Piece of ****

I had an old dryer that worked fine, for 12 years I might add, replaced the element once I think, now I spent about 2,000 on front load whirlpool washer and dryer with stands, hoping for ten years to justify the expense, no like all of you I had originally a PF on dryer screen, for a day or I could unplug for about and hour and plug back in and would work for a load or two, now every day or two it will work for a load, tech came out suggested replacing board told him to much for a gamble glad I didnt after reading these comments, now I'm on the internet searching for a solution, mine right now has no power on board and light inside does not work either. Help anyone

Replace Zanussi ZWD12270W faulty dryer heating element

Just for the record, the heating element went on mine too and I'd only used it less than half a dozen times. The engineer said that it went because it hadn't been used enough (it gets moisture inside somewhere). He said if I didn't use it I would have the same problem after it had been replaced. So make sure you dry something every couple of weeks (he said at least once a month).

Need to replace heating element,where to open dryer

Hi Deborah. I d not have this model of dryer, but I did a similar job on my front-loader. First you should make sure that the heating element is the problem; in my case, there was a fuse and a thermal coupling that might also have caused this behavior. If you search around, you should be able to find a troubleshooting guide for your dryer that details how to test. You will need a screwdriver and a multimeter to follow the procedures. The manual should also describe how to do the replacement, but the basic steps should be similar for all dryers like this:
2. make sure it is unplugged
3. remove the top. Usually held on with screws in the back and tabs in the front
4. remove the front. May have to remove the door first. if you have front-mounted controls, you will need to unplug the wiring harness(es).
5. remove the drum. I didn't think it was heavy, but that is a subjective thing.
6. the heating element will be mounted on a panel on the back wll of the dryer, probably on a piece of material covered with a reflective coating.
7. Unplug the element from the cabinet wiring, and remove the backing surface with the element. you can test the element for continuity with the multimeter. In my case, the element was visibly broken.
8.The element will probably be strung on a series of wire holders; unstring it.
9. String the new element on in the same way that the old one was strung.
10. put everything back together, and if the element was the problem, you should b good to go.

Life span of a dryer

the first thing you should do is clean out any lint in the exhaust side of the venting area. it could be overheating from that and shutting the heat off too soon.. on an electric dryer the heater part either works or it doesnt. element should be fine in this case i suspect..

WD 9900 does not dry

Most all dryers, including combo washer/dryers, have an electric wire coil for a heating element.
I suspect yours has given up ( they usually break in two, stopping the electrical flow). You should need to have the element replaced.
Going to need to take the whole machine apart to fix this.
Be blessed.

DEGX1 dryer will not produce any heat. 5 years

I have the same model of dryer and the same problem and no experience in fixing any appliances. I took a few screws off the top and the front, opened the dryer by rotating it forward, and found a red button (a fuse or breaker?) close to what I figured would be the heat sink. Pressed the button, it clicked, and decided to put it all back together. First load worked fine, hopefully that was all it needed. Good luck and hope this is all you have to do too.

. I have a LG WD12126RD front load washer dryer

This is a heater error. The heater element is open and not working. This is usually the problem but it could be other things also. You need a service call from an LG tech.

No heat, only blows cool air. I think the heater element burned out. The vent likely had a partial plug and the drier smelled really hot a couple days ago. It runs, air flow through it right now but it...

The heating element have got old and brittle over time and finally gave up the ghost. But it is not always the element. It could be one of the safety Hi-limits have blown. All parts of the dryer will have continuity if its working properly. Test for continuity by using a meter set on Ohms,or use a poor man's meter. You can make your own poor man's meter by using an ordinary flashlight . Break the circuit in the flashlight and add a couple of wires to it so that you can make the light come on in the flashlight, that's right hot wire that flashlight. When the bulb lights up you have a circuit! You now have a poor man's meter. The next step is to check each little gizmo on the dryer that the wires attach to. All the limits attached to the side of the heat element, the door switch (when door is closed) etc.should have continuity (closed circuit)(the light should come on in the poor man's meter) If you come across an thing near the blower housing with 2 wires attached to it, that is a thermal limit, a safety or a control thermostat (So as not to get a false circuit you need to remove one of the wires to each thing you check) Look for lint buildup or blocked vent going out the house. If everything is good and you have paid the electric bill, then the timer could be bad.

Front load dryer

Remove the front panel to get to it. Once you get the front panel off it is easy to remove the drum and replace the element. First remove the top then the front then you have it.
