Re: dryer not getting hot

Check the heater element for open circuit electrically, if that is fine then check for any cut outs or thermostats also for open circuit, there are about 3 cut outs located in various places, depending on type and make of dryer so its no good telling you where to look, its trial and error, the cut outs are normally small round, or square and about 10 to 20cms thick with 2 wires from it

best of luck, and test with power plug removed

You didn't mention if the motor runs or if it heats. If it does both of these, you'll need a new belt.
