My tumble dryer will not heat. It's a beko DRVS62S. I've tried holding the buzzer/cancel button but all the lights are not flashing


First check that both breakers are not tripped a dryer runs on 110 V for most functions and only uses 220 v for the heater if one breaker is tripped it will run but not heat if both breakers are ok,then check wire from dryer heating element up to see if there is a broken or pulled of wire. Check the heater wire to see if has a broken heater wire,If all is ok I would replace thermal coupling.

I have a frigidaire Dryer (4 years) model #AGQ7000ES1. The machine turns on but it won't heat. I ran all the diagnostic tests that the manual outlines and the test came up OK. No malfunctions. All air...


There are two 110 volt supplies to an electic dryer. One supply will supply all operations of the dryer save half of the heater ckt. The heater requires both 110 supplys for heater operation. Check if one of your two 110 dryer breakers in your house is "tripped" to off. If it works when you trip it back on good, if it only works temporarily then trips again, suspect a bad heater element drawing too many amps. Another possiblity is a weak breaker in the house breaker box, but usually if you get a reoccuring breaker trip its the dryer heater element pulling too many amps. Hope this helps.

Sorry again,
Good luck,

I have had my whirlpool dryer about 4yrs + (geq9800pw2) has always worked fine. Last week it started tripping ckt breaker toward the end of drying cycle. As of this morning, it blows ckt breaker...


leave off the oven and a/c breakers and plug dryer and reset the breaker. if not tripping occurs then one at a time trip back the oven first. if no trip then trip off again and trip the a/c. if no trip then trip the oven back. if trip you may have a wire problem. if dryer trip any way then possibly you have a short in dryer. check the heating element wires,power cord at the dryer side(terminal block).

Dryer will not heat up? What should I check first?


Without knowing the make of the dryer, I will take you through a generic checklist.
1. Check the power to the outlet. Most dryers are on a 220 volt circuit. If one leg of the circuit is not powered, it can cause the heater element not to work while the rest of the dryer is powered. If you don't have a meter to check the circuit, try turning the circuit breaker off then back on. I have seen the circuit breaker not trip completely and look set when one leg was off.

2. Depending on whether you have a meter to check continuity, you can check the leads on the heating element to make that the element is not broken. A broken heating element will not heat.

3. Most dryers have a thermal fuse (or two) on the vent cowling that leads to the vent hose. If it (or either) is blown, the dryer will not heat up. Again, you need a continuity meter to check it.

Those are pretty much the basics I can give without having much more information to go on.

Hope this helps

No heat in dryer model # 96591420


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

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

3. Thermal fuse
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.

Heating elements will not heat


If you dryer is running but not heating then you may have one of the following problems.
Make sure you have 220-240 volts to the machine. If one leg of you breaker has kicked you will only be getting 110 volts this will cause the dryer to run and not heat. Simply kick the breaker off and back on to fix.
If you have enough voltage then you may have a bad thermostat, thermostats or heating element. I recommend you take your heating element off and look for broken lines.check continuity if possible. If the heater is good then go to the thermostats. Check continuity. Replace if you find a bad one. Good luck and I hope this helped. mca0824@aol.com
