Question about Dryers
After verifying and cleaning lint trap, rear unit vent, ducting, wall vent and venting slits in door and on bottom of unit. Also have resetted the breaker, just in case. I want to know the part number of the heat sensor and heating element on this dryer so that I may order them to replace them. Unless I am wrong and that there might be something else defective on this dryer that all works fine except the no heat situation. BTW the unit was purchased in 2008. firstname.lastname@example.org

SOURCE: my dryer smells as if
huuum At your service!
You told me that your dryer smells as if something is burning after running only a minute or 2, and the damp clothes are "smoking" NOT steaming. Vent duct is clean as is lint trap
I find two answers are possibilities for this situation.
1.If it is an electric dryer one of the connecting wires to the element is lose or not snug, and the electricity is arcing across the gape, so you smell a tiny bit of burn.
2. Or the thermostat is malfunctioning and you need hands on service to diagnose and change this part.
DO NOT RUN THE DRYER!
It is a fire hazard!
Sounds like a Thermostat problem to me!!
How old is the appliance?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
And can pay for them selves in only a few years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You need a hands on tech for this repair!
You will be fine
Bless You huuum
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF

SOURCE: dryer does not heat
Check the thermal cut-off, the thermostat, and the heating element. Most times one of the tree is the culprit.
I have seen a bad timer cause the no heat problem a few times but 99% of the time it is one of the three I mentioned.
If you change the thermal cut-off make sure you get both the cut-off and the thermostat. A stuck T-stat will take out a cut-off in a big hurry.

Poor air flow would be my guess. How long is the vent hose? Does it have more than one angle/turn before venting outside? Is the lint gathering around the outer edges of the door? Keeping the length of air travel shorter will improve the operation.
