Usually what fails in an electric dryer after years of good service that the heating element or elements fail and it often blows a fuse in the dryer when it does this. You need to remove covers and check the heating element with an ohm meter, Sometimes the element is visible and can be seen to be broken. If you can't see the break avoiding handling the element wire as the older it is the more fragile it gets. No point breaking one that isn't already broken. The thermostat that controls the drying temperature can also fail but that is less likely. Heating elements are like light bulbs. They have a fixed life and burn out after a number of hours. Don't forget to replace the fuse if it has one and its blown with the same size fuse.

Dryer has no heat


Most of the time the no heat is caused by a high temperature limit fuse blowing due to a lack of air flow. The part is not expensive, but tracing it down in the particular dryer may be difficult. To give more direction I'd need more information. I am familiar with Speed Queen, Whirlpool and their renamed counterparts (some Hotpoint, Kenmore, etc.)

My dryer wont heat up...It just blows cold air....?????


It may be the thermal fuse but it could also be the heating element. The way to check is to open it up as described above and run the dryer. Watch the element and if it turns on then off again immediately then it is your thermal fuse. That is only about 15 dollars to fix and you can get a new fuse at any appliance repair shop. If the element doesn't ever come on then the element is burnt out and needs to be replaced. This is a little more expensive. I hope this was helpful and if you have any more questions feel free to ask me. Good luck.

Heating element


What did the original heater look like when you removed it? Was it burned in two? Make sure you are getting air circulation over the heater. Check your lint filter and air exhaust piping. Flapper outside on the exhaust pipe may be sticking.
