It runs, but no heat

It runs, but there is no heat, the air is cold I checked the heating element. its ok. I found on of the thermostats (the one that is on heating element)I unhooked it. dryer still did not get hot. I am not sure where the other thermostat is. i found what I thought was the thermostat on the blower and unhooked it but the dryer still did not get hot. not sure it is the thermostat anyway.

    Ours did the same thing. Suddenly it just stopped heating. We've replaced both thermostats and the heating element and it still isn't working which makes us think something else must be wrong but what!!!???

    It's the operating termostat (NC) in the center of the unit rear. It's located just above the thermostat heater/thermal fuse. Can't find the part though on any web site.

I am having the same problem. Whirlpool dryer is working but not heating. I have checked the heating element, it's fine, the thermal fuse, it's good. I replaced one of the thermostats (the one that is next to the thermal fuse, not the element) and the other thermostat is fine. My dryer does still not heat. I do not understand this...

I dont believe at this time its anything mentioned at top most people dont realize that dryers are split cuircuts
is this a 220 setup
and if its a 220
the cuircuit breaker for this is set by 110 each one for the heating element one 110 for the guages and motor
goto circuit breaker and flip the breakers this should return your dryer working ability
other thing is are the guages working properly
dryer doesnt have to run to test guages turn to the highest setting and let them run completly threw cycle if they stop on a particular setting for a long length of period then the guages are bad

Kenmore dryer blows cold air. I replaced heat element still no luck? model 96263800


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when an electric dryer stops heating. The heating circuit is not just composed solely by the heating element, it is composed by the thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, motor centrifugal switch, and the timer. The first thing to look at when an electric dryer stops heating is the thermal cut-off. It cuts power to the heating element when it blows most likely due to the failure of the high-limit thermostat. The thermal cut-off must be replaced, together with the high-limit thermostat, if found open. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

To get proper heat, keep your temp setting at 30+ degreeand also mode in "heat "position. If still no heat, check your heating sensorfor closed circuit by an OHMs metre.It it's with RV, check power to RV.Ifit's with heating element check power to element. If power is there but stillno heat means element defective. Replace new heating element. Thanks.

Maytag DE7500 electric dryer blows cold air only,checked heating element.ok could it be hi temp thermostat on heating element if so how to check it to make sure


You need a voltmeter to check the continuity across the two terminals, it should be open. If there is no continuity the limit is bad..

If you found this helpful please leave a thumbs up........

Runs thru cycle but no heat . Exaust air is cold. All filters are clean


first make sure you have 240volts at the plug,if not check homes fuses or breaker to make sure they're good and/or not tripped,then remove either the top and front cover,or if the heating element is accessable from the rear do that,if the elements ok then check the hi limit thermostat on the element housing,then check the thermal fuse and cycling thermostat/switch on the blower housing,if any of these open you wont get heat

My kenmore dryer is blowing only cold air. What is wroge? We already checked the heating element and timer...???? This dryer is only 4 years old.


The heating circuit is composed not only by the heating element and the timer but also with a high-limit thermostat, a thermal cut-off, and a cycling thermostat. The high-limit thermostat and the thermal cut-off are both mounted on the heater housing to monitor and regulate the heater temperature while the cycling thermostat is mounted on the blower housing to monitor and regulate the temperature of the exhaust air.

All of these components are wired in series and a failure in any of them results in the dryer not heating. The proper troubleshooting is by checking the continuity of each of these components with a volt-ohmmeter and replacing the ones found without continuity (open).

A continuity check can also be done by bypassing each of the three components, never the heating element, and then starting the dryer. The dryer should heat, otherwise the problem is somewhere in the timer, the heating element, or the centrifugal switch within the motor. When the dryer heats up, unplug it then un-bypass one of the bypassed components and start the dryer. If the dryer stops heating then you have found the failed component; replace it. If the dryer does not stop heating, do the same to the remaining components until you find the failed one. Just make sure the dryer is unplugged before touching the components.

Replace both the high-limit thermostat and the thermal cut-off if any of them has failed. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer if you need further or more specific advice.

Check the O/B setting on the thermostat and equipment to insure the reversing valve is energized during the proper heat/ cool cycle. Also check the thermostat wireing to insure electric heat element is set up.

My cadet c202 heater is running the fan is blowing cold air but no heat, is it the thermostat or heating elements or both???or ?????


I work in a motel and replace these heaters quite often, Cadet C202, a 240v 2000 watt wall heater. Most of the time when they blow cold air it's because the heating element is broken. First turn off the circuit breaker, then remove the heater from the wall. If you take out three screws, slide the top cover off, bend the two little tabs and take out the heating element, you can examine it and usually you will find a place where it is broken, it's like a big spring. Replacement elements can be ordered from online stores such as reliableparts.com Be very careful, 240 VAC is very dangerous! <!-- from fixya rte -->

The tumble dryer tumbles but I have no heat and the filter light


Since the heating element is not heating up when powered up you must have a bad heating element.

Dishwasher cycle runs: tablet is not dissovlved, dishes dirty


If the dry cycle has a problem, check these:

Heating element
Drying fan
Thermostat
Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element.

Drying fan Many high-priced dishwashers have a small fan that blows air or heated air into the dishwasher to speed up the drying process. If the fan is defective, you need to replace it.

Thermostat Some dishwashers have a thermostat that monitors the drying temperature. If the thermostat is defective, the heating element may not cycle on or off properly. If that's the problem, you need to replace the thermostat.
