CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE OUTLET. THE DRYER WILL RUN WITH ONLY ONE SIDE OF THE 240VOLT CIRCUIT BUT THE DRYER WON'T HEAT.
IF YOU OWN A METER AND KNOW HOW TO USE IT, TAKE THE BACK PANEL OFF OF THE DRYER AND FIND THE HEATER ON THE RIGHT SIDE FACING THE BACK OF THE DRYER(WHIRLPOOL AND KENMORE DRYERS).
CHECK FOR 240 VOLTS AT THE TWO TERMINALS OF THE HEATER. IT WILL BE THE TWO TERMINALS LOWEST TO THE GROUND AND HAS TWO RED WIRES ATTACHED TO THEM. IF NO 240VOLTS, BACK TRACK THROUGH THE CIRCUIT AND CHECK EACH ITEM YOU COME TO. IF YOU FIND 240VOLTS, THAT IS THE BAD PART.

FOR MAYTAG PRODUCTS, REMOVE TWO SCREWS FROM THE BOTTOM FRONT OF THE DRYER AND SWING THE BOTTOM OUT UNTIL THE CLIPS DISENGAGE FROM THE TOP. SET IT ASIDE. THE HEATER IS LOCATED IN A TUBE AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THE INSIDE. CHECK IT THE SAME WAY.

My dryer runs for about 10-20 minutes then shuts off because it must be overheating. After it cools down I can run it again. Is that an element problem?
