Sounds like you have a gas dryer...
Could be what your looking a is a thermocouple tubing, if this is broken your dryer will not work...replace with a new thermostat and thermocouple tube. They come as a unit.

GE DBSR453. Dryer is not drying clothes. If we pull the dryer out a couple of inches away from the wall, it works. put back in it's place, it stops working. Any suggestions? Thank you


if the vent tube is being blocked in any way , thats going to happen, also the extra venting area away from the wall may just keep the inner thermostat from working correctly here are some other items that may cause heating problems http://www.partselect.com/dryer+dryer-wont-heat+repair.htm

Hi,

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.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

My dryer would not run when I pulled the knob to start. I took the power cord out of the wall outlet. When I replace the cord into the outlet and pulled the knob the outlet sparked.


you most likely have a loose wire inside that wall outlet. use an extension cord to plug your dryer into another outlet that you know works properly and see it your dryer will work on that power source. If it does, just replace the receptacle in that wall outlet. If the dryer still wont run, then you know you have a problem with the dryer itself. If that is the case get back and I can talk you through solving that problem also.

Kenmore series 80 power cord melted


This is extremely distressing to me. If someone advised you to jump acoss (bypass) the thermal fuse on the dryer then I am in disagreement. My advise is to trip the breaker at the house power center, remove and replace the dryer main power cord, and replace the thermal fuse. Something is causing the dryer to pull more amperage than it should be, which is what resulted in the melted cord to begin with. You may want to contact a qualified appliance technician to assist in throughly checking the electrical system on the dryer. Until this condition is properly addressed there is a very real safety issue. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Frigidaire GLEQ2152ES Dryer Won't Power UP


IF you find that you have only a 3 wire feed for this dryer (and the reason for the 3 prong receptacle)...then you can not properly install a 4 prong dryer cord to it. You now have 2 choices....either rewire (assuming that it is a 3 wire supply) the entire run from the dryer breaker to the outlet location with 4 wire (typically a run of 8/3 with ground having a black, red, white and bare ground)and install a 4 prong dryer receptacle to match the configuration of the new dryers cord.....OR - you can remove the 4 wire cord and replace it with a 3 wire cord....re-using the ground strap - IF it is still in place.

I don't know how to connect the wires on the plug to the dryer


Hello perfectange,
You should have a power cord that matches the 3 or 4 prong wall receptacle and it's pretty straight forward on how to connect. First off..position the dryer in a place that yuou can gain access to the back of the dryer.. Next, locate the passthru opening for where the new cord goes thru the dryer.. You should have or get the appropriate cable clamp feedthru for passing that cord thru and into the dryer. The clamp prevents you from pulling the wires free from their terminations inside the dryer so don't omit this part of it..
Next, remove the access cover over the terminal block that is inside the dryer and where the power cord is attached. You should see at least 3 terminals and maybe 4.. You should see a Red, White, Black and/or Green double row terminal strip. Attach the red tagged end of your power cord to the red terminal block screw, white to white, black to black.. If you don't have a green one.. that is earth ground and you can secure that to the nearest frame member screw that is unpainted.. If you do have a green terminal for groud, attach it to that one. Make sure all the screws are fairly tight. Make sure the cable clamp is tight and holding the cord from being moved. Then plug it into the mating wall receptacle. I would encourage you to cycle the dryer for a few minutes without clothing in it or the vent attached to verify it heats up and everything works properly. Then reposition it back into its final location, level accordingly and attach the vent duct ..
Hope this helps..
Regards,
Rick

Burning smell


Hello benson131,
Based on your description, you already identified the problem as being a bad power cord. There is a high probability that the place where that cord is wired into the back of your dryer that the terminals worked themselves loose. Loose terminals become resistive and do not allow adequate current flow to maintain dryer temp so more current is required and that additional current will cause the insulation to melt on your power cord. I suggest you do the following. First off, unplug that cord from the wall recpetacle. Determine if you have a 3 prong or 4 prong plug. Go to a local home goods store like Home Depot or Lowes to get a replacement cord set that matches the one you have.. ( probably cost between $10 - $15 ) Once you have the right cord.. pull the dryer out and away from the wall.. Locate the feedthru on the back of the dryer rear panel.. ( that is where the cord goes into the dryer) and usually has some kind of cable clamp to keep the cord from being yanked out of the dryer.
Loosen the cable clamp and then look for an access panel where the wires physically get tied into the dryer. Once you have the cover removed, you should see a terminal block with 3 or 4 positions and color coded ( red/ white/ black and or green.. ) the Green is a ground wire and may be secured to a frame stud and not on the terminal block. Unscrew the wires from the old cord and reinstall the new cord in its place. Make sure you match the colors correctly ( red to red, white to white,black to black and green to green if it has a green position of green to a frame screw.) Make sure these wire terminations are reasonably tight. Once together, put the cover back over the terminal block and make sure the cable clamp is snug. Then plug it in and run it.. Your problem should be resolved.
Let me know if you have any questions with this...
Regards,
Rick

Dryer not working


Assuming the problem is associated with you changing the cord, it sounds like you have a wire crossed on the power cord. Double check how you have the cord installed first. If that is correct check your power to the dryer. Since you changed the type of cord, I assume you have had outlet replaced or have just moved to new house. If you have a fuse box instead of a breaker box, check your fuses. It takes two fuses for the dryer. If one of them blows, the motor will run but you wont get heat. The motor runs on 120 but it needs 240 for the element. I can't count how many people have bought a new dryer just to find out they only had a house fuse blown and nothing was wrong with their old dryer. If you have had wall outlet changed there could be a wire crossed in it.
