The following link will give you some common advice for a dryer with a no heat problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

First, check your receptacle power to ensure you have the proper voltage. Then, I would recommend you check and clean your dryer ventilation ducting. Clogged ducting is the number one contributor to dryer heat related problems. If a dryer is left in a clogged condition, any replaced components will fail again. Most commonly, the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) will fail first. It is designed to protect the heating element in an overheat condition. I'm not saying this is your fault, as you will need to check all the components listed to rule out all possibilities.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you need further assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: If the TCO is found to be defective, replace the Hi-Limit Thermostat as well. Often, these two parts are sold as a set. Failure to do so, may lead to premature failure of either component.

Kenmore HE4t gas dryer will not heat. One load


The Sensor for heating element cut-off is bad. It wrongly detects the unit is overheated so it signals to inhibit the gas valve not to open. Since it is not opened, gas is not burnt through the manifold hence not heat why the machine is tumbling. Good luck.

I have a Kenmore electric dryer 68721 that doesn't heat. It cycles and tumbles.


Hi,
Most likely you have a bad heating element or a bad wire/connection. The only way to test is with the cabinet open and the dryer running. I would recommend that only a qualified person or tech perform this. I hope this helps. If I can t anything else to help please let me know.

Dryer heats, tumbles clothes, blows air out exhause vent, but wont dry clothes


what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know

Dryer won't heat--element replaced; tumbles fine


Before you purchase any more parts, you should have use of a multi meter. If the dryer is not heating at all, and of the following parts could be bad.......Operating (cycling) thermostat, high limit thermostat, thermal fuse, timer, or motor centrifugal switch. All but the motor switch can be easily checked with the dryer UNPLUGGED using the ohms feature of the meter.
