My dryer whirlpool still blow cool air but do not heat please tell me what the problem henry le


Bad heating element or bad thermo fuse.
You will have to unplug the dryer and remove the back to access the heating element. The thermo fuse is located on the side of the heating element.
If you don't have a meter to test the element and thermo fuse or just don't know how simply remove them from the dryer and take them to your local appliance repair shop and they can test them for you.

Dryer will not heat up


A clothes dryer can go for years without any problems. We come to rely on our clothes dryer, and we can even begin to take it for granted. Then one day we attempt to use our clothes dryer and it has no heat to it. Now we have entered the world of clothes dryer repair, and it is a world that can get expensive. Before you call out the repairman, try some troubleshooting tips to see if you can get the heat flowing back to your dryer again.

    Lint One of the easiest fixes for a dryer that will not heat up is cleaning out the lint trap and cleaning out the lint from the dryer exhaust. The lint trap should be cleaned out before each usage. Not only does cleaning the lint trap prevent the possibility of a fire, but a lint trap that is filled beyond capacity will cause the dryer to not heat up. If the lint trap is clean, then inspect the exhaust hose and vent next. If the exhaust hose and vent are cluttered up with lint, then the dryer will not generate heat. You can use your hand to clean out the vent, and broom handle to clean out the vent duct in your house. The flexible hose can be detached and cleaned by hand as well. Thermal Fuse A dryer will run on for a very long time, and when the thermal fuse gives up then there will be no more heat. Finding and replacing the thermal fuse is not difficult, but in order to do it you will need the manual for your dryer. Each dryer model is different as far as how to open up the cabinet, and locate the thermal fuse. You may need to purchase the thermal fuse online from the manufacturer, or you may be able to get a universal fuse that fits your dryer from an appliance repair store. Contact the manufacturer of your dryer to see what kind of thermal fuse they recommend. Thermal fuses cannot be repaired, they must be replaced. In most cases it is easy to tell if your thermal fuse needs replacing as you will see the center of it is burned out. Heating Element Another main culprit to a dryer not heating up is the heating element. According to Repair Clinic.com, the heating element is a coil found in the back of the dryer that the dryer uses to create heat. The only way to tell if a heating element is bad is to check the consistency of the current it generates with an ohm meter. If you are unfamiliar with how to do this, you can either replace the heating element and assume it is faulty, or you can have a repair professional test your heating element for you.please comment on these solution by say how helpful.by rate or vote

My gas dryer does not heat at all. I behind the lint screen was full of lint. I cleaned that out and still does not start to heat. Can you tell me what I should look for next? Thanks,



Hi

If your dryer is not heating, then check if the power cord is plugged into the wall. It may be loose or disconnected. 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. Now, check whether the heating element in your gas dryer is burned out by using an ohm meter to check for continuity. If the continuity is not there then you would need to replace the element. After checking the element, check out the thermal fuse to see if it's burned out. The thermal fuse is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. It's usually surrounded by a black resin material situated in a housing made of white plastic. If the fuse looks like it

My general electric dryer DDE5300 is no longer warm so clothes don't dry, though it runs. How can I tell if its the heating element or the thermostat?


You Will have to use an ohm meter and the tub has to be taken out. You can on a GE open the door and push in on the door switch and starte it with the door open and look straight in and see the heater come on but if either the heat element of thermostat is out the element wont come on. If you live in ahouse with fuses instead of circuit breakes or a fuse box between the dryer and main circut box check the fuses an electric dryer will run on one fuse but not heat if this is the case switch the fuses and see if it runs if not one fuse is bad.

No heat


Hi there,

Well first of all you can tell us the model number of your dryer, so we can help you...... anyway if your dryer is a electrical dryer then first you check 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. Please post comments for further help or information..........

Good Luck!!

My dryer does not heat. Fuse, thermostats, heat element all have continuity, power chord is good, 240v at plugin... stumped. It is a model # LER4634BQ1 Whirlpool SN# ME4471484


dryer_heating-element.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.
dryer_thermal-fuse.jpg Thermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
dryer_thermostat.jpg Thermostat

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.

A defective timer motor could also cause your dryer to not heat up. Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is no longer functioning as it should, replace either the entire motor assembly, or just its motor.

Dryer will not heat up when running. Was told to check the thermo fuse, ignitor and/or coil. Is that right? How do I check those things.


hello there
Please follow this procedure I have provided below and it will tell you how to test each one ok
Hope this is very helpful


Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:

Proper Voltage

If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.

Will not heat


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

My Kenmore electric dryer runs but no heat ....


Before I wish you luck i want you to review all of the possible reasons for your problem

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.
