Different makes have different coloured dots but mainly blue dot is low temp and red is high.
The high temp will be to the left as you look at them.
Hope this helps & thanks for using Fixya.

Dryer will not get hot

The likely causes of the problem, in order of most common to least:
1) Th heating element has failed (broken) and needs replacement.
2) One of the "overheat thermostats" has failed, needs replacement.
3) The heater fuse has blown, if your machine has one.
4) A wire has burned in two, often near the heat element in the back or bottom of the machine.
5) A wire has burned in two at the connection (from the plug) inside the back of the machine.
6) A circuit breaker has "tripped" inside your fuse box, located in your garage, hall, basement, or wherever.
Be blessed.

I believe that you probably purchased a kit of fuses which provides fuses for several different types of dryers. That way the parts store can sell you the kit without knowing exactly what type of dryer you have. If I am right about this, there is no yellow fuse in your dryer, you will need to buy a new one to replace the red dot fuse. Also, you will want to find out what is causing it to blow again so quickly, probably your exhaust duct is a little plugged, causing the inside chamber to get too hot.
