Thermostat controls heat. There is also a motor centrifugal switch, in the element circuit,

that the motor closes to insure the motor is turning. Try another heat setting. There is

more than one thermostat. You may have blown the 'thermal fuse' too, which requires

replacement.
It is possible that your element has failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint filter and the exhaust vent tube and all the way in
to the dryer. Hot air exit is restricted.

Change element in a samung dv665j


Usually, one takes the rear cover off revealing the element area. I doubt if the heating element is burned out. Typically the small thermostat or thermal fuse link blows before the heating element goes. You would have to see the diagram of your model online. Most sites have the exploded parts view of that section online. If you don't have a meter tester you may have to replace all 3. Some models have them all tied into 1 board. This site has video troubleshooting. http://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Dryer/8-160-1067262-/Samsung-Dryer-doesn-t-heat-DV665J Samsung Dryer Doesn Heat

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.

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.

    Wont dry


    Hello there and welcome to fixya
    This is a fairly common problem in dryers i will post the possible solutions on what to look for and the things you will need to test ok?
    Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. To determine if the heating element is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) To determine if the thermal fuse has blown out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

    My Inglis dryer is overheating. How do I troubleshoot this problem? Thanks...


    did you remove the metal duct to the left of the t-stat and thermal fuse?usually this gets filled with lint and will take out either the thermal fuse or the high limit,pull it off and clean it,also if the vent line is long,you can stick a leaf blower into the end of it and blow it out.most problems i find in dryers is from lint buildup.

    I have an Oasis elite electric dryer model #110.6706 and I do not have heat even the drum is turning.I allready read in the troubleshooting book about fuses or breakers.I check the breakers but I can not...


    if you have circuit breakers in your panel, you won't have fuses also, if you have turned the one controlling the dryer completely off and back on again, thats fine, what your going to have is a burned element on the heating coil,

    My dryer does not heat so it does not dry my clothes


    Hi there,

    Well first of all you can check out power from the house - check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. After then you can check the heating element - Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it, note: electric heating elements are not repairable. Further you can check the thermal fuse - 
    On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse which is about an inch long, is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. 

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks for using FixYa!!

    yes the price of fixing it is less then a new unit most of the time.

    Electric dryer doesn't heat.


    Probably a bad heating element. There are a few different styles, you'll just need to lookup your model number on an appliance parts website, find the right part, and then do a quick search on replacement. There are probably ten or fifteen websites that have instructions to replace heating elements.

    Here's one where you can buy the part, the element is part number 17.

    Whirlpool dryer WED5530SQ0, heats but does not run


    So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!

    Dryer not heating...everything seems OK


    Y'ou are zeroing in on your problem. Read the info below and hopefully you will have your answer:
