The first thing to try is to reset the 220 volt breakers for the dryer in the house electrical panel--turn the breakers off, then back on. Retry for heat. If nothing, but the drum turns, suspect the heating element being burned out or a thermal switch is defective thus not allowing current to flow through the element. Usually, this means removal of the drum from the machine to access the heater and thermal switches. Unplug the machine from the outlet when working inside of it. Hope this helps!

Unless you are familiar with disassembly of this unit, I would recommend calling a qualified technician.

Electrolux dryer won't heat

a gas dryer has a ignighter that may have burned out. a $40 part

May 12, 2014 | Electrolux Dryers

1 Answer



t normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent Frequentlythere's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outsideof the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be cleanand clear of lint or any other substance.

Heating element Yourdryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, yourdryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three orfour times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partiallyburned out, replace it.

Internal ductwork Yourdryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can'tdry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clearthe clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick wayto check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use aflashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged andyou can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliancerepair technician.

Cycling thermostat Althoughthis isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls thetemperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly.If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small,round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate ismounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Dryer does not dry clothes as fast as normal.Will not dry a load of towels.

It sounds like your dryer vent is clogged. If the dryer is heating up but when you open the door it remains humid inside you need to check the duct behind the dryer.
Step 1: Check for screws in the duct. These are commonly used but are against code everywhere. They catch lint as it is exiting. Remove the screws and refasten with duct tape.
Step 2: If you have any flex hose used this is the second most likely cause. Remove it and look inside with a flashlight.
Step 3: Check the outside vent hood. During the winter dryer exhaust can be a great place for cold animals to hole up. Check for nests or anything else that might be clogging the airflow.
If you find that the vent is clogged do not use the dryer until all the debris has been removed. It is a major fire hazard.

The heat goes on temporarily and then shuts off

The most common problem is a clogged vent.

To do this, unplug your dryer and move the dryer out enough so you can get to the dryer duct easily. Most dryer ducting is flexible like a big slinky with a vinyl(older style no longer used) or metal type covering. There are some that are rigid as well.

Remove the duct from the dryer and where it attaches to the wall. Use a shop vac or house vac with attachments and insert through the wall and vacuum as much as you can. I use a shop vac since it has the blowing capability and I can check if air is coming out of the dryer vent located outside after I vacuumed it out. It is good to get confirmation that air is coming out of the vent. Check the dryer where the duct was attached and vacuum anything that is in there. Put everything back in reverse order and give it a whirl.

There are some homes,condos,and apts the have the hidden ducting go up the wall and through the roof. If this is the case, you will need to go on top of the roof and find the vent pipe. This pipe will have some sort of cap on it to let the hot air out but keep other elements out. Since you mentioned the heat goes on for a bit, have someone go on the roof (use caution) and have someone else turn on the dryer. The person on the roof can check the vent pipes with his hand for heat.

I checked the connection of the dryer and nothing is clogged....the clothes take 3 hours to dry a small load...the dryer feels addition it appears there isn't that much lint on the lint screen...

check your dryer duct hose and might be clogged, some cases the duct fills with water and causes dry time to take longer.....on other cases the vent might be clogged and the heat sensor detects that it is hot enough and shuts down the heater element.................
make sure all vents are unclogged.............

dryer duct hose is in the back of the dryer and is connected usually with a duct clamp or tie strap.........disconnect and if i were you replace with a new one.... do not rinse out and put will cause a build up of lint around the inside of duct hose.....the water acts like a glue trying to collect all the lint it could...and eventually it will clog the hose..............just replace with a new one......check the vent were the hot air discharges out of usually outside or rooftop........most vents are covered with a screen or a plastic/sheetmetal flap.....make sure the flap can move.also make sure that it is uclogged and has good airflow...........................

good luck if anything just message
a feed back would be good if this helps...

The dryer still runs well, there is no heat and you have to run the dryer hours before your clothes are dry

This could be one of several problems. The most common problem that causes no heat is a clogged duct or vent. If air is not flowing out of your unit due to a clogged vent or duct, it will immediately overheat and shut down the gas burner, in gas models or the calrod heating system in the electric models. Try removing duct, checking for clogs in the duct and at the connector at the unit itself. Then check the vent inside your home and on the outside wall for lint clogs.

My kenmore Elite Dryer model he3 starts but there is no heat, what is up with that and what can I do to fix it since my warranty is over.

Most dryers stop heating due to a clogged vent or duct. Check your duct hose inside the house for lint/water clogs. You will have to remove it to do this. Then check the outside vent for lint clogs and make sure that its opening properly (louvered vents). If thats not the case, call up Sears and use your warranty.

No Heat during washing or Drying

they are totally separate systems

for drying
one of the stats on top of the dryer manifold is usually a resettable type ie has a little button in the middle of the top. press this button and chances are dryer will work. an alternative method of guarding against overheat used by hotpoint, is a thermal fuse located on top of the dryer manifold. this may be open circuit. it is unusual for dryer heaters to go open circuiit but it is possible so that needs checking as well.
if a resettable stat has popped, the cause is often a lint build up in the dryer duct so if you get dry heater working and fault reoccurs, you must check for lint blockage in the dryer duct

for wash.

take rear bottom panel off and heater is slightly to the rhs. you will need to check for continuity in the heater. if you are unsure if the wash heater is working or not, put machine on the hottest wash and you can check if heating

good luck

Kenmore Dryer Model 110.73952102

Yes, It is usually on the heating element tube. Don't just replace the fuse. You must find out what caused it to blow. You probablly have restricted air flow . Usually this is a clogged duct pipe or outside vent. This can also be caused by trying to operate the dryer with the door open. Before replacing the fuse, take the duct off the back of the dryer. Clean out what lint you can , turn on the dryer and see if you get good air flow. Next check the vent pipe for clogging and check the outside damper. DO NOT USE FLEXIBLE PLACTIC DUCT PIPE. It is a fire hazard and almost always clogs up fast. Another possible solution is that if it's an electric dryer, If the element burns out it can short out against the frame and cause it to overheat.
