A no heat condition in an electric dryer is typically caused by a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually mounted on the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohm meter. Check the components for continuity. No continuity means the component is bad and must be replaced. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

My jandy heat fan motor will not start motor is new


Electric motors usually need a Run/Start Capacitor. Did you replace that as well? Did you have an electrician test that and the motor. A capacitor is a few bucks compared to a motor.

Amana heat pump emergency heat comes on but blower will not start. The call for heat comes in and the heating element(s) glow red for a few seconds and then there is a "click" and the heating...


Check the blower motor capicator. It should be mounted close to the motor with 2 wires to it (brown,brown/white).
Turn the blower on the thermostat and spin the squirrel cage by hand and see if it runs after by itself. If it does then definitely the capicator is bad .If it still doesn't run then check to see if there is voltage going to motor.
If thermostat is calling for fan and there is voltage present at the motor terminal then the motor is bad

What the codes


You want delay fuse instead of fast-acting fuse. Look for delay on product description.
Since the motor has a high amp draw when first starting, then that means surge of heat traveling over wire.
Fuse trips when sensing heat.
Delay fuse will accept high heat for longer period of time before tripping.

You have 1 Hp 6K321 motor from WW Grainger. You can contact grainger.

I recommend that you use 12 gauge wire and 20 amp fuse. Over-sizing wire will save heat loss and prevent damage to motor, and heat damage fuse box.

If you use smaller 14 gauge wire and 15 amp fuse, the motor will heat the wire, especially if length of wire is longer than 100 feet from fuse.
The motor has thermal protection, so motor is not overheating.
The wire is overheating.

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

My GE DHDSR46EE1WW Dryers heating coil won't shut off...ever!


I think your heating coil may have broken loose or sagged down so that it may be shorting itself against the shroud. The thermal fuse would not allow the dryer to heat at all, and a hi limit error would cause the thermal fuse to blow.

Heating element heats up, but dryer will not spin.


Since you stated that the heating element is heating up I believe it rules out the thermal switches.
When you push the start button does it make the motor make any noise? Maybe hear the motor humming? Two things to check for are Broken Belt or Bad Motor:
This requires common sense and since you are going to be bypassing the safety features you need be CAREFUL.

First, with door open, manually press in door switch to by-pass door safety, then press "start", try to manually start the dryer by spinning the drum by hand, If you hear the motor humming but it does not start spinning on it's own; most likely it is a broken belt which can be changed without much difficulty for less than $15 bucks. NOW if it then continues to spin on it's own GET YOUR HAND OUT OF THERE and close the door; you have a bad motor and even though it started it needs to be replaced. A motor for that is available for just under $100 bucks and is not to bad to replace, I would recommend replacing the belt at the same time since you will be in there. Good Luck!
