Question about Dryers
Well first of all you may check out the Heating element - If a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter (volt meter). No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it (electric heating element not repairable) further you may check the Thermal fuse - A thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse, which is about an inch long, usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. And the last dought goes on the Wiring - you need to deep inspect the wiring in your dryer and check for any burnt sign.
