SOURCE: dryer will not heat

Check to make sure you have 240V at the outlet. If you do, check the continuity of the element and thermostats. If still no heat, it could be the temperature setting switch, the timer or the motor.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel DEGX2 Dryer. Need heating element changed?

I had the same problem. Everyone continued to tell me that I needed a new heating element, clean lint trap, etc. However, I took the front off of the dryer and located the heating element. On the front of the heating element, in between two wires, there is a red button. Push the button and you might hear a click that sounds similar to a circuit breaker. It is a reset button for the heating element. Try that and it might help.

SOURCE: How do I remove the pulley from the motor of my

Take a big tough wrench and put on shaft next to blower wheel. Now place a big tough wrench on the slotted place on the blower wheel. A place for a wrench is located on the blower wheel where the motor shaft goes into the wheel. Now holding one, try turning the other. Make sure you don't have one that has reverse threads. There are some models that do have them. They drive me crazy trying to determine which it is. They are normally real tight. About 1/3rd of the time I end up having to bust the blower to get it off. Although try not to if you don't have to because this is a part that seems to never go bad.

SOURCE: Hoover 5010D drier died on me...is it thermostat ?

If it is a thermostat there is nothing wrong with jumpering the supply across to the out feed to make sure that the rest of the heating side is OK before you buy a new stat.

You only need to run the machine for a minute or so to acertain if it all works

Change element in a samung dv665j


Usually, one takes the rear cover off revealing the element area. I doubt if the heating element is burned out. Typically the small thermostat or thermal fuse link blows before the heating element goes. You would have to see the diagram of your model online. Most sites have the exploded parts view of that section online. If you don't have a meter tester you may have to replace all 3. Some models have them all tied into 1 board. This site has video troubleshooting. http://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Dryer/8-160-1067262-/Samsung-Dryer-doesn-t-heat-DV665J Samsung Dryer Doesn Heat

HOOVER AUTO DRY 5050ED KEEPS STOPPING


hi there, I have repaired many of these dryers. It will be a faulty heater element, most likely. They cost about $40. If you get a tradesman to fit it, they will prob charge you about $200 all up. Maybe its better to buy a new dryer for around $300? Good luck.

How to replace heating element on dryer model #96282100


This is a fairly simple procedure. Just follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltage is still present even with the dryer turned off.

2. Turn the dryer around so you can access the rear and remove the exhaust vent hose.

3. Locate and remove the screws around the perimeter of the dryer back panel and remove panel.

The dryer heating circuitry will be located on the right hand side (as viewed form the rear). The heating circuits consist of the following components:

Heating Element - (part number 660982)
*Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) - (part number 279769 includes the Hi-Limit Thermostat).

*If either the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat is determined to be defective it is recommended that you replace BOTH parts at the same time. That's why they are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of any parts you replace.

The heating element is located inside the heater box. The TCO is located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals. The Hi-Limit thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element terminals.

Searspartdirect.com has an excellent exploded view diagram of all these components. Just type in your model number and locate the following under the "bulkhead" section:

TCO/Hi-Limit Thermostat - Item 1
Heating Element - Item 14
Hi-Limit Thermostat (by itself) - Item 34

The reason I mention all these components is because if you have not confirmed the heating element to be defective, you may actually have a blown TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat. Its easy to assume a bad heating element if the dryer fails to heat, but it may or may not be the cause. Just some additional things to consider, that's all. These components cost less than a heating element too. If you have determined the heating element is bad, then continue with the following:

4. Disconnect the leads to the heating element and locate the screws that hold the heater box in place.

5. Locate the screws on the outside of the heater box that hold the element in place. You may also have to remove the TCO and Hi-Limit Thermostat.

6. Once the screws are removed, the heating element will slide out of the heater box. The element fits tight and it may require a little effort.

7. Once the defective element is removed, install the new one by sliding it inside the heater box. Make sure you align the screws holes.

8. Reinstall the remaining components and reinstall the heater box.

The rest is self-explanatory.

NOTE: A good heating element will read approximately 9 to 13 ohms. Make sure you disconnect any leads before taking any measurements to ensure accuracy of your readings.

The following link explains a good portion of what I've already explained to you, but it may help as well:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Pay particular attention the section that discusses proper air flow. The majority of all dryer heat related problems are attributed to poorly installed, kinked, clogged or crushed exhaust vent ducting. If you haven't thoroughly inspected the dryer and ducting recently, now may be a good time to do so. Otherwise, any components you replace will fail prematurely. Not to mention, a clogged dryer is also a fire hazard.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Hoover 5010D dryer


There should be two rectangular holes about 2mm wide and 10-12mm long. There is a wall mount bracket [D470] which you install against the wall and then the hardest part is getting the dryer on the bracket.
Obviously when installing the bracket make sure that the wall and the screws can hold at least 30kgs.

TDC 30 tumble dryer


To test the heating element you need to access it by taking apart the back panel, and test it for continuity using a multimeter.

There are also a couple of fuses/circuit breakers that you should test.

Entering the model number here you get the exploded view, and replacement parts.
