Dryer won't dry clothes in one cycle


Make sure a heating cycle is selected. Air and Fluff cycles do not use heat.

Make sure that both phases of 120 volt power are energized (total of 240 volts between the 2 phases).

Most likely the heating element is damaged, which usually means there is no heat at all. A dryer with 2 heating elements will have some heat, but not have enough, when 1 heating element stops working. A dryer with 1 heating element can partially fail and have partial heat, too.

How does the air dry cycle work?


Are you asking about the fluff or no heat cycle?? It just blows room temp air through your clothes. It would be similar to hanging them outside but with the drum tumbling them. This will of course take much longer to dry than with heat.

Ge front loader dcvh515efoww - dryer shuts off when put on heating cycle


Did you pull the dryer out or forward sounds like you may have pinched the exhaust which restricts air flow exiting the unit this will cause it to heat briefly shut down heat shut down and continue this cycle the fact that it worked before makes me think it something simple it will not tumble in any cycle if door switch not installed correctly.

Kenmore elite dryer runs for about 3 min. then trips the breakers


The circuit breaker may be tripping because of a fault with the dryer or it may be a fault with the circuit breaker being weak.

From the description you give the circuit breakers trip frequently.

I'd suggest you first try selecting the no heat air fluff cycle and run it to see if the breaker trips. If the circuit breaker doesn't trip in air fluff then there is likely a short in the heating element.

With a clamp-on amp meter you can read the amp draw of the dryer when it is heating. With the motor and element both working you would see approximately 25-26 amperes being drawn. The breaker is rated at 30 amps. If the breaker trips and only 26 amps are being drawn then the breaker is the problem.

Try the air fluff cycle first and see if the breaker will trip. Then with additional details I may be able to help you further.

Crosley CDE6500AZW heating, but drum not rolling


OK Here is what I think happened. I have heard of this before. You melted a wheel and that broke the belt. This is a simple dryer to repair and parts are not that much. Well worth fixing. Start by popping the top remove the front then get the drum out and inspect the damage.
