The fuse is a small plastic piece with only 2 wirs connected to it and it will be behind the back cover or the ones that the back dont come off, it is inside the lower panel in front ,,, check your break ,,,, it may have trip it even if it dont look or feel like it.

Drying machine not working, the clothes always wet.

If the dryer doesn't heat, but the drum turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is blown, it will have to be replaced.

Amana dryer model YNED7200TW will not start. there is power, but start button does nothing. Resetting breaker did not work. Any ideas?

Thermal Fuse

Item #2986 (OEM Part)

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

My Hirundo is not drying well. After hours of spinning the clothers are still wet, and not like usual. The water is draining. Is there a heat elementy to replace? A vent to clear?

Make sure all vents are clean and clear. Next, check the thermal fuse. It should be located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. It can be tested by using a multimeter or ohmmeter to test for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a blown thermal fuse.
Another cause could be a faulty heating element. It can be tested in the same manner as the thermal fuse. Hope this helped and best wishes.

No heat when dryer running - Maytag mdg6000

Check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. These components can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity indicates a bad component. The thermal fuse is about one inch long and is located in the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Washer dryer works but no heat

Some dryers have a thermal trip which can be reset often from the rear. Other than that, best to check the heating element with a multimeter - this will show you if power is reaching it, and if so, the element is bust. If no power, then it will be a wiring fault or perhaps a problem with the PCB electronics.
