Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Also, 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. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Rylee

Hi my dryer is only just over 1 year old so of course warrenty is up and it wont heat. it runs and circulates but no heat, my husband cleaned out the vent tube what else can we do?? it cant be major its...


it could be the heating element even though it is just over a year old, i have seen heating elements go out on 3 month old dryers, it also could be a thermostat the best thing to do is make sure it is getting the full 220 volts going to it, if it only has 110 volts the motor will run and have no heat and vise versa, then if that is good get to the heating element and look it over real good most of the time the heating coil will be broke into it wont look burnt just broke

LG DLE2512W dryer approx 3 years old error message to "check filter". Dryer has stopped working. What is the problem? Do you have a schematic of the dryer I can download?


I just had this problem with my 5 year old today. I unplugged it (after checking the line and the regular filter to make sure that they were clear). since there didn't appear to be a real problem. It works fine now. It wasn't having any problems before the light started flashing and it doesn't appear to be having any now. Hope this helps

2 year old maytag gas dryer blowing warm air


Hi, Is there ant heat at all? Is it possible the dryer heats at first and stops later in the cycle? The first thing to check is the 4" vent going to the outside. Make sure it is cleared of lint and that it is not pinched off at all.
If the vent is ok, you might need to replace the coils on top the gas valve.
I can help you with this. I just want to narrow it down.

Dryer won't start


belts, as in 2?? you do have an old speed queen. did you make sure the blower is able to turn freely?
if so then you most likely have a bad winding in the motor. it is costly to replace and you should go out and get a new dryer. too much money to fix this old unit.
by the way the model number is under the front panel in the center, on a metal plate.
doesnt matter since you know its 25 years old and its time to update.

vpflueger,
Hi,
I am not sure why.
But I will tell you that at only 5 years old you should repair it.
This is a fine machine!
