Question about Dryers
417.8314221 Electric dryer doesn't get hot but rotates fine.
I read on another page
1) One of the thermostats could have a reset switch on it to cure problem... do not know where to find it or what it looks like! ....
2) May need to replace the element...
3) Could be the exhaust thermostat / or heater and thermostat complete/ check continuity...should be normally closed(complete circuit)
Any help to you ????

Hi there its me trying to repair mine still... Another man has given me these details! :
Most likely possibilities on heating problem. All are listed from most likely to least likely.
1. Thermal Fuse (Located near blower housing)
4. Heating Element
5. Ignitor (Gas Dryers Only)
All parts can be tested with an ohm meter for continuity. Most parts are under $20 with exceptions for the heating element and ignitor. Considering that you had a technician come out to your house, charge would be roughly $120-200. A dryer's life span is usually about 10 years; give or take. For a diagram to locate all parts within your dryer, refer to www3.sears.com with the model number of your dryer. Model number found on the side panel when you open the door of the unit. If you need more assistance, just comment and I will get back on later today or tomorrow.
Alas sears do not seem to do my model and still have not managed to find a diagram to know what I am looking for!

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...
The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...
