SOURCE: Hoover Condenser Tumble dryer HSC 170 not heating up

The heating element have got old and brittle over time and finally gave up the ghost. But it is not always the element. It could be one of the safety Hi-limits have blown. All parts of the dryer will have continuity if its working properly. Test for continuity by using a meter set on Ohms,or use a poor man's meter. You can make your own poor man's meter by using an ordinary flashlight . Break the circuit in the flashlight and add a couple of wires to it so that you can make the light come on in the flashlight, that's right hot wire that flashlight. When the bulb lights up you have a circuit! You now have a poor man's meter. The next step is to check each little gizmo on the dryer that the wires attach to. All the limits attached to the side of the heat element, the door switch (when door is closed) etc.should have continuity (closed circuit)(the light should come on in the poor man's meter) If you come across an thing near the blower housing with 2 wires attached to it, that is a thermal limit, a safety or a control thermostat (So as not to get a false circuit you need to remove one of the wires to each thing you check) Look for lint buildup or blocked vent going out the house. If everything is good and you have paid the electric bill, then the timer could be bad.

My electric Asko t 721 dryer is not heating


You may have an open thermostat or burned out heater element. The easiest and safest way to diagnose the problem is to unplug the dryer, open the control panel, and use an ohmmeter to check for resistance between the temperature selector switch and the opposite leg of the 240 V plug. If it's open at both the medium and low heat terminals, check the thermostats. You'll probably need a wiring diagram to identify the connections - they're color-coded to make it easier.

I have a Whirlpool Dryer Model number GEX9868JQ0 and it will run however; it is not blowing hot air? How do we remove the kickplate (front or back) to check out what is wrong? Please advise.


A typical problem that causes tumble dryers to stop heating up is the thermal overload cut-out devices. These are safety devices, and are some times "single-shot". That is, if they operate, and shut off the heating element, then they need to be replaced, usually as a pair along with the thermostat (they look very similar). The other common fault is that the heating element fails. However, if the thermal cut-out was the problem, LOOK FOR A CAUSE. If it is a condenser drier, check the condenser box is not clogged with lint/fluff

Condenser Dryer turns but no heat


Check with multi-meter for power on the heating element's tags (115/220V). If it does get power,you should replace the heating element. In case of no power- you should replace the thermostat. Good luck!
