Will not dry no heat ge model dde9500ramad


Well it is not the fuse because it still runs just no heat. I would first try to reset the breaker and make sure 240 volts is getting to the dryer. Dryer motors work on 120 volts. The heater needs 240 to opperate. Sometimes the breaker will trip on the high load heat side or simply wear out. If that is good then you must check the element, To do so you need to remove the drum. You start by raising the top then getting the front off; then you take the belt idler loose and yank out the drum. The heater element is on the back wall of the dryer.

My worldpool dryer truns but will not heat up??


Hi,


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.

Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Check the thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) that is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.
If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation.


Please check the bellow link to have an in-depth knowledge as to when the dryer wont heat up...

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

WONT HEAT


This is a simple dryer to diagnose.2d23ddb.jpg The limits and heater or mounted in the lower left corner of the rear bulkhead. Unplug the dryer and remove the front panel.1d97909.jpg Remove the 2 screws holding the element and get it out. (only two wires to take loose) Get it out9f0a336.jpg and check it for continuity between them two connections or simply examine the heater for breaks. If all of that is ok The cycling thermostat might be whack. If all of that is good and you have 240 volts at the receptacle then the timer may have a burnt contact inside 2261b68.jpg

Procedure to replace heating element on 84152 electric dryer


This is a simple repair. Just follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG dryer. Dangerous voltage is still present even with the dryer turned off.

2. Remove the dryer vent exhaust hose and remove the back of the dryer.

3. The heating circuits are located on the right hand side (as viewed from the rear). The heating element is located inside the heater box. Simply remove the mounting screws on the heater box and remove the two wires on the heating element terminals. NOTE: You can leave the two remaining components (Thermal Cut-Out and Hi limit Thermostat) connected on some models. If you need to remove them in order to remove the heating element make sure you label the wires.

4. Locate the mounting screw(s) on the outside of the heater box that hold the heating element in place.

5. With the mounting screw(s) removed the heating element will slide out of the heater box.

6. Insert new heating element, making sure you avoid touching the coil and align the screw holes so you can reinsert the mounting screws.

7. Re-install the heater box and any remaining components.

Now...are you sure you have a bad heating element? Just because a dryer does not heat, does not necessarily mean the heating element is bad. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

The most common fail item that causes a dryer heating circuit failure is a blown TCO caused by poor dryer ventilation. Just something you may consider.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Dryer won't dry - no heat


Make sure you have 240 volts going in. If you do, then it can only be the heating element or the thermo cut off located on the heater housing. Also could be the thermostat on the housing as well. The heater relay is possible, but check that last, it's most likely the element.
