Drying machine not working, the clothes always wet.

If the dryer doesn't heat, but the drum turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is blown, it will have to be replaced.

Amana dryer model YNED7200TW will not start. there is power, but start button does nothing. Resetting breaker did not work. Any ideas?

Thermal Fuse

Item #2986 (OEM Part)

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.

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...

Hi, i have got a zanussi tc480 condensing dryer that is several years old. the problem is that after the cycle is completed the clothes are still wet.can you diagnose the fault? if so,what part is...

if they are wet then it is not drying, if they are damp then it is drying but the vent tube is restricted. Here are common problems for not drying:

here is a website about the heating element:

between the two websites you should be able to repair the dryer, if I was guessing I would say thermal fuse, you can bypass the fuse and see if it heats, if it does then replace it as it is a safety feature and left bypassed will cause a fire. the common cause for thermal fuse failure is a restricted vent tube, clean the vent if it is/was the thermal fuse. Good Luck Tim

Won't heat. and i cant locate the fuse

my dryer doesn't heat up to dry the clothes. The drum is running but there is no heat - the clothes remain wet. Any ideas?

No heat when dryer running - Maytag mdg6000

Check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. These components can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity indicates a bad component. The thermal fuse is about one inch long and is located in the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Washer dryer works but no heat

Some dryers have a thermal trip which can be reset often from the rear. Other than that, best to check the heating element with a multimeter - this will show you if power is reaching it, and if so, the element is bust. If no power, then it will be a wiring fault or perhaps a problem with the PCB electronics.
