Hello, A dryer can have no heat for a few reasons, the first thing to check are the breakers or the fuses in the fuse panel. If one fuse is open the motor will run but there will be no heat. If this is not the problem I need more details (make, model# etc.) Thanks good luck

Dryer won't dry clothes

Heating element faulty not giving as much heat as it should

How to Troubleshoot a Clothes Dryer

<span>Instructions</span> <ol> If the Dryer Won't Start <li>Check the plug and reset the circuit breaker. It could simply mean that there's no power getting to the machine.<br /> </li> <li> Make sure the door is closer and the the latch isn't obstructed by any articles of clothing.<br /> </li> <li> Call a professional if these don't solve the problem. More extreme culprits for a dyer that won't start are a bad door switch, a failed drive belt, a failed motor or a bad thermal fuse (protects the motor).<br /> </li> If the Dryer Dries Slowly <li>Clean the lint filter. Remove the lint and clean it with hot water and a toothbrush. A clogged filter can cause slow drying.<br /> </li> <li> Clean the exhaust duct. A clog here can also prevent the drying from drying.<br /> </li> <li> Straighten out an kinks in the exhaust duct.<br /> </li> <li> Remove some clothes from a heavy load. Overloading puts undo stress on the machine creating an eternity to retrieve dry clothes.<br /> </li> <li> Replace the door gasket if it's gone bad.<br /> </li> <li> If the dryer simply won't heat, call a professional. Most causes of this--gas-supply problems, bad igniters, defective thermostat, failed heating coil, et al--can only be fixed by a dryer mechanic.<br /> </li> If the Dryer Squeals or Rumbles When Running <li> Replace the driver-belt idler pulley. Usually a professional is needed.<br /> </li> <li> Lubricate or replace the rollers that support the drum. Can be done on your own, but best fixed by a professional.<br /> </li> <li> Clean out lint from the blower wheel. A clogged vacuum blower is a noisemaker.<br /> </li></ol> jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

MODEL PBSR353EWOWW. Dryer is functioning

One or more of your heating elements is probably out.

Tumbles but no heat, Check Heating Element and Thermostats and they checked fine, Checked power going into machine and have 120 v. on each leg.

You say you check the elements so I assume you ohmed them out with a multimeter. Check the high limit to see that it is not tripped just ohm the sensor if it ohms out then it is probably okay. You have power going to the machine but it stops somewhere before it gets to the elements if the elements are okay. I would start tracing power to see where it stops it may be the clothes dry sensor making the machine think the clothes are dry so it shuts the elements off.

Take too long time to get cloth dried

how much are you putting in ? Is it a 220 volt dryer? May have a dead line (electris) to heating coils, or thermaostat is not functioning and letting the dryer coils get to operating temperature. Your heat setting control may be faulty. I wouls look at heat control first.

Dryer blowing & rolling but no heat

There should be a little white plug on the front of the dryer. (lower left) Take that out and start the dryer. IF your ignitor is working you will be able to see it turn red through the whole. If you dont change the ignitor. then it will light the burner.
