It could be a defective heating element or thermostat. Open the service panel and check for 115/220V on the heating element tags. If you can read the 115/220V, you should replae the element. In case you can't read it - the thermostat should be replaced. Good luck!

You should check the thermal fuse - my guess would be a lint blockage elevated the temperature and activated the thermal cut out fuse. You can locate it and short circuit it to confirm that it is the problem and if it is replace it

My Bosch Nexxt 500 dryer keeps tripping the hi-limit cut out.

Try checking your exhaust vent pipe for excessive bends and kinks, make sure there is good strong airflow coming out the exhaust where it exits the building.

My dryer is about 7-8 years old. It has been taking longer to dry clothes for a little while now but within the last few days will not heat up. Spins fine, just no heat. Breakers are good.Any solutions?

Have you cleaned the blower vent pipes lately. Sounds like the vents may be stopped up with lint and it got too hot. Clean vents and where the fan blade is to be sure the fan can turn. I have found everything you can think of in the blower housing that would keep the fan from turning.Be sure and get the lint out they all have some. As far as the heat not working check all thermastats , the thermal fuse on blower box and thermal cutoff usely on the heater box. and the heater coil also check with an ohmeter from heater coil connections to the metal box it's in ,the coil could be grounded inside the box.
Hope this helps.

Check the fuse on the blower housing.
To get to the heating element on most of these dryers you remove the back dust cover: whirlpool%20dryer.jpg 1.

Amana electric dryer will not heat/ LEA60AW Everything works fine but no heat...have cleaned all lint from inside the dryer by taking front panel off. What else should I check.... I noticed it wouild come...

Check for 220 Volt at the heater entrance to the heater box (accessible from picking up the top on most models). If you have 220v there the heater element is out. 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 (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 on the motor are the 3 main causes of low air flow. If yours has little holes in the inside cabinet these can get clogged with lint also and cause a problem. Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly Thank you and good luck.

Hi the my filter light keeps flashing and iv got no heat!

My guess is that the heater element has gone out. There could also be a lint clog in the exhaust takes air out through the filter...across the heater element....and back through the tumbler to heat the clothes. This is usually what causes heat elements to go out is the excess lint that gets on them and causes them to overheat and burn out!

Dryer is on and tumbling, but not heating up

Its very hard testing without a test meter.. volts and ohms. The Casing & heater is on the right side facing the back of the dryer. Metal silver in color, the heater is inside of the caseing. You can take the heater out and look for broken coils on the heater to see if it needs replacing. You have a to lift the top up to get at the top screw of the heater casing, take the 2 screws out of the flap where the lint filter goes. Use a putty knife to push the clips in on the front of the dryer and look to the back on the left side to remove the top screw of the casing. check the heater a post results.. theres many more things to check if the heater is good.
