Hi Robertkabbani,

 

Usually when a dryer stops heating, it is due one of two problems.

 

First the gas control valve has failed on a gas dryer or the electrical heating element on an electric dryer has failed.

 

Dryers have thermostats called thermistors. The thermistors control the heat range.

 

There are three, one for low medium and high heat.

 

If one of the thermistors fails you dryer may have reduced heat or no heat at all.

 

If you like to try and repair your dryer yourself, go to www.appliancerepair.net. There you will find a complete troubleshooting and repair guide for your dryer.

 

Mike,
