My Samsong dryer runs and turns, but won't produce heat. Would I likely be able to look inside and see the problem? How easy would it be for me to fix it?

This will probably be your heating element, 99% of the time it is. You can look online with your model # and find a replacement one. I would need to know the exact model of the dryer to provide more help. I hope this helps you out :)

My dryer has power and tumbles, but produced no heat (tested with vent tube off). I reset the circuit breaker and now it produces heat. What is up?

If your dryer is clogged up this will not produce heat inside the dryer but will produce heat to the vent tube. Try unclogging the Vent tube and see what happens.

Whirlpool Cabrio dryer gas does not stay lit after a few minutes.

It sounds like your solenoid coil(s) might be no good. Easy fix and not very expensive.

Gas Dryer won't produce heat

Hi, thanks for the inquiry.

It's most likely a thermal fuse. Basically, the voltage has to go through the fuse before it goes to the ignitor.
It should only cost you about $90 to repair if a technician comes out to fix a fuse.
I wouldn't try to repair it unless you have some knowledge of electrics. If your dryer is less than 12 years old, I would recommend you fix it. Hope this helps.

Best of luck :)

My dryer is running but it doesnt producing any heat. The dryer has air moving thru the system and the timer but no heat? it worked yesterday

One of three things is your issue.

1. Thermal fuse is bad
2. Thermistor is bad
3. Heat element is bad.

This is a newer type dryer that probably has control board also. Probably gonna need a service tech to come inspect unless inside parts are like an older style dryer.

Old dryers are easy to fix, but these new ones have parts like a computer in them making it harder to take apart and fix unless you have technicial background.

Make sure your lint trap stays clean all the time, this is usually the cause of one of the three parts above to go out prematurally.
Hope this helps
