Thermostats or thermal fuse more than likely. Use an ohm meter to check the continuity across t stats and thermal fuses. Get a cheap ohmeter at any hardware for around $12

GE profile dryer,Runs fine but no heat

need to have the heat element checked with a multimeter and visually if u can and look for burns and corrosion and breaking of the wire connections. Also have the thermostats checked, Im assuming its electric and not gas? the thermal cut off may be bad and the hi-lo thermostat, these can shut heat off from the dryer. Ive replaced the element on my G.E profile and it wasn't all that hard rather simple.

Dryer not getting hot

First ck and make sure you have 220 volts to the dryer. It will run on 110v if one side of the breaker is bad. The other culprits are a limit switch heating element or thermal fuse. If you have 220 volts and the dryer runs just does not heat first turn off the power to the dryer and unplug the dryer from the outlet. Pull the dryer out and remove the lower back panel it is held on by several 5/16 hex screws. (not the back plate on the switch panel) Remove the back and your heater is on the lower right hand side and is inside an metal shell. The thermal limit is also on the metal shell and will have several wires running to it. And if you trace the wires from the element and this thermal limit it will go to the thermal fuse it is on the lower back slightly to the right of the dryer and has two wires run to it and is about the size of a dime or smaller. Unplug the two wires from the termal fuse and hook them together with a papper clip or just tape them together make sure it doesn't touch metal. (this will short it out) and then plug up the dryer and try it to see if it heats you do not need to hook up the vent. (make sure not to touch the back of the dryer and especially any exsposed wires. If it heats up your thermal fuse is bad replace it. If it does not you should check your heating element first unplug the dryer and reattach the wires to the thermal fuse. Then the heating element metal shell should be removed. First unplug the wires to the heating element and thermal limit switch and mark them so you know where they go. Next remove the screw at the top of the metal shell pickup and pull back on the shell to disengage it from the dryer. You can then remove it and inside is the heating element it is attached to the shell with 5/16 hex screws. Remove the screws and pull the heating element out of the bottom of the metal shell. Look closely and you should see the heating element break. The element is a coiled wire and when it heats up the wire actually grows in length and when it is off it cools and shrinks this causes fatique and the wire breaks over time. If the wire is broke replace the element. Look very closely use a pencil to move the wire slightly it is sometimes very hard to see the break. If broken replace the element and make sure not to touch the new element with your fingers this can case premature hot spots which causes the element to fail prematurely. If the wire is not broken then the thermal limit attached to the metal shell that holds the heating element is bad. Before doing any of the above you should look at all the wires in the back of the dryer and look for burnt or broken wires replace or repair them and check the dryer before any other repairs should be entertained. Before replaceing the back on the dryer clean all of the lint out of the back of the dryer and out of the dryer vent. This is very good insureance for the future of your dryer. Good Luck and I hope this is useful.

Dryer runs hot on low heat setting

What kind of dryer do you have? Some dryers use a bimetal or snap-disc thermostat with a heating element under it to control temperature. the heating element is used for the low heat setting to make it turn off early since it will sense a temperature higher that what is actually there. If the heating element is bad then the thermosat will only operate at the high temperature. You should look at replacing that element.

Dryer not heating, but the heating element looks fine

If it is a 220V. dryer.. it needs 2 fuses. One runs the dryer motor and the other one runs the heating element. Check the main fuse box. Turn off main power before messing with any fuses. Look for 2 big fuses, probably in their own block. You can switch these 2 around and try the dryer again. If it does not come on, then the fuse is bad and needs replaced. If nothing is any different, then the element may need replaced.

Kenmore Dryer Model 110

If all of the components are reading ok then you need a timer. Touch your 2 leads together. 0 ohms rght. That means you have a complete circuit.If you get the 0 reading then the element must be otay. Bad timer. Take that fancy meater of yours and atttach one of them leads to the timer leg marked RH. Yank the wire off the terminal beore you test. Move the timer around. You should get the famous 0 reading along the way. If you don't then that means you have the bad timer.

Maytag dryer: pye2300ayw

yes, it will. you should be able to take off the panel on the bottom of the front of the dryer. way in the back is the heating element. do not put your hands in there with the power on, but start the dryer and look in there and you will see if the heating element comes on. it will be like looking inside your toaster.

Heating elements will not heat

If you dryer is running but not heating then you may have one of the following problems.
Make sure you have 220-240 volts to the machine. If one leg of you breaker has kicked you will only be getting 110 volts this will cause the dryer to run and not heat. Simply kick the breaker off and back on to fix.
If you have enough voltage then you may have a bad thermostat, thermostats or heating element. I recommend you take your heating element off and look for broken lines.check continuity if possible. If the heater is good then go to the thermostats. Check continuity. Replace if you find a bad one. Good luck and I hope this helped.
