The air is cold and dryer is turning

If it's electric, could be timer or heat level selector switch, a relay to heating element, the heating element itself bad or the overheat thermostatic switch has failed. How old is the dryer? A lightly used replacement may be less than the repair technition and parts.

I have a Crosley Dryer and it does not spin anymore but the heat is still on. Does it mean I need a belt for the dryer?

Usually, yes. I am not familiar with this particular brand of dryer but im sure that its not too different from other models that ive worked on before. You can replace the belt yourself if youre somewhat handy. You can pick one up from your local appliance store and the belt comes with directions to aid you in the installation...your owners manual does as well. Safety first...please make sure to disconnect the unit from its power source prior to attempting any repairs. Good luck.

Dryer will spin but not dry , heat element is fine

Try replacing the high limit switches if the element is fine. The limit switches will not allow power to the heat strips if they are blown. They are the little silver buttons on the heat strip. There are usually two wires connected to them one coming from the controls and one from the heat strip itself

Dryer runs will not heat

If this is an ELECTRIC dryer, the following link explains how to troubleshoot a no heat problem:

Begin by verifying your input voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240 VAC across the two hot leads (the left and right slots in the receptacle). If good, remove the back cover over the terminal block of the dryer (where the power cord is installed) and plug the dryer back in. Take a reading across the RED and BLACK wires at the terminal block. If good, your problem is in the heating circuitry. If bad, you have a bad power cord.

The reason I mention the input voltage is because many people assume it is good if the dryer drum is still spinning. The drive motor which turns the drum, however, only uses half the input voltage because it runs off 110-120 VAC. The heating circuits require the full 220 service in order to operate. If you are missing a portion of the source voltage, the dryer will exhibit the same problems you describe.

Read through the link I provided and pay particular attention to the section that discusses proper dryer ventilation. Most dryer heat related problems are actually caused by poor ventilation causing the dryer to overheat to the point of failure. If you haven't cleaned your ventilation ducting anytime recently, now might be a good time. Leaving a dryer in a clogged or poorly ventilated condition will cause repeated failures of any components you might be replacing.

If you have questions along the way, let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

No heat to a gas dryer

Sounds like the problem is the solenoid coils on your gas valve. easy to replace and inexpensive + common. their are 2 coils on the valve that have 2 wires each going to them. Let me know if you have any other questions,

Fridgidare dryer spins but no heat.

If the dryer runs but doesn’t heat, don’t even think it’s the thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse was the problem, the dryer wouldn’t run at all.
First thing to do is verify your source voltage for the dryer; for those of you in Manhattan, this means to use your multi-meter to measure the voltage at the dryer outlet to make sure you have 240v. Y’see, Slick, the dryer motor only needs 120v supplied by one of the lines to run. But the heating elements, on the other hand, need 240v supplied by both lines to get hot.
If the source voltage is ok, then the most likely bad parts are listed below. As always, you should use your meter and the tech sheet supplied with your dryer (and cleverly hidden inside the control panel) to verify:
1. Even Heat Board
2. Heater Relay
3. Thermostat
4. Sensor

No heat on Whirlpool leq8000jq1. Is it just the heating element?

There are several things that could cause this problem, here are a few common things it could be, before doing any checks you should always make sure you disconnect your appliance from it's power source.
  1. bad heating element, you can check the heating element for continuity with an ohm meter.
  2. bad thermal fuse
  3. faulty power cord
  4. bad thermostat
  5. tripped breaker or blown fuse from house power supply, check to see if you have 240 volt supply to your appliance.

Maytag performa runs no heat how do I access the heating element?

Well if it runs then the fuse is ok so what you need to do is pop the top and check the high limit thermostst and heating element located at the rear of the machine. The top on most of these machines comes up easilty if you use a putty knife or five in one. Be sure to disconect the power source. a12fee1.jpg

How old is the dryer? The heating element is probably no good.
It's possible to fix it yourself. Make sure it's unplugged before you start. You might want to check a parts store, or online to see what the heating element would cost. when this goes bad, the dryer will still spin, and the heat stops instantly. It's a little tricky taking the panels off, but there's not too much to a dryer. An electric motor that powers a belt to make it spin, the heating element, metal sides, top and bottom. Good Luck!

Dryer spins but no heat

Did you check the power coard where it connects to the dryer? Start at the source. Make sure that you have at least 110v on each line. The dryer will tumble on 110v but requires 220v to heat. If you have 220v then check the t-stat and thermal cut-out on the blower. Check all wires for loose or burnt terminals. If all that is good it may be a bad motor or timer/control. I'm happy that you have a meter.
Good luck.
