Your issue is;
"I have an Emerson electric dryer model # RED440SQ0. The dryer spins but there is no help. Thanks for any help. "

Based on the information provided above, I am unable to access my database to provide you with exacting information. An invalid model number was returned... However, I have provided some common solutions to help guide you in your search.
This information is for a generic brand dryer only!

My Solution is:

Following this link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides valuable D.I.Y. safety information on the make and model number of your appliance. In order to access your product information, you will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual.

Note: A volt-ohm meter is beneficial in performing electrical tests.

Temperature Switch; make sure a positive heat selection has been made, still no heat, then check these:


If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to


Please show your appreciation by rating my solution.
Thank you,

Dyrer will spin but no heat, i noticed the other day after i took cloths out it was fire red in the back of dryer. model # ler6620pq0


It sounds like a lack of airflow.
Has the lint trap been cleaned?
Depending on the view you had of the "fire red", you could be looking at the heating coils, which will glow some. Unless the overtemp switch is not functional, returning air flow to the dryer may be the only issue.

Dryer wil not spin


Hope this info helps, ps don't forget to give me a rating thanks!!


For an electric dryer that runs but doesn’t heat, follow this repair roadmap:
Flip the circuit breaker off and then back on. Electric dryers run on a two-pole, 240v breaker. A common problem is for one of the legs to break which cuts the 240v that the elements need to heat up but it still supplies the 120v for the motor. The result is that the dryer runs but doesn’t heat.
If the breaker checks out, then it’s time to do some surgery. Unplug the dryer and open it up.
. Use your ohm meter to test the thermostats. All should show continuity.
Measure the resistance of the heating element with your ohm meter. Normal readings are in the neighborhood of 30 ohms.
In rare cases, the centrifugal switch in the motor can fail which breaks the power circuit for the heating elements. If this is the case, then the entire motor must be replaced since the centrifugal switch is built into the motor.

Dyrer won't heat...


I can not find a diagram using your model number.
However, most Speed Quenn dryers have 2 screws on the bottom right and left sides of the front panel.
Unplug the dryer.
Remove the 2 screws.
Lift the panel forward and disconnect the door switch wires.
Reemove the belt and drum to access the heater circuit.

Roper Dryer Won't Turn On


Quick check list starting with the most likely to the mostly likely NOT:
Fuse edfbadd.jpgmounted on the blowers housing this puppy is wired in with the door switch. If the lint in the dryer gets to blocking the exhaust then this puppy gets all hot and bothered and melts, causing the whole machine to come to a screeching halt just as if you have opened the dryer door. Clever ain't it? Clean out the lint and replace this fuse.
