You have to first check the power getting (or not getting) to the dryer. Its uses two legs of 110V, but they are 180 out of phase with one another. If one is not getting power to the dryer, it will still run on the other leg, but no heat. check the thermofuse The thermofuse is located on the heater element housing, but that may be the problem.

My Whirpool Gold dryer is heating up to dry the clothes, but the clothes are damp /wet.


Hello

When the dryer wont heat up and dry clothes it means that the thermostat/thermal fuse is bad and needs replacement. This part is located on the blower wheel housing inside the duct, please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dryer heats, tumbles clothes, blows air out exhause vent, but wont dry clothes


what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know

Kenmore heavy duty clothes dryer will not heat


REMOVE THE BACK AND CHECK THE HEATER FUSE AND THE HEATING ELEMENT-MIKE

No heat


ok so you have some heat.your dryer unless an ge one has one element so if you have heat its working.then what you have is an exust problem.once you heat up the clothes and cause the moisture to evaporate then it must be able to leave the dryer or it reclings to the clothes,hence lond dry times.to test this dry a load with the venting undone and the dryer pulled out.dont worry it wont start a fire/never!its about 180 degress to 130 of moist air. if ok then confirms that venting is blocked.some times dryers get blocked internaly also but do the other first.God bless,tom
