Sounds like your heating element is bad, but this problem can also be caused by the thermostats being faulty.
Normally the heating element, and thermostats are located in the air tube that goes from the blower to the drum.
Hope this helps

The dryer will not heat up


Instructions
    • 1 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.
    • 2 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.
    • 3 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.
    • 4 Consult a technician if troubleshooting does not resolve the problem.

Dryer will not heat up.......... Clearered lint path but still no heat...... Troubleshooting mentions a curcuitbreaker...... Where is it located? Do you have any other ideas? Please respond ASAP...


The circuit breaker that they are talking about is the breaker box in your house. This is where your breakers are for the whole house(the fuse box) The breaker for the dryere should be listed on a list most likely on the inside of the door to the panel.You can check the list to see what number the dryer is on and then find it in the breakers. It is a double switch breaker because the dryer runs on 220 volts not 110 volt. The reason for this is the heating element that is in the dryer requires more power. Resetg both of the switches assigned to the dryer as they will be side by side ,Each one of those is a 110 volt breaker.after reseting them close the panel and go back and check the dryer. If it works be sure to click on the yes box on the site here so we know we helped you out. Thanks for your time and good luck...bye for now

My dryer is blowing air but it is not getting hot or drying clothes


either the fuse for the heat portion of the dryer( in your fusebox or breaker box) has blown or been tripped, or you have a broken heater element in the dryer. the most common is a tripped or blown breaker or fuse. check the breaker box/ fuse box first.

Barrel of dryer turns but no heat


Your heating element needs to be replaced, or the 240 breaker in your breaker box has tripped. I was a maytag technician for several years...So, check your breaker box for any tripped breakers or the heating element in the dryer needs to be replaced, or the t.stat for the element has blown.

No heat, dryer runs fine it will not heat up. vent is clear all the way to the outside. I think it may be the fuse but I don't know the location, can you help?


hi..
Check the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical box. Push off, then on. If the breakers trip immediately, then you have a direct short circuit in the dryer, usually the heating element which involves removing the drum to get at the element(s). If the breakers hold, then try the dryer. If you get heat--ok. If drum turns, but no heat--check with a voltmeter across the two slanted slots in the power socket. You should read ~220 volts AC. If near zero, then one of the breakers is probably bad. Get an electrician to replace the breaker pair...

LG tromm electric dryer not heating up


Most likely you have a bad electrical connection, resulting in only 120 volts to dryer. (enough to run the 120 volt motor, but not enough to power the 240 volt heating elements) Turn off breaker. Make sure wires on breaker are tight. Make sure nutral wire is tight in breaker box. Take cover off dryer recepticle and check the wires in it to make sure they are all tight. Check that the connections of the cord at the dryer are tight.

Your dryer may not be heating because the electric elements have gone bad on your unit. Replacement is easy enough although purchasing the element box may be costly. First check your breaker box to see if it has tripped the breaker, on occasion only half the breaker will flip so that the dryer will run but not heat up. Flip the breaker all the way off then back on and see if that helps, if not get ready to purchase elements.
