Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Sorry to hear that you are having this trouble. Have you tried unplugging your appliance for 5 minutes to do a hard reset yet? If unplugging is not easy to do turning off the breaker for 5 minutes does the same thing.

No

It runs but doesn't heat up. Replaced venting.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Not sure what a multimeter is. Does it check current

y​es it does we would need to check the thermal fuse, and the heater to determine which one has failed in order to replace it.

Where is the thermal fuse located and the heater

I will need your model number to let you know that.

when you open the dryer door the model number should be in there.

most of these parts also have helpful videos to show you how to test them as well. These are all the parts for your unit as well. So if you were to buy a multimeter and test it you will know which part to replace it with.
