Sounds as if the heater needs cleaning ,it's a safety switch that is temperature seneitive to prevent fire. unplug your machine if you are going to attempt it yourself and you will live to talk again

Replaced all parts for dryer because of no heat dryer runs drum turns had breaker and wiring going into dryer everything ok still no heat could wires be backwards going to replacement parts?


Electric dryers have as many as three thermal fuses. See if you might have missed one. One next to coils, one next to drum and one near the lint trap at air outlet. All three have different trip settings.

How do I run the dryer on no heat setting?


From the Owner's Manual:
"F" Variables [F4 to F16] (Electrical problem)
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.

I would say, before calling for service turn the machine off then unplug it for a minute then plug back in and try.

Dryer only shuts off when door is open


test the push button for open and faulty .However see this causes too.

Clogged Vent
If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But...if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.


Heating Element

Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace the heating element. You can check for an ohm reading but will need to refer to the service manual for proper reading. This sometimes on the tech sheet located somewhere on the dryer. Usually between 9-13 ohms.


Cycling thermostat

Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork . This thermostat usually has four wires going to it. Check the 2 terminals that are opposite each other and are the closer together of the 2. These 2 terminals should have continuity. If not replace the thermostat.

Two problems with Whirlpool Dryer


I would suspect the heating element. I bet you are asking why this clown is saying that when you already told him that on high heat it worked fine. SIMPLE! Your heating element is made up of five coils. For low heat your dryer uses two heating elements and for high all five. So if one or two of the heating elements are open and they happen to be the low temp dry setting ones, that would explain it. That model doesn't have the dryness sensor on it (according to my documentation) so the heating element is the most likely cause.
Hope this helps!

My frigidare affinity dryer is only starting on delicates and touch up, can you tell me why this is happening?


Hi.

If machine runs only in low heath cycles, then there is a problem with timer control, low heath selector, or heating assembly (cycling thermostat).

The first thing to do would be locating the tech sheet. The sheet is tucked inside an envelope located inside the control panel assembly. In the tech sheet you will find instructions to run a diagnostic cycle. The diagnostic cycle will return an error code that will help locating the fault.

With different Frigidaire Affinity dryers you need to press and hold Pause Cancel and SELECT for about ten seconds, then leave, put selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to HIGH HEAT and touch START to run the diagnostic cycle. The procedure for this specific model is described in the tech sheet.

Regards.

Garmin goes from Auto Pause/Resume constantly when moving.


Depends on speed. If you are running low speed (less than 3MPH) precision of GPS combined with low speed makes device crazy.

For walking, running, or country biking in hot climbing, set auto stop off.

Dryer runs hot on low heat setting


What kind of dryer do you have? Some dryers use a bimetal or snap-disc thermostat with a heating element under it to control temperature. the heating element is used for the low heat setting to make it turn off early since it will sense a temperature higher that what is actually there. If the heating element is bad then the thermosat will only operate at the high temperature. You should look at replacing that element.

Dryer doesn't dry clothes. seems to run on low heat.


Make sure dryer is unplugged. Take the back off and you will see two heater exchanges and probably the element. One of those heat exchangers is for hot setting. When you find out which one go to nearest electrical shop with it and order. I reckon thats what your problem is. I've changed mine and everything was alright.

No Heat - Electric LQC Test OK


Try and re-set your 220V breaker one time ,because your dryer will run 120V for the motor to run,and the other 120Vsupplies the electricity to heat the coil.Small chance it could be half the breaker is off.Second, if the advise above doesnt correct it than odds are its a bad igniter.Some dryers have a amall re-set on the high limit thermostsat
