Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
Do you have a model number and is your dryer not heating?
OK so you'll need to check several thermostats for continuity. F140, F130 on the side of the heating element and K560 on the blower wheel housing all need to be tested. Below is a link to the diagram so you can see what parts I'm talking about.

If any of them do not have continuity, then replace them. Other than that, make sure the dryer is getting 220 volts. The dryer will run with 110 volts but it won't heat without 220 volts. If that all checks good and you have 220 volts to the back of the dryer, you need to replace the main control board.

Yes I understand that, but you need to test those parts still because one of them could have gone bad.
well as I mentioned in my first responses, there are 4 thermostats to check. If they all check good then you need to make sure you're getting 220 volts to the dryer and if that is good then you need a new main control board.
If one of those thermostat on the side of the heater has failed again, that means your vent is being restricted through your house.
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
