Check and see if you have 220 volts to the dryer using a volt/ohm meter start at the dryer and work your way back following the circuit back to the fuse/breaker boxuntil you find 220 volts

Will not heat

it is either the heating element or thermofuse either way you will need to pull the front panel off. The screws are inside the dryers door frame, the pry up on the top it will pop up, disconnect dryer door switch lift top lid to a 90 degrees. the element is backside right looks like a spring, visually inspect, the thermofuse looks like a resistor that has two clips you can pull the clips off and tape them together and if you get heat then you will need a new one. Hope this helped tim

Blowing air no heat open up dryer at the bottom on the heating element there is a burnt looks like a small relay that be the problem for no heat

This problem is usually a blown thermofuse. Whirlpool Dryers usually have two thermostats or thermofuses on the heating element case. Unplug Dryer, remove one wire from the thermostat, and with an electrical tester you need to test for continuity or resistance between the two terminals on each thermostat. If you have no continuity on either thermostat, order new ones, they usually will only sell as a set. If their is any burned wiring you have to cut out the burned section and put on new wiring terminals. 99% of the time this is caused by a venting restriction, so make sure your vent is clean and not smashed or restricted, otherwise this problem will reoccurr. If your thermostats have continuity, test for continuity across your heating element terminals. If this doesn't take care of it let me know and I will walk you through other tests

Dryer starts but wont heat

There are 2 main cause for problem;

1) thermofuse may be fault or
2) you have bad heating element.

Check if you have continuity between 2 connectors on thermofuse; a black disc usually found at the back of the dryer. If it is okey, check the heater.
It's got to be one of these.

We have a Kenmore Gas dryer it runs but it doesnt get hot.. any ideas what it could be?

The heating element is most likely burned out. Try ordering a new heating element for your dryer and calling a repairman to put the new heating element in.

Need to change heating element on my kenmore dryer

they are pretty simple to change out.the heating element should be easy to access and once you get the old one out you simply put the new one in in its place. depending on the machine the heating element should be in the back wich means you have to take the top off the dryer to access it and then you will see what you need to do from there,its only held in but 2 or 3 screws.

Dryer thermofuse blown again

Probably restricted air flow caused by lint build up. Clean out dryer and all vent pipes, check damper outside and see if it opens. After you clean out everything run dryer on aif fluff/no heat cycle and see if there is good air flow outside. If it is electric it could be that the heating element is burned out and shorting out against the frame. This can cause overheating.
