SOURCE: dryer won't heat
i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----
Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.
Often 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. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

When you start the dryer , after a few seconds do you hear a distinct click sound from inside the bottom of the dryer at the burner assembly? If you do not, you most likely have a bad thermal fuse, part# 3392519 or 3390719, depending on your dryer. Its the same fuse just different shape, both will work. This is most likely your problem. If you do hear a click, you may have a bad ignitor. Best way to test is to check for 120 at the ignitor. If you have anymore questions or need parts feel free to ask in my forum at www.washermd.com, thanks, Dave

If your flame sensor is open then the ignitor will not fire up. Read more
