Gas or electric dryer? If it is electric the heating element may be bad or a thermal limit switch near the heating element may be defective. Is the outside vent plugged?

My dryer is 4 years and the heater wont heat up but the tumbler tumbles


First check your dryer vent, make sure that it is venting properly. If that doesn't work then it is your dryer heating elements.

Breaker popped, so went and turned it back on. Now there is no heat. What could be the problem?


In your dryer behind the tumbler there are coils with insulators. up against the dryer wall their should be many holes that allow the heat to come into the tumbler. run your dryer about 3 minutes with settings on heat , then open the door and peer thru to the back while the tumbler is spinning. if you don't see part or full radiat heat. the heating coils will have to be replaced. you can purchase them from most appliance parts store. just make sure you provide the brand and model # and possibly the ser#. good luck!

Dryer heats okay, but it doesn't run.


You likely have a broken tumbler belt. You will need to replace it.

Tumbler spins, heat won't go on, timer won't work


It is your operating thermostat. It controls the heat and runs the timer down.

Maytag electric dryer. Tumbler won't turn.


The first thing to check is the drive belt. you will need to turn the dryer on its side and look to see if the drive belt is broken. If this is o.k it will be the motor.
