The motor runs on 120 volts. If you have a bad breaker or wall receptacle or cord you won't get any heat. dryer runs and all fuses oum out element oums out - f028c9d.jpgThe motor will however run the dryer. If the dryer is getting 240 at the terminal block then you may have a burnt contact inside your timer. if all other components check good find the terminal marked RH. Remove the wire (power is disconnected) connect one lead of your meter to that terminal with an aligator clip. Slowly turn the knob and check for continuity between RH and any other terminal on the timer at all locations on the dial. If you cannot get continuity on any other terminal then your timer has failed and will need to be replaced.37b8069.jpg

My beko dcrs76w condensing tumble dryer was blowing out cold air so we repaced element & thermostat buts still not fixed. We have cleaned out filters aswell. Any clues as to what the problem could be?

In most dryer, there is a thermal fuse and open from overheating. Generally, it installed on the dryer's exhaust duct. Typically, you must remove the back panel of a dryer to access the fuse.

The dryer runs just doesn't get hot. is it the heating element or is there a fuse somewhere?

More than likely the heater element has failed. typically there are no fuses for this application. Also, be sure that you have 220 volts at plug receptacle outlet, you may only have 110 volts feeding dryer and it requires 220 volts for heating unit and all other operations of the dryer. Hope this helps to answer your question.

Runs but does not heat up

If you live in North or South America - check the break first - make sure that half of it is not tripped causing only 110 volts (which will run the machine and motor) and not 220 volt (which the element needs to heat. Then check this video to troubleshoot element.

My Bosch Dryer is not heating, we have cleaned all the lint from front and from hose in back of dryer, still no heat.

Check your voltage. Take a volt meter and make sure it is set on 250 or higher volts. All electric dryers needs to have 220 volts going to them. One 110 goes to the motor and one goes to the heating elements. If you are only getting 110 volts only one side then it is your electrical problem. Check your breaker or fuses.

My dryer is running, but doesn't have heat.

All electric dryers use 220-240 volts of electricity to run. The elements that make the heat are what actually need the 220 volts, the motor that turns the drum only uses 110. If you have a fused service disconnect box, replace both fuses, as one side is gone. 220/240 is made up of two 110/120 lines coming in, if one fuse, one side, blows, then all that's left is the 110/120 needed to run the drum motor, but no 220/240 to run the heat element. If there is no service disconnect then check the breaker than runs the dryer, flip it off and then back on to see if that makes any difference. Sometimes it will. Then there's the possibility that the hi-limit thermostat on the heat chamber in the machine blew, letting the drum run, but not feeding the coils. If you're not real handy with tools you may want to call a repair tech for this one.

Dryer won't heat

The back panel doesn't come off for service!!! Most heating and control components are available behind the kick panel below the main dryer door..
With electric dryers my normal train of thought in diagnostics is to start with source of power. Do I have 220 volts available at the terminal board where the electric cord is connected??? Quite often I find a blown fuse, etc to cause it to stop heating as the motor will run fine on 120 volts as thats all it requires, but the unit will not heat with out 220 volts to the element..
best of luck, and have fun,

Motor does not turn

if coils is heating are you sure motor isn't running or just the drum not turning ? if drum not turning suspect belt ..if motor not running but element still heating suspect element is contacting outer case ..with coil touching case 110 volts is present even without motor turning if timer is turned to heat position element will not heat to capacity but will get hot enough to eventually blow element fuse

No heat from dryer

is it 220 volt dryer,if so check the plug at the wall and make sure you have 220,the plug runs off 2 circuit breakers at your electric panel,1 breaker may be no good so your only getting 110 volts to the dryer which will run the dryer but not the heating element

Kenmore Dryer Model 110

Using a multi-meter, check to be sure that you have 220 volts at the back of the dryer. If you do, unplug the dryer, take the back off and ohm out the t-stats, thermal cut-outs and element.If you can't pinpoint it to one of these then it will be in the controls or maybe the motor start switch.

ps, The dryer motor will run on 110 volts.
