The circuit breaker that they are talking about is the breaker box in your house. This is where your breakers are for the whole house(the fuse box) The breaker for the dryere should be listed on a list most likely on the inside of the door to the panel.You can check the list to see what number the dryer is on and then find it in the breakers. It is a double switch breaker because the dryer runs on 220 volts not 110 volt. The reason for this is the heating element that is in the dryer requires more power. Resetg both of the switches assigned to the dryer as they will be side by side ,Each one of those is a 110 volt breaker.after reseting them close the panel and go back and check the dryer. If it works be sure to click on the yes box on the site here so we know we helped you out. Thanks for your time and good luck...bye for now

The dryer still runs and the drum is turning. No heat. Yesterday I did notice the outside of the dryer got very hot for a while.


The thermal cut-off has blown open due to the high-limit thermostat failure to cycle off in order to regulate the heating element temperature as the noticed extreme dryer temperature indicates. These two components are wired in series with the heating element as a safety measure to cut power to the element should the dryer temperature go extremely high like your case.

Disconnect power then make sure the lint filter is clear, the vent system is not restricted, and the inside of the cabinet is clean. A vacuum cleaner may be used to extract lint built up inside the dryer cabinet particularly the bottom. Replacing both the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat is a must but only after the all areas mentioned are cleaned.

Tip

Dryer Running, Will not heat


The Most common problem is a bad thermal fuse.

1 the thermal fuses are located in the cabinet of the dryer under the drum
they can also be located on the front of the blower wheel housing. on the back wall of the dryer or along the heating element can.
2. some kenmore, whirlpool machines have these fuses located in the rear of the machine.especially when the lint filter is located in the top of the dryer.
3. the heating element can also be bad.
4. if you have an ohm meter you can check the continuity of the thermal fuses,as well as the heating element.if there is no continuity on any of the above mentioned parts. Replace the faulty parts.

MY DRYER WON'T HEAT.


This is usually caused by a blown thermal cut-off which blows and cuts power to the heating element due to the failure of the high limit-thermostat to cycle off and regulate the heating element temperature. Check the dryer for clogged lint screen and/or restricted vent system then replace both thermostats when either of them has failed. Both are located on the blower housing.

Click on the links below for the detailed troubleshooting of this dryer problem. Just follow the instructions that are applicable to your dryer since you did not specify the dryer's exact model number.

Why is my maytag dryer running for a long time but not getting my clothes dry, and the vent pipe its clean?


I note the vent is clean.... Now start checking for heat from that vent with the dryer on. You did not mention the model number so we at FixYa do not know if this is a gas or electric dryer. If it is electric cycle the circuit breaker to off (PUSH hard to OFF) then back on. There is a chance that only 1 breaker is connected. It would run and not heat.

Also the airflow out the back of the dryer should gently push a relaxed hand / wrist away from the vent outlet. If it does not do this you have an airflow problem. Look inside the dryer vent outlet for any signs of lint build up. You can have a clean vent but a blocked dryer vent inside the dryer. Go outside the house and check the thru the wall vent hood and flapper for lint buildup. This is a VERY common airflow restriction point. check BOTH sides of the metal flapper for lint. Lastly if after all of this you still have airflow problems the blower wheel hub can be broken or lint on the blower wheel.

Pull the lint filter and wash the filter with vinegar and water then soap and water. Fabric sheet particulate can cause restricted airflow. Also take a flashlight and look hard around the lint filter area for lint build up. Use a folded metal coat hanger to assist in lint removal along with a vacuum and crevice tool.

If you do not have heat... at all... after all of this; please respond with a model number so we can sort out where to go next in troubleshooting.

Thanks for choosing FiXya.

Dryer runs about 20 minutes on its cycle and cuts out. It will not turn back on without a 20 or so minute rest. I have checked the lint filter as well as the exhaust and they are both clear. Anyone have...


Check the exhaust path, where the lint trap goes. If there is lint in the path, it will retain heat that will shut the unit off. You can't just look and see, you will have to dismantle the path from dryer to final exhaust port to make sure it is all clear.

WHILRPOOL DRYER IS RUNNING BUT NO HEAT, CHECK FUSES AND CIRCUIT BREAKERS,


If the dryer runs, but does not heat, the following link explains how to troubleshoot an electric dryer with a no heat problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

First, begin by unplugging the dryer and verifying the voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240VAC across the two Hot terminals (left and right slots). If the voltage is incorrect, check to make sure you don't have a breaker tripped. Some homes use 2 separate 120VAC breakers to provide power to the receptacle vice using one 240VAC breaker.

If the voltage IS correct, leave the dryer unplugged and remove the cover plate on the terminal block in the back of the dryer (this is where the power cord is installed). Plug the dryer back in and take a voltage reading across the two hot (RED and BLACK) wires at the terminal block. You should read 220-240VAC. If the voltage is good, you have an internal heating problem. If the voltage is bad at the terminal block, but good at the receptacle, you have a bad power cord.

NOTE: If the wires at the terminal block are not color coded, the outer two wires (left and right) are the hot leads. The center conductor is neutral or ground.

The reason a dryer will still run if the input voltage is incorrect, is because the drive motor only uses a portion of the 220 service. The motor runs off 110-120VAC, while the heating circuits require 220-240VAC. So, if you are missing 1/2 your input voltage due to a tripped breaker or bad power cord, your dryer may exhibit these symptoms.

If you determine the problem to be internal, the heating circuits will either be located in the rear of the dryer on the right hand, or under the dryer drum on the right hand side. Usually, an easy way to determine is by the location of the lint screen filter. If the filter is on top of the dryer, the heating circuits are in the back of the dryer. If the lint screen is in the door, the heating circuits are located under the dryer drum.

All dryers are not constructed the same. However, the Heating Element is located inside a heater box. The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) will be located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals. The Hi-Limit Thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element terminals.

If either the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat are determined to be bad, replace BOTH components at the same time. That is why these components are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of any parts you replace.

Replacement parts can be found at appliancepartspros.com, searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. The average cost of these components varies, so shop around for the best price.

All your heating circuits are accessible by either removing the lower toe panel under the door, or by removing the rear of the dryer. The location of your lint filter can determine where your heating circuits are located. If the lint filter is on top of the dryer, the heating circuits are behind the back panel of the dryer on the right hand side. If the lint filter is in the door, the heating circuits are located under the dryer drum on the right hand side. You can refer to the exploded view diagrams at the websites I mentioned for reference. The heating circuitry is located under the "Bulkhead Parts" section.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please post back with your complete model number so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope you find this helpful.

Dryer runs but doesn't heat up when sttings call for heat.


You may need to do some troubleshooting. This can be done with the machine unplugged - you may have to activate the start switch, belt switch (if it has one) and the motor centrifugal switch manually.
Tip for troubleshooting 220v systems - clip one lead of a ohm meter to either L1 or L2 on the terminal block. It doesn't matter which one. According to the tech sheet (under console) follow the path for current from your clipped terminal, through the heating element, to the opposite terminal. All the readings should be less than 100 ohms, until you reach the failed part. Confirm failure by disconnecting a lead from the suspected part, and test only that part.

Live troubleshooting is sometimes slightly easier, but much more dangerous than the procedure described above. - It is definitely not recommended for beginners, or for professionals, if it can be avoided.
