HI

THE DRYER HEATER OPERATES ON 240VOLTS. CHECK TO BE SURE YOU HAVE 240 VOLTS AT THE OUTLET. WITH ONLY ONE SIDE OF THE CIRCUIT, THE MOTOR WILL RUN ON 120 VOLTS, BUT THE HEAT CIRCUIT WILL NOT.

MOST DRYERS HAVE A HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT NEAR THE HEATER ASSEMBLY. SOME HAVE A THERMAL FUSE AS WELL. THE HIGH LIMIT WILL CYCLE, BUT THE THERMAL FUSE WILL NOT RESET. CHECK FOR 240 VOLTS AT THE HEATER TERMINALS. IF YOU HAVE IT, THE HEATER IS BAD.
IF NOT, TRACE BACK THROUGH THE CIRCUIT UNTIL YOU FIND THE COMPONENT WITH THE 240 VOLTS ACROSS IT.
THAT WILL BE THE BAD COMPONENT.

MAKE SURE THE SELECTOR SWITCH IS SET FOR HEAT.
OITHER ITEM IN THE HEAT CIRCUIT:
CYCLING THERMOSTAT, TIMER, SELECTOR SWITCH, MOTOR CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH.

Blowing cold air


This model dryer has two heating elements, one for the top and one for the bottom, I suspect that the bottom element is burned out. If you want to attempt it yourself then I can send you a service manual that will walk you step by step through the whole dryer.

No longer blows hot air, only cold air


when a dryer does'ny blow hot air,it's normally either the element or the stats on the element.

Our dryer does not blow hot air? The cloths do not


more than likely the heating element has gone out. if your clothes have no heat then the element is the most likely cause. you can get one for anywhere between $30 - $50. you'll need to know model and serial #'s. usually easy to replace.

Dryer gets too hot


if it gets too hot with new limit you might need to take dryer to neighbors yard and blow out all lint from whole unit from the lint filter, blower, indide and exhaust hose and also check the flapper where the air goes outside
and blowing out the lint from an old dryer with an air compressor makes a BIG MESS
good luck

Air flow and heating problem inside dryer.


???? this doesnt make much sense, can see how you would be measuring air flow within the cabinet??? air blowing out unit strong means your gettin good air flow fom within, that is a direct relation as to the amount of (hot) air being pulled across the clothing

My dryer is ot blowing hot air


Remove the heater vent, then turn dryer on. Does this fix problem? If so then you have a block in your vent hose.
