Re: had thermostates checked and still no heat
How does the dealer know if they are good? Did he come to your home to check it? and if so why did he not check for power to the element? If your heater and t-stats are good the only thing that will prevent your heater from operating is the centrifugal switch on the motor. that's provided your t-stats and heater are in fact good. And you have the full 220 volts suppy to the dryer. Keep in mind the heating element is the only thing that's runs on 220 if you only have 120 powering the unit your timer and motor will still run. you can check the power by removing the plug cover on the dryer, you will have a red,white,and black wires from white to black you will read 120, from white to red you will read 120 and from red to black you will read 220 if you don't read 220 between black and red or 120 from red or black to white you have a power issue and nothing wrong with the dryer. Good luck hope this helps you

If you have 240 VAC across the element, but the element is not heating, then you have a bad element. If you don't have 240 VAC at the element, then work your way back with the voltmeter to find where the voltage is dropping
blown fuse takes 2 (30 amp fuses to allow a dryer to heat )
thermostates defective eather limits or cycling thermostats
moter switch defective or plugged with lint not allowing the switch to close when it starts
timer not asking for heat
no signal to timer from temp selector witch
(solv ys prob)
Some dryers have a thermo-fuse. It doesn't look like a normal fuse. It can look lide another thermost or a long plastic device with two wires foing to it. Also they have a high limit thermost that can open. There is a switch on the motor that won't let power go to the heater until the motor reaches a certain RPM. If this is a 220 volt dryer, it could also be the house circuit breaker. If one half of the breaker is bad or tripped, the motor can still run but you will have no heat. If the dryer has a heat selector switch IE delicate, no heat, or high heat. You should check that for continuity when in one of the heat selection positions. The timer can also cause no heat. Check the timer contacts when it set in a dry cycle. Hope this helps.
more than likely that u have blown heater element u can test your element with a power cord connect it to the live earth and neutral and plug it in and element should heat up if not it will be your element that has blown
