Hi,

The dryer spins but there is no heat. I visually opened and closed the breakers..still no heat.

I opened the back of the panel and found the heat element. I turned on the dryer and the element never heated up. Do I need to change the heat elements and thermostats? This dryer is only three years old and seldomly used (as it is in our country house)....

Thanks,

Rolland

First you need to make sure you have 240v at the wall outlet ... If half the braker popped the dryers motor will still run off 120v but the heating element will not heat up.
