THEN IT IS TIME TO BUY A NEW DRYER. WIRES ARE USUALLY HARD TO COME BY UNLESS YOU CAN FIND AN OLD DRYER WITH GOOD WIRES ON IT AND PUT ON YOUR DRYER. GOOD LUCK.

Dryer runs but does not heat up


The heat element may need replacing. They burn out once in a while. Check all fuses as well and if you have it apart make sure all wires are plugged together where they are suppose to be. We had a wire that pulled apart and the repair man came and five minutes later he left with me paying a bill.

I have a kitchenaid prestige gas clothes dryer. Model #KGYS677EQ1 . It is producing no heat at all, but it is tumbling fine. Can you please help me figure out the problem?


It could be a few things, but the most common is the heating element is burned out. Un-plug the dryer. Remove the cover to expose the wires attached to the heating element. Take a Ohm meter to test the heating element after the wires are un-plugged.

Why is my kenmore dryer sparking and tripping the breaker?


You can cut the old wires and apply new connectors but you have to have the right tools to put on the connectors. A new cord is not that expensive and it would be easier than trying to repair the old one if you have never done it before. Good luck

Remove front panel ge spacemaker dryer


Here's the trick: The Spacemaker dryer is the same as many other GE dryers but is upside down!

1. Unplug the dryer.
2. Flip the dryer upside down so the white panel is now on top and the unfinished steel panel is on the bottom.
3. Remove the 2 screws that connect the bottom, white panel from the back and lift up to remove.
4. Pull off the Settings and Fabric knobs on the front of the dryer. Take off the front control panel (remove the 2 screws).
5. Remove the 2 screws that attach the front panel (located behind the control panel you just removed). Hold the dryer drum by the top edge and pull the front panel away (note that the panel will be hooked to the rest of the dryer at the bottom corners). DO NOT PULL AWAY ENTIRELY!
6. Disconnect the wiring that is attached to the front panel (these come apart easily by hand but you might want to mark the wiring so you know where to connect it when reassembling).

No heat at all.


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse and or heater element, both very simple and affordable to replace. Try replacing the thermal fuse first to see if that's the problem. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. If this don't solve your problem you will need to replace the heater element. To replace the heater element, with the back cover off of your dryer just look down and to the right of were the air blows out. You will see the electric heating unit with two fat red wires plugged into it. Unplug these wires and you will see on the sheetmetal housing two screws that hold it on, one on each side. On older elctric dryers there is only one screw that holds element in place, it is on the bottom center of element screwed in from behind. Remove screw(s) and remove old heater element. Now, lay the new element next to the old one and take notice that there is a heat sensor attached to the old element where one of the red wires unplugged from. Gently remove this sensor and install it onto the new element in the same location as the old one. If you have an older electric dryer, the old heater element doesn't have the heat sensor on it, just skip this step. Now, plug in your two red wires and re-install your heater element. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

Dryer just quit heating


First-***DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICITY***. Open the back of the dryer. The element will be in a flat metal tube running from the top to the bottom of the back of the dryer. There will be a few wires connected to it. Mark where these go for reassembly. The heater wires are inside the tube. The whole assembly comes apart quite easily to replace the element. It looks like a stretched out spring.

Hello sir,


I think this is voltage problem. At the time of using u received high voltage of current so it burns.It can be repaierd. Just replace that particular part only. Go to authorized service center and replace only that burned part.

thanks
