There are two fuses, but first make sure that you have 220 volts going to the dryer, then check the heater to make sure the element is not shorted out, if the fuse on the heater is blow then you may have a blocked vent causing it to over heat blowing the fuse. It the dryer is dead it is the fuse on the blower housing . If you need more help I am here please send a model so I can be more specific for you thanks.

Dryer not drying


another user's Q&A for the same issue try that or call may tag, they are supper helpful

Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:

Proper Voltage

If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.

8574d88.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

d5b5af3.jpg Thermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
77d6bd4.jpg Thermostat

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.

    Admiral heavy duty super capacity dryer won't heat up.


    see this causes , fix it. God bless you, use the common sense
    Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

    Door Switch

    If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.

    Thermal Fuse / Thermal Cut out

    On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel or behind the front panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing or is sometimes round and made of metal and plastic.

    If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse this is the most common reason for blowing the fuse. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

    Wiring

    Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

    WON'T HEAT AT ALL


    check fuse, may need a thermostat,motor switch or a heating element. Check the heating element first. You need a voltage meter to do this. And hopefully the dryer is plugged into 240 electric

    Where is the fuse located ?


    The fuse is located on the blower housing next to the thermister (heat control). You won't see it till you get filter housing off there:

    I REPALCED THE TIMER CONTROL AND MY DRYER WILL


    Always check to make sure you have power at the unit. If power is present and you replaced the timer control there is something else causing your unit not to fire up. I will assume your unit is an electric dryer. Before you check anything inside the dryer make sure your power cord is unplugged. Then check the door switch for continuity. If the door switch test okay then check the thermal fuse located on the blower assembly. Remove one lead and test for continuity, if okay then check the upper limit on the heating box. Again, this is a continuity check and again remove one of the leads before you check for continuity.

    The ehating element is relatively easy to replace. You should be able to find a scematic wiring diagram in the owners manual. If you dont have one check on line they may have one on thier web page. While you are doing this go ahaed and check your master thermal fuse. It will be depicted onm the diagram to. The fuse is usually the cause.
