No heat


GOD IS STILL GOOD !!!!

ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or overheating.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Gas dryer heats at first then take forever to dry, auto dry setting does not advance


If it works to begin with and fails afterwards then that can only be them solenoids mounted on the gas assembly. Here is my home video which shows how to check and replace:

I have a Whirlpool electric dryer M/ WEP5300o that will not heat. I have replaced the Cycling Thermostat, High limit thermostat, Thermal fuse and heating element. It still doesn't heat. There are


If you have fuses on your electric panel it normally uses 2 fuses, 1 for electric power 1 for heat. The same may be true on the circuit board panel check this to eliminate this possibility

WED5321SQ0 dryer doesn't heat or shut off once it's running


well if ran all night you maybe be running a even heat or auto dry cycle. i would first try on a timed dry see if heat then. if does heat (which probably wont) you will be need to replace either the sensor or board that controls the auto dry. or a very small chance that the timers bad. most likely you have a bad heating element. if the machine doesnt heat on the timed dry, then you need to check continuity on the heat fuse(located on heat element housing). if good then check continuity on heat element. i would say you have a bad element or heat fuse.

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 thermofuse blown again


Probably restricted air flow caused by lint build up. Clean out dryer and all vent pipes, check damper outside and see if it opens. After you clean out everything run dryer on aif fluff/no heat cycle and see if there is good air flow outside. If it is electric it could be that the heating element is burned out and shorting out against the frame. This can cause overheating.

No heat coming into dryer.


auto cycle will only cycle through change in moisture level, yet other cycles advance on time only, so this makes sense with a no heat issue, dont know the make or model but look into improper power supply(check your breakers), then for a faulty thermal fuse. whe done troublesooting also ck and/or replace your venting as needed.they get too hot and blow fuses for safety reasons

What would cause intermittant heating in a Roper Electric Home Dryer?


the dryer vent, not the parts behind the dryer, where it goes into the wall to where the vent leaves the house has lint build up in it. this will cause the element to short cycle cause long dry times. if its really bad ive seen people have to run dryer 3 or 4 times to get clothes dry. clean out vent. this should solve problem

Re: no heat and timer not moving


  If the timer is set for a auto dry cycle,  the timer won't advance if not heating.  You need to check for 220 volts at outlet.  It's possible to have only 1 110 volt circuit.  May be a bad breaker. or outlet.  If you have 220 volts at outlet,  you need to have an ohm meter to check continuity of the thermal fuses and the heater.   Access by removing rear panel.  UNPLUG FIRST!!!!!
