A:

There are actually several reasons an electric dryer might run but not heat.

The wiring diagram below will give you an idea of the potential causes of this problem.

First thing to do is check the circuit breakers for the dryer. If one trips then the dryer might have 120 volts to run the motor but not have 240 volts to dry with. Check the two circuit breakers for the dryer.

If the dryer is running the thermal fuse is not at fault.

If you follow the highlighted circuit in the image below the problem might be the timer, thermal cut-off, operating thermostat, hi-limit thermostat, element or even the motor switch.

I'd suggest you start with the control thermostat since it easy to access next to the thermal fuse. The thermal cut-off and hi-limit can be next. You can use an ohm meter to check the continuity. If any show an open circuit then that's the bad part. Remember to unplug the dryer first.

The 2nd image will show how to remove the rear panel to access the parts.

You can reply with any additional details for further assistance with this problem.
