My dryer will not heat & I've already changed both non resettable fuses & it is not the heating element.


Did you check the voltage to the dryer?? Most electric dryers run off 240 volts for heat but if one side blows a fuse or half a breaker goes bad, you could still have it run the motors on 120 volts but get no heat.

Top thermastat has no voltage?


Are you getting 240v to the element ? If not it may be the timer , the centrifugal switch on the motor or a fuse . start by testing continuity in t he fuse then test timer .

The drum rotates and blows air, but it doesnt blow hot air. I already changed out the thermal fuse.

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

Air not heating up in whirlpool dryer


A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

My kenmore 70 series dryer isn't drying - changed the heating element, changed the thermal fuse, and the high limit thermostat. Lint is cleaned and the motor is running.


Are you getting any heat at all? Did you change the thermal cut-off which is mounted near the top of the heater box? This is the only other piece in the heating circuit. If you changed it already you could have problem in the timer or in motor. There is a switch in the motor that controls heat also.

Kenmore dryer doesnt heat


You may also need to change your thermal fuse and the thermostat. On some models the thermal fuse operates the heating element only and others the whole dryer

My dryer runs but doesnt heat


most common cause of no heat to either electric or gas dryers is failure of the thermal fuse
followed (for gas, this is posted to gas dryers) by failure of the flame sensor or igniter
all of which are easily accessible
once the cover is opened as described in any of the 'changing belt' threads or in Jokso's excellent howto articles
