Dryer does not heat up model mdg508daww tested ignitor,radiant flame sensor,thermal fuse and tried limit fuse and cycling fuse checked blower wheel and made sure there was no air flow restrictions and...


Hello,

A few other things that could make the dryer not heat are,

Heat selector switch on the control panel

Timer

Motor


A quick question though...i see where ya tested the ignitor but what i would like to know is does it glow or not

To test the heat selector switch ya need to use a multimeter set to measure ohms of resistiance and test the following to have Zero ohms resistiance when set to high heat setting

Red wire to blue wire terminal (wire must be removed)
Red wire to yellow wire temninal

The heat circuit on the timer is
Yellow wire terminal on the timer to the red wire terminal...on that too the wires need to be removed off of the timer

On the motor the heat circuit on the motor switch is the yellow/black wire to the black wire to determine if its good the igniter can be checked for POWER (120 volts) since the motor only sends power to the ignitor when the dryer is running because itsa built in safety feature that will prevent the dryer from heating when not running


Good luck,

My gas dryer runs forever without making any heat. The timer doesnt advance at all. The air flows great just no heat. On a VERY rare ocassion there is a little heat but hardly ever.


Hi there,

Well if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes. Post comments for further help or information.....
Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

WED5321SQ0 dryer doesn't heat or shut off once it's running


well if ran all night you maybe be running a even heat or auto dry cycle. i would first try on a timed dry see if heat then. if does heat (which probably wont) you will be need to replace either the sensor or board that controls the auto dry. or a very small chance that the timers bad. most likely you have a bad heating element. if the machine doesnt heat on the timed dry, then you need to check continuity on the heat fuse(located on heat element housing). if good then check continuity on heat element. i would say you have a bad element or heat fuse.

Amana dryer not advancing on auto


Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.

You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.

Motor runs, but timer does not advance, no heat.


if the timer is on auto it won't advance if there is no heat,you'll need a meter to read out parts in dryer,is it gas or electric?try first by checking the thermal fuse on the blower wheel housing,if that's good check the heater if it's electric,if it's gas check the ignitor,sensor gas coilssend model number and if it's gas or electric next time

Dryer run but wont get hot


Hi..

If your dryer not get hot check this

  • Check for proper air flow

If the flow of the air in your clothes dryer is impeded, the clothes will dry slowly or not at all. Also, a blockage in the vent system can be a fire hazard.



Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If you feel no air or the flow is weak, follow the steps below.
  • Test the safety fuse
  • Test the thermostats
The dryer uses multiple thermostats to regulate the temperature. When the temperature is higher than the preset limit of a particular thermostat, the thermostat breaks the circuit and the heater goes off. When the temperature cools enough, the thermostat closes the circuit again and the heat can come on.
  • Test the centrifugal switch
  • Test the timer motor
  • Test the heating element
Good luck !!!

Won't heat, won't advance on auto, won't shut off on timed. air only fine


I suspect you have a timer motor problem. My experience has been in most cases you cannot buy just the timer moter, you need to purchase the entire timer....at costly expense. If you can get your ear near the timer while running, first listen to hear the motor. Usually when the motor is going to quit, it becomes fairly noisy. In any case, the timer should advance,

Dryer Timer running very slow


1st of all make sure you have 110vac to the timer motor, usually the 2 black wires, if you do and the timer won't advance then you do have a bad motor and you would have to replace the whole timer. If you do not have 110v to the timer motor, try selecting the Timed mode. If it advances in the timed mode then the problem isn't the timer, the problem could be poor air flow( plugged up vent or blower wheel) causing dryer to cycled off of the limit and not the thermistat which is how most auto modes work.

Timer does not advance, dryer keeps running.


in auto dry the timer motor receives voltage to advance by way of the cycling thermostat.[each time the thermostat opens to stop the heat the switch in the thermo then changes that voltage up to the timer and it will advance timer motor until it closes again for heat and this continues till clothes are dry]so as long as timer is receiving that voltage and not advancing then i agree its the timer.other wise it could be a failing/intermident cycling thermostat.a thought.in timed dry the timer motor receives constant voltage.so if never stalls in timed dry it may be a clue that the timer is ok. i hope this helps you understand whats going on. God bless ,tom
