    Hi there,
    there are va few things that it could be....I would first go and check to make sure you have not tripped the breaker on your home breaker box. Go to it and check to make sure both sides of the 220 volt breaker are not tripped. What I often do is just reset them both and it will make sure you have got it if that was t5he problem.If this is not the problem you will need to start checking some of the components in the dryer and you may or may not want to do this yourself. If you do the first thing I would do is check the element if it is an electric dryer. If it is a gas dryer you need to check to see if the pilot light is still lit.check these two things and see what happens. the make and model would be helpful to go any further..

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

Samsung dryer will not heat


Sounds like the heating element might be bad. Make sure your settings are set correctly (which I'm sure you have already done). Check to make sure the power cord has been hooked up correctly on the back of the dryer (may want to get someone with an electrical background). Unplug first. Could be a thermostat problem as the elements on some models heat up when needed to maintain a certain temperature. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I have linoleum tile adhesive in my dryer, how can I remove it so I can dry my clothes someone put the towels that I was using by mistake in the dryer with the ...


You are going to need a hair dryer or heat gun; a throw away towel and some paper towels. Start out heating the adhesive until liquidy and then use the paper towel to absorb it. That should take care of most of it.
Then slightly dampen the throw away towel, put heat on the remaining adhesive until tacky then put the dampened towel over the adhesive and continue to heat the towel until the water steams.

That is way that works best for me.

The dryer runs fine but has no heat. The exhaust and lint screen are clear of debris. It is a Maytag MD3000


The Heating Element may be gone, or you might be real lucky and have a loose or dirty connection.
You might want to throw the Breaker Switch or unplug the unit before you do anything (220!!!).
