What is the make and model of your dryer? Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)
an internal thermostat called a snapstat and/or your heating element and/or your dryer ventmay not be working or needs cleaning. you need someone experienced in testing with an ohmmeter to test and get back to us.thanks karl
