Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Dryer not heating


For the most part, when the dryer not heating check to see if you are getting air outside through the vent. If not, that is about 80% of most common problems of dryer not heating. The lent is inside the duct is blocking air, therefor kicking off the heating elements prematurely.

My frigid air dryer turns on and tumbles but will not heat up. We are doing renos and the duct(ing) is not connected to the dryer vent. Is that the cause? thanks.


No probably not the reason for not heating, what comes to mind first is check for proper 220/240 voltage is getting to the dryer, a dryer will run and seem to operate normally evn with getting only 110/115 volts but that is not enough power to energize the heating element to heat the air blowing into the dryer,or you may have a failed dryer heating element. Good luck !

My dryer will not heat up


hi friend,
Step 1 The most common cause of a dryer not heating is that the air duct gets clogged. This can cause a fire and should be cleaned out about once every couple of months. Take the air duct off from behind the dryer with a screwdriver and take the other end off near where it goes into the wall. Run a hose through the air duct until all the junk and lint from inside gets out. Let it sit in the sun for about an hour to dry then hook it back up. Try the dryer out to see if it heats again.
  • Step 2dryerrepair_thumb.jpg Dryer thermostat The dryer's thermostat can also be the cause of it not heating. Locate your dryer's thermostat and take it out with a screwdriver. Take your multimeter and set it to the resistance setting. Put one lead on each terminal. You should get a reading of 0, or -1, which means infinity. Any other reading than this means the dryer's thermostat is bad.
  • Step 3dryerheatingelement_thumb.jpg Next, test your dryer's heating element. Heating elements cary in what they look like but you should see some sort of coil of wire like a toaster. You can do a search online for your dryer's heating element. Once again, set your multimeter to resistance and take the heating element out. Put one lead of the multimeter onto each terminal of the heating element. You want a reading that is not 0 or -1. If you get a 0 or -1 your dryer's heating element is bad.

    • Try walking into your local hardware store and asking them if you get stuck.
    • Make sure you un[plug the dryer before you start to fix or repair it.

    The dryer doesnt get hot enough to dry clothes


    Pull the dryer out and remove the lint hose . Turn on the dryer and feel if there is good air flow and if you feel heat . If there is good air flow and heat , dry a load of clothes , to see if they dry normally .
    If there is not good air flow , then the blower wheel is probably stripped and needs to be replaced . If there is good air flow and heat , then the problem is in the vent ducting , between the dryer and to where it vents to the outside . Dryer could be pushed back too far , causing the hose to " kink " , restricting the air flow to the outside .
    Remember , a dryer either heats or doesn't heat . If no heat , then a dryer problem exists . If heat , but dryer does not dry , then a vent problem is the cause ( except for maytag , which the blower wheel sometimes strips out ) .

    Dryer is not heating air


    Sounds like the heating element or coil is out, but it could also be the board to. At any rate, if your not getting any heat what so ever, its more than likely electrical and its best to take it in. If it gets some kind of heat, then you might try cleaning out your dryer vents really good, and also in the dryer. Hope this helps.

    Dryer not heating


    Don't think so. My issue with the no hot air on the dryer was the relay switch. There is also a heat switch and thermostat that could be a problem.

    Our LG dryer doesn't get completely hot until the clothes are mostly dry.


    heated air enters the dryer at 140 degrees farenheit,
    a portion of the heat energy raises the temperature of the water in the clothes.
    When the clothes are cold and wet, the difference is large transfer is rapid
    a lot of heat transfers to clothes and the exhaust air is damper and colder
    As the clothes get warmer and dryer, proprtionally less heat is extracted from the incoming air, and the exhaust air is warmer and dryer.
    When the clothes are dry, and at 140 degrees, the same temperature as the incoming air. no heat is removed from the incoming air
    the dryer should then stop heating, draw unheated air through the drum and clothes to cool, and reduce wrinkling
    then switch off

    the dryer appears to be operating correctly
