Please provide a brand name so I can help you.. and yes..many dryers do have a third and in some cases non-resetable thermal fuse.. I'll keep an eye out for your reply.. then maybe we can get your problem resolved...

My kenmore HE2 is not drying clothes. It turn s on and spins clothes but does not have heat. It is an all electic front loading dryer


If the dryer is not heating at all the three things that you want to check are going to be the heating element, the high limit thermostat and the thermostat. The high limit and the normal thermostat are going to be located on the heating element itself. All of these can checked with a volt meter set to check continuity. To access these depends on if the dryer has a two piece front or a solid front.If solid, Then you will just remove the back of the dryer and the heating element and thermostats will be located on the right hand side as your facing it, If a two piece, you'll need to remove the kick plate and the parts will be located on the right side once again. Just remember to unplug the machine , 220v hurts, trust me.

Dryer not heating air. Have replaced the two thermostats at the back and heat is now partially better but can't loctae the third one. I believe it is on the front of the machine but not sure where.


The thermostats are usually grouped together. The are typically oval in shape and about an inch and a half in size. They may be on the blower housing, under the lint trap or inside the vent line. There should be two wires connected to each thermostat. I am assuming that you found the ones on the blower housing, so look in the front under the lint trap, hope this helps Tim

I have an Amana Distinctions Clothes dryer that has stopped heating all together. How can I tell if its the actual element that has gone bad, or the thermostat telling the element to turn on? Any help is...


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
(Thermal fuse.If it overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.

Have you made sure the vent is not plugged, and that the vent fan is working properly? This would cause over heating. There is also a thermal fuse that caused it to quit again.

How do I know which thermal unit is the one that shuts the dryer off when the clothes are dry? one's called a cycling thermostat, another is called a fixed thermostat and the third is called thermal...


Usually the Fixed Thermostat (also known as the High Limit Thermostat) and Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) are used in conjunction to regulate and protect the heating circuits.

The Cycling Thermostat (also know as the Internal Bias) controls the amount of heat required/desired to dry your clothes.

You need to remove the rear panel of the dryer to access the heating circuits on this model dryer. With the back panel removed, the heating circuits will be on the right hand side and the blower fan assembly is located on the left. The Hi-Limit Thermostat and TCO are located on the outside of the heater box with the Hi-Limit Thermostat mounted next to the heating element terminals and the TCO located at the opposite end of the heater box. The Cycling Thermostat is located on the blower fan housing next the Thermal Fuse. It will be the metallic round component, while the Termal Fuse will be a white plastic component.

For better clarification, you can view an exploded view diagram of your appliance at pcappliancerepair.com. If you type in your model number, all the parts I've mentioned are listed under Section 3 (Bulkhead Parts). The components are listed as follows:

Item 6 - TCO/Hi-Limit Thermostat Kit (both parts should be replaced at the same time).
Item 15 - Hi-Limit Thermostat (sold separately)
Item 23 - Thermal Fuse
Item 24 - Cycling (Internal Bias) Thermostat

If you are experiencing heating problems or longer dry times, please review the following link:

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

Pay particular attention to the section that discusses dryer ventilation. The majority of dryer heat related problems and failures are attributed to poorly installed, clogged, or kinked dryer ventilation. If you haven't had the ducting checked in a while, now may be a good time to do so.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dryer is not heating up.


That only leaves 3 things. The first to check is if 240 volts is coming in. The 2nd would be the thermo cut off. It's located on the heater housing or the back wall. It looks like a small thermostat. It should have continuity. The third is the heater relay, should be in the console.

The heating element and thermostat are located behind the front panel of the dryer. you will need to remove the door, then the retaining screws. the heater / element is located on the left side as you are facing the front of the dryer and has to sheet meta screws (upper back top / and front bottom) which will need to be removed. the unit has several colored wires for the thermostat and switch. remove these (remember which goes where) and the enitre unit will come out easily.
