My dryer is running, but does not seem to be heating. What should I do?

There are two house circuits or fuses in an electric dryer's circuit. If one of these is tripped or blown, the drum may turn but the heater will not operate.

If this is the case, you’ll need to reset the circuit breaker or replace the house fuse.

Additionally, you can check the following:

Cycle or temperature setting. Check the cycle selector—if the Air Fluff cycle or temperature is selected, the dryer will tumble without heat.Outlet wiring.

Have a qualified electrician verify that the voltage being supplied is correct at 240v.Gas supply valve (for gas models only).

Be sure the gas supply valve to gas dryer is open. (See Installation Instructions for details).

Gas supply tank (for gas models only). If you have a gas dryer and your LP gas tank is empty, refill or replace the tank. If there has been an interruption in the natural gas supply, call your natural gas company.

Air supply around a gas dryer. The dryer needs space around it for proper ventilation to support the gas burner. Do not stack or place laundry or rugs against the front or back of the dryer.

To install a dryer in a closet or alcove, please refer to the Installation Instructions.
