My dryer runs (including timer functions) but no heat whatsoever. I think the problem started after a particularily large load involving a blanket and bed sheets. Not sure if maybe a vent or something involving air circulation got interupted and blew out one of the parts related to heating (thermal fuse, thermostat, etc.)? I have not tested anything yet - hoping someone can steer me in the right direction before I start taking the machine apart. Thanks in advance.

The first thing that needs to be done is for someone to confirm the full 240 volts is coming to the dryer's wall outlet and to the dryer's main terminal block.Once that is confirmed individually testing the possibilities listed at the following link may be needed to isolate the cause in your case.

If you have any specific questions, post them in a reply here.
