What is the model number of the unit?

Drum turns on a 19 year old Maytag but no heat just cool air tumble.Help, cannot afford repair or new dryer currently.


It is most likely the heating element or thermostat, and since it is 19 years old, you might want to change both. You can go to www.searspartsdirect.com and plug in your model number and then find the heating element and thermostat in the parts layout.

It is not difficult to change either part - JUST MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG THE UNIT!

The dryer tumbles but does not heat. There is no


If you dry a lot, you may need heating coils. Heavy loads such as jeans and towels will put a premature stress on those coils.

Whirlpool model LER7648PQ1 won't heat up


There are a few possibilities- I'll take you through them:
1) Most probable: your heating element has gone bad- actually they usually break when they go bad/burn out. This will likely require some skill and some instructions for you to repair- plan on replacing the heating coil and the door seal for good measure, especially if the unit is more than 5 years old.
2) Less probable but possible: are you sure your drum is tumbling? if not, your clothes won't dry and you'll lose the element in short order.
3) yes less probable but still possible- the contacts on the switch dedicated to heat settings or the thermostat have gone bad, denying current to the heating element.
Good luck!!

I have a maytag model 747g dryer. I dryer tumbles


The heating element is burnt out. Unplug the dryer. Follow the wires from the control panel. They will go to the heating element. The element is probably held in by anywhere from 2 to 6 screws. Remove the screws and you should be able to pull out the element. The element is coiled wire that heats up when power is applied. If you look closely you can probably see a break in it. To get a replacement you will need the model number which will be on a metal plate either on the back of the dryer or inside the dryer door. Take the old part with you so you can do a comparison and make sure you get the right part.
