On the back of the unit there is a overheat protection module, take off the back panel that looks like an 8 and reset the heating module

Dryer will not stop running


If the start switch is stuck or the start knob is stuck in the start position the dryer will run when the door is closed, and the timer is at at a time setting. if you have no heat you might need a heating element or your unit might have a thermal fuse that would need replacing.

My GE dryer has no heat but runs. Also when you put the setting on more dry or less dry the dryer will run for hours, but will run the correct time on the timed dry setting. Either way the dryer will not...


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.

Dryer is not heating up to dry clothes


The spark ignitor maybe at fault. Listen for the clicking noise upon starting it up the first 30 seconds it runs. If not heard it is in need of a replacement

The fuse for the heat keeps blowing but dryer runs


if its an old round buss fuse that screws in the panel(especially an old 60 amp panel),sometimes the center where the fuse lands the insulation gets weak in this area and lets it arc over when the dryer calls for current to heat the element replace this with a sub box and breaker set-up.the other thing it can be is the element is touching the units case and grounding out causing the same problem

Kenmore dryer no heat


check the thermal fuse to see if it's open which means blown(no continuity through it). check to see if heat element is broken somewhere. And if thermal fuse is blown then you'll also have to replace the thermostat switch and the high limit thermostat switch(located close to heat element).

Kenmore dryer no heat


If the dryer runs - but no heat is produced, there are usually two things that it would normally be - first turn the dryer on and go outside and check the flow at the duct. If the flow at the duct is weak (should be nice and strong) then you more than likely just have a clogged up duct - clean it out and you should see a big difference in airflow and time to dry things. If the air flow is good but there still is no heat - you may have a heater bank that went out, or a hi limit switch that was set

Only heats on timed drying


Our Kenmore dryer had the same sort of problem (different catchy names.

Problem was that in "smart" modes (by what ever name, the timer motor runs in series with a "dampness" sensor (thermostat, actually, I think) and A RESISTOR.

Resistor burns out--this is the symptom set.
