The t-stats have blown.. these are located on the top of the heater on top of the drum.. To check to see if their blown check the continuity if they are blown then there will be no continuity ... They come in a pair and are easily replaced.. All you have to do is take off the lid...

SOURCE: The dryer is blowing cold

Find your thermal protection switch. It looks like a big round button with two screws holding it on either side. (Make sure your drier is unplugged!) There will be a wire going from it to the heating element. It is what regulates the temperature, so it doesn't overheat. Unplug the wires off it and check across the terminals with an ohm meter. It should have full continuity. If not, it's your problem. Replace it. Easy repair.

Dryer not drying clothes


Hello, does the dryer drum turn? If the dryer drum is moving. Is the dryer blowing hot air, cold air, no air at all? Now, if it's doing everything mention above escept blowing hot air then you'll need a new heating element. If not blow air, then the drum belt is broken, belt off, or the drum motor has gone south. It was put for a quitt. Which mean in New Mexico, they fired me, I don't work, no job, finished, I'am out of here, don't bury me with my wires exposed. I hope I was some help to you. have a nice day and be safe, GB. stewbison

The drum is turning but it's blowing cold air, no hot air not even warm. The last time it was used it was hotter than usual, but now nothing.


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

The drum rotates and blows air, but it doesnt blow hot air. I already changed out the thermal fuse.

Dryer runs, rotates, and air blows but does not blow hot air, therefore cloths will not dry.

Dryer drum stopped rotating, dryer blower continues to work.


The belt probably broke, and coincidentally happened while drying the shoes. The belt is easy to replace. Open the back and you'll probably see the belt laying on the bottom
