Hi, I actually have a TGDS840PQ1. Anyway, my problem is this.... The dryer DOES heat up. But when the cycle is complete, the clothes are still damp. Like they just don't dry completely. I've cleaned the lint filter and pulled the venting hse to be sure its free from lint and it is. So any thoughts on why the dryer wont completely dry the clothes? Is there a blower that pulls the air through the dryer? Cause it doesn't seem to be venting the air anymore. I guess I would compare it to a sauna. The warm air goes into the dryer but its not venting out. So thats why the clothes don't dry completely. What's causing the air not to vent?

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!!

GE dryer tumbles, but there's no heat


Hello coylejm, Thank goodness, 220v has a BAD reputation. Your hunch is correct. To confirm use a DVM to check the heating elements conductivity. Open one terminal of the element and measure ohms of the terminal. A very unlickley chance you damaged the control box. Merry Christmas.
