Most possible that the thermostat , the thermocouple , is faulty or the control unit is sensing the temperature in advance to quit.
You might have to start with the sensor - the thermocouple- check if after cooling the thermocouple the heating works, Next check on the timer controller, If there is a timing loss then it is possible that the controller is shutting off the heater. you might have to access and check the reason for the immediate shut down, if so the malfunction can be this unit.

Dryer heat is intermittent


It is probably clogged in the exhaust where the lint tube connects to your wall/house. Inside the wall can get very clogged with humidity and lint creating a goo that blocks the air from escaping.
Disconnect the dryer from the wall, put on some rubber gloves and reacg up into the wall and you can pull out globs of old wet lint, coins, and other junk trapped in there. Secondly, check on the outside of your house where the exhaust is released and make sure it's not clogged there too.

We have a Maytag Electric dryer that is not heating up totally. Removed the vent tube and seemed to help but I check the Ohm's on the thermometer and was working. Tsted the col for ohms and at the RX1...


Hi, If your resistance is 2-3 Ohms, then your element is on it's way out . It needs to be replaced. The resistance should be in the range of 7-20 Ohms on a 240 Volt dryer heating element with the multimeter set at RX1. Good work finding that.

There are some additional reasons a dryer will not dry, have no heat, or cause the element to burn out prematurely.

1 If the exhaust vent run distance is too long. i.e. more that 15 feet the heating element life will be shortened Why? Because in a long vent run the vapor from the most clothes condenses on the sides of the vent hose and lint sticks to it. This lint accumulates and reduces the internal diameter of the hose. This increases air friction and the element runs at a higher temperature, etc. etc.
Solution: Clean the vent system out, or replace with a shorter system, if possible. There is an accessory fan available that can be installed that allow you to have a very long exhaust vent run. See Link

2 Exhaust vent hose folded or squeezed almost or completely shut at back of dryer. This ocures when the machine is too close to the wall pinching the hose. No air carrying the moisture leave the dryer.
It can get hot and after the cycle is done. The clothes are still wet. Solution: Pull out dryer and unfold hose.

NOTE:
Don't use a dryer without a vent hose attached. The dryer will pull the hot air with lint in it back into the machine. Over a period of time this lint can accumulate in the machine and cause a "lint fire" Lint fires inside a dryer sometimes turn into house fires.

Hope this helps,
Happy New Year

Dryer smoking up house and threw exhaust vent smells like something burnt


Hello, Well the smell is most likely from lint that is trapped in the dryer burning. The first thing you need to do is check the lint screen just inside the door. Second is to take the vent tube off of the back of the dryer and check to see if it is plugged with lint inside of the dryer. Clean out any you can see, also if the tubing inside of the dryer is most likely plugged with lint and the heating element is catching the lint on fire. If let go without cleaning this will cause a fire! I work for an appliance repair company and have seen dryers catch fire due to them being clogged with lint, you have two options; first is to clean it yourself, second is to have an appliance repair technician come to your home and clean it. The second is easier and safer but the first is cheaper but very labor intensive. I hope that answered your question and helped. Good luck!

MY ROPER DRYER QUIT HEATING STILLS WORKS NO HEAT


The thermal cut-off , which is the small t-stat looking piece located at the top of the element housing ( on vertical mount elements ) or the far front of the element housing ( on horizontal mount elements ) , is usually the cause for no heat .

Dry not heating


Have you cleaned the exit hose thoroughly? Pulled the exhaust line and cleaned?
Thermostat controls heat. There is also a motor centrifugal switch, in the element circuit, that the motor closes to insure the motor is turning. Try another heat setting. There is more than one thermostat. You may have blown the 'thermal fuse' too, which requires replacement. The element has a contact in the 'timer' circuit too.
It is possible that your element has failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint filter and the exhaust vent tube and all the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is restricted.

Whirlpool Model LE7010XSNO. No Heat After Lint Cleaned Out


Those are likely possibilities. Also check the wiring for disconnected or burned terminals especially in areas that get hot. The element comes out easily to visually check it for breaks. If that's OK I'd look at the safety thermostat.
