It is usually on the area next to the heater but not on the heater. Sounds like its opening to early. But it could also be bad air flow causing a safety to open. Could also be the timer not completing the heat circuit to the correct place on the heating element. You would need a wire diagram to see if you have more than 1 operating thermostat. and a timer circuit diagram if it has more than 1 heat setting. If you read diagrams these will explain themselves.

If you feel confident here are the main things to do on checking for no heat Electric Heating Dryer:
1 Check for 220 Volt at the heater entrance to the heater box (accessible from picking up the top on most dryer models).
If you have 220v there the heater element is out.
2 If you don't have 220v on the terminals of the heater the problem is in the controls.
The fuse link, the timer contacts, the centrifugal switch on the motor, and the heater safety thermostat and operating thermostat(s), are all suspect and have to be eliminated 1 by 1.
Hope this helps.
With any luck all you need is a new element. Clean the duct out while replacing the heater if so because the main thing that causes heater element burn out is low air flow. A kinked Dryer vent hose, lint, and plugged up fan circulator on the motor, or if yours has little holes in the inside cabinet where the air is taken to be heated and recirculated, these can get clogged with lint also and cause a problem are the 4 main causes of low air flow..

Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly Thank you and good luck.

There is a lack of heat. It gets a little warm


Please ensure that the venting from the dryer to the outside of the house is clean and free of lint.
Ensure the venting behind the dryer is not kinked.

Long time to dry issues are usually caused by restricted venting to the outside.

Since you have heat this may solve the problem.

Take too long time to get cloth dried


how much are you putting in ? Is it a 220 volt dryer? May have a dead line (electris) to heating coils, or thermaostat is not functioning and letting the dryer coils get to operating temperature. Your heat setting control may be faulty. I wouls look at heat control first.

Maytag Neptune gas dryer sense dry time at 99, little or no heat


If this is a gas dryer, I'd suggest an inspection by the gas company or qualified technician. If the jets aren't firing correctly, you are wasting gas and possibly creating a hazard.

Will not dry clothes fully. the machine heats fine but it takes two or more cycles to fully dry a little load. someone told me about a part that may need repaced around the lint trap.. Any ideas?


Your lint exhaust is blocking the heat flow.
Remove the vent from the rear of the dryer and run a timed cycle load for 40 minutes.
If laundry is dry, repair the outside vent.
If not dry,open the dryer cabinet and clean the inside lint and heat vent.
