Put it back together tried it, it was making a noise as if motor was sticking. But it wasn't it moved fairly easy. I ataeted to take side off this time tried it again with same result i moved drum round a little then it started. Closed her up tried to dry washing, it worked for couple minutes then just stopped heating element started glowing through drum. Opened door, closed door few times, rotated drum from inside.

SOURCE: Electric Clothes Dryer Problem

if the dryer worked fine before with the element not staying on when you open the door, etc, then what you have done is a very common mistake to make, you must have dislodged a wire off, or maybe placed one back in the wrong place, its a very easy error to make, which is why when removing parts for repair on any appliance you must make very detailed notes, better still take digital photographs with a digital camera double check any wires etc, don't worry i am a retired appliance engineer and even we can make this mistake

SOURCE: Heating element stays on after door is opened

possibly something grounding the element to the housing. what brand of dryer do you have? GE/Hotpoint dryers are good at allowing things like underwires from a bra to get into the element area and ground out the element. or possibly the element has broken and the broken end has fallen against the housing. hope this helps

I a have a kenmore 417 dryer that is not heating I followed the steps


Check to see if the electrical coils are glowing or not...... they are located right behind the cloths drum. (sounds as though they are NOT heating up) In order to see these coils...... first, remove all the cloths from the drum. second, while the dryers door is open 7 the drum is empty look all the way to the rear or the metal drum, it has a flat back in which you will notice there are quite a few holes. During the next step you will want to watch these holes as we check to see if the heating coils are lighting up (they will glow like the heating element in your oven... or burners on your stove top as they get hot.... ORANGE IN COLOR IS WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE) Now.... with the dryer drum empty & the door OPEN..... you will find a small pushbutton located somewhere around the outide of the drum opening thats activated (pushed in when you cose the door), depress this little button and hold it IN (this is tricking the dryer into thinking the door is closed... but its not, your holding the button NOT the door.... luckly the dryer isn't smart enough to know this) You must continue to hold the button in till the test is over.... if you let go it will IMMEDIATELLY STOP the dryer! Now, push the start button located on the console like you normally would do so during normal operation (it is recommended that the temperature be set to the HIGHEST SETTING during this test). As the dryer starts and the drum turns.... watch those holes located in the back of the drum! It takes a minute for the coils to get hot enough to glow so give it a few minutes before giving up..... after 3 minutes an ORANGE GLOW should appear through those little holes. The glow you see is the coils getting hot like the element in your oven. If after 3 minutes..... NO ORANGE GLOW can be seen through any of these holes..... the heating element needs to be replaced (this is a common problem & is usually inexpensive to replace..... $15 - $20) Replacement heating elements are available at most appliance stores..... remember to write down the manufacturers name, the dryers model number, and serial # prior to going to the store for a replacement. You MUST provide this information to the dealer for proper replacement parts! Once you've got the new heating element (it will look similar to a really long spring) you'll be Up & Running in No time!!!!) Just follow the instructions which are usually provided by the manfacturer to properly replace the broken element! Hope this helps...... GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Either the centrifugal switch on the drive motor is stuck in the ON position or the heating element is broken and shorted out on the heater canister.
You did not post a model number.
Therefore I can not assist in accessing these parts.
All dryers are made differently.
Appliance model numbers are a must.

How to replace ge dryer heating element


you will need to remove the drum for this one.  once it is out, the element is mounted on the back of the unit.  not a hard repair, just lay out the parts as you take it apart to give you some order as you re-assemble it.

Hi, My Indesit is60v tumble dryer has developed a heating (or lack of) fault. I have replaced the heating element & stats. I notice that it only heats when the drum is going in one direction, when it...


yes it will heat in one direction the longer clockwise one... when it does its short reverse tumble it switches off... there is also a duct thermostat that could be causing the premature heat output but also check the vent pipe and hose for blockage plus door filter remove and look down the hole as build up could be hidden...

Whirpool lgr6620pto will not heat up and will run all day untill i open the door


Heating element is either burnt in two or vent pipe is clogged with lint or birds have made a nest in the pipe on the outside wall or roof. Yes, a bird can lift that little flapper door up and will fill that pipe until it is clogged. To check to see if it is a heating element, close the door to your laundry room & the light out, turn the timer knob to any selection, with the door open & no clothes in the drum, find the door switch located somewhere around the door frame and hold it in while turning the start knob on. If the element is good you will see a red glow coming from the vent holes at the inside back of the drum. No glow, no good.

Indesit is70c dryer is not heating?


Take off the back plate of the drier to expose heating elements. There you will find two thermo switches, one with a hole in the middle of it. Push something like a pin into this hole until you hear a click. Re assemble back plate and it should work now
