I can suggest that you trace the wires from the heating element back to the control timer, There may be a heavy duty relay that turns the heating element on and the contacts could be burned not making contact or the relay coil could be bad this would cause the heating coils not to heat. Also some dryers had these contacts built into the control, If when you press the button to start the dryer and you hear the relay click on it should stay on until you open the door or shut the dryer off, If it is staying on then you may have a bad relay. Also check your fuses as the element runs on 220 and the motors run on 110. If the fuse that is bad is other than the side running your motor you will get no heat.

We just moved our whirlpool duet dryer to a new house and now the dryer is not heating. Any suggestions?


the new house that you put a dryer have an power? check all fuse in the plug or in your main outlet, or your unit is with light and running but not heating? check the motor if running? if running check the back of your unit when you see the exhaust pipe and clean it,and the filter inside the dryer clean it,if this one is ok.the sensor of your dryer is remove due to vibration coz of transfering or the heater is totally wort out,check the back of unit and look when place the heater?some model is easy to remove the heating at the back,just using screw driver,and easy to check,if the heater is continious coil is is ok,if split or broken repalce the new one,carefully to remove and carefully to return,make sure is the unit is in unplug before anything to do.

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.

No heat, but dryer turns.


There are three common causes of a dryer not heating. First is a busted heating element. Second, the thermal cut-off has blown. Third, the high limit thermostat is not working.

Disconnect power to the machine and remove the screws at the bottom of the lower front access panel (toe panel) holding it in place. Pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You now have access to the heating circuit.

Remove the heater shield by removing its mounting screw and pulling it off the heater housing.

The heater terminal block is located at the left opening of the heater housing. Disconnect the wire from one of the heater terminals and measure the resistance of the heating element using an ohmmeter set to X1. The resistance should read 7.8 -11.8 ohms. Replace the heating element if the resistance reads open.

Disconnect the wires from the terminals of the heating element and remove the screw securing it to the heater housing. Slide the busted heating element out of the housing and install the new heating element. Secure it with the screw and put the terminal block in place. Connect the heater wires and reinstall the heater shield.

Slide the lower front access panel up into the cabinet and secure it with the screws.

Sounds like the HEATER COIL is bad or not connected properly on the inside. I would call the place where you purchased and exchange it ASAP.
