Hello. Welcome to Just Answer.
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
Do you have any type of electrical tester?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No we do not

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
OK. We may need one to troubleshoot the issue. Just to make sure I understand, are you saying the dryer gets warm but won't tumble the clothes (the drum won't spin)?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes, but it gets extremely hot

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for the additional information. Since it is heating up, I don't think there is an issue with the power. It sounds like a problem that is internal to the dryer itself. It would be best to move your question to the Appliance Category, which I can do for you. Do you mind standing by? It sometimes takes questions a little time to be moved to a new category after they receive an expert reply in the original category.

That would be great

Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
OK. I'll move it now. Have a blessed day.
