HI, I have a ASCO T721 dryer. The heat temp is too low. Yesterday it took 2&1/2 hrs. to dry 3 pairs of small sweat socks and a few other(lighter) items. Sheeesh. this is suppose to conserve energy? If there is anyway I can adjust the heating element plz let me know. I am an electrician by trade, It is stacked on a washer in the closet. I just need to know where the temp. adj. is located.Thank you.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly.

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Make sure the lint trap in the door is clean. It has a plastic cover that opens. Disconnect the venting at the rear and run a load, if it works you have a restriction in the hose after the dryer or in the wall past the hose.
Dryers could not be simpler devices. I assume that since all you
mention is that the dryer is not heating, everything else on the dryer
is working as normal. ie. You could put in wet clothes, set the timer
start the dryer and the drum starts turning and air comes out of the
exhaust. It just happens not to be hot. I am also assuming that you
know how to use the drier and that it is not set on tumble (no heat).
that is the case, the heating element is almost certainly burned out.
Basically this is the part of the dryer that glows red (just like an
electric stove) when electricity passes through it. Unplug the dryer
and see how it can be taken apart. Many open from the top or the back.
They are all slightly different. The heating element will be located
near the blower fan typically at the bottom of the dryer. Figure out
how to get at this, pull the old element out and then replace it with
your new one. There will be two electrical connections. You may even
see where the element just slides into position by the blower and can
be removed with a couple of screws.
You should only need a screw driver to do all of this.
