My whirlpool dryer comes on and runs good but it wont get hot can you tell me whats the problem


Hello there and welcome to fixya there are several things that could make this dryer not heat up
Here are the most common things

Thermal Fuse

If the dryer doesn\'t heat, but the drum
turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer
from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is
blown, it will have to be replaced.




Enter your model number to see parts for your dryer.

Help me find my model number


Gas Valve Solenoid

The gas valve has two or more electric
solenoids which open the valve to let the gas flow into the burner
assembly. If the dryer doesn\'t heat one or more of the solenoids may be
defective. If the igniter glows for 90 seconds but the burner flame
doesn\'t light, replace these coils as a set.


Dryer Igniter


If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the igniter might
be burned out. Check the igniter for continuity with an ohm meter. Dryer
igniters burn out over time, similar to a light bulb.


Heating Element

The heating element on an electric dryer can
burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element should be
checked for continuity. The heating element cannot be repaired and must
be replaced if defective.


Heating Element Assembly

the heating element assembly on an electric
dryer can burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element
assembly should be checked for continuity. The heating element assembly
cannot be repaired and must be replaced if defective.

Flame Sensor



Gas dryers have a flame sensor to detect the
heat given off by the flame. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the flame sensor
might be defective. Check the flame sensor for continuity. This is not
as common as a burned out igniter or thermal fuse.


High Limit Thermostat


Although not common, if the dryer doesn\'t
heat the high limit thermostat can be defective. It can be checked for
continuity. If the thermostat is "open" the dryer doesn\'t heat.


Cycling Thermostat




The cycling thermostat regulates the
temperature of the air in the dryer. If the dryer doesn\'t heat it may be
caused by a defective cycling thermostat. This is not common.


Main Control Board

The main control board is normally not at
fault when the dryer doesn\'t heat. Check all of the other components in
this troubleshooting guide before replacing the main control board. The
main control board cannot be tested easily and must be replaced if it is
defective.


Timer
The timer is normally not at fault if the
dryer doesn\'t heat. In many situations where timers are replaced they
end up being returned. Check all of the more common components in this
troubleshooting guide before replacing the timer

It just doesn't seem like my frigidaire gas affinity dryer is drying as fast as it should


Hey Car Guy,.. there are two factors that determine how fast the clothes will dry:
1- air temperature, Is the gas burner is lighting and heating the air? Just stop the dryer mid-cycle and feel the clothes - if they are hot, then the burner/heating part of the dryer is working ok.

2 - adequate air going through the dryer. This is usually where the problem lies. There is a lint filter at the dryer somewhere, accessed either where the door opens, or on the top of the dryer....there may be an additional lint filter somewhere on the exhaust duct. Check for that, and check your air flow where it exhausts outslde. See that the flappers of the backdraft damper aren't stuck closed etc.

If you have good heat and good air flow, then it's doing all it can.

My dryer mod rex5634kq1 stopped working


what stopped? Does it not Spin? if so it could need a new motor. If it spins but doesn't heat up. it could just be a heat sensor in the back that needs to be replaced or a heating element. if nothing happens at all it could be the start button needs to be replaced. Turn the dryer around and open up the top back panel. should be about 6 screws. inside there will be a diagram on the schematics of the dryer.

Hope this helps.

Dryer was in cycle and shut off and will not turn back on. I turned the cycle off and tried to restart and it still will no go on. This is a new dryer, only 3 weeks old.


If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. To determine if the door switch has failed, watch this part testing video. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

My gas dryer doesn't heat very well, if at all. Do I need to replace parts or are there ways do check and clean parts.


First i would clean the dryer vent. If the vent is clogged then the dryer cannot circulated the air inside the dryer. This will cause long dry times. If the dryer heats at first then doesnt heat anymore after about 10 min you probably need new coils

DRYERS: is lintcollector better on the top of a dryer or inside


Both configurations work well, but dryers with the lint screen on top are much easier to work on if you need to performance any maintenance or repairs. All the heating circuits are located behind the rear panel of the dryer and are easily accessible.

Dryers with the lint screen inside the door have the heating circuitry located inside the dryer cabinet under the drum. A little more effort is required to disassemble the dryer for any maintenance.

NOTE: No matter which dryer configuration you choose, to maintain dryer efficiency make sure you keep the dryer exhaust ventilation clean and free of obstructions. The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is caused by poor ventilation. Check your ducting often.

If you have any further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
