I attempted to locate an answer to resolve the issue for you, but you have not provided me with enough information to access my service database. Please observe the TIP below, and post me back and I will be happy to assist you further. Should you require more extensive consultation to help resolve your complaint(s), you may contact me through our premium chat service.

Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.
If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

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.


If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.

Samsung Dryer dv203aes/xac will not heat. Drum is rotating and lint was cleared from exhaust.


Check the following:
1. Does it have 220 volts (yes it runs, but dryers run on 110 volts)?
2. Check the heating element and the safety thermostats located on the heat element canister. Low air flow from any restriction like lint build up or mashed ducting or blocked air exhaust vent cap can either trip the safety stats or burn out the element. Clean dryer and exhaust ducting thoroughly and replace bad parts before placing back in service. Poor air flow is the number one problem with "No Heat" dryer issues.

MY DRYER DONT START,she make a sound but not start


Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

I understand you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dryer not starting. Let's try resetting your dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is best to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your dryer. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, then at this point, you may want to connect with a local servicer who will be best equipped to pinpoint the problem. You dryer may either be experiencing a communication error with the main control or the timer itself may not be operating correctly. If you don't know a qualified technician, you can use the service locator option on the manufacturer site to find one near you.

Heat but take to much time to dry


The first thing I would check is to make sure your exhaust line is clear. Most problems with long drying time stem from something slowing down the air flow through the exhaust line. If you have access to an electric leaf blower and you have a long exhaust line, you can use the blower to try and clear out the line. If you get the line clear and you are still having problems you may need to check your thermostats because they could be turning the heater off too soon. If you have moisture sensor on your dryer it could also be turning the heat off too soon if you use dryer sheets. Look for either one or two curved strips of metal either on the back wall of the drum or on the inside front wall of the drum. Take some rubbing alcohol and some cotton balls and rub the metal strips. If the cotton ball turns blue there is a build up on the strip from your dryer sheets. Keep cleaning until it no longer turns blue and then try a load. Hope something I have written will help you.

Samsung dv218eb dryer runs but won't heat


No heat almost always means a heating element. But if you ar talking low heat, then check the lint filter; exhaust pipe for clogges and that the fan is circulating the heat up to the drum.

My Whirlpool clothes dryer model GEW9200LW0 stopped drying completely. The drum turns but no heat. It began slowing down the heating process approx. 2 years ago. Any suggestions?


Electric Dryer Does Not Heat
  • If your Whirlpool electric dryer is having trouble heating, you should check all of the thermostats, the thermal cut-off, all fuses and the electric heating element for continuity and proper connection.

Can you temperarly run dryer with out thermo fuse?


The thermal fuse, if blown, usually blows for a reason. In most cases this is attributed to a dryer that does not have sufficient ventilation and has become clogged either internally or somewhere within the ventilation ducting. I would strongly recommend that before you attempt to by-pass a safety device,that you try to resolve the problem that may have caused the thermal fuse to blow in the first place. Failure to do so, can result in a more significant failure of the dryer and/or become a potential fire hazard. If you need some advice on how to trouble shoot an ELECTRIC dryer, the following links can give you some guidance on some of the most common problems:

In severe cases of dryer vent clogging, you may experience condensation inside the drum and/or vent exhaust. The dryer exhausts warm, moist air. If the heat and moisture have no where to go, it will condensate inside the drum and exhaust vent. Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. This is the NUMBER ONE cause of poor drying efficiency. A dryer that is clogged, or has restricted air flow, will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to OVERHEAT. This eventually will lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards. There are no adjustments that can be made to any of the internal thermostats or heating element to make it run at a higher temperature. All these components have a fixed setting. If the dryer still produces heat, this usually a good sign the heating element is working. If the dryer is clogged, however, the internal protection devices, such as the Hi-Limit Thermostat and Internal Bias Thermostat will shut the heating element off prematurely to prevent the dryer from overheating, and to prevent damage to the heating element. Eventually, the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) or Thermal Fuse will trip and the dryer will not run.or produce heat.



NOTE: If you have already determined the exhaust ventilation is clear from the point where it leaves the back of the dryer to the point where it exits your home, you need to check the vent hose run to ensure there are no excessive bends or kinks that can be causing choke points that restrict air flow. If the vent line checks ok, then you need to inspect your blower fan housing inside the dryer to ensure it is not clogged. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

My Kenmore HE5 dryer will not run without blowing an internal fuse. The repairman replaced the fuse, and it blew again. The dryer heats up but will not turn it's heating element off until the fuse blows....


Has any one checked the exhaust vent,other than a bad thermostat the number one cause for the thermal fuse to open is a clogged or restricted exhaust vent flow, the entire vent system needs to be checked ( not just the hose from the unit to the wall) for proper air flow. Turn the unit on TIMED ,AIR DRY (NO HEAT) and go outside to the exhaust vent and check the air flow,if there is any question as to weather the air flow is sufishent get someone out to clean the exhaust vent ,it always a good idea to clean out every few years regardless to help prevent build up of lint witch could cause a fire......Hope this Helps Good Luck
