating circuits will either be located in the rear of the dryer on the right hand, or under the dryer drum. Usually, an easy way to determine is by the location of the lint screen filter. If the filter is on top of the dryer, the heating circuits are in the back of the dryer. If the lint screen is in the door, the heating circuits are located under the dryer drum.


NOTE: If either the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat are determined to be bad, replace BOTH components at the same time. That is why these components are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of any parts you replace.

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations that you can use to locate and properly identify any parts you may need. If you have questions, require additional assistance, please post back with a MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If this is a GAS dryer, the most common cause of heat related problems is a weak or failed igniter on the burner assembly.

NOTE: If your model number is not listed on some of the websites, use the part numbers from the Sears website and use that as your search criteria. Some model numbers will not reference on some sites, but the part numbers will.

Makes grinding noise especially when shutting down


a grinding noise in a dryer is usually due to a broken motor coupling. Not sure however since you didnt include a model number, brand or year the machine was purchased. If you own a somewhat older model (bought from 4-6 years ago) it is most likely the motor coupling however newer models can have some other problems and usually require a service tech to come and look at.

Older Ge Hotpoint Dryer will tumble but not light the gas to heat


You state it is an older dryer, so I'd suggest replacement. The water may have damaged numerous components, including the motor, which would be costly to replace.

We purchased this microwave 4 months ago and the food is not heating up and do not know what model it is but it has a dial setting and is a stainless steel model.


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.

I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer or dealer to get it fixed free.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
