Unplug unit and turn off gas if gas model. Check to be sure you have 240 Volts at wall outlet.

Most parts likely to fail on Roper electric dryers are inside the rear cover. Heater is on right inside can, safety thermostat on lower left of can, High limit thermostat (non-resettable) higher left of can. On the blower housing to the left are the operating thermostat and, in some models, a thermal fuse (white plastic). ALL can be continuity checked easily. Always disconnect wire on one side of what you are testing. One will likely be open. Replace the component that fails the continuity test.

I have a beko dcu9330 dryer givin n heat. changed blown sensor and tested both sesors, still no heat, no power getting up to heater. whats next step?


Electric dryers have a heating coil over which air is drawn to heat it up. Unplug your dryer and use a continuity tester to check the heating coil for breaks. Attach one lead to one coil terminal and the other lead to the opposing terminal. No reading indicates a burned out coil (very common). All coils are replaceable.

Electric dryer not heating. I checked the thermostats and heating coil. Coil reads 9-10 ohms and thermostats read 0 ohms.

Trying to check if the heater coil is bad. Is there a resistance across the coils?


Hi,
Yes you should get resistance across the coil...it will vary from coil to coil....

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

WONT HEAT, DRYER WILL TURN BUT WONT HEAT UP.


Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil.
If you plan to try to repair the problem yourself, then the first thing you want to do is unplug the dryer from the electric.
Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor.
Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST. This could cause a fire, as you have removed the saftey of overheat from the machine.
Good Luck,
Hope this helps

Kenmore electric dryer heat stays on when door open


Sounds like your thermistor/thermostats could be your problem.
They control the heat coming from the heating coil.
Unplug the dryer.
If you remove the back of the dryer, look for the air tube coming from the blower to the drum, normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and the thermistor/thermostats. Replace as needed.
Good luck,
Hope this helps

Won't heat


You did not say if you had an Electric or Gas dryer.
My expertise is with Electric Dryers.
If you have an Electric Dryer then you problem is probably the heating coil or thermostats.
Unplug the dryer.
To check them remove the back of the dryer, locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and thermostats.
Remove the wires from the heating coil. Use a continuity meter on the two terminals to check for continuity...if you do not show continuity, then the heater coil is probably faulty.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Electric dryer heat coil off mid cycle


You have 3 thermostats. By the description of the problem it sounds like it needs a new high limit thermostat. All 3 thermostats and the heating coil can be checked with an ohm meter. Also check the ground on the heating coil. It could be grounding it's self out.

No heat


The dryer complaint of "No Heat At All" can be a couple things for a given gas or electric dryer. (Keeping in mind; Insufficient "too long" to heat is a different type of complaint)

Defective Ignition Systems

For Gas Dryers; Thermal fuses (white - very likely), Gas valve coils (black; battery size; likely), Thermal Sensors (black, square; rare, but likely) and also Electric Ignitors (Glows red; likely) are very common for "no heat" complaints.

For Electric Dryers: Hi/low limit cut-off switches (Very likely) and electric heating element/coils (Likely) are very common. Also, tripped breakers for electric dryers (Very likely; may only be receiving 110v instead of the 240v needed)

With respect to your dryer vent-line; the line may be clamped down too tight. You may need a 1/4 screwdriver to loosen and remove (assuming it is not taped down)
