Question about Dryers
The dryer seems fine in all apsects except it does not heat. I suspect a thermcouple or thermostat, but I don't know where to look for them.
Any help would be appreciated.

You can get a heating element at any junkyard for like 5 dollars

I had the same problem. To get a good look at the ceramic igniter, it helps to remove the three sensors from the front of the burner chamber. Upon inspection, my igniter looked fine. So I reinstalled and reconnected the sensors, and everything worked!
I suspect there was a loose electrical connection at the sensor closest to the corner of the unit. Anyway sofar so good.

If the dryer doesn't heat at all, the most common cause is that the ceramic igniter is broken. These are very fragile, and easily cracked in transit or moving around. It's located just inside the front panel on the right side. You need to remove the front panel by removing the two little plastic inserts on the top front and the screws under them.
If the dryer heats, but the clothes take forever to dry, the automatic lint scraper may not be working, and the lint screen could be clogged. Remove the lint basket (inside the drum on the left), take out the screw behind it, and remove the whole round plastic piece. You will see a lint screen all around the outside, or a big wad of lint all the way around, if it's not working. If lint, just carefully pull it out with a small screwdriver. (DON'T poke a hole through the kint screen). Hope this helps
