Dryer stays very hot and does not cool down.
You will want to check the venting of the unit to make sure that from the blower wheel to the outside of your home is clear from obstructions which is the most common thing for this issue.
My dryer turns on but there is not heat coming from it. We replaced the heating element but still no help what could it be please help so that I don't have to keep guessing and replace lots of parts
You will want to check the thermal fuse on the heater and test the thermostats. To test them you will be looking for continuity. If there is continuity then they are good and if not then replace the part. If they do check ok then 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. If there is 120 vac at each point then the heater is faulty.
Drier starts and heats but never stops. only stops if you turn off manualy
With the unit not shutting off, this issue would most likely be caused by a faulty timer which is part number 8182522.
My dryer is function and can run cycles, but there is no heat. I have cleaned the vent and made sure nothing is being blocked.
Answer Hello Will. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. 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
