The dryer is turning but is not heating. Would that be the heating element? Dryer is about 4 years old.

  • SeannyB May 30, 2008

    No heat at all. I let it run for all 30min(watching the kids) but air is moving freely...just completly cold air.

    Same problem-dryer turns, but no heat on any cycle. What's the easiest way to access the fuse, theromstat(s), and heating coil? Can I remove the cover on the very top of the dryer, or does it need to be pulled out from the wall and accessed from the back? Thanks for you help!

    No heat can be many things.. there are sensors that can overload to keep it from heating to it being something as simple as the vent being plugged and overheating the element making it shut down.. if it has not been running.. turn it on timed dry and set it on cotton high with a dry towel in it.. set it for 30 mins and let it run for about 10.. check the towel and also the dryer vent if you can get to it.. see if there is any heat at all, and let me know.. we can go from there...

WD 9900 does not dry


Most all dryers, including combo washer/dryers, have an electric wire coil for a heating element.
I suspect yours has given up ( they usually break in two, stopping the electrical flow). You should need to have the element replaced.
Going to need to take the whole machine apart to fix this.
Be blessed.

I have a kenmore 417 stacked washer and dryer that works but the dryer is slow to dry and the washer makes a squealing noise. what can i do to fix both?


Hello there Brian and welcome to fixya
Slow drying is a fairly common issue with dryers that are a few years old the most commmon problems is due to the following
Please check each one of these very close ok
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. To determine if the heating element is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician. Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Kenmore Stackable washer/dryer Model #11088752793, won't heat


Hi,
Either the elements have blown, or it could be a device called a thermal overload which has popped. (There may also be a loose wire which connects to the heating elements). Have your drier checked out by a good handyman or technician.
Best wishes,

Dryer will not heating up. Only 5 years old


Two possible reasons:

1. The heating element or the temperature sensor is broken.
2. The exhaust vent is obstructed and needs to be cleaned.

Good luck.

Kenmore Electric Dryer


If this is a Kenmore, have you checked the thermal cut-out or high-limit thermstat? Does the drum turn when you start the dryer?

If the drum turns, but does not heat, you will need to check the thermal cut-out (located on the heating element housing). The TCO should read a SHORT (0 ohms) or very low resistance. If it is OPEN, replace it along with the high-limit thermostat. In most cases the two components are sold as a set and are recommended to replaced as a set by the manufacturer.

Reason: The TCO is designed to protect the heating element and thermostat in the event of an overtemp condition. If the TCO is bad, there's a likely chance that the thermostat could be damaged.

If the TCO reads good, you may have a thermostat that is failing. The high limit thermostat operates normally in the CLOSED (shorted) position and will OPEN at or around 157 degrees F. It is located on the heating element housing adjacent to the TCO. If the thermostat has failed the dryer will tumble, but will not heat. Follow the same recommendation as for replacement of the TCO. Replace both components as a set.

Now...if the dryer drum does not spin, the likely cause is the thermal FUSE. It will be mounted on the blower housing near the blower fan. It is usually white (plastic) in color on Kenmore models. It should read a SHORT. If it fails the dryer will not spin or heat.

Post back with your comments or questions. I hope I'm leading you in the right direction.
