Is it turning and just not heating?? If so it could be the thermal limiter fuse , there are generally two in the back.

Very simple. Remove screws at the base and the front panel. The heater is on the bottom easily accessed. The re-string kit is way cheaper than the "mailbox" Start here:

SOURCE: what is cost of heating element of dryer

Prices vary by model number and parts resources. The element usually cost somewhere between $30 and $50. Here's a few websites you can use for reference to get an idea of how much a replacement element can cost:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average cost of these components varies, so shop and compare. The first three websites I listed also have helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

NOTE: In many cases, if you are experiencing a no heat problem, the heating element is NOT the problem. The heating element has protection devices that are designed to regulate the heat temperatures. If the dryer overheats the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) typically will blow BEFORE the heating element. The replacement kit is much cheaper than purchasing a new heating element that may or may not be the problem.
If you have already diagnosed your problem, great. If you need to reassurance so you don't spend money you don't have to, the following links can give you some tips on how to troubleshoot a dryer:

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so I can accurately determine how your dryer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: Maytag Performa dryer blowing heating elements

Hi and welcome to FixYa. You should check the dryer vent ducting inside and outside the dryer for restrictions / clogs to include the vent flapper. Poor air flow through the dryer will cause hot spots. If the blower is slipping on the motor shaft this too can cause poor air flow.

When you change the heating element AGAIN... break out the crevice tool and de-lint everything you can access. Also pull out the lint filter and wash it with white vinegar and water then soap and water. Fabric softener sheets material builds up on lint filters. It looks clean but air will not pass through the lint filter.

I think once you get it all ceaned up including all of the ducting to and through the outside wall it will work normally with no problems. I do not think at this time that you have an electrical problem with the outlet supply.

There is one more thing to check and that is the high limit thermostat. It could be STUCK. It will most likely be labeled L180 or L190. That thermostat is suposed to open at either 180 deg or 190 Deg depending on which one is installed. If it does not open then you will keep cooking your elements. We test them with a match and an Ohm Meter. Match under the removed thermostat CLICK. Thermostat opens (no resistance)

Wish ya the best.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My two year old dryer will not heat. I cleaned out the lint filter and the duct. Those where not bad. I cant imagine if would be the heat element? What do you think?


Hi,

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...

I have a Whirpool Dryer model 3LEN 2000PW1 It runs but does not heat?? Four years old. Could it be the heating element?


Hello there:
Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

The problem most likely is the thermal cut-off . This is the small t-stat lookin piece , located on the upper portion of the element housing . You can unplug the dryer , remove the 2 wires , connect them togather , plug the dryer back in , to test . If the dryer then heats , replace the thermal cut-off . If still no heat , then possible bad element . Also see

Super capacity Amana dryer is less than 3 years old. It no longer dries the clothes. There is no heat.


check your heating element in the back of the unit for breaks, if there is not heat that is your problem. the other issue can be a fuse that blew not letting power get to the heating element but the easiest and cheapest thing to look at first is the heating element

Electric dryer won't heat


The problem is most likely one of the thermal limit switches/thermostats which is bad -- there could be several of them. Or, it is less likely that it is the heating element or a loose/corroded/broken connection to the heating circuit.

I would call for service -- it would be less expensive than a new dryer.

Maytag dryer: pye2300ayw


yes, it will. you should be able to take off the panel on the bottom of the front of the dryer. way in the back is the heating element. do not put your hands in there with the power on, but start the dryer and look in there and you will see if the heating element comes on. it will be like looking inside your toaster.

GE Prodigy Electric Dryer not getting hot


The exhaust hose in the back will not affect whether the dryer will heat. The hose just removes the used hot air to a place outside your house. I assume dryer drum spins, but you get no heat. If the dryer has gotten a few years of use, I suspect that the heating element has gone bad. Have you noticed that it has taken longer and longer to dry clothes than it used to? If so, most probably the element is bad. The element is not unlike a heating element in an electric stove, and is housed in a duct inside the dryer.
