Hi,

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....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

The heating element went out and the machines are not old enough for that, I wouldn't think but it isn't heating up or drying.


Before replacing the heating element, I would check the sensors that are attached to the heating chamber. They can be disk shaped with two wires connected to it. Also there may be a thermal fuse in that same area with two wires connected. Check those parts with a continuity tester or ohm meter after the wires have been disconnected and with the dryer unplugged. The thermal fuse runs about $20.00 dollars or so depending on the model.

Dryer does not heat up.


Hello there:
normally on these units if the dryer was working ok and then suyddenly stopped heating your heating element or the ignitor (excitor ) has failed and is need of replacement
so i would start by having these things checked first by contacting a local repair man to do a evaluation on the unit and if kyou still have a valid warranty i would use it ok
I hope that this is very helpful for you
Best regards Richard

Neptune dryer does not produce heat md5500


Did you cheak for dead short by touching one end of the element and one end on the heater housing?if there is continuity then you have a dead short .The lint is normal just clean it out.You may have a bad insultor that the element runs true in the heater housing.Also cheak the wires for dead short very carfully with flash light hope this helped:)

Heating Element


your dryer is a 220 plug check the circuit breaker first
one 110 runs the heating element and the other 110 runs motor and dials
this is usually the cause of dryer malfunctions
heating elements are simple big mesh of curled metal wire like a toaster but more of it
it would take alot to knock out the heating element
check the dials too these could be sticking or worn dials you dont have to run dryer to check dials
