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.

Help Heatman! I am looking at buying a new washer and dryer from sears. The 800 series from last year, I got a great deal on it but have read the reviews and the problems seem to repeat themselves...


whenever buying useed appliance run them if its a dryer make sure heat comes on and stay on at least 20min about washers make sure they fill then adv to spin if toploader drains well and spins fast . if buying new sears stuff is all made by a 2nd party who knows who it could be in enless u havce the model # there a code that tells you if whirlpool,frigiidaire,lg,ge,bosch,fisher paychal,maytag. i belive the 800 series is made by whirlpool which overall good machines. keep your venting clean all the piping thats connect to it make sure it gets cleaned once a year from steam to stern. it will make a hugh difference how the dryer operates. the washer dont overload it and dont use liquid fabric softner that stuff gumbs up machine br4eaks it down faster les soap is better for machines too.

Mine is 4 years old and the pump went within 8 months! The dryer has had 6 new pumps in total! It was last fixed 6 months ago and now playing up again! I dont even constantly use my dryer! I am very disappointed with Siemens now, my last dryer lasted me 10 years and it was constantly on the go when my children were young! Here comes, tomorrow I have got to book another repair! No more Siemens for me.

Take too long time to get cloth dried


how much are you putting in ? Is it a 220 volt dryer? May have a dead line (electris) to heating coils, or thermaostat is not functioning and letting the dryer coils get to operating temperature. Your heat setting control may be faulty. I wouls look at heat control first.

It may be a shorted high voltage diode.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

Does the Maytag LSE7806ACE require a 220 plug?


If you hook it up to 120 volts (by connecting L2[red] to common [white] the dryer will operate, but your heating element will only produce 25% of the heat it would on a 220v circuit. The drying time would be about 3 hours, and the auto dry setting may not work. Heat difference is about 5000 watts of heat on 220v, vs 1250 watts on 120v circuit.
