The following link explains a dryer "no heat" problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

In many cases a no heat problem is caused by poor ventilation which results in the dryer overheating to the point of failure. The common fail item is the thermal cut-out (TCO). Once it trips, it blows like a fuse and must be replaced. If you determine the TCO to be bad, it is recommended that you replace the TCO and Hi-limit thermostat at the same time (usually sold as a set).

Now if you have not cleaned your ventilation in a while (or ever at all) it is strongly recommended that you do. Replacing any failed components in a dryer with poor ventilation will eventually lead to the same problem. If you have any questions, or require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool dryer bad heating element AGAIN


Hi Warren Fink
Try this solution to your problem

A vent clogged with lint can cause the dryer to overheat.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on air fluff/no heat, and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

Dryer taking to long to dry


Overloading
1. One of the simplest problems to remedy could simply be that you are putting too many items inside the machine during the drying cycle. Avoid overloading your dryer, as this might cause your dryer to work extra hard to dry your clothing, extending the length of the dry cycle.
Wrong Heat Setting
2. A common issue with clothes dryers could be the wrong heat setting. Most home dryers feature several settings, from low heat settings to high heat and permanent press. Be sure the setting you choose is right for your needs. Another setting to check is the load size of your dryer. If you are drying a large amount of clothes, be sure the setting for large loads on high heat is selected. Choosing the wrong heat setting or load size can cause your clothes and linens to take longer to dry.
Lint Trap
3. One of the simplest fixes for drying issues might just be that your lint trap is clogged. Each time you use your dryer, lint will form in the trap. If the lint trap and vents are full, this could block air going into your dryer and slow down if not completely stop the drying process. After you use your dryer, remove this lint trap and empty it fully. Even if the lint trap is full, your other dryer vents might be clogged as well.
Clogged Vents
4. If your clothes are in the dryer for a long amount of time, but still not drying, the reason for this could be a clogged vent. A sign that your vent is clogged is if your clothes are warm or hot to the touch after sitting in the dryer, but still damp. To unclog your dryer vent, you may need professional assistance. This is especially necessary if your dryer vent leading out of the house is particularly long.
Heat Source
5. If the dryer is not getting enough heat to dry your clothes,something could be wrong with the heating system. After the drying cycle, touch your clothes to see if they are warm. If not, this means that the heating mechanism is malfunctioning. It will need to be repaired or replaced by a professional.

AFTER DISCONECTING THE GAS FOR TILE WORK IT NEVER WOULD REHEAT


So long as its heating a little, try removing the venting, and see if there an improvement. a clogged vent will greatly reduce if not stop all heat . dont forget to check where venting exits the home outside also becomes clogged.

Now restart it - it should work.

Dryer turns on, drum turns, all appears to work fine, but we get no heat. Pulled front panel and noted the heating element/ignitor does not ignite. Amy experience with this? Bad ignitor? bad gas valve?...


You may have a bad spark ignitor.. Check the vent tubing for any blockage of clogged lint build upfirst.The moister sensor detects that and will keepthe heat off until the the lint clogs are cleared

No heat in dryer. This is a stacked dryer/washer combo. The dryer is electric. The drum turns and timer works but there is no heat in the dryer or exiting the vent. The washing maching beneath the dryer...


The element to heat the dryer has gone out. You removed the back of the dryer to remove lint you will need to remove the back of the dryer again to access the heating element. It is in the lower left or right hand corner (depending on model) and looks like the inside of a toaster oven small thin wires. Take the assembly out (make sure the unit is unplugged always) get the model and serial # and purchase replacement from an appliance parts house.

Good Luck hope this helped you some

Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

My dryers works when cold but stops working after it heats up.


does everything shut off or just heat if its just heat but motor works and drum is turning than-quickest sulotion would be cleaning the vents from the dryer and out through the wall or window whereever your vent goes. the reason it turns off is because it has a limit thermostat that turns off at about 150 degrees so when the vents are clogged the hot air cant escape anywhere so it stays in dryer and overheats quickly take off the vent in the back than turn on your dryer if it doesnt turn off clean your vents

if everything stops working than you most likely have a bad motor
good luck  feel free to reply with any questions

My kenmore Elite Dryer model he3 starts but there is no heat, what is up with that and what can I do to fix it since my warranty is over.


Most dryers stop heating due to a clogged vent or duct. Check your duct hose inside the house for lint/water clogs. You will have to remove it to do this. Then check the outside vent for lint clogs and make sure that its opening properly (louvered vents). If thats not the case, call up Sears and use your warranty.

Dryer repaire


Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.

1. If the dryer is gas and old, the pilot could be out or if it is newer it could have a defective or worn out a igniter!

2. The lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.Try this first
3. The outside screen covering the exhaust vent is even half blocked with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out! Try checking this second! if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door, and or remove the screen permanently! I DID AND NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE!


If none of these tasks remedy the heat problem then here is a good company that's found nation wide.
