Question about Dryers
The following link will explain the most common causes of a dryer "no heat" problem:
To answer your question, "yes", this is a problem that is worth your effort repairing. This should not be a difficult repair and can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourselfer with just a little guidance. Read through the link I provided you, thoroughly. Pay particular attention to the paragraph that discusses proper ventilation as most dryer heat related problems are attributed to poor (or clogged) ventilation. In general, most commonly, if the heating circuits fail, its for a reason. This is usually caused by overheating due to poor air flow. If you cannot remember the last time your dryer heat ducting was inspected or cleaned, it may be a good time to do so now. If you do not ensure the dryer has proper air flow, replacing parts could become futile as these same components will more than likely fail again. If you have questions, or require addtional assistance please let me know. I hope this helps you.
PS Check your thermal cut-out (TCO) first. This component acts as a fuse and is usually the first to go bad when a dryer fails. If the TCO fails, it is strongly recommended that you replace the hi-limit thermostat at the same time. These components are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of any replaced parts. NOTE: Do all components checks with the dryer UNPLUGGED. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.
