Good luck.

I have a white-westinghouse electric dryer and it stoped heating up. It still tumbles just with no heat.


In the back of the dryer you will find a high limit mounted to the element housing sometimes they can be reset and sometimes they just have to be replaced.They can be tested with a meter.or you can jump them out with a wire to test them .this would happen if you had a plugged vent.

Kenmore catalyst electric dryer. about 3 yrs old.


You may only be receiving 110 volts, instead of the 240 volts needed to operate. (Thus, only the light coming on)

Did you reset the dryer circuit breakers?
Are you receiving 240v to the plug?
