A:

The not heating problem is most likely causing the not turning off problem. If you fix the not heating problem the unit will most likely advance to turn off at the end of the cycle. If the dryer is not heating the first thing to check are the two circuit breakers supplying voltage to the dryer. If one is tripped the dryer might run but not heat. Other potential causes of this problem are the timer, thermostat, thermal cut-off, hi-limit thermostat, element or even the motor switch. The thermostats and element should be checked first for resistance/continuity if a meter is available. Remember to unplug the unit first. The image below will show how to remove the rear panel to access the element and thermostats. I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.

probablly element overheat /also known as the high limit usually the thermostat has failed or the actual element just remember if you replace the overheat its also a good idea to change the thermostat also because the temperture has exceeded the high limit very easy repair always power off unit and be able to use a test device to determine what has failed, good luck.

A:

I know that it can be very difficult to have your dryer stop working properly. There are several components that will cause the dryer to stop heating. This include the thermostat, the thermal cut-off, the high-limit thermostat, or the heating element. In order to find which part is the problem, you will need to test them. You can do this with a volt meter. You will be looking for continuity of 120 volts on each. If you are getting heat but no air, then the vent is most likely clogged. For this you will need to move the dryer away from the wall, and disconnect the vent tube. Use a vacuum to clean out the tube and the dryer, then reconnect it. You will also want to make sure the vent from the wall to the outside is clear as well. If all vents are clear, then you need to check the blower.

If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

If the electric dryer is running then the thermal fuse is okay.

If the dryer is running but not heating first check the two circuit breakers running the dryer. If one trips the dryer will have 120 volts to run on but would not have 240 volts to heat with. Turn each of the dryer's breakers off and then on and see if there is any improvement.

Part #34 the hi-limit might be the problem but the control thermostat part #42 or event the element might be the cause of a no heat problem.

The hi-limit and control thermostat can both be checked for continuity if a meter is available.

Remember to unplug the dryer first.

If no meter is available there is a trick to check the control and hi-limit thermostats.

Caution must be used. Be sure the dryer is unplugged. One at a time remove the two wires that attach to the thermostat and join them together. It is best if a little electrical tape is wrapped around the connection. This bypasses the thermostat. Try the dryer and see if it will heat with this thermostat bypassed. If it does heat you have found the problem. Replace the part right away and do not continue to use the dryer with the part bypassed.
