Does not rotate
In most cases, this should be a simple matter of replacing a broken belt. Pull away the front cabinet panel and lift the drum away from the holding cabinet. You can use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of lint or any other trapped materials. Check the tensioner roller by rotating it manually. Make sure that is able to move without restriction and that there are no visible cracks or breaks. Place the new belt around the drum and replace it within the cabinet.
Produces no heat
If you are dealing with an electric dryer and the thermal fuse appears to work, you will need to check the continuity of the heater element. Remove all wires that are connected to the heating element before testing it. If this component has malfunctioned, it should be replaced. The heating element may be accessed by removing the clip located at the top of the heater assembly. The box may be pulled out and the defective part can be replaced.
Will not start
A dryer that appears to be dead is most likely affected by a defective door switch or a broken/bent plunger. In most cases, a worn out door switch is a normal by-product of regular use. However, rough handling of the door can increase the likelihood of damage to the switch.
Maintaining the proper ventilation and airflow is necessary to ensure the optimal functioning of your dryer. The dryer functions by pulling in air from the room. This air is then heated by an electrical or gas heater before it is blown out through the clothes in the dryer to aid the condensation process. Without an adequate air supply, the dryer will not be able to pull in air for the drying process, and improper ventilation prevents it from expelling any wastewater vapour and hot air. Poor airflow will affect the drying efficiency of the appliance.
