My dryer won't heat anymore, could it be the heat element?

It could be the heating element, but it could also be the thermal switch, a round button that can sense the heat. One of the wires that go to the heating element go through the thermal switch. It's held on by two screw and is an easy repair.

Model LEQ9508PW1. It has stopped getting hot. Just stopped putting out any heat. I assume that it is probably the heating element that has gone out. Is there anything else I should check first before...

Check first the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat located on the heating element housing by bypassing the said components. Disconnect power then remove the rear access panel to access the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat. Disconnect the wires of each component then connect them together and insulate it properly. Reconnect the power then start the dryer. The problem is in the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat if the dryer heats up. Replace both parts and it should solve the problem. It is an easy and cheap repair to make.


Also bypass the cycling thermostat if the dryer still doesn't heat up with the thermal cut-off (cut-out) and the high-limit thermostat both bypassed. If the dryer still doesn't heat up, take the heating element out and inspect it for damage. Replace the heating element if damaged.

Oven does not heat up

this is a pretty common problem. I had it myself. Chances are that the heating element is bad. They are easy to replace. Most hardware stores sell replacement elements. Lowes, Home Depot, etc. Just tell them the make and model number. They will give you the correct one. However if you don't have the make and model number you may be able to identify it by simply looking at it. Make sure the electricity to the range is off before attempting to repair it. You remove the old element and replace it following the directions given with the element. Usually only 2 screws hold in place. Hope this helps

Dryer drum turns, no heat, replaced thermal limiter

Your model which we call the 417, is not usually easy to work on. The heating element is located behind the dryer drum. The drum has to be removed to change the element. There is a lot involved but given the cost of a stack unit the element and labor may be worth it.

Tumble dryer not giving off heat

It could be the heat limiter switch which is either one or two run in series little button looking things near the element on the back, usually under a bowed out cover. Also check the resistance on the heating element after you have pulled the wires that go to the terminals so you don't get a false reading. Other than that it gets into checking contacts on the timer itself and that gets a little lengthy in discussing. Hope that helps.
