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