Power indicator lights up but there is no power


Remove exhaust hose. Clean out lint. Remove back of dryer. Clean lint out of air flow system including lint and heat unit(coils). Try dryer. Is heat element glowing red hot? If not, replace heat element. They burn out intermittently and need lots of air flow to have good life. Clogged lint traps shorten life cycles. Definitely a DIY project. See youtube for general process.

My kenmore 600 dryer will not heat up, what could be the problem?


No heat problems are caused by several things.
First lets do the easy thing and turn off the Dryer CB by pushing it HARD to off and then back on. Re-test for heat.
Next try different cycles as in Air Fluff, Delicate, regular etc... Air fluff is no heat but see if it heats on other heat temp selections. If you get heat on a different heat selection then the problem is probably an open thermostat. If you still get no heat the most likely suspect is the heating element. If the heating element is fine then your looking at the motor switch or wiring as the problem. Component of last resort to replace is the timer.
At this time I suspect either a high limit thermostat or an open heating element.
Mond you since you did not include your complete model number this response if for an electric dryer. IF your dryer is gas respond with a model number please so I can point to other things that cwill cause a no heat symptom.

Thanks for choosing FixYa, Kelly

My dryer wont heat up. I have replaced the heating element, and everything else seems to be working fine. I dont't know what to check next.


There are thermal fuses you'll see after removing the
back panel. You will need a meter to see if they
are passing current. They will fail if dryer overheats.
Pretty cheap to replace if that's the case.

My Maytag dryer Model MGE2400AYW is not heating. It runs fine but it is not heating and I was wondering if you knew what it might be. I was told it is probably the heating element but am not sure.


First, try resetting the breakers for the dryer in the house electrical panel--push off, then on. If no help, then the problem is likely internal to the dryer. Suspect the heating element or thermostat that controls the heater. Good luck!

Dryer willnot heat


heating eliment is most likely burned out. Better off getting new dryer. But if that is not an option then call a repair person that can replace the heating element.

Everything seems fine but will not heat up I checked continuity, on every thing and it seems fine and I did the more less more less and all codes came up fine took the heating element out and it seems fine...


First things first...Are you sure that you have 220 volts to the dryer? Just because the motor runs doesn't neccesarily mean you have the proper voltage. Also check the connections where the cord comes in to see if they are tight and intact.

Motor does not turn


if coils is heating are you sure motor isn't running or just the drum not turning ? if drum not turning suspect belt ..if motor not running but element still heating suspect element is contacting outer case ..with coil touching case 110 volts is present even without motor turning if timer is turned to heat position element will not heat to capacity but will get hot enough to eventually blow element fuse

Washer dryer not heating up


both the 'wash' & the 'dryer' have their own heating elements, If the 'wash' completes its full cycle including 'spin', then I suspect this heat element is ok.Re the dryer, most likely the heat element circuit is 'open circuit' somewhere, could be  the element, thermal fuse, thermostat, or a wire burned out

Stops after 20-30 seconds but only when using heat. Can immediately restart.


rbf, in looking Im not finding a 649732, but I do find a 649723. This dryer has a even heat board but also a thermistor. If you had to hold the start button for it to run, I would suspect the even heat board. That's not the case so Im suspecting a open or shorted thermistor. If you remove the lower panel it sits right behind the blower housing next to the thermal fuse. Should be black in color. Part number 3976615. The thermistor should ohm out at about 10k ohms plus or minus 3. When one of these thermistors fails usually you get the symtom your describing. Catriver.
