Question about Dryers
It could be the fault of timer.
it could also be the two thermostats.
and also the two heating elements.
it also Sounds like your start switch is bad and it will stop when you open the door but comes back on when you close it, or when you open the door it dosent stop and will still run that sound like a bad door switch ,
or it could either be the problem
It is possibe that you have dropped one side of your power and the machine is only getting 120 volts and not 240 like it should it will still run, but wont heat insure there is 240 volts to the machine if you have continiuty on both of those this could quite possibly be the problem!!!!!!!

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.

It sounds like the heater coil is defective. You can purchase replacements at Sears. They are not teriibly hard to replace but if you don't feel comfortable, Sears can install them.
