My dryer doesn't shut off at end of heating (timing) cycle. Only stops running and heating when I open the door. Do you have a cure for this?
Answer Rick, If the unit is not shutting off at the end of the cycle then you will first want to check for broke or exposed wires. If the wiring checks ok then the timer would be the issue.
My dryer will not heat on high. It was not warming up at all and my friend changed one of the thermostats. Now it will only heat on medium setting. My friend is no longer available.
You will want to check to make sure that the dryer venting is not clogged. You will want to check from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of your home to make sure that there is not a clogged or restricted vent. You can also take the vent off the back of the dryer and put a stocking over it and check to see if it dries and this will also be a good test to tell you whether it is a clogged vent. If the clothing dries on high then the vent from the inside wall of the home to the outside of the home is clogged.
Dryer runs for a while, then shuts off. After 45 min or so will work again for a while and repeats the process.
You will want to check the venting of your dryer to ensure that the venting is not clogged or restricted. You will also want to make sure that the unit is cycling properly and not overheating which could be caused by a cycling thermostat.
dryer not heating ! already replaced heating element what is next?
Answer Mike, check and make sure there is 220-240 VAC at the terminal block on the back of the dryer, or reset the breakers at the breaker box several times. The thermal cut off kit would be the next logical move, but you should test them both for a "closed" circuit with a meter.
Do the thermal cut off in these model take a jumper wire to heat element? And do these part # work on these model #ap3094224
Your unit does take the thermal cutoff kit and will use the jumper from the heating element to the thermostat.
My dryer is spinning but not heating up. I put a new heating coil and a thermostat but still won't heat. While doing this I noticed that one of the orange wires that is attached to the thermal cut -off unit is burnt and the wire has broken off. Could this be why it is not heating.
If the wire going to the thermal cutoff if burnt and broken then yes this would cause the unit to not heat. You will need to repair the wire connector and test the thermal cut off to make sure that it is still good. To test this you would do a continuity test. If there is continuity then the thermal fuse is good. If no continuity then you would need to replace the thermal fuse 279769. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
