Beko dsc85w dryer that isn't heating

I've cleaned filters, condenser, checked the red reset, I've checked continuity of thermostat and NTC both work. The element has some resistance between the 3 wires so seems ok. what else can I check?

Remove 1 wire from the element . Your 220 V comes from ...110 motor , 110 control board . Check which wire is not getting 110 V , trace it and see which it comes from . That will tell you which one is defective .

If heating element was replaced and still no heat, Then what I would do is test the voltage current in the wiring and see if there is actually power to the element.

All parts to make dryer heat are:
heating element
thermal fuse

any one of these units can be faulty

You probably have a bad thermal cut-off . This is the small thermostat , located at the top of the element housing . This " thermostat " should read infinate resistance ( no resistance ) . You can put the 2 wires togather , and see if heat comes on . pt # 3399848 . Both thermostats , should read 0 resistance . They are normally closed . The thermal cut-off , will not reset itself , if open . This is a safety t-stat , for when dryer gets too hot , and will have to be replaced .

SOURCE: Kemore dryer model110.67522600,

Both the high limit thermostat #3977767 and the operating thermostat #3387134 are normally closed switches and should have continuity. These thermostats are usually replaced as a set because when one fails its often caused damage to the other. The part # for the kit is 279816 and comes with both and is cheaper than if bought separate

The heat stopped working on my Bosch WTL 5100 dryer (the dryer turns around just fine). I cleaned out the condenser filter, then opened up the back and pressed the red reset button. It worked -- once.

are u getting the full 240 voltage in some machines it uses 2 settings to run and to heat? u might get 120 for running it but the other 120 to run heat> thus u get it running but no heat? other wise u may have a bad heating element or hi-lo thermostat or the thermal cut off fuse, u can check with multimeter and u can buy cheap multimeter at places like harbor freight for 5 bucks

No heat

One of 4 things to check.
First remove the cover on the back and then...

1.) Check the Bottom Thermostat for a Red Reset button in the middle Push it and see if it clicks and resets.

2.) If no reset button (Not all models have em) then use a multimeter to check the Thermostat. If faulty then the heating unit is bad and will need replaced. If its good then

3.) There is a NTC on the front behind the control panel. Uou need to check this.

If that's OK then it's probably the the main control board's usually the heating unit. or the reset button so check those first.

Beko DRCS68W not entering reset mode

If there is voltage on the thermostat but not going through even when the temperature is down it is possible that this could be defective. Now check using a multimeter to confirm the continuity on the thermostat and if the reset switch on this - if present - is off, if so press it down.
Now confirm the voltage from the control panel during the heating cycle and if voltage is outputted then it must flow. The connection must be checked on the heating element- trace to confirm.

The drum circulates, but there is no heat. I've reset the breakers and freed up the vent. Still no heat.

Heating element or thermostat - NTC defective. It could be a broken wire but i doubt it. Check the heater first for continuity then the thermostats if there is one... NTC controls need a service routine to check. Good might need a technician I think. Cheers
