Heating is not hot

Either the wires to the heating element have burned out, the heating element is shot, or the temperature sensor is shot. Unplug the dryer and check the heating element for continuity, check for burned wires between the relay and the coils, and check for continuity across the cold temperature sensor. Replace any defective parts.

Dryer willnot heat

heating eliment is most likely burned out. Better off getting new dryer. But if that is not an option then call a repair person that can replace the heating element.

Brand new dryer heating element burned out.

If air flow is restricted this can cause it. Or if your voltage is high or if you have received an element that has been stretched and is loose this could cause it. You say immediate and how long in loads or time is this? Are you sure the element still has full voltage (220V aprox) to the element?
