There are high/heat limit switches in the rear near the heating element. The switch needs to be replaced because its not shutting the heat off when it reaches correct temperature. Rear of dryer needs to be disassembled for this repair...............
the first thing to check is the ignitor .how ever there is a thermal fuse located on the exhaust duct inside the dryer that may be bad this woulld cause the unit to run and not get hot.this needs to be checked with an ohm meter for continuity there is more than one thermal fuse so check them all just to be sure.i hope this has helped.please let me now how things turned out.good luck
First check lint in filter and clean. Sometimes the lint sticks to the themostat in the back of the dryer and the thermstat thinks the dryer is overheating (a safety control). If still not heating it has to be in the heating control unit at inside botton of dryer. If you have a Sears part house close by, they will test the unit for free. That's the best shot I have from here. When inspecting dryer or removing heater unit, be sure dryer is unplugged.
If this info helps alittle , please rate this advise - Thanks & Good luck
most dryers have a thermal switch or breaker in the cavity somewhere, they can become worn over time and will stop heating, the item probably looks like a copper arm that touches a contact similar to a old morse code key by looks
Have someone check to be sure you have 240 volts to the plug. The dryer will run on 120 volts but must have 240 volts to the heating unit. If you 240 volts you probably need a heating element or control.
The heating element and thermostat are located behind the front panel of the dryer. you will need to remove the door, then the retaining screws. the heater / element is located on the left side as you are facing the front of the dryer and has to sheet meta screws (upper back top / and front bottom) which will need to be removed. the unit has several colored wires for the thermostat and switch. remove these (remember which goes where) and the enitre unit will come out easily.
