If you do have 240 volts to the unit, your problem is typically with the Limit T-stat.

Typically, when the Limit T-stat is blown, you have to replace the other T-stat with it.

These T-stats will blow if they are old, and or if the dryer has a poor venting issue. Have been seeing a build of lint around the 6 o'clock position on the door gasket? If yes, the wall vent and or the dryer
's vent is flowing the right amount of air---causing the unit to over heat the heater assy for too many cycles.

I get you part number to both of the T-stats if you need them.

Good Luck.

DRYER WILL NOT HEAT UP


It's either the fuse, heating element, thermal cut-off or thermostat

Dryer will not start. Replaced belt and after re-assembly, nothing. I have tested the door switch, but nothing else.


Hello,

The most likely reason your dryer is not starting is because of a blown thermal fuse,it fits onto the heat elemenet housing behind the drum in about the 1-2 oclock position. To check it ya need to use a multimeter set to a low ohms setting and check the thermal fuse for ZERO ohms resistiance..if the meter display shown OL or if using a meter with a needle and the needle does not move the thermal fuse is bad and would need to be replaced.

This is what the thermal fuse looks like oldtech2332_115.jpg

Ge dryer way too hot. I have cleaned all the lint out but still way too hot. unplugged vent hose and ran machine still too hot. Took apart machine and tested continuity of heating element and its fine....


I do not know your definition of "way too hot". Remove the exhaust vent and insert a accurate thermometer in the dryer exhaust. Run the dryer on high heat. The temperature should get up to 165 degrees then cool down to about 125 degrees then back up to 165.
If it goes above 165 and stays there replace the high limit thermostat.
If it cycles correctly it is OK.

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!
