Drier heats up in beginning of cycle but after that never heats up again during that same cycle.


Hello,

While you didn't say im suspecting it a gas heated dryer??

If so here is whats wrong with it;
The reason your gas heated dryer starts off heating ok,but a part way through the cycle it is no longer heating as it did when it started,is beacuse the coils that open the gas valve are getting hot and breaking down when they are warm. At start up of cycle the coils are cool,but when the dryer heats up as it runs the coils that are weak can not handle the heat and do not open the gas valve. Replacing the gas valve coils with fresh,strong ones will open the gas valve the entire duration of the drying cycle. All appliance manufactures use the same exact gas valve coils and label them with their unique part number. Having been in the service business i know they are all the same and the part number for the least expensive gas valve coils is 279834
They can be purchased at your local appliance parts store on online at
searspartsdirect.com
repairclinic.com
apwagner.com
apdepot.com
midwestapplianceparts.com

To replace the coils,remove bracket over them(dont worry about where it says dont grip thats for when dryer is plugged in) unplug them and install new ones,that bracket has notches in it and the coils have tabs that inter lock so they position them self exactly where they fit.

This is what the coils looks like

My kenmore 70 series dryer is working but no heat


The heating element in the dryer is got short and causing this problem. If the heating element checks out ok then its faulty timer motor causing the problem.this 2 parts are to be checked.First the heating element and next the timer control board motor. Locate the heating coil for the dryer along the back of the appliance behind the drum. The coil resembles a large, stretched spring.Check the back of the dryer to see if the heater coil is warming up while the dryer operates. Keep hands clear of the dryer at all times while inspecting the coil. If it does not begin to show obvious signs of warmth within one minute, the coil is likely burned out and must be replaced.You can also test it with meter.If there is no continuity the element is confirm faulty and needs replacement.--------- You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com .--------- this should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

No Heat


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back of the machine and try to
locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air duct you will find
the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor. Once you have located the heating coil, remove
the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it
is faulty. If the heating coil is ok, then: You can check the thermostat/thermistor by removing
the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape. If the coil heats up then replace
the thermostat/thermistor. DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST. This could cause
a fire, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine. I will include these two web
sites for parts and further help:

I have a whirlpool dryer. What is a element on the dryer.


The Element you ask about is normally called the Heating Element or Heating Coil. It is what heats up, then the blower blows air over the heated coils to dry your clothes.
