Question about Washing Machines
Q - My electric dryer runs but will not heat, what could stop my dryer from heating?
A - Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:
- house fuse or breaker ( needs two of them ), heating element, burnt wire, thermostat(s), thermal fuse ( not all models ), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug.
A ohm meter test for these parts is here.

Hello. Thanks for choosing Fixya! You appear to have a good understanding of your electric dryer which is pretty rare. Good for you. Let me see if I can help. As you know, when there is no heat you suspect these things: 1. The power coming to the house, 2. The double pole breaker or the fuses, the heating element [have you done a continuity test on that?], 3. the thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct, 4. The dryer plug, dryer cord, and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wires are attached to.
Visually inspect the plug, the cord and the block, do continuity, etc. Since the dryer can still tumble on partial power it can sometimes be a challenge to spot problems in these areas so the only recourse is to change one part at a time until you have replaced the culprit.
Hope this has helped you. Keep up the good work. Regards, Joe
