    Have you tested the fuse circuit with a meter for continuety? Not the fuse but the entire wired loop?

I changed my Whirlpoool Duet heat element and it doesn't turn red (doesn't get hot). Continuity is good. Changed fuse to a new one.... need help...


Make sure you have 220 volts across the element when energized. Also check the amp draw...should read about 12 Amps.

Dead, has power going into wiring, but wont do anything no lights or nothing could it be the thermal fuse?


It is almost definitely the thermal fuse. However, you also need to determine why it blew the thermal fuse. This fuse is in place to protect the Control Unit from overheating cause by to high of an amp draw from the motor, the heating element, or a dead short in one of the solenoids.

Replace the thermal fuse, which is located on the Control Unit, behind the Control Panel. After replacing the thermal fuse, start the dishwasher and using an amp meter, test the amp draw of the unit at the supply connection.

During the water fill, you should only see 0.1 to 0.2 amps at the most, and possibly could show 0.0 amps. Once the wash motor turns on, you should see somewhere between 1.2 and 1.8 amps. If the amp draw goes over 2.0 and stays there, you have a bad wash motor.

The best way to check the amp draw of the heater is to put the unit into a field diagnostic mode. To do this, cancel the cycle and wait for the unit to shut down (standby mode). In this order, press "HI TEMP WASH - AIR DRY - HI TEMP WASH - AIR DRY". Air Dry could also be labeled No Heat Dry or something similar. All of the LEDs will light up momentarily and the heat element will be turned on briefly. The amp draw of the heat element can read from 5.5 amps to 7.0 amps. If the amp draw of the heat element goes above 7.5, chances are that your heat element is bad and needs to be replaced.

My dryer stopped heating and i changed the vuse and blow again can u tell me whats the problem thank u


Hi,
The blown fuse is most likely caused by a short circuit in the dryer.
The first component I would check is the heater element as this is a highly stressed component in any electrical appliance.
Replace the blown fuse, then disconnect the wires to the heating element( Make sure you insulate the wires so as not to cause a short circuit against the dryer body).
Now turn on the drier & see if the fuse still blows. If it still blows, the problem is then most likely with the drum motor.
If it doesn't blow, you have only to replace the heating element.

Best wishes,

Roper dryer does not heat . replaced heating element and thermal fuse. what's wrong


No heat at all is usually the thermal fuse, the high limit thermostat, the heating element or you have a bad breaker at the box and are running on 1/2 phase (or 110 only).


With the power OFF and the dryer unplugged. Use and ohms meter (borrow one or pick up a cheap one for around $10-$15) & check the high limit thermostat (right hand side at the base of the housing for the heating element), take the wires off both terminals and check for continuity between the terminal (set the meter of ohms place the black lead on one terminal of the thermostat & the red lead on the other terminal, doesn't matter which, the needle should move, if it doesn't, replace the thermostat).

You can check all the thermostats, fuses, door switch & the heating element this way.

Are there fuses in the dryer? Not getting hot. Could it be the heating element?


Hi

If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-

Electric Dryer---

1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.

2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.

3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.

4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.

Hope this helps...

Roper model rex5634kq1----won't get hot---already removed &ck'd heating element & attached part (thermostat?)--they're both ok--what else could it be?


There's no heat If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Power from the house Heating element Thermal fuse Wiring Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. 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.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
