I had someone look at my dryer. It tumbles but does not heat. He told my daughter the controller needed to be replaced, cost $210 + tax. What is a controller? Is that the correct name for that part?

The correct name is "Timer"
When you look for parts on the internet you can put in the search windown "timer" without the quotes.

TUMBLE DRIER STOPPED HEATING


Gas dryer?

If so, probably bad gas solenoid valves. They can safely be replaced without fear of releasing gas. Two phillips screws, two pull off wire plugs. That's it. Cost about $30 bucks depending on where you buy them. They are a universal part and will fit 99.9% of machines.

Whirlpool dryer awz 121 only tumbles counter clockwise. This is a dryer that briefly reverses direction, so the only tumbling is when it reverses. The rest of the time, the dryer makes a noise but d


You may want to contact a professional that will have the diagrams for your machine online. there are some here or you can go to another site. like (Just answer.) Be more specific about your problem. It can be fixed . There's no worries.

Are you saying that it does not heat up either ?In addition with not tumbling clockwise ?

Disconnect the dryer first. You can remove the top and front of the dryer to check to see what is happening. If it does not heat . You may need to replace the temperature control relay. If that does not work , the heating elements themselves may need to be replaced.

For the tumbling problem, they also have relay switches that go out.
BUT, if it is tumbling to one side and keeps tumbling then that will probably be enough to dry your clothes. As long as it is not too heavily loaded.

I have electric dryer, it tumbles but no heat. Someone told me heating element. I read where you have to take out drum from front to get to it. Is it worth replacing or buying new dryer/


If you can disassemble the dryer, you should find full troubleshooting instructions including the resistance of the electric element and which terminals to test. If the resistance is out of specifications, maybe you could replace it. Parts are generally available at appliance parts stores.

Electric dryer tumbles but does not dry clothes on any setting. dryer is only 4 yrs old.


Heating element has gone bad. You need to unplug unit. remove back, then find heating element and remove it. Look for what looks like broken springs, if found replace element. 99% of electric dryers not drying are the heating element. Cost around $50

Dryer tumbles but no heat. Replaced Thermal


Howdy: Those are good shotguns. It could be the firing ignitor. Two solenoids control the signal to the element. If thay stick it keeps the element on too long or too shot. Take it down to test at Sears. Good luck - Doug

My tumble dryer doesn't dry the clothes


Check your breaker - a dryer will spin at 120 volts but needs the full 240 volts to dry. If that's not it, check your vent going outside the house and the hose coming from dryer. If its clogged, that's your problem. If not, you'll have a heating element issue which involves two separate fuses (and the element). Its best to hire someone if it gets to that point. Good luck...
