My white knight tumble dryer does not heat up,tried pressing the reset button but still does not heat up


you have a heating element burnt out. You will need to remove the back of the dryer and in the bottom of the dryer casing you will see the element Looks like a toaster element. Take model and serial # to an appliance parts house for replacement. An appliance tech shouldn't charge you that much to repair if you dont want to do it yourself.

Good luck hope this helped you some

Will not get hot when drying


There are a few possibilities- I'll take you through them:
1) Most probable: your heating element has gone bad- actually they usually break when they go bad/burn out. This will likely require some skill and some instructions for you to repair- plan on replacing the heating coil and the door seal for good measure, especially if the unit is more than 10 years old.
2) Less probable but possible: are you sure your drum is tumbling? if not, your clothes won't dry and you'll lose the element in short order.
3) yes less probable but still possible- the contacts on the switch dedicated to heat settings or the thermostat have gone bad, denying current to the heating element.
Good luck!!

Dryer won't heat--element replaced; tumbles fine


Before you purchase any more parts, you should have use of a multi meter. If the dryer is not heating at all, and of the following parts could be bad.......Operating (cycling) thermostat, high limit thermostat, thermal fuse, timer, or motor centrifugal switch. All but the motor switch can be easily checked with the dryer UNPLUGGED using the ohms feature of the meter.
