Dryer heating problems

My dryer turns and acts like it's heating but it is not. I do think it's the heating element, is this something I would have to replace, or is there a reset button for it? How do I fix it? If I get someone to fix it, what's a resonable price for them to charge?

Re: dryer heating problems

You have this under "gas dryer" but by the model number it's an electrics dryer. There are 3 things you can check yourself first, 1) Check for blown fuses or popped circuit breakers. 2) Check the connections where the wires go in the back of the dryer 3) Make sure you have good airflow coming out of the vent outside your house. If all of these are good then you will have to call for service.

I'm inclined to think that the problem is in the electronics, in the circuit board, since it's acting so oddly. The timer dial shouldn't allow the heating element to energize when the door is open.

If the thermal fuse is blown, you should NOT get heat.

No heat in dryer

Check the wiring first. If that looks ok unplug dryer from wall then remove the heating element and test it for continuity. If it is wide open then it is bad.

My electric dryer works but isn't heating. What is the problem?

The burning smell usually indicates an over-heating motor. It could also be lint on the heating element that is getting hot (very dangerous).

Either way, I would not use the dryer until you call a certified techinican. If it's lint on the element, he should only charge you for a service cost to clean out the lint. If he diagnoses a bad motor, then the motor is usually around $150 and labor $100.

You can sometimes find technicians that offer free estimates. I think that will be your best bet.

Best of luck and thanks for using

Turns on and has no heat

Check operating and high limit thermostats. Just check all thermostats and thermal fuse non resetable. After that is done check heating element. Good luck Be sure & check thermostats something is not shutting it off. Timer may be stuck in cycle.

OK .. on your dryer it does have a bi-metal switch that turns on and off the element....if your dryer produces heat... nothing wrong with element.. a thermostat w/wire sensor is the only way to check for your heat if its working correctly.. the other is to check if your clothes coming out of your washer is it wetter then before.. might need to spin one more time.. good luck..
