First, make sure that there is no ventilation issue and that the vent is clean and clear. If the dryer isn't heating, check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. Both components are located in the rear of the dryer. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. Remember to disconnect the dryer from the power source before attempting any repair.Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

My dryer is getting so hot that it is shutting itself off mid cycle. I can restart but it only runs a short time....gets really hot and shuts off again!!


Check your entire vent tubing from the outside vent to the line coming out of the back of the dryer.
Overheating indicates low air discharge flow. The air in the dryer must move out quickly so the heat doesn't build up too much.
Try that & post back.

I am renting a house that has an old whirlpool stackable washer/dryer combo. The dryer doesn't heat up very much and it takes 3 hours to dry a small load. Landlord had a tech look at it and found...


Under normal operating conditions, the hot air blown into a clothes dryer's tumbler reaches a temperature of about 175 degrees Celsius.
If its getting hot at all, the problem is with the amount of air that it is dispensing, maybe due to the fan not turning or the duct being plugged up.
Either way there is a problem that needs to be examined.

My WTL 5410 dryer (electric condensation) has hot air coming out of the low rear duct opening (where the condentate hose connection is located. The hose is properly connected and occationally has water...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

You are correct, the unit being a condenser model doesn`t require any additional venting or exhaust to outdoors, that is the purpose of condensing the moisture internally.

As to the issue of air flowing out of the unit I`d suspect perhaps the heat exchange may need cleaning, if it is plugged it will cause the air to be directed elsewhere.

I`ve attempted to attach below the procedure for cleaning, if unsuccessful for whatever reason, too small for example, you or your landlord can email me at macmarkus@live.ca and I can send you the "pdf" guide for your Bosch dryer.

Keep me posted on your findings and I`ll try to assist you further if need be.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today and good luck.

Please take a moment to rate the info presented and leave a testimony if you feel it warranted.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Dryer not putting out warm to hot air. What is the issue?


Hope this info helps, ps don't forget to give me a rating thanks!!


For an electric dryer that runs but doesn’t heat, follow this repair roadmap:
Flip the circuit breaker off and then back on. Electric dryers run on a two-pole, 240v breaker. A common problem is for one of the legs to break which cuts the 240v that the elements need to heat up but it still supplies the 120v for the motor. The result is that the dryer runs but doesn’t heat.
If the breaker checks out, then it’s time to do some surgery. Unplug the dryer and open it up.
. Use your ohm meter to test the thermostats. All should show continuity.
Measure the resistance of the heating element with your ohm meter. Normal readings are in the neighborhood of 30 ohms.
In rare cases, the centrifugal switch in the motor can fail which breaks the power circuit for the heating elements. If this is the case, then the entire motor must be replaced since the centrifugal switch is built into the motor.

Dryer doesn t get hot


it is going to be either the igniter for the gas or the heating element
you probably have an electric igniter. it is not igniting the gas to make the dryer heat i would definantly start with that
