Why won't my kenmore dryer 970-c85092-00 heat?


check the heating element to see if the coils are still intact (not burnt or brake). if it is fine,then check the T-STAT and the T-CUTOFF switch. one of those is your problem. if it is the T-STAT or T-CUTOFF, replace them both, they are inexpensive and easy to replace. here is a link to a video that explains this fix thoroughly. i think you will find it helpful.

Why won't my whirlpool electric dryter #ler4634dqo generate heat?


if you have a old house that has fuses sometimes only half of the fuse will blow making it look like the dryer is working but it wont turn on the heat element take the shielding off the heating element and start the dryer and see if they wires glow red hot when running and also after running the machine does the inside feel warm or cold if it is warm check the duct work on the dryer all the way out to the exit and see if lint is clogging it up

Electric dryer getting way too hot

3-5 ACCESS TO THE BLOWER WHEEL OR THERMOSTATS

To get to the blower wheel, remove the back of the dryer.

The blower wheel is under the bottom of the lint screen duct to your left, as you look at the back of the dryer.

The operating thermostats are at the blower wheel outlet.

In electric models, the hi-temperature cutout thermostat is mounted to the heat riser.

3-6 TEMPERATURE CONTROLS AND HI-TEMP SAFETIES

These clothes dryer machines use operating thermostats to control the temperature inside the drum, and hi-limit thermostats to prevent overheating of the dryer drum.. Many machines also have extra temperature controls, such as bias thermostats and heaters, hi-temperature cutoffs, and thermal fuses.

Bias thermostats are just like regular operating thermostats, except that they are mounted inside a bias heater. When the bias heater is energized, it generates a small amount of heat, which causes the operating thermostat to open sooner, keeping the dryer drum cooler inside. Thus a bias heater allows a single operating thermostat to act like both a hi-temp and a lo-temp operating thermostat.

A thermal fuse is found on the blower outlet, right next to the operating thermostat(s.) This fuse will blow when too high a temperature is sensed at the outlet; usually when one of the operating thermostats has failed. If it blows, the motor may not start, or you may get no heat (no voltage to the burner.)

A thermal cut-off is mounted on the clothes dryer heater box. It is a back-up for the hi-limit thermostat. Whenever you replace it, you should replace the hi-limit thermostat, too. A high-temperature condition causes it to open, an overheated grounded heat element may also cause it to open.

I have an inglis dryer and it's not heating so it appears from online searching to be a fuse problem, We don't have the manual Can I just assume the fuses are in the back and we can easily replace?


If the fuse goes on this dryer it won't run at all. It is located behind the back panel along with the heating element and the cutoff thermostat(located at the top of the heater housing). I would suspect either the element or cutoff, however its not possible for it to be the thermal fuse.

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.

Dryer won't heat?


Make sure your electrical connections are correct.
Check the voltage to the dryer element and make sure you are getting 220 volts.
Otherwise I am at a loss also...good luck

No heat


If this is a GAS dryer make sure that the igniter or pilot light has not gone out. If this is an electric dryer, check the vent to make sure it has not clogged up and prevents the air from circulating in the dryer.

Otherwise if it is an electric dryer, make sure the heating element has not blown a fuse or burnt out.
