I have replaced the thermal limiter and the thermostat. My dryer is still not heating, but otherwise functions as it should. What should I do next?
There are 2 components other than the thermostats which would cause the heating element not to work. First is the motor and second the timer. The best option is to disconnect the power to the unit and access the heating element. Disconnect one wire that is going to the heating element, preferably the one on the thermostat side. Plug the unit back up and using a multimeter you will want to turn the dryer on and test for 120 vac at the terminal on the heater where the wire was disconnected. What this will do is eliminate the heater element itself and the motor. If there is 120 vac at this point then you know the heater is good and the motor is good because the other 120 vac coming through the thermostats is the timer side of the circuit. If there is not 120 vac at that point then you will want to test the other terminal on the heater and check for 120 vac. If there is not 120 vac then the motor would be bad and if there is 120 vac then the heater would be the issue.
How come my dryer get hot in the air dry cycle and stays hot and wont cool down?
Answer Hello Paul. Check the element and see if it is grounded and touching metal. This will cause it to stay on and not cycle off.
My dryer gets real hot and don't cool down at the end of the cycle. What could be causing this?
Answer Hello Paul. It sounds like the vent may be clogged and need to be cleaned out. Check the venting system on the unit.
My dryer is taking way to long to dry clothes.
Answer Hello Dave. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
My dryer is getting hot but not as hot as it should and its taking forever to dry a load of clothes. What is the problem?

What is the problem with dryer if E63 comes up on screen?
Answer Hello RT. The error code E63 is a No heat issue. You will need to test the element in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My dryer runs fine but doesn't get hot. What could the problem be?
This issue could be one of several issue. The first thing that you will want to check is to make sure that the thermal fuse and Hi temperature are good by checking them for continuity. If they check ok then you will then want to determine which side of the heating circuit you are loosing power from. You will want to access the heater, disconnect the power to the unit. With the power disconnected then disconnect one side of the heating element. With the wire disconnected you will check from the loose wire to chassis ground to make sure that there is 120 vac. Keeping the wire loose you will then check the other wire that is still attached to the heating element for 120 vac. The unit must be running to do this. If the power checks ok with 120 vac on each leg then the heater is faulty. IF there is power missing from one side then that would be the issue. If the one that goes to the thermostat is showing power then the timer side would be good but if this is the side not getting power then the timer is the issue. If there is no power at the other side then the motor that would be the issue.
I have a Frigadaire dryer and it displays E-64 also it doesn't get hot just warm. What could be the problem?
Answer Hello Micah. The E64 indicates a heater open circuit, heating element or wiring defect. Check the heating circuit of the unit.
