Question about Dryers
My dryer does not heat. Everything works but the heat. Yes, it is an old machine, but hope you can give me some insight on what the problem might be. Could there be a fuse somewhere on the machine that could have blown? Please help if you can

I would check your thermal cutouts near the heater element. If they have continuity, see if your element is getting voltage. If it is, relplace the element.

check the thermal fuse if it is blown also change the high limit thermal cut-off fuse www.repairclinic.com shows your parts. go there and enter model number. Also check the heat element. to get into it remove the lint filter and the two screws you'll see there then pry the top up at the front corners. And through the back you should find the heat element and blower housing and thermal fuse and high limit fuse and cycling thermostat.

The heater element may have failed - however, first check the Thermal limit fuse on the rear of the machine (silver disc held by 2 screws). Check for continuity.

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

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