How old id the system?
If warrenty is over, Open or remove metal covers.
Before you start, unplug your unit.
After you removed panels or opened your unit, on one side should be the element compartment. At the bottom of compartment, is two wires. remove and then take a Ohm meter and check the element. That ok you won't hurt yourself, because you unplugged it.
If you have a reading or the needle moves... your element is fine.
That would mean something else is wrong.. Follow the plug into the unit..
Are the wires burnt, Has one falling off... It needs replacing
Sometime the circuit breaker trips... only half.. so go and reset your breaker and put the dryer back together

    The circuit breaker did the trick. Never would have thought about looking there since it was running fine, just not getting hot anymore all of the sudden. Thanks a bunch!

The dryer will not heat, everything else works.


If this dryer is electric and everything are working the most probable cause should be the high temp thermostat located within the heating elements and also the overtemp sensor located close to dryer exhaust vent. If this is a gas dryer check the electric igniter located within the burner area.
