It could be the heating element, a safety limit, a control problem, or an electrical problem. A heating coil is used to warm the clothes as they get tossed gently inside the drum. A blower mounted on the motor pulls air through the heating element into the drum and out the exhaust. The element gets old and briitle with use and eventually needs replacement. That is what you check first. On gas dryers vibration and age will cause the igniter to crumble and fail. If it turns out the element is fine then one of the safety's might be blown. These safety's are set to a certain temperature
for the dryer to operate safely. The drum temp control for cotton is 160f. A limit on the heater housing is 250f. If it fails another smaller limit is mounted nearby that blows at 300f. If that temp exceeds 350f a duct fuse mounted on the blower housing opens and kills most dryers. On gas dryers the duct fuse will kill the gas assembly but the dryer will still run. If all of those safetys are good the timer could be the problem. The timer has a terminal on it that runs down to the heating element. If you suspect it is bad you can check it with a meter. That leg of the timer should have continuity with other terminals on the timer at different spots on the timer. Turning the timer and checking for continuity will give a clue. If you cannot get continuity with any other terminal on the timer at any position on the dial then you have a burned contact in the timer. If that turns out to be good, you would need to inspect the electrical outlet for proper power to the machine. On American models the motor runs on 120 volts but the heating element must have 240 volts. If you have more questions just post a comment. Good luck on repairing your machine.

Can be a few things. Start by resetting your circuit breaker. The dryer motor can run with partial power but the heating element cannot. Make sure your not set to a no heat setting. After those checks you have to get into the mchine to check your heating element and thermostats.

Hi, it sounds like the reset stat gone on your vented drier. Remove the back cover, where the element is, and you should find two stats, one with a green spot. That's your reset stat. If you have a multimeter, turn it to buzzer and check the stat by touching the connections with the meter leads. If there's no buzzing, it's the reset stat. also check if the dark side of the stat is pushed inside. Remove the stat and hold it about 20inches from the floor. Drop it on the floor and the dark side will become flat. Repeat as many times as necessary. GUARANTEED TO WORK. Put everything back and that's it.
Cheers

My nepture dryer wringles the clothes very badly


Most common problems with wrinkles is too much clothing is in the dryer causing and allowing to tumble freely. 2nd, the dryer is not putting out enough heat and cause the clothes to stay damp and stay winkles. 3rd the exhaust fan may be not working properly. you might able to solve the problems by trying to reduce the amount of load, allow it to tumble freely and I don't know if your dryer are putting out enough heat. the cause of low heat can be the heating element is going out. hope that help some.

No heat to tumble dryer


Check the thermal disc with an OHM meter. One will be next to the heat element (high limit) and another on the air exhaust area which is the low limit.
