From what you are stating either the belt has broken or the motor quit working. Only way to tell is take dryer apart. Go to appliancepartspros.com put in model number and you will get schematics on your dryer, this will show you where all parts are located.

    belt is good. rollers are good. electricity is good. motor is free spining. now what.........

    Motor may be worn to wear it does not have the tork left in it to turn drum. Or maybe there is something stuck between drum and felts. Also could be not enough tension on belt, tensioner could be worn

Maytag neptune dryer heats but wont tumble


When you spin it by hand, is there resistance? Can you hear the motor turning? In fact, when you switch it on and it starts to heat, can you hear the motor turning, or is it silent?

Sounds like the belt is broken, in which case there will be little resistance.

If there is resistance, it may be the motor or circuitry controlling the motor.

How to fix a whirlpool gas dryer that tumbles but no heat ?



Igniter and Gas Valve Coils
TEST with a multi meter: The igniter is an electric conductor that works like the element in an electric heater, glowing hot enough to ignite gas when you turn on the dryer. This conductor can burn out, and when it does, it may glow, but it won't get hot enough to ignite the gas. At times it may give a reading of continuity yet fail mechanically and not get hot enough to ignite flame though it gets hot and glows and even may show Ohms or continuity ( close circuit) ?
Occasionally, the Gas safety valve and the electric coils that control the gas valve are defective -- they can wear out when the dryer gets old. When this happens, the igniter glows, but gas never enters the heating chamber or does not stay consistant.
Performing a continuity test on either part will help you determine whether or not you need to replace it. But the coils should also be tested for amount of resistance as well as Ohms. As they may be showing ohms yet not putting out enough resistance to keep proper gas pressure flowing. Most coils should show at least 1300 ohms ( GIVE OR TAKE 150 OHMS). Anything significantly less Thus u get an ignition but then it soon goes back out. The flame does not stay lit.

Air Flow and Heat
The motor that drives the tumbler also drives a fan that circulates air through the heating chamber and the tumbler and expels it through the vent. If the air can't circulate, perhaps because of lint blockage, the heating chamber overheats, which prompts the cycling thermostat to turn off the gas. The thermostat resets when the chamber cools, but the chamber heats up quickly and the thermostat again shuts off the gas. The result is that the temperature in the tumbler doesn't stay hot, and your clothes take longer to dry, if they get dry at all.

Warning
There's a big difference between a dryer that doesn't heat up at all and one that just doesn't get hot enough to dry your clothes. In the first instance, the problem is usually a defective part, and things should be back to normal after you replace it. In the second instance, the problem is caused by restricted air flow, and you need to clear the lint filter and vents and take steps to prevent lint build-up. If you don't, you'll use more energy for drying than you need and the dryer may continue to malfunction. Worse, you may have a dryer fire.

If you had line voltage to ground you'd trip the circuit breaker, without a schematic cannot pinpoint it exactly but all dryer gas or electric have a high limit thermostat which opens if the exhaust is plugged up stream, remove the exhaust tube connected to dryer and see if it heats correctly if it does the exhaust leading out of the house is plugged also the operating thermostat you referred to has a set resistance reading at room temp this tells and changes based on heat this is what controls voltage to the heater would need a full model number to give more specifics.

Doe's not dry, No hot or warm air


Hi


If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-

Electric Dryer---

1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.

2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.

3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.

4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.


Gas Dryer---


1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.

2. Check for the continuity of the heating element in your gas dryer using a multimeter. Replace the element if continuity is not there.

3. Inspect the thermal fuse if it is burnt out, it is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. Replace if necessary.

4. Check the igniter by first disconnecting it, and then place the probes onto the two contacts of the igniter. The meter should read under 100 Ohms of resistance, if it is above 100 then replace the igniter.

5. Check the continuity on the flame sensor. The sensors are usually located close by the igniter so are easily visible.

Hope this helps...

TUMBLE DRYER


Allybo check how the power cord is wired to the dryer. I have seen where the hot wire has been attached to the ground of the dryer and this will create a short which will trip the breaker.

No heat in tumble dryer


dav...first, find your breakers for the unit and turn both off then on. This unit runs on 220 volts and one breaker may stop all functions other than the motor. Not it? The back panel contains a schematic diagram. Use a multitester to find your way through the circuit. Get one at Ace or Sears or Radio Shack for $10. High limit switches and thermostat relays should show full continuity...no measurable resistance. Elements will show up to a few hundred ohms. Remember power off...220 volts can kill.

Won't dry


Sana, this will sound trite, but did you check your breakers? The breakers for your dryer will be in the main panel, outside the house. There will be two breakers dedicated to this circuit, probably 40 amp. If one of these is tripped, the unit will tumble but not heat. If the breakers are OK, I'm sorry to say that this problem will require the services of a professional to diagnose. There are a series of safety thermostats and a thermister that electricity must flow through before reaching the element. If any ONE of these fails, the unit will not heat but will still tumble. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
