Ohm the heating element for continuity
There is a thermal cutoff at the top of the element case with 2 wires
Hook these two wires together for a check or ohm it for continuity. . The dryer should run. unless it is a more tech problem.Also check for 230 volt at the wall and at the service cord at the dryer. A dryer will run on 115 but it will not heat.

What can be wrong when the dryer is running but there is no heat?


Hi

I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the thermal fuse that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if it is bad then it should be replaced, as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then it can be due to the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have a speed queen dryer and all it does is hums and instantly has a burning/hot smell. Any help would be great, thanks.


Hello James,
If you can rotate the dryer drum easily by opening the door and rotating by one of the drum baffles and it rotates easy and noise free,the problem is going to do a bad motor

Regardless of settings, my Amana Commercial Dryer does not stay hot all the time whilst drying. Sometimes when I open the door, the air clothes are cool to the touch. Then some time later they are hot...

Amana dryer not advancing on auto


Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.

You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.

Dryer quits after being used for a while and won't turn back on


It is overheating.
You are luck it puts out any heat.

You didn't say if it was Electric or Gas?

If electric, the the airflow thru the dryer is restricted or a sensor is bad and 'lying' to the CPU. Check the filter, check the hoses for lint, check the outside vent flap to be sure it isn't stuck (possibly painted) closed. The air has to BLOW a certain CFM or neither ELEC or GAS type will turn on or shut off prematurely (Gets too hot too quick).

If Gas, the thermocouple that tells the CPU that the 'heat is on is 'lying' or the sensor that tells the CPU the Air movement is OK' is bad.

My dryer wouldn't heat because a thermocouple in the exhaust pipe was lying - stuck ON and telling the dryer it was already hot enough. ;-) and my Furnace turned on and off for 10 minutes b/c the airflow sensor was jammed.

If you do the troubleshooting, do NOT forget to unplug first!

Gas dryer continues to run on the Auto cycle.


try to get the manual for the dryer you got and locate the moisture sensor if this sensor is bad what happen is that the automatic timer thinks that the clothes still wet and continues to dry once the sensor detects no moisture then it shut off the dryer normally is located behind the dryer on the exit line of the air duct and tested for conductivity and see if is good or not

My dryer stopped heating. Everything else seems to work. It still runs, but only feel cold air.


Electric or Gas?

If electric, the element is gone or a fuse blew or the airflow thru the dryer is restricted or a sensor is bad and 'lying' to the CPU. Check the filter, check the hoses for lint, check the outside vent flap to be sure it isn't stuck (possibly painted) closed. The air has to BLOW a certain CFM or neither ELEC or GAS type will turn on.

If Gas, the pilot isn't lit or the electronic ignition isn't firing or the gas supply valve is bad/stuck or the thermocouple that tells the CPU that the 'heat is on is 'lying' or the sensor that tells the CPU the Air movement is OK' is bad.

My dryer wouldnt heat because a thermocouple in the exhaust pipe was lying - stuck ON and telling the dryer it was already hot enough. ;-)

If you do the troubleshooting, do NOT forget to unplug first!
