    Is there an internal fuse?

    If the header you are using is correct, I'm assuming this a stacked model washer/dryer combination. This symptom is usually an indication of a blown thermal cut-out or bad heating element. To repair, you are going to have to remove the dryer drum to get to the components. The heating element, which is a large coil, sits directly behind the dryer drum. The thermal cut-out sits right next to the heating element. Unfortunately, I do not know of an easier way to get to the components to check them without removing the drum. Can you provide me with your model number (located inside the door of the dryer) so I can make sure?

TAKE THE BACK OFF OF THE DRYER AND CHECK AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE POWER COMING TO THE ELEMENT WITH DRYER RUNNING IF SO THEN CHECK THE ELEMENT WITH A OHM METER AND SEE IF IT IS BROKEN, IF NOT MAKE SURE THAT THE THERMO DISK IS CLOSED WITH THE OHM METER, IF IT IS THERE IS PROBABLY A THERMO FUSE UP ON THE ELEMENT CAN THAT IS BLOWED.

Dryer tumbles but clothes won't dry


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.


check out this electric no heat tip...

You did not say what model washer you have. Top Load, Front Load and Model Number... That is very important.

As for the dryer..... If the washer is not getting a decent amount of water out of the clothes then the dryer could be becoming damaged continuing to use it. A dryer simply evaporates the water on tumbled clothes in it. It is is set on a TIME DRY setting, I doubt it will work at all. If it is set on AUTO DRY then, it could be running and running and destroying your dryer. You also may have a heating element that is weak or intermitently going on and off.

It is important to know how old, the brand, the model numbers of everything. Also if it is a Gas Dryer or Electric.

Sorry for the extra questions, but it is neccessary.

Kindly,

Jim

Dryer will not Dry!


A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.

Heats but won't dry


I'm not at all familiar with the Malber brand, but I do know that the basics any dryer needs to work are: 1. Heat 2. tumbling (so the air can reach all areas of the wet clothes) and 3. air flow, so the moist air is removed from the dryer.

The number one cause of poor or no drying is poor air flow. Check the end of the vent outside to see if you are getting a strong flow of air out when the dryer is running. I'll bet you are not. Find out why and correct. (clean out lint, reduce or better yet eliminate any flex duct, try to make vent pipe as short and straight as possible, use a dryer vent end cap which has a large opening, etc.)

Dryer does not dry clothes


On the top of the heater box there is a thermal fuse that blows if the dryer overheats, on this model it could occur if the air circulation fan is faulty, or the condenser valve is faulty, alternatively the sump hose filter may be blocked, only a closer inspection of these items will determin which the problem is.

Clothes dryer


washer dryer and dryer ony machines differ in a huge way. the big diff. is the drums on each are completly different sizes. the conventional dryer has the bigger, giving better air flow and tumble to clothes. the w/d has a smaller drum thus less air flow and less tumble between clothes. the best way to see this effect is remove half the clothes after a wash and then select a drying cycle. u will see that by giving the clothes more room to tumble free of each other rather than tumbling in a large ball will dry them. washer dryers are really only a marketing tool.

Tumble dry is heating but takes forever to dry


check your air exhaust (including the lint filter) from the air duct connector (remove duct if necessary) on back of dryer to the exterior of the building. Somewhere, there must be air blockage.
