Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Won't Dry Clothes

The dryer turns and air is flowing although there is no heat being produced. I checked to see if there were any breaks in the heating element and it is in good shape. I suspect maybe a faulty thermostat but I'm not experienced enough to diagnose this problem myself.
