Dryer not heating up

My Estate by whirlpool dryer is not heating up. This is the second problem I have had with this dryer. When I put the dryer on 60 mins. it would stop once it reached 30 mins. and I would have to restart the dryer. Now the dryer is running but not heating up. We have checked the heating elements, no problems there. What could be the problem? I would like to do it myself instead of paying a repair man.

Thanks

    My Whirlpool dryer is not heating. It is not a vent problem. Could it be the pilot lite?

Yup.. Same as a water heater.. Generally will run a constant 120V to the bottom Element and you can see 240 at the top and supply all day.. (Until the reset snaps).. Check for a Thermal and its probably the issue).. Snap disk in the shape of a football, Silver w/2-3 wires I/O.. Be careful if you dont work on 240V or electrical for that matter.(UNPLUG PERIOD)...Mine kicked out the other day when the main lost 120 and the house half quit..

Inside the tub in the dryer itself is a heating element behind the screen. Try replacing it. Unplug the machine first though.

No heat


mcwilliams if you pull the over off the front of the dryer at the bottom you can see the gas burner assy. Put the dryer on time dry and start the dryer, you should see a glow from the ignitor, then hear a click, then the heat come on. In the auto dry mode, the timer advances along with the dryness level. No heat, No timer advancing. If you don't see a glow, there should be a thermosat on the heater can, see if it is tripped. If so if it is resetable, reset then try again. You may have a bad ignitor.
