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.

    I have tested the continuity of the heating element several times and each time it shows to have continuity.

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.

Hi there am working on durangospork jeep 2002 the code i fine is p0058 plaese tell me what to do

HO2S heater circuit high, bank2, sensor2. Can be several things leading to the O2 sensor, the wiring to it or the sensor itself.

Some O2 sensors have a built-in heating element which is suppose to get the O2 sensor working more quickly than by waiting for the engine to warm up. The heating element can be overheating or the backfeed on the wire leading to the O2 sensor can be grounding on a bare spot.

You may need a special socket for installing the sensor. You could try replacing the sensor and hope for having good wiring. You will probably need to clear the computer if it does not self-correct.

This is not a complicated repair, but working underneath the car would be better on a hoist. Price the repair knowing what Code 0058 means.
You can ask how much to work on your car AND $ parts would be.

They give a labor rate for replacing the sensor and putting the car on the hoist. Not sure for Jeep, but I would think 1/2 hour to 1 hour.

Please rate my info. Also you will need to know which pipe this is attached to if doing it yourself. Parts clerks may have diagram for you.

Please rate my info.

Where is the heating element for the electrolux dishlex dx302 located? How do I remove it to test it?

The heating element is usually the big ring at the bottom of the unit, to test you will need a Multimeter and you should have a reading in OHMS. You will have to access the element from behind or some unplug? One really needs a service manual or diagram at least?
This reading OHMS, will be a result of the formula derived from the Elements, Wattage, Amps multiplied by Volts, W, of said element. Formula, W = A times V. OHMS = Volts divided by Amps.
EG: 2000W Element = 2000W/120V = 16.666Amps therefore to get OHMS we divide the Voltage by the Current(Amps) and we get our OHMS so, 120V/16.6A = 7.2OHMS.
So to get your expected reading you need to find out exactly what Wattage your element is, apply the formula, and derive the OHMS, your element should be within 10%. If it is it is OK, if anything else it is faulty, simple as that.
Sometimes it is the CCU board and not the element itself, if the element appears OK, then suspect either the CCU, (Central Control Unit) or thermostat or indeed the Thermistor sensor? One must work through the troubleshooting procedures to tell.

This, among others, is a very common problem these are not considered to be good machines, a quick search of the net, gives many horror stories of this and other common failures, however in finding all this i have been unable to find, exact answers or a service manual, or even a exploded parts diagram.
You maybe best served by getting a "Quote" for any prospective repairs and then make up your mind as to repair or replace, indeed it maybe best to put any larger amount of monies that may have to be spent on repairs, be put towards the cost of a new unit, with a warranty? As I wonder if this unit may simply continue to fail again, over the years?

Whirlpool AWOEAST912 - Error code F05

Hi there,

Well An F05 is a water temperature sensor error.

This occurs if there is a problem detected during the heating step of the wash cycle.

You will need to check the Water Temperature Sensor, Heating Element and the Heating Element Relay.

But as you says that your washer is only 4 months old so why don't you ask for warranty......
Please post comments if you need more help or information........

Good Luck!!

Your water temp sensor which happens to be a negative temperature coefficient went out of range during the heating mode. As the water temp rises the resistance in the NTC changes. This change is noted by the artificial intel/brain. When desired temp is achieved to sanitize the brain shuts down the heater. This is caused by a bad heating element or faulty NTC sensor or loose/broken wiring. Want a manual? I have one which give locations and resistance values and other good stuff: HERE

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.

The electric oven will not heat. Too the setting

If there is not heating at all, check the temp probe (SENSOR ASM (Oven Sensor Assembly)) the wirings to the elements, and the control assembly.There is also a thermal fuse that need to be checked.

If heating is poor, test both elements, check the vent system an control assembly.
