Question about Dryers
Filter got clogged, now no heat. cleaned filter, but still no heat. im not sure if there is a reset button on this model. please help
If the filter got clogged it allows also to get the debris to get into or on other things. If possible turn the dryer around or lay it down to get access to the interior, and check of the thermocouple is debris free.
The Thermocouple can also be defective, Remove the old one and go to a hardware store to find an identical one. (Same length and type). There should be a reset button on newer models, which is usually accessible thru small door fastened with a screw.
Depending on your model, there is a automatic lighting button, others must be lighted with a match. Read the directions how long to hold down the button until the light stays on. A defective Thermocouple will not keep the pilot light on.

My guess is that the heater element has gone out. There could also be a lint clog in the exhaust vent...it 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!

you have to call service centre if under warranty or you'll invalidate it if you have a go. it will be the element or a heat sensor/switch most likely.
