    There is no heat in the dryer.

    Is there an internal fuse?

    checked the electric, bought a heating coil. Can I fix this from the front or do I need to do it from the back of the unit?

    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.

E15 error code on hoover tumble dryer


Controls
  • The control unit on the tumble dryer will vary among different makes and models. The main purpose of the controls is to allow the user to select the drying cycle. You can choose the time and temperature setting on most units, while others allow custom settings such as moisture sensors and end-of-cycle alert signals. The controls may include a dial or a touch panel and LED screen display. Some tumble dryers allow you to independently select the appropriate time for the load you are drying and separate programs for temperature.
Motor
  • The motor inside the tumble dryer spins the basket to allow the clothes to tumble while being dried. The tumbling action allows the air to pass through the clothing to dry them faster. Heating laundry that is stagnant will likely dry the clothing on the outside while leaving damp clothing inside the pile. The constant motion, along with the heat and steam created by heating the clothing, reduces wrinkles. The motor also powers the fan that delivers the heated air to the basket of laundry. The heater can be an electrical element or gas powered.

Clothes not drying


Clothes not drying? Thats it? Does the dryer turn on at all? Does it tumble the clothes but doesn't get warm? If it turns on and tumbles but takes a long time to dry, then your heating element is not working. There is a thermal fuse right before the heating element that will open up if the vent becomes clogged and its gets too hot. The thermal fuse is not resettable and will have to be replaced. If the thermal fuse is o.k. then your heating element could be burned out. These two items almost require an electrical meter to read continuity to check them. Make sure the dryer is unplugged before checking these items.

My Roper elictric dryer is not drying clothes


If you are experiencing longer dry times and/or poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some tihings to check before assuming there is a malfunction with your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes. Hopefully, this may save you a service call. If you check everything and still have poor heating issues, please let me know. You may have an internal bias or hi-limit thermostat malfunctioning.

Wed9200sq0 heats, tumbles but does not dry at any heat setting


You are correct. Pull the dryer out and disconnect your venting from the back of the dryer. Turn your dryer on and check to make sure your dryer is blowing air out of the dryer duct. If it is then leave your dryer out at least 2 ft from the wall and run a load of clothes through the dryer. If it dries your clothes normally then you have a venting restriction. Check to make sure your venting is clean, not kinked or smashed, make sure your outside vent is opening an doesn.t have something blocking it. Check your lint screen filter by running water through it. If water is not flowing through it, you have a build up of fabric softener on your screen, blocking air flow. Scrub your screen off and test again. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

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.
