My dryer runs but does not heat up or dry clothes. What could be the problem?


I have a Kenmore dryer and it runs but won't heat up and dry the clothes. I don't hear the ignition even turn over. Please help. I can't afford to buy a new dryer at this time.

Dryer works and tumbles but does not heat


First, you must remove the front panel. Open the door and remove 2 screws on each side of the opening; 2 in the door hinges and 2 directly opposite from them. Then close and latch the door and pull on the top corners of the panel and it pivots down, then lift off the bottom brackets. Then start the dryer (making sure it's not set for air fluff or no heat) and watch the ignitor to the left side of the burner tube. Report back if it glows or not. Also you might include the first two numbers of the serial number so I can make sure we're talking about the same series machine.

Defy Tumble dryer not heating


Is this an electric dryer? If so, the most common problem would be a burned-out heating element. There could also be a defective temperature sensor inside. This will need to be evaluated by a qualified appliance repair technician to find the exact cause.
