Question about Dryers
Dryer does not heat up. Power and element are ok.
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer
overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or
stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the
dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a
meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not
broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

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.
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
