Dryer kicks circuit breaker off after a few minutes running.


Hi gel937
Replace your thermostat, it is defective causing the dryer to overheat and kick the breaker

Dryer will not heat up


You have to check and see if the Circuit breaker is not kicked. One throw of the Breaker makes the Motor run and the other gives it the heat. If that is not kicked then it is more than likely the Heating Element or one of the sensors attached to the Heating Element.

Dryer won't heat maytag neptune mde 5500 ayw


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...

My dryer stop heating and will not dyr bt the tub turns and still but out air


Hi,


Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.


Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.

Good Luck and have a nice day.

Won't heat


Hi,

Visually verify household fuse blown or a circuit breaker tripped.
The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Electric dryers use 2 household fuses or circuit breakers. Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.
If the problem continues, call an electrician.

Good Luck and have a nice day.

Now you should be able to see the element heater box.

If you feel confident here are the main things to do onchecking for no heat Electric Heating Dyrer
1 Check for 220 Volt at the heater entrance to the heaterbox (accessible from picking up the top on most dryer models).
If you have 220vthere the heater element is out.
2 If you don't have 220v on the terminals of the heater theproblem is in the controls.
The fuse link, thetimer contacts, the centrifugal switch on the motor, and the heater safetythermostat and operating thermostat(s), are all suspect and have to beeliminated 1 by 1.
Hope this helps.
With any luck all you need is a new element. Clean the ductout while replacing the heater if so because the main thing that causes heaterelement burn out is low air flow. A kinked Dryer vent hose, lint, and pluggedup fan circulator on the motor, or if yours has little holes in the insidecabinet where the air is taken to be heated and recirculated, these can getclogged with lint also and cause a problem are the 4 main causes of low airflow..

Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly Thank you andgood luck.
