follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
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.

Hi,

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 dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


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


check out this electric no heat tip...

1. Does the dryer light come on when you open the door? If so, it's likely the belt is broken. You will need to replace the belt.

2. No dryer light? it's likely then that the thermal fuse is blown. They are located in different places on different dryers. On Maytag and many Whirlpool dryers, it is located under the top, right next to the heating element with two white wires leading to it. You can test the fuse by bypassing it TEMPORARILY. If you connect the two wires together or make a jumper for them, (always shut the dryer circuit breaker off FIRST before attempting this) and the dryer magically comes alive (after you turn the circuit breaker back on) then you know what's wrong. Just changing the fuse is often not enough - you should find out why your dryer overheated. (poor airflow - blocked duct, etc)

I know it isn't much help but look for wear on the idler arm bracket, it will tell you which way it faces either up or down....then look for wear where the idler arm bracket hooks to the frame of the dryer....also you will look to where the spring attaches to the frame of the dryer when you attach it to the idler arm there will be a slight amount of wear where the spring attaches to the frame....
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE RIGHT. EASIEST WAY TO TELL IS PRY UP THE TOP PANEL. 1ST REMOVE LINT FILTER AND 2 SCREWS BEHIND FILTER ON TOP PANEL.. GET A FLAT BLADE SREWDRIVER AND TOWARD THE FRONT OF THE TOP PANEL THEIR R 2 BLK CLIPS ONE ON EACH SIDE PUSH IN AND THAT SHOULD RELEASE THE CLIPS ONCE YOU GET THE TOP UP. LOOK AT DRIUM IF YOU DONT SEE A BLACK BELT GOING AROUND TUB THEN BELT IS BROKE. PART # 341241 SELLS FR ABOUT 15-28.99. WE STK IT. ITS A VERY COMMON BELT. SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET LOCALLY. IF YOU NEED IT WE HAVE THEM.

does your dryer have a dry sensor ? if so try changing the dial to a different setting that doesn't use the sensor, also some models have a separate button to turn off the dry sensor. it is meant to save energy if your clothes are dry before the time you set
