There is a thermostat inside the drum if you open the door and feel up the front you will feel a disc with 2 screws holding it in remove the screws to expose the stat pull the stat out there will be 2 wires attatched to it. If you have a ohm meter check for continuity across the 2 conections or If you connect those 2 wires together and try the machine it should heat if so you will need to replace that stat. If still no heat i would suspect the heater to have failed

I am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
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.


Thermal fuse
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.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Why is my Zanussi dryer stopping after 4 minutes it is heating and tumbling


As you are aware, every year manufacturers of products in this country try to make their products safer, and in the case of clothes dryers, they try to make them less susceptible to fires from accumulated lint.
To that end, it is probable that your clothes dryer has accumulated lint internally, and either some fuse (or fuses) or one of the "shut-off-thermostats" is kicking in every time you start it.
Someone will need to take the whole machine apart and clean out the lint, and check the fuses and thermostats with an electrical tester.
The lint that accumulates is not caught by the lint screen, it is throughout the inside of the machine in the tubing.
God bless your efforts.
( P.S. I have taken several machines apart and found a whole shoe-box full of accumulated lint inside.)

Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.

There is a thermostat inside the machine just inside and top, put your head in and look up. Took my whole machine apart before finding the wire which led to it!! It should be Normally Closed (NC) and cuts the power to the heating element when too hot or broken! Hope this helps.
