Dryer will ramdomly not heat

My dryer will not heat about 60% of the time. Sometime spinning the heat selector dial around then restarting seems to make it work but more and more often it won't heat. I've tried all heat settings and both cycles (auto and timed) with no improvement. Thanks

I have a Amana dryer, 6 years old. It heats only first 20 minutes, and then no heat. But the drum works till the timer is out. Would you give some hint?

Thanks,

Gotta go with Washer_tech. Would go with coils myself. More often than thermo problems.

If it is a gas dryer, your gas coils are going bad. as the machine heats the coils fail, and when it cools the coils work again. very common problem

It sounds like the thermostats are going, unplug machine and remove the back panel, which is a bulgy bit on the back (not the main panel) you will find two thermostats with four wires above the heater. replace these.

GE Dryer model DSXH47 keeps shutting off after about 30-40 sec.


It could be the door switch. If it vibrates a bit then the door switch senses it's open and shuts down. Give it a look

Dryer spins, no heat, timer does not seem to function


Your timer mechanism is damaged. this will happen if the timer motor is faulty. it will not advance the cycle correctly. replace the timer/control asap. Please rate and have a great weekend:)

Dryer will spin but won't heat up


Hi


Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:
  • house fuse or breaker ( needs two of them )
  • heating element, burnt wire
  • thermostat(s), thermal fuse ( not all models ),
  • motor heat switch, timer, selector switch,
  • burnt power cord/plug.
You can check these things using an ohmmeter/multimeter from here.


Things that could stop a gas dryer from heating:

  • glow bar igniter,
  • thermal fuse ( not all models ),
  • coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats,
  • motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.

A page for checking gas dryers is here.


Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Can't get replacement parts back on Kenmore 60 series dryer.


The belt has groves, right? Make sure the groves go over the motor pulley from the right. The idler pulley is spring loaded. Place the belt around the idling pulley with the smooth side of the belt on the pulley. This should work.

Intermittant heat for drier


check for flow of air through the dryer arts as it sounds like the clicking is the thermal cut out activating, this prevents the dryer from overheating, the common cause for overheating is blockage (no air flow) or the fan that blows the air round the machine is not working, or not working properly, so check the fan see if its turning etc hope i have helped, if so please rate me
