Is dryer getting warm at all. If it is your heater and t-stats are fine. Make sure it is exhausting to uotside properly. Turn dryer on and go to outside exhaust. you should leel air coming thru pretty good. If low air flow pull dryer from wall, disconnect hose at wall and using leaf blower blow the exhaust out to the outside. Impotant thing to remember is blow from behind dryer at the wall to the ouside. Not outside in. Also, electric works better than gas blower due to exhaust fumes caused by gas leaf blowers.
more than likely the heating element has gone out. if your clothes have no heat then the element is the most likely cause. you can get one for anywhere between $30 - $50. you'll need to know model and serial #'s. usually easy to replace.
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured
with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case
it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes.
Replace the element if found defective.
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer
overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or
stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the
dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a
meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not
broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
If you can turn it on and have the door open, hold the door switch in and see if you have a glow from the heating element. If not, your element is broken. That is if it is an electric dryer. If it is a gas dryer you need to check the pilot light or the thermo sensor.
