Question about Dryers
Before replacing any part on the unit, better to check and test first the FF;
A heating element can burn out and not trip the circuit breaker or blow fuse. The heating element can be checked for breaks (continuity) using an ohm meter. If it proves to be open, then you will need to replace the element.
A lot of machines have a thermal fuse that is located beside the exhaust duct inside the back panel. It'll probably be resin covered and inside a white housing. You can use an ohm meter to check the continuity on this too. If it proves to be defective then you will have to replace it.
If there is no heat, don't forget to check the main power feed and terminal block. Remember that the dryer can still operate with only partial power.
Hope this initial info/idea helps.
Let me know for any clarifications
