Not heating is really a common accurance.
The first thing to check is your voltage.
Make sure you dont have a kicked breaker
as this will cause the dryer to run but
not heat. Check the cord for burns or
broken wires, then check the terminal block.
next I would check the heating element. This
can be checked with any multitester. Simply
remove one of the wires from the heating
element and read accross the heater for
continuity. Then check to see if the heater
is reading continuity to ground. If the
heater is good then move on to the thermostats.
remove one wire from the thermostat and then
check for continuity. If you find one that is
not getting continuity then you have found the
problem. If you have not found the problem by
this point is is usually best to call for service.
Misdianosis can get expensive so dont just run
out and buy that $130.00 timer unless you know
its bad. Good luck and I really hope this helps.

Maytag dryer no longer getting hot


There are several components on a dryer that can cause this problem. The most common is the heating element. There are also thermal fuses, bad timer, or improper voltage that can cause this as well. All are very simple parts that you can test with an ohm meter Or volt meter.

Dryer not getting hot


There's a thermal switch on the elements or the elements themselves may have burned in two and need replacing. Unless you know something about electrical and controls, I'd get a pro to check it...

NOT DRYER CLOTHS LIKE IT USE TO TAKING MUCH LONGER


Check for clogs in the vent air line. If dryer lint or some obstruction is slowing the air flow it will take longer to dry clothes. Also the dryer may not be getting hot enough. Check to see if the clothes feel hot or warm when you reach inside. If it feels hot enough it is likely an issue with air flow. heat and air flow are required to dry clothes.

My GE Profile Harmony Dryer is no longer Heating


Does it get hot when you turn it on, and then never gets hot again while its running? On my dryer the solenoid broke, when the dryer was cold it worked and the dryer operated properly because the dryer and solenoid were cold and the solenoid wire was closed, when the dryer was hot enough the solenoid opened and the heat would not restart. the solenoid is a coiled wire which is used to open the gas valve.

it could be your heating element but if you use dryer sheets take your lint trap out and see how well water will run thru it it may need to be washed in hot soapy water hope this helps

Lg dle7177 electric dryer


The cool light on the lg is on all the time. It is only actually cooling when it is flashing. You might have a blown thermostat. Call a tech and have him/her check it out.
