My dryer will not heat on high. It was not warming up at all and my friend changed one of the thermostats. Now it will only heat on medium setting. My friend is no longer available.
You will want to check to make sure that the dryer venting is not clogged. You will want to check from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of your home to make sure that there is not a clogged or restricted vent. You can also take the vent off the back of the dryer and put a stocking over it and check to see if it dries and this will also be a good test to tell you whether it is a clogged vent. If the clothing dries on high then the vent from the inside wall of the home to the outside of the home is clogged.
Dryer runs for a while, then shuts off. After 45 min or so will work again for a while and repeats the process.

dryer not heating ! already replaced heating element what is next?
Answer Mike, check and make sure there is 220-240 VAC at the terminal block on the back of the dryer, or reset the breakers at the breaker box several times. The thermal cut off kit would be the next logical move, but you should test them both for a "closed" circuit with a meter.
