Question about Dryers
Cleared out all vents, and even run it with the hose off the back and no heat....I could not find any clogs to cause the problem either. it blows air fine but cannot heat up. I removed back panel but have no clue at what I am looking for...
The following link will give you some advice on a dryer no heat problem:
Pay particular attention to the paragraph that discusses proper ventilation. Most dryer heat related problems are caused by poor air flow. I know you mentioned cleaning out the vents, but did you ensure the ducting is clear all the way the where it exits your home? Have you also verified there are no kinks or excessive bends that may restrict air flow? Just some addtional things to consider...
If you have good strong air flow, but no heat, you probably have a failed internal component. If you will post back with your complete model number (located around the door opening on most models) I can determine how your dryer is contructed and let you know how to identify the internal components. Please let me know. I hope you find this helpful.

didc, on a gas dryer, if the thermal fuse blows it will still rotate, but will not heat. Since this is a gas dryer, see if the ignitor is glowing. If it is, then you know the thermal fuse is good. If not, the thermal fuse may be blown or the ignitor itself and thus the reason for no heat. Catriver.
