Before you replace the heating element, check the thermal fuse. All heaters have safety thermal fuse. This opens in case the thermostat fails. This is normally attached on or near the heating element, looks like diode. (When replacing, do not solder ! this will damage the fuse)

Back panel. look for small sheet metal screws and disassemble metal panels (and possibly drum shaft bushings) until coil is seen.

SOURCE: Crosley Dryer Heats then stops

If im thinking right, this dryer has the element in the top left corner.  This unit has two thermostats, one mounted right above the element, and the other in the lower left front mounted on the fan housing.  The one in the front is called the high limit thermostat, which means when it gets to a preset high temp, it cuts off the system until cooling occurs.  The top thermostat, mounted above the element is the operating thermostat.  It probably is one of the two thermostats.  Its a very good idea to replace not only both of the thermostats, but the fuse as well.  The fuse kit (Maytag Part# LA-1053) comes with a thermostat and 2 fuses, be sure to follow he instructions on how to determine the fuse for electric and gas.  The high limit thermostat (Maytag Part# 53-0771) is an easy replacement.  Something is causing the unit to short cycle.  Sometimes you can hot-wire the operating thermostat (use caution, severe caution if doing this, not recommended if you arent sure whats going on).  By doing this (removing the two wires from the thermostat, taping them together), you can watch and see if the element stays on longer, at least until the high limit switch comes on.  This is really not recommended, if the high limit is out, it will not be good.  Just easier to replace them both.

My dryer turns on and runs but the clothes are not drying. its a crosley dryer and relatively new. checked lint filter and vaccumed up dust and lint and made sure that the screen and exhaust were clear

Sounds like the heating element or a fuse for the heating element. Impossible to tell you how to troubleshoot though unless I have the model type. Use google to type in your type and model number along with heating element (i.e., GE XXXXXX heating element troubleshooting) and you'll likely find some instructions for troubleshooting.

Crosley dryer will not turn on - worked fine one day and now will not work - suspect electrical switch but which one?

The thing that kills these dryers is lint and bad blower wheel. The lint causes excess heat in these dryers and that melts the blower wheel hub and it begins to slip. This makes the clothes take twice as long to dry and eventually trips the small thermal fuse mounted beside the heating element. themobilian_594.jpgthemobilian_595.jpg

No heat not drying clothes

for safety reasons it has its own fuse and that may be your issue (new fuse $5)
To be safe i'd also get new thermostat ($15)
