Unplug the drier pull it out from the wall about a foot facing the drier take a small putty knife and insert it about 3" from the edge push the knife in till you feel the spring clip push in on it and lift the top then repeat that on the other side fold the top back till it leans against the wall look in the drier on the front edge of the front door panel there are two 5\16 in screws there remove them and un plug the light switch and the door switch assembly .grasp the front door panel and give it a quick snap forward to disengage the retaining clips and the door from the drum remove the door .Lay on the floor reach in and remove the belt from the idler pulley and blower motor pulley .Then while standing at the side of the drier grasp the belt with one hand and the front of the drier drum with the other and **** up sharply on the belt to release the drier drum from the rear drum bearing then remove the drum out the front on the rear you will see the heating element there will be one sensor on the heater pan that's the safety or high limit thermostat the tiny one on the drier body is the thermal overload the one on the vent at the bottom is the operating thermostat but its rare to have a problem with them if the drier is not heating the first thing i recommend is check your voltage and connections and don't assume just because its running its getting full voltage check it with a meter driers will run on 110 but will not heat without 220

    What is the voltage supposed to be at the heating element? I have checked all 3 and each one has 110 each.

My Hoover vhv680c tumble dryer is working but does not get hot I have changed the element but still no good


There are other possibilities. Dryers have one or more temperature sensors that will open circuit the heater element if they get too hot. If the sensor goes bad you get no heat. These are usually located near the end of the heater element. Find the wiring diagram and you will see them. With the dryer unplugged you should be able to measure almost no resistance across their terminals. Another possibillity is in the timer. The contacts inside of it could be bad. This is likely if you get heat on some cycles and not others.

I have a Bosch nextt 500 series dryer and after 2 years of use the problem I have is the heat will shut off and the dryer will keep running and I have to press the reset button on the backside of the dryer


Open the front panel, remove heat exchanger and clean. also clean out lint tray. this might help a little. Now lets check if the thermal sensor or heating element needs to be replaced.
Unplug the dryer. remove the panel in the back of the dryer that covers the heating element. ( the inner panel). On top of the heating element you will see a thermal sensor with a small red button on it. Thats the manual reset button. To test if the heating element is working properly you can disconnect the wires from the sensor and clip the connectors together . Plug the dryer back in and start it. pay attention to the heating element. It should begin to glow shortly. if it doesn't then your heating element is bad and needs to be replaced.

Unplug the dryer. Connect the wires back to the thermal sensor. Plug the dryer back in. Before you start the dryer, press the red button on the thermal sensor. Start the dryer. If the heating element doesn't come on and dryer doesn't heat, then you need to replace that sensor.

Hi,
Yes, You can jumper the sensors temporarily to see if they are the problem, but DO NOT leave them jumpered out because of safety issues!!!

Also you can have power on both ends of the element, but do you have 240v power ACROSS the two wnds of the element...you need the 240v across the ends for it to work...

I need to change the heating element on my dryer. how do I do this?


The exact process will depend on the model of dryer. I would suggest starting by looking at the assembly diagram for the dryer. You posted the question in the Kenmore section, so assuming that it is correct, you can get these diagrams from the Sears website. You can also order a new heating element there.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Things that could stop an 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.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I'm not familiar with this specific Dryer, but in most of them you can find their wiring diagram glued under the upper panel or the rear panel. Good luck !
