If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

Replaced all parts for dryer because of no heat dryer runs drum turns had breaker and wiring going into dryer everything ok still no heat could wires be backwards going to replacement parts?

Electric dryers have as many as three thermal fuses. See if you might have missed one. One next to coils, one next to drum and one near the lint trap at air outlet. All three have different trip settings.

Electric dryer will not heat?

If the electric dryer does not heat at all then there are some possibilities that have to be checked to confirm the fault.
1)check whether you are getting power to the dryer from electric out let to which the dryer is connected. The power problem can also occur if the fuse is blown or the circuit breaker is got tripped.
2) Other possibility for dryer not heating is the blown thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is located to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. This fuse blows out if the dryer gets overheated or any short circuit occurs in the house when dryer is in working.
3) The other possibility if the power is ok and if the thermal fuse is ok. Then the problem can be due to fault in the heating element. The heating element looks like a long coil of special wire. You can check heating elements continuity with an ohm meter. If there is no continuity that means the element is bad and you need to replace it. The heating elements cannot be repaired it should be replaced if faulty.
4) But if all the above mentioned possibilities checks out OK, and still the same problem, then there is a fault in the wiring. Check the main power cord of the dryer which you connect in the electric out let. If the power wire is got internally burned out or got cut in between the dryer will not get proper power and will not work Due to partial power.
This will help. Thanks.

Whirlpool electric dryer LER5620KQ1. won't heat up timer does not advance

Same problem with my Whirlpool Dryer: Model LER4634EZ2 which stopped heating. I checked the coils that was "OK" then I checked the fuse that was "OK" I replaced the Thermal Fuse and High Limit Thermostat then after starting the dryer the heat came on ... problem solved NO.... the dryer just kept running and running until I opened the dryer door. Not going to put 70 or so $$$ into this 10 year old dryer which up until 12/15/2011 worked fine.

No heat


If it is turning but not heating, check the thermal fuse if present. The fuse is also tested checking continuity. If the fuse is OK, check the thermostats in the heater assembly. If the thermostats are good, they will read zero or very low impedance at room temp.Depending on the model there are two or three thermostat/thermistors in the appliance.
If even thermostats are OK, check heating element. It must have continuity.
If element is OK, check wiring, then fan, then go for the timer control.

Here all parts.

Dryer will not run...checked fuses ok.....240v ok....what else could it be?

if it won't turn or anything its probably the neutral wire on the terminal block in the rear of the unit,they carry a high amount of current and can get brittle and break off or burn off in time check the incoming power connections first,if it turns but doesn't heat,then it may be your thermal fuse located in the vent duct housing inside the dryer if this opens you will not get any heat from either a gas or electrically heated dryer

Does not heat. Heating element was replaced and

Check the following to address this issue.

1. A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

2. Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

If all checks out OK above, replace the main control board.

Where is the fuse in kenmore elite dryer

Check your breakers first. Turn off then back on. Then check trhe wiring from the receptacle to the dryer and to the heating elements. The thermal fuse is located under the top. You will have to remove some screws to get to it. Bypass the fuse and if it works, then replace it. It is only 15 dollars. If all is O.K., then check the heating element. It may be bad especially if the dryer is over 10 years old.

There is no heat

Disconnect power and access your dryer fuses. Check and test your fuses for "continuity". Most likely, a white thermal fuse. Can possibly be your ignitor or heat element as well. Is your dryer gas or electric?

The problem could be related to one of the following; Not enough power from the house, a bad or broken heating element, a bad thermal fuse, or a brake in the wiring.

Do a continuity test on the heating element.
Do OHM reading on thermal fuse.
Check wiring to heating element.

Kenmore Dryer

If the motor can run, check the fuses in the house's panel. Electric dryers run on two phases of the 220-240 volts outlet; the motor on one phase, the heating coil on both phases. One of the two fuses may be burned out.

REMOVE the fuses before touching any component inside the dryer's housing.

If the fuses are OK, check if the the switch resting on the motor itself, has not burned terminal or wires.

Check if the heating coil is opened (burned)
