Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Fridgidaire dryer model aeq7000eso isn't heating


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If thats fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Will not heat


Check your house fuse/circuit breaker panel. The dryer runs off 2 circuits -one for heat and one for the motor.

How to take off heating element. The fuses seems


do you have a meter?pull one of the wires off the heater and read it out,you could have a bad thermal fuse,a,bad high limit t stat or a couple of other problems,check to make sure you have 240 volts coming in at the back of dryer at the block where the cord connects to dryer,there are 2 house fuses that can go to dryer and one could be bad,next time send model number,if the filter is on top then go to the back of dryer,if the filter is inside,take off the bottom panel and check out the thermal fuse there,it's located on the blower wheel housing it's either 3392519 or 3390719 depending on model number,if you need more help let me know,good luck

Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!
