First make sure the vent is clean to the outside from the dryer,then it could be packed with lint inside the unit,after this is complete,then the hi-limit/cycling switch on the element case can cause early cycling and low heat output if the unit heats by electricity,ig gas it can be a cycling switch on the burner tube,radiant sensor on the burner tube,gas valve coils are weak on the gas valve

Samsung Dryer dv203aes/xac will not heat. Drum is rotating and lint was cleared from exhaust.


Check the following:
1. Does it have 220 volts (yes it runs, but dryers run on 110 volts)?
2. Check the heating element and the safety thermostats located on the heat element canister. Low air flow from any restriction like lint build up or mashed ducting or blocked air exhaust vent cap can either trip the safety stats or burn out the element. Clean dryer and exhaust ducting thoroughly and replace bad parts before placing back in service. Poor air flow is the number one problem with "No Heat" dryer issues.

Disconnect your dryer vent and run your dryer ,If your dryer works fine you have a clogged vent ,or poor ventilation. p s your dryer room will get humid so open window if one is in the room.

DRYER seems to blow a lot of fuses does one fuse run dryer and the other for heating element? dryer will run BUT not heat up


The typical reason several Thermal fuses(motor circuit) or Thermal cutoff (heat circuit) will go out is because or poor air flow so what needs to be checked it for lint build up in the filter housing below the lint filter and/or a chrushed or blocked venting from the back of dryer all the way to where it goes outside

The timer will not advance, it heats up on the correct settings, but will just stay on indefinately. Sounds like a classic Timer issue, but just want to ask for a second opinion, and ask what the part...









We have a dryer ( could be any make! ) that is consistently blowing fuses after about 15-20 minutes. We have taken the dryer apart to check for clogs in the venting system and to check if the heating core was okay and they seem to be fine. Any ideas?


Blowing the house fuses? If yes....the dryer usually will blow a fuse right away if there is a problem in the dryer....more often than not a fuse that blows after the dryer has been running a while it is a fuse box issue. A test: Put 2 new 30 amp fuses in and run the dryer with the heat on for 5-10 minutes, turn off the dryer and quickly remove the fuses from the house fuse box and see if they are hot at all ( especially on the bottom )....if the fuses are getting hot they are probably melting the fuse link and not really blowing = fuse box problem.

As for most things there are exceptions....a grounded heating element -may- blow the fuse after the dryer has been on for a while, it is easy to test for that as well. See. A burnt/loose power cord/plug -may- also give this type of a problem.





Dryer basics- Venting problems and power supply:
Most dryer "to long to dry" or "poor/low heat" complaints can be traced back to a bad or poor venting system and sometimes a poorly maintained lint filter. Do not go outside and put your hand under the vent opening and say " it is fine - I feel air coming out"...that is not good enough...take your venting apart, clean it ALL out and make sure the vent hood flapper works and that it is not clogged with lint. Make sure your venting system is short, straight and resistance free as possible. A poor venting system will shorten the life of your dryer, plug up the fan blower and duct work inside your dryer as well.
Gas dryers need 120 volts to operate the whole dryer. Electric dryers need 240 volts to operate the heating element and 120 volts to operate the timer and motor. You should see 240 volts between the black and red wires, 120 volts between the red and white wires, 120 volts between the black and white wires at the electric dryer main power harness. A blown house fuse ( or breaker ) would stop a gas dryer from working at all. A blown house fuse ( or a 1/2 tripped breaker ) would still allow the electric dryer to run but you would get no heat. Depending on which fuse goes, sometimes the dryer could be dead as well. If you have problems with a fuse letting go or a breaker tripping after the dryer runs for a while, normally the problem is not in the dryer but is in the fuse box.i think it will work

I have a newer but not brand new kenmore dryer. I have to run it twice to get a load dried. Serial number of dryer is ML4641775. Where is the heating element and how do I replace it?


If your dryer is STILL heating, but your clothes still won't dry, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire run of the exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks, clogs, or excessive bends. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. This is the NUMBER ONE cause of poor drying efficiency. A dryer in a clogged state, or having improper air flow, will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to OVERHEAT. This will eventually will lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
FYI: There are no adjustments that can be made to any of the internal thermostats or heating element to make it run at a higher temperature. All these components have a fixed setting. If the dryer still produces heat, the heating element is working. If the dryer is clogged, however, the internal protection devices, such as the Hi-Limit Thermostat and Internal Bias Thermostat will shut the heating element off prematurely to prevent the dryer from overheating, and to prevent damage to the heating element. Eventually, the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) or Thermal Fuse will trip and the dryer will not run.or produce heat.

Have to run dryer cycle 3 or 4 times to get clothes dry


If your dryer is STILL heating, but you are experiencing longer dry times and/or poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some items to check before you assume there is a malfunction with your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. Please include your MODEL NUMBER, so I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope you find this information is helpful.

Dryer runs will not heat


If this is an ELECTRIC dryer, the following link explains how to troubleshoot a no heat problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Begin by verifying your input voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240 VAC across the two hot leads (the left and right slots in the receptacle). If good, remove the back cover over the terminal block of the dryer (where the power cord is installed) and plug the dryer back in. Take a reading across the RED and BLACK wires at the terminal block. If good, your problem is in the heating circuitry. If bad, you have a bad power cord.

The reason I mention the input voltage is because many people assume it is good if the dryer drum is still spinning. The drive motor which turns the drum, however, only uses half the input voltage because it runs off 110-120 VAC. The heating circuits require the full 220 service in order to operate. If you are missing a portion of the source voltage, the dryer will exhibit the same problems you describe.

Read through the link I provided and pay particular attention to the section that discusses proper dryer ventilation. Most dryer heat related problems are actually caused by poor ventilation causing the dryer to overheat to the point of failure. If you haven't cleaned your ventilation ducting anytime recently, now might be a good time. Leaving a dryer in a clogged or poorly ventilated condition will cause repeated failures of any components you might be replacing.

If you have questions along the way, let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
