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.

My dryer works on high heat on the timed side of the knob, but won't work on the low heat and high heat (more dry, less dry or energy preferred setting)


Does this mean the timer wont move or it will not dry ? if it will not dry it is more than likely the timer , if it wont advance then you have a shorted element

Wrinkles clothes terribly. Solutions.


Check your settings on your dryer. See if it's on a longer duration of time to dry. Dryers have different wording depending upon the make and model. If you're trying to dry smaller loads the heat settings s
does not have to be set for very long. Heavier, loads with thicker clothing will need to dry a little longer. When you take the clothes out of the washing machine, do you shake the clothes before putting them in the dryer? And do you use dryer sheets? Believe it or not, they're not only used to help make your clothe's smell fresh but they also help elevate static and a few wrinkles.

Wrinkled clothes


My wife, who runs "dryer central", stops the dryer short of complete drying and hangs the clothes that are easily wrinkled.
You may also have the heat set too high, or the time set too long, causing the problem.
Try experimenting.
Be blessed.

My dryer's cotton/time dry/wrinkle free option know turns freely. Dryer will not start.


Take the other knob from the other switch nd put it in that place. It should turn then . You will be able to turn it on by a pair of pliers until you get a replacement knk.

I have an electric Estate Dryer made by Whirlpool TEDS840PQO. It has "Timed Dry", "No Heat Fluff" and "Auto Sense Drying" settings. On the Auto Sense Drying it has...


Verify that the wrinkle prevent switch is good. If so, the timer is likely the problem. Sometimes the switch contacts inside the timer can be cleaned to restore operation, bit it is a tricky item to disassemble and reassemble.

What is this feature-"Wringle Prevent"


Hello,
What the wrikle prevent does is after cycle is done if you dont go take clothing out right away is will tumble the drum without heat for 30 seconds every 10 minutes till the door is opened so the clothing doesnt sit there and wrinkle but gets tossed around lightly so wrinkles dont set in.

Dryer will start to heat up and then the heating element will stop and it will cool down and then it will start again. It is taking a long time to get clothes dry.


Some of these have a knob setting for "wrinkle free" and they can malfunction to the point that they do not allow the heater to stay on long enough. I personally do not like the wrinkle free features for even another reason.....if you do not remove the clothes at the end of the cycle then it will sit there a few minutes and then automatically turn on for a few minutes to remove the wrinkles and then rest again and repeat this cycling on and off indefinitely for hours or days until you completely remove the clothes...wastes energy and a bit scary to have it come on by itself. So...look to make sure you are not using the wrinkle free settings and then see if it works ok. If not then you may have a bad timer control.

Bosch dryer wta3500ug start runing gos on and off over and over with no heat...?


nizaraaa:

What you are describing sound as if you have the dryer set on a Wrinkle Sheild setting which it will go on and off for a set time with a low heat, so wrinkles do not set in the clothing.
