    My LG dryer (5yrs old) model DLE2532W runs great. But it does NOT DRY CLOTHES. There's NO HEAT. I've done all the obvious things to gt it working - no improvement. So, now I need to try to replace the heating element & thermal fuse. I dont have a parts diagram to see where & how to replace these parts. H E L P!

My Frigidaire Dryer is not heating anymore. Repair and testing for model...


The example is referring to Frigidaire electric dryer model FEX831CSO. If you have a different model see here how to locate parts and diagrams: Where do I find parts and diagrams?

First part to test is the thermal fuse located at the back of the appliance. This is tested reading Ohms on fuse contacts. follow procedure explained further below to test the fuse.

If the fuse is not the culprit, it will be neccessary to access heater assembly and thermostats.

You access the heater parts by opening the top panel, part 3 on diagram below.

The heater assembly is part of the housing, and it is part 15 on diagram.

Replacing the heater requires further disassembly, first ensure that the problem is not a defective thermostat or thermal limiter. The thermostats fails far more commonly than the heater.

To test heater and thermostat use a multimeter set at Rx1. disconnect the thermostat contacts and read impedance at room temperature.
If the thermostat is good it will read zero or very low impedance.
An alternative way to test a thermostat is by jumping its contacts.

The element is also tested reading impedance. If the element has no continuity (infinite Ohms), then it must be replaced, otherwise it is good.

Test both the thermostat and the Thermal limiter, they are tested in the same way. Both this parts are accessible after removing the top panel, and can be replaced without further disassembling.

Here the parts:

Thermostat:PS446428 part 33 in diag.

Thermal limiter:PS419402 , part 36 in diag.


Test and repair must be done by a trained person. Call the phone number listed on the user manual if you need to contact a qualified technician.

I have a Kenmore Series 70 Dryer and I changed the thermal fuse got hot for a few minutes the model #110.74722400

The cycling thermostat must also be replaced when replacing the thermal fuse. The cycling thermostat's failure to cycle off the heating element results in overheating of the dryer which consequently blows the thermal fuse open.


Replacing only the thermal fuse should the dryer stops running and fails to start will result in its premature blowing or even the thermal cut-out (cut-off) located on the heater duct. Like the cycling thermostat, the high-limit thermostat must also be replaced once the thermal cut-out blows open. Refer to the parts diagram in the link below and look for item numbers 31(thermal cut-off), 34(hi-limit thermostat), 39(thermal fuse), and 41(cycling thermostat.

Hi, Our dryer runs but doesn't heat. We checked the power source, heating element with ohm meter but it was fine. What else should we check? Thanks.


If the dryer runs there is no problem with power. If the appliance runs but does not heat the problem is one of the thermal devices. The dryer comprises one thermal fuse, several thermostats and the element. Thermal fuse and thermostats must be checked along with the element.

Start from the thermal fuse. The fuse can be tested reading impedance with a multimeter. If the fuse is open it will read Ohms infinity. In that case replace the fuse. Here the part: ASSY-BRACKET (THERMOSTAT) (Thermal Fuse with Bracket).

The fuse is part n.15 in Diagram one below. Click on the picture to enlarge:


If the fuse is OK, or if replacing the fuse did not help test the thermostats. You have the following parts:

THERMOSTAT - Part 11 in diagram

High Limit Thermostat -Part 13 in diagram

THERMISTOR - Part 27 in diagram

If the appliance is running the door switch should not be the problem. If you need test also the DOOR-SWITCH.

The thermostats can be tested reading impedance. If there is no heat, then one of the thermostats is open and will return Ohms infinity. Other way to test a thermostat is by jumping its contacts and running a controlled cycle to prevent overheating.

My lg gas dryer doesnt get hot.


As first thing try replacing the thermal fuse.

The thermal fuse is located in the blower housing, near to the exhaust at the back of the dryer. The thermal fuse cost is only few dollars. Before replacement it can be tested reading Ohms with a multimeter. If the multimeter set on impedance reads infinite Ohms (No continuity, same as on air), then the fuse must be replaced. A good fuse must read low or zero impedance.

If the thermal fuse is OK, the next parts to test are the thermostats. On GE gas dryers there are at least two thermostats. One is a control of themperature, the other is an high limit. High limit is hosted on the blower housing, near to the thermal fuse. There is one or two thermostats near to the blower wheel. Often there is a safety thermostat near to the burner. To get details on the specific model check the schematics tucked inside the appliance or available online.
The thermostats are tested reading Ohms at room temperature. If any of them returns no continuity at room, then the thermostat is faulty and must be replaced.

If the thermostats and fuse are OK, then the next step is checking valve and igniter. The igniter or glowbar is tested energizing it and observing if there is spark. The valve is tested reading Ohms on solenoid with multimeter set at Rx1. If the solenoid has no continuity, then the valve is faulty. There is also a flame sensor that can be tested reading impedance or jumping its contacts.

If all the parts listed above are OK, then wiring and electronic timer control board must be tested reading voltages at contacts.

The problem is likely the thermal fuse or one of the thermostats.

Apart replacing the part, ensure that the hoses are not blocked , and that there is no lint inside the machine. This may have caused the fuse blowing.

Here a general diagram that can help you in identifying parts.

All tests must be done by a trained technician.

To get a technician on site , or to get a quote on repair ring the number listed on the owners manual.You can also get an US technician contact using our directory:Contacts.

To get parts ring GE at the number on manual.

Won't heat up. Replaced the heating element -

Did you check the thermal fuse? It is about one inch long and is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. Use a multimeter to test it for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a blown fuse. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Heating element does not heat imoved to a new house and the dryer just quit heating

Will to take it apart to get to the heating element, thermostats, and fuses. If are not familiar in taking it apart go to this websit type in you model number and it shows diagrams on it. You can try to follow the diagrams it shows and try to take it apart and checking out your heating element, thermostat and fuses. I would start by Ohming this things out first with a multi meter on your ohm setting once you get to it. If they check out ok, then further troubleshooting will be needed.. Remember good fuses will read 0.0 ohms bad fused will read "OL" . You heating element should read i believe about 9-10 ohms i think. hopefully this helps

Roper Gas Dryer

The first thing I would check is the thermal fuse (#6 on the bulkhead parts break down diagram). Replace if it's open.
Also, the manufacturer recommended to replace the cycling thermostat (#8 on the bulkhead parts break down diagram) too if the thermal fuse is open.

- The part number for the thermal fuse AP3132867

- The part number for the cycling thermostat AP3131939

- Here are the break down diagrams for the Roper dryer Model RGX4634KQ2
