Dryer tumbles, no heat, thermo fuse has been changed. Can it be the cycling thermostat or the heating element?


If you have changed the thermal fuse you may have a defective thermal cutoff (located at the top of the heater housing in the back). The thermal cutoff will come with the high limit thermostat located at the bottom of the heater and you should change both parts if the thermal cutoff is bad.
You can take both of the parts (the heater and the thermal cutoff) to a parts supplier to have them checked for continuity (they should both read "closed" if they are good).
Good luck to you!

Dryer shuts off before load is dry. it will not turn back on for about a half an hour. is this an easy fix?


Yes it is. It is more than likely your high limit thermostat. The high limit thermostat is located on the back of the dryer after the heating element, (right before the entrance into the drying chamber). They high limit and thermal cutoff usually come as a kit because they should be replaced at the same time. The thermal cutoff is located on or around the body of the heating element. good luck!

No heat but already replaced heating elimate


Check the thermal cuttoff. It is located on the element. If it does not have continuity, replace it. Also replace the Hi-limit thermostat, also located on the element, and the operating thermostat, located on the exhaust. These two should cut off the heat before the thermal cutoff blows.

Replaced elements but does not heat in bowl


Check the thermal cutoff located on the element.  It is designed to blow if the element gets too hot.  If the thermal cutoff is blown, the hi limit thermostat (also located on the element) will also need to be replaced.  It will have two terminals on it and if it is good it will have continuity.  Trace the wires back from the element.  The first one it comes to will be the thermal cutoff, next will be the high limit thermostat.

Runs, doesn't get hot


Either your element is out our your thermal cutoff.  Check your element for continuity if it is open, replace the element.  If not check the thermal cutoff which is on top of the element.  If the thermal cutoff is open you will also need to replace the operating thermostat and Hi limit thermostat.  The high limit is on the element below the thermal cutoff, and the opperating thermostat is on the exhaust duct.

No heat.


If the drum turns then either the element itself is broken or the thermal cutoff is blown.  The thermal cutoff is located on the element and is designed to keep the element from getting to hot.  If that is blown you will also need to replace your operating thermostat which turns the element on and off. is should be located on the exhaust.  If the drum is not spinning at all it is most likely the thermal fuse which is also located on the exhaust.

Clothes dryer not heating


I eventually changed the thermal cutoff switch and the high limit thermostat as suggested in one of your replies to another consumer and now the dryer is working fine. Thanks.
