Check the breakers, 1/2 can trip and it is not evident. (so this means that the machine will run, but not have power to the burner circuit) Turn breakers FULLY (PRESS HARD) OFF, and turn on again and test.

if no go, surgery will be needed, there are many thermal limiters and the element itself that need to be investigated.

Does my dryer have a fuse in it


Sounds like either the thermostat which will be close to the heating elements, if not that, then the heating element...I'd guess it's the thermostat. Cheap fix

Dryer heat is intermittent


It is probably clogged in the exhaust where the lint tube connects to your wall/house. Inside the wall can get very clogged with humidity and lint creating a goo that blocks the air from escaping.
Disconnect the dryer from the wall, put on some rubber gloves and reacg up into the wall and you can pull out globs of old wet lint, coins, and other junk trapped in there. Secondly, check on the outside of your house where the exhaust is released and make sure it's not clogged there too.

Dryer will not heat up


A clothes dryer can go for years without any problems. We come to rely on our clothes dryer, and we can even begin to take it for granted. Then one day we attempt to use our clothes dryer and it has no heat to it. Now we have entered the world of clothes dryer repair, and it is a world that can get expensive. Before you call out the repairman, try some troubleshooting tips to see if you can get the heat flowing back to your dryer again.

    Lint One of the easiest fixes for a dryer that will not heat up is cleaning out the lint trap and cleaning out the lint from the dryer exhaust. The lint trap should be cleaned out before each usage. Not only does cleaning the lint trap prevent the possibility of a fire, but a lint trap that is filled beyond capacity will cause the dryer to not heat up. If the lint trap is clean, then inspect the exhaust hose and vent next. If the exhaust hose and vent are cluttered up with lint, then the dryer will not generate heat. You can use your hand to clean out the vent, and broom handle to clean out the vent duct in your house. The flexible hose can be detached and cleaned by hand as well. Thermal Fuse A dryer will run on for a very long time, and when the thermal fuse gives up then there will be no more heat. Finding and replacing the thermal fuse is not difficult, but in order to do it you will need the manual for your dryer. Each dryer model is different as far as how to open up the cabinet, and locate the thermal fuse. You may need to purchase the thermal fuse online from the manufacturer, or you may be able to get a universal fuse that fits your dryer from an appliance repair store. Contact the manufacturer of your dryer to see what kind of thermal fuse they recommend. Thermal fuses cannot be repaired, they must be replaced. In most cases it is easy to tell if your thermal fuse needs replacing as you will see the center of it is burned out. Heating Element Another main culprit to a dryer not heating up is the heating element. According to Repair Clinic.com, the heating element is a coil found in the back of the dryer that the dryer uses to create heat. The only way to tell if a heating element is bad is to check the consistency of the current it generates with an ohm meter. If you are unfamiliar with how to do this, you can either replace the heating element and assume it is faulty, or you can have a repair professional test your heating element for you.please comment on these solution by say how helpful.by rate or vote

The dryer runs fine, but there is no heat. I


You will find the heating elements on the driers are very robust. Normally what happens is there is either a build up of lint which has possibly blocked the air inlet grid,.or possibly being to close to the wall. This in turn restricts cooling airflow .There is a thermal protection thermostat which will activate and open circuit if temperature is exceeded at any time.Need to locate the thermostat and if lucky, you could simply press a button and it will reset. If not, you may need to replace that defective one. Typically the thermostat is at the back and close to the element.

Plugged venting causing low heat and poor lint output?


you need to check the dryer vent hole on the back of the dryer,make sure it's not blocked,also check the wall vent for the same thing,most of the time if there is a clogg it holds the moisture in the dryer and it take forever to dry,you can use a shop vac to **** out any clogged lint in dryer and wall ,then if you have a leaf blower put it on the wall side and blow it it all out.let me know how you do-mike
