Not heating

Check/Repair

Check/Repair

If the dryer doesn't heat, unplug the dryer and replace any defective heating system components. If the dryer heats, clean the lint screen because decreased air flow due to a clogged lint screen prevents the load from drying. Clear the exhaust vent duct system of clogs.
