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.

Hotpoint ctd00G will not heat up


Hi,
This is most likely the thermostat switch or possibly the heating element itself.
One or the other is likely needing replacement.
If you are competent at electrical repairs, and have a test meter; Unplug and move to allow access.
Undo rear top screws and remove lid.
Heating element is usualy on top. Disconnect leads and check continuity of switches and element.
Replace switches with similar if either are open circuit. Available as spares from online parts centres.
Heating element should read in the low Ohms - around 20 - 35 Ohms if Ok, otherwise replace.

ONLY ATTEMPT REPAIRS IF COMPETENT (I have to say that)

Just hooked up outlet. Dryer tumbles, wont heat. Have I wired the outlet wrong?


Hi, Did you put red and black wire to the outer posts? White wire ti center and green to ground screw on cabinet? Dry will run on 120V but needs 240V for heat. Make sure there is 240V to the outlet as well.
Hope this helps. If so, please feel free to rate my answer so that I know how I am doing.

Tumble dryer not heating/drying


To check the element and stats, you need to remove the rear panel of the dryer, there you will see the stats and the element, you need to check for contin uity with a meter set on the ohms range, do it with the stats disconnected, or you will get a false reading.. if one of the stats has gone, then you must replace both of them.
Check thst all filters are clean ,air intake and outlet clear, and wash the lower fluff filter out under a running water supply.
If still no joy ,then could be a control unit prob..
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.
