Re: Magtag Electric Dryer
Did you check the breaker closely. Dryers work on 220 volts, usually 30 amps and that means TWO 110 breakers attached together must be good and putting out 110 volts each. One may be burnt or disabeled and the other working. Also check at the dryer receptacle and make sure you have 220 or more volts.

after checking and replacing the vent going outside still the air was not venting and inside my drier everything was wet although the air was hot. After removing the rear panel i saw the blower belt disconnected. it took me some time to get the belt on but everything is ok and the air is venting and clothes getting dried. Also note that the little pulley came off its positio too.
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly.

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

Please check your dryer venting, all of it, or at least as much as you can. I would start at the discharge outside. May be full of lint, covered by plants. or a bird may have built a nest inside. If air is not flowing through the dryer and to the outside clothes get hot but stay wet. Is the case of the dryer hot? Another indicator your vent needs to be cleared. This should be done before you run the dryer again, or you could cause thermal fuses and other little gizmos to break.
You have a serious clog somewhere in your dryer exhaust ventilation. I would recommend you STOP using the dryer immediately and clean both the interior and all the vent ducting from where it exits the dryer to where it exits the home. the burning is coming from lint build up in and around the heating element and its beginning to smolder. This is a potential fire hazard and may end up causing the heating circuits to fail. The condensation comes from the the inability of the hot air (which is mixed with humidity from your clothing) condensating inside the vent duct. The lint starts to collect and get wet to the point of saturation. Then it begins to cause water to form and leak out of the ducting and on to your floor. You do not want this condensation inside the dryer where the heating circuits are. The following link will provide with some guidance for future reference:
