It could be a hi or low thermistor or a run relay or the heater itself. All these parts you are able to check by conducting continuity tests on each piece, make sure the unit is unplugged when you conduct this test using a multimeter. Which ever piece showed having no continuity would be the one that was at fault make sure you also unplug one of the wires off each piece that you are conducting the test to or your test would be inaccurate if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped when our chat has fully concluded it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future I await any further reply
p.s if this is a whirlpool or kenmore dryer i would first check the run relay found behind the rear panel of the machine Thanks again Rick

No heat from KitchenAid KGHS01PMT0 dryer. All other functions work except I can't change the amount of heat


Several things could cause that. Heating element, improper voltage, fuses and thermostats, timer, burnt wires, and motor are all possibilities.

Dryer not drying

Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:

Proper Voltage

If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.

8574d88.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

d5b5af3.jpg Thermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
77d6bd4.jpg Thermostat

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.

    Timer motor


    A defective timer motor could also cause your dryer to not heat up. Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is no longer functioning as it should, replace either the entire motor assembly, or just its motor.

    My Maytag double stack gas dryer does not work, the screen is blank(not lighted)


    Most clothes dryers have a thermal limiter or fuse, which is a heat-sensitive safety mechanism that shuts off heat to the drum or the power supply to the dryer if it overheats. Unfortunately, you can't replace a thermal limiter once it activates. The only choice you have is to replace it; your dryer won't operate properly until you do.
    Although you can't reset a thermal limiter that has been blown, you can reset the dryer's two circuit breakers and restore heat to the drum and power to the dryer. However, after the breakers are reset, you'll still only have partial function of your dryer. For example, it might spin but not heat or it might initially turn on just to shut down after a few minutes. You must replace the defective thermal limiter to reinstate your dryer's full function.

    Kenmore Electric Dryer , 700 series, MOD 64722400 , SER MR4136705 , Type DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM64 . Dryer is not heating, checked fuse it's fine, cleaned every nook and cranny with a swifter duster and...


    Hi.

    Be sure that you have checked the thermal fuse. The part is tested using a multimeter set on Ohms (impedance). Remove the fuse from dryer and read impedance touching the fuse contacts with the two multimeter probes. If impedance is Ohm infinity (open), then the fuse is bad.

    If the fuse is OK because tested good or replaced, then the problem is either one of the three thermostats located in the heating group, or the heating element. All parts are tested similarly to what described for the thermal fuse. If any of the parts read open (infinity), then the part is faulty. After finding the defective part remove all the lint from heating assembly and air duct. The lint causes overheating and blows thermostats, fuse or element.

    Regards.

    The dryer sounds like it is functioning normally except it will not heat. I had this happen once before and the appliance repair man said it was the fuse, is this the termal fuse possibly?


    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.


    if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


    If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


    check out this electric no heat tip...

    Heating element not working on a ele ctric dryer


    With the power disconnected you can check the resistance of the heating element. Remove the back of the dryer. Remove the connectors to the element and if the resistance measured is any greater than 25 Ohms then the element will need replacing. If the element is OK then check the thermal fuse(s) or thermistor on top of the housing which are there to present overheating. That’s really all there is to it if the motor is running and the timer id working OK.

    The dryer will not tumble


    do you hear any humming noise? does the heat come on?....no noise. most likely is a thermal fuse....small white fuse usually with two blue wires. humming means broken belt, bad motor or something stuck in blower wheel.
