Is it taking too long to dry or are you not getting any heat at all? If it's taking too long to dry, you'll need a new t-stat, if it's not heating at all, you need to replace the element and the thermal fuse. Email or call us with your model number and we'll be sure to get the right parts out to you right away. Hope this solves your problem and we hope to hear back from you real soon.

The timer is probably bad. If the dryer works on sensor dry use that. A timer is so expensive it is not cost effective to buy a nee one. You may as well buy a new dryer.

Most electric dryer problems not heating are due to the heater coil circuit being broken. The wiring can be replaced by the coil kit being purchased from an appliance parts store. Need make and model numbers. Follow directions in package.

hello matt.... the most common cause of no heat is a burned out heating element. Replace it and you should have heat again. Joe

I have a GE washer/dryer Model WSM2700RAWWH stack type and the dryer is taking very long time to dry the clothes. Please advise if it can be fixed. If not what will be best alternate washer/dryer stack...


first things first. if any dryer regardless of brand takes 2-3 hours to dry cloths 90% of the time it is your exhaust duct. take the exhaust duct off the back of the dryer and dry some clothes if the clothes dry fast then you need to have your exhaust duct cleaned. either DIY or call a professional
if it still takes a long time to dry then it could be the thermostats or the thermistor.
but in my experience its normally the exhaust duct.

My dryer runs but does not heat up or dry clothes. What could be the problem?


I have a Kenmore dryer and it runs but won't heat up and dry the clothes. I don't hear the ignition even turn over. Please help. I can't afford to buy a new dryer at this time.

Our dryer has no heat. Is it worth fixing?


Hello ES Bailey,

The answer depends on a couple of other considerations first. If the dryer has been a good perfoming appliance for most of the time and hasn't had any major issues or constant repairs needed, it would be less expensive to repair the dryer than to buy new.

Some other things to consider, is the interior drum of the dryer still in good shape/condition? If so, repairs will be cheaper than buying a new dryer every time.

If the washing machine you have is getting ready for replacement, you might want to consider buying a whole new set of laundry appliances, but again, it makes more sense to buy only the appliance you need, rather than getting all new ones. Unless money isn't an issue and you're looking to get a newer style front loading washer, etc.

My only other advice is to say that there is nothing much in the way of technology or energy savings features for a dryer made today than one made 15 years ago. There is no such thing as an energy start rated dryer made anywhere in the world, unless you're hanging clothes on a clothesline to dry. So the only thing you'd get by buying a new dryer is, a new dryer at a higher price than the repair will be.

If it were me, I'd post a new question with the brand AND model number of the dryer and provide some details on gas or electric and so on and get some advice on how to fix the problem yourself and keep using it for years to come.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

No heat, will turn on and spin with cool air only. does not dry clothes.


Okay, let me try to solve this with three possible solutions:
EASY AND CHEAP: Check the hose, the lint filter and the vent for obstructions. If the air is not getting out then the safety switch in the dryer will tell the element not to heat up. Without this safety switch the dryer becomes a fire hazard (and that's a whole other FixYa problem!). Make sure the hose is not crimped or clogged and that the outside vent is opening properly.
HARDER AND MORE EXPENSIVE: The heating element may be burned out or have a loose connection. This is a little bit harder fix but can be done without consulting a repairperson. However, if you have little or no experience then don't try that at home.
EASY BUT MOST EXPENSIVE: Buy a new dryer. If you do, see if the company you buy it from will take a trade in. If not, call a small appliance repair shop and see if they would like to buy your machine to repair and resell. This might offset some of the cost of the new dryer.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Dryer is eating clothes


suspect you have to buy a new part. I think they design them to go soft after only a year, so you have to replace them or buy a whole new machine.

Clothing gets caught in the front of the dryer as it spins. This is leaving black marks and wholes in our clothing.
