Dryer does not heat up checked all thermostats and replaced heating element still no luck


hum... I ve seen where the motor was only getting 120 and not 240 and with most dryers they use 2 speeds or modes on the windings , 1 direction for drying with heat and the other to run minus heat thus if u only get 120 volts u have enough to run the dryer but not enough to run the heat to that dryer?

DRYER NOT HEATING UP


Matthew Campbell,
I understand that your Frigidaire electric dryer will run but is not heating up. What I would suggest would be to give the appliance a hard reset.
You can do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power at the Circuit Breaker for 3-5 minutes. After resetting it for the 3-5 minutes, bring power back to the dryer. Run any cycle and see if you are getting heat or not.
If you are not getting any heat to the appliance, it could be either something to do with the heating element or possibly the control board itself. The other possibility would be the wiring going between the heating element and the control board.
I would recommend contacting a local authorized technician to determine what exactly is the root of the dryer not heating.
-Best Regards-

Dryer running but not heating. How do I check heating element?


Check the following to address this non heating issue



1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Motor runs fine, heat element will not heat, replaced heat element, no luck. Safety's checked out, timer ok.


Make sure where you dryer plug cord hockes into the dryer has 220 with a voltage meter read from left one to the right one should get 220 from right one to middle you should get 110 and from left onetto middle you should also get 110 the dryer will run with 110 but will not heat

Roper dryer, timer doesn't time out and not heating up?


Dryer will run forever if it doesnt heat up, Dryer has to heat up and thermostat has to get hot and open to start the timer. Odds are rally great, it is your heating element.

Dryer heating element


There is a fuse in the dryer for the heat.
Before tearing into the dryer, make sure the power getting to the dryer is absolutely correct. (check power with the dryer running) Even with incorrect power to the dryer. the drum will still turn but there will be no heat.
Many a person has paid for expensive service calls for the problem you are having only to discover by the servicer that there was nothing wrong with the dryer but had bad power to the dryer......
