Re: no heat when drying
You need to check the heater element and thermostats which are lolcated behhind a removeable panel at the rear of the dryer..
You will need a meter to do this. Remove one wire from each thermostat and with the meter on the ohms range, test for continuity,if the stats are o/k you will get full scale deflection on the meter., if no movement then stat faulty, you must replace both stats at the same time.
take note which stat goes where as it is important you get them the right way round.
If stats o/k then the heater element is probably faulty.Plz rate my solution.
PS, make sure all filters and vents are clean
Particularly the filter at the bottom left, remove it and wash it out under running water.

A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.
Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.
GOD IS still GOOD !!!!
I also have the same dryer with a constant beeping while trying! Did as suggestion 4 and then took the back off, cleaned the heater matrix and thermostats, checked the rear draining pipes...so far so good!
Hi, Well if it is getting hot but not drying the clothes than most likely you have an airflow problem. Take off the vent hose on the back of the dryer. It will be plugged up with lint either inside that vent on the dryer or the hose will be plugged somewhere. If you clean this or just plain replace the old hose this will take care of the problem. Good Luck. feed back is appreciated.
The reversing tumble action is controllerd by the timer, so it could be contacts in timer.
It is useable running in one direction.
Check for loose or broken wires to motor as well.
Hope this is off some help to you.
I have just had a similar problem and fixed it today.
The "Empty Water" light was staying on and no heat was given out to dry the load.
I found it to be the float switch in the condenser unit at the back left. It had stuck with fluff and debris. I cleaned out the condenser reservoir and the polystrene float and now all is well.
To get to this unit you must first,
Take of the top and the left hand side panel.
Locate the 2 locking tabs that hold the top half of the condenser onto the back panel and release this part.
Remove this by releasing 2 further tabs that hold it to it's bottom half,
and you will see the float switch assembly on the left hand side.
Clean out the condenser reservoir of any water and aslo clean the polystyrene float, it needs to be free to slide up and down between the plastic guides.
Hope this helps.
