Question about Dryers
RESET BUTTON WONT WORK
Check the Circuit Breaker. It is a double Breaker Switch. one side is for the heat one for the motor. If that is good then it's possibly the Heating Element or one of the two heat sensors.

the problem could be several different things. first remove the front panel and see if the globar glows. if it doesn't check it for cracks and replace if needed. if it glows, replace your gas coils, they are usually the problem

Your dryer has two separate fuses, one to turn the drum, and one to heat it. It sounds like you have a broken fuse. Unless this is a new installation, then you need to make sure you have the proper electric cord attached. If it's mistakenly connected with a range cord, it won't supply enough power to the dryer.

what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know

If the dryer tumbles but does not warm up, you either have one or two blown thermal fuses, a burned out element if it’s electric, or a burned out igniter if it’s gas.
If one of the two thermal fuses are blown you will not get heat. Thermal fuses blow (and are not resetable, they must be replaced) when the machine gets too hot. Often this is caused by not enough air flow through the machine. Check and make sure your exhaust vent is not clogged. Clean it the best you can to get all the lint, dead mice, bird nests, etc. out. Also make sure air is blowing out of the machine when it is turned on. If not you have a blower problem.
The thermal fuses are located on the element casing. They each have two wires coming out of them. They are about 3/4 inch round with screw ears on the sides so they are about 1 1/2 inch long and about an inch across. With a multimeter, check the continuity across the terminals. If there is no continuity the fuse needs to be replaced.
To check the element(s), you can either visually look and see if it is broken or check the continuity with a multimeter. No continuity means the element is broken. Replace if necessary.
To check for a broken igniter, take out the old one and look at it. If it looks broken or very burned, replace it.
