Question about Dryers
The following link describes how to diagnose and repair a dryer no heat problem:
If your dryer vent was clogged, chances are you have lint build up INSIDE the dryer as well. Read through the paragraph that discusses the proper ventilation for a dryer. I would recommend you open the dryer cabinet and clean it out thoroughly. Lint build around the heating element can smolder and is a fire hazard.
The most common failed component in a dryer that overheats is the thermal cut-out (TCO). If the TCO is bad, it is strongly recommended that you replace the Hi-Limit Thermostat with it. These components are usually sold as a set. Failure to replace both components can result in premature failure.
Make sure you follow the advice given and check and verify all possibilities to rule out multiple component problems. In addition, make sure you read the bottom section of the link, first and make sure your voltage at the wall receptacle is correct.
I hope this information helps you. Let me know if you require further assistance.
