Check the cycle selector control to make sure a heating
cycle has been selected. The selector should be in an "Off" position
when not in use, but it should be turned to a drying cycle when in use.
On some models, make sure you are not accidentally running the dryer on
the "Air" cycle, which does not use heat.
Check the gas supply valve to make sure it is open if your dryer is a gas dryer. If it is not open, just lift the valve open.
Look at your house's main breaker box to determine whether a
circuit breaker is tripped. The electric dryer runs on 220-240 volts
and has a double breaker. If the breaker for the heating element is
tripped, the drum may tumble the clothes without heat. Turn the dryer's
breakers to off, then back on; test whether the dryer will produce heat.
Consult a technician if troubleshooting does not resolve the problem.
Check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer-circuit breaker-pair. Push off, then on. If immediately re-trips, the dryer has a dead short circuit in it. If they hold, then retry the dryer. If it now works, ok! If not, recheck the breakers as above. If tripped again, there is a likely short in the dryer's heater assembly. The drum must be removed to access the heater.
before you take it apart make sure you have not lost 1 phase of the 220 volt line into dryer , dryers will run and appear fine on 110 volts be will not heat check fuse or breaker and re-set breaker even if it does not appear tripped , if fuse in line turn off power and remove fuses and check with an ohm meter , then if you have a volt meter check for 220 volts @ socket of dryer , then we will talk dis-assembly
check your power if one leg is down eg 110 to the motor drier will run but not heat if the heater is getting 110 but not the motor drier will do nothing check for a partial tripped breaker eg one side tripped but not fully just turn off and reset check outlet for 220 check power cord at terminal block for loose or burned cord unplug first lol if cord is burned just means it was loose when in stalled most of the time this promb is elec.
