Dryer drum spins but there is no heat


The coil of the heating element may be cut off. Thermal protection has tripped. If the heat sensor detects too high a temperature, it will turn off the heating elements. Check the air circulation and that the impeller is secure. A specialist can check the heating element with a tester. Sometimes a separate thermal fuse is installed to turn off the heating elements if a faulty thermal overload switch fails. On some models, a thermal fuse completely shuts down the machine in the event of a short circuit.
