might be your heating element that is burnt check the model of your dryer then look upnon youtube to replace the heating element simple and cheaper can buy the specific element with the serial part number on the original part :)
it could be the heating element even though it is just over a year old, i have seen heating elements go out on 3 month old dryers, it also could be a thermostat the best thing to do is make sure it is getting the full 220 volts going to it, if it only has 110 volts the motor will run and have no heat and vise versa, then if that is good get to the heating element and look it over real good most of the time the heating coil will be broke into it wont look burnt just broke
It could be the high limit switch. It is about 1 in dia. And 1/4in tall. And it is hooked up in line with the heating element. There is two of them that can cause it. Take an ohm meter and check to see if power will run through it. 0 ohms.
I had the same problem. I called the repair man and my heating elements were broken, I had them replaced and now my dryer works fine. For me getting it repaired was cheaper then buying a new one. Your repair man should give you a free estimate on the cost
Not all that familiar with the Hoover Dryer line but in general if you have 12 volts being fed to the heater element.. you identified why it isn't heating .. Your husband is correct in that heater power should be line voltage.. You may have a non-resettable thermal fuse that has opened or a relay that feeds power to the heater is not being commanded to turn on by the logic on the control board. If your husband is handy and technically competent, he should verify that there is 220VAC at the input termnal block of the dryer itself ( carefully) to make sure you don't have one phase missing.. Those are the chief suspects... not sure that helped you but you now have a few ideas where to look...
I have a bit of experience with Malbers. When the dryer won't heat the most likely cause is the heating element wearing out. See my other posts to the same problem by saerching Malbers problems here. If you need more help, contact me.
